Our group had the entire place to ourselves for a dinner buffet on a Thursday evening. The location was excellent around the water and there was a two man "band" which was great. This is a fun place and is interestingly decorated. The food was good but I cannot comment on the prices since it was a group event. It is basically a casual bar but the food is more than just bar food.

Stan's has an outside PARTY every Sunday afternoon starting at 1pm. It's SO MUCH Fun!!!! There are "live" bands and plenty of "people watching" to keep you entertained for hours!!! Food is just typical "Bar Food".

Live music, good drinks, fun atmosphere. We didn't eat there, but enjoyed the afternoon very much. Don't let the rustic look fool you, worth spending a couple hours.
