We ate here for dinner. Spent the day at Jackson Square caught dinner before the parade. Waitstaff very friendly and great with suggestions. We had the Club Stanley & the Reuben, onion rings and drinks. Sandwiches were fresh, tasty, and plentiful.

Enjoyed dinner with family before the Crew de Vieu parade last evening. Great location on Jackson Square. Food was good with typical Nawlins options. Had gumbo, shrimp poboy, and red beans. Not the best but good. Service was good. Worth giving it a try.

We have visit Stanley multiple times for breakfast. Bacon cheese grits are wonderfully rich. Adult milkshakes are great for warm days strolling around the French Quarter.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
