Great location and the interior is beautiful. Their menu is reasonably priced for the quality of the food and their location. I had my first taste of New Orleans food there and I loved it. Their bowl of red beans and rice is served with a piece of garlic bread. The waiting staff is also very friendly. Great place overall.

3 day visit and we ate at Stanley twice! Lunch on day 1 was very good. Chicken Caesar salad was done in a unique way with a spicy flavor. Abita Light. Sunday Brunch on last day. Grits with cheese and bacon were to die for. Served a very nice Mimosa and gave me a to-go cup on the way out!... More

Party of six settled in for an adventure with Melanie, our waitress extraordinaire. She was attentive, energetic, funny and all around delightful. The food is fresh, hot and delicious but the servings can be inconsistent. The rice and beans could choke a pig, but the eggs seemed a little lonely on their plates. The grits with cheese and bacon are... More

We came across Stanley's while looking for a good place to have dinner. The waiter was wonderful and friendly. We had some great local beer. The hamburger was very delicious. We would come back if we are in New Orleans again.

We went there for brunch in our way out of town. There was a small wait, so we headed next door to their bar to get a Bloody Mary. This place was excellent! Boyfriend had corned beef hash, and I had red beans and rice, plus fried shrimp. I couldn't leave NOLA without having those things. I was so happy... More

On the corner of Javkson Square this is a great cafe for watching New Orleans locals and tourist. An all day menu with a mixture of breakfast foods and other delious edibles. Staff are friendly and service is good.

Husband and I ate dinner here, he had a burger and I had the red beans and rice. Mine were very spicy but good flavor and he enjoyed his burger. It was good, service was friendly and attentive but didn't wow me. Right on Jackson Square so it was nice to sit and people watch.

We had breakfasts here two mornings in New Orleans. Staff were lovely and again kept our coffee and water filled up all the time. We were offered alcohol additions to our coffee and also desserts after our breakfasts. The first morning I had the Stanley breakfast with Creole potatoes which were yummy. The second day I had a double burger... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
