After a long week of work and travel, we were looking for a quite but good meal. Stanford's did not disappoint. My husband had the prime rib and I had the special, beef filet medallions with sweet, sticky rice. I was pleasantly surprised to find the steak I ordered rare, actually came rare. Both our dinners were delicious, and the... More

Can get crowded at times. Service is not what it used to be.when Bob Farrell was one of the corporation founders. Still good food and now since they changed owners the happy hour menu is not what it used to be. ( I attended the grand opening as a guest).

I certainly didn't have a good experience at this place. Decided to wash my glass myself because I noticed too many flys hovering around the bar area. The food is classic fast food type so certainly not coming back.

This restaurant has so many different offerings it would work for people wanting different items. All of the food we purchased was very good as was the service.

My daughter and I had lunch here. The food is always tasty. She had the crab and cheese sandwich on Foccia bread. I chose the Seared Ahi salad and a cup of seafood chowder. Super-fantastic soup loaded with clams and fish.

We have usually always had really good meals and good service at Stanford's. The last time we went, the service was terrible; the food took a long time to reach us; and each of us was disappointed in our meal. I am hoping this was a one time bad experience. We won't be going there again soon. For their prices,... More

Recommended for a nice dinner. It's not he most amazing food but excellent none-the-less. You can't go wrong eating a nice dinner here with friends or business associates. The menu is solid and not overwhelming with interesting fish and pasta special entrees. The service was excellent and very accommodating for guests with special dietary needs or wants. We did experience... More

Went to Stanford's for the first time to have dinner. I was very impressed. The food and service were excellent. My hubby had prime rib and I had ribs and halibut. Very enjoyable meal. Was a little pricey but you get what you pay for. We will probably be back.

I used to really like Stanford's, but the quality is just not there anymore. The waiters try like heck, but the food is just bland and not hot. I need hot (temperature-wise) food, and it needs to be not so bland. Maybe that's what millenials want. Don't know. Might go back for lunch - you know like fish and chips... More
