Bright ,light, place to have lunch in Jackson Square area. A Besh restaurant paramor to Stella.
We had Po Boys of Roast Beef, Oyster, and Soft shelled crab, onion rings, and gumbo.
Assured the soft shelled crab were fresh and not frozen.......yet no where else in New Orleans were soft shelled crabs available. Does Stanley have a secret source or do the wait staff just lie? Do they keep the shedders in the basement coaxing them along even into December? Or do they figure if you ask if they are fresh in December you will not know enought to know the difference?
We were just off the plane and needed to eat and we had heard good things about Stanley. Everything was adequate, not outstanding and not much of a wow factor.
Along with nine beers our total including tax and tip was $168 or $28 each.
Paul was our server and worked hard.
We received what we payed for., nothing special, a filling lunch for hungry tourists.
