It keeps getting better...My boyfriend ordered the prime rib for the second time and he said that it was 10 times better than the first time. Also, if you haven't you gotta go for brunch, food is delicious!!!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNever fails to deliver awesomenessAwesome again. The chicken is amazing. The service is impeccable. We will keep coming back.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprisingly excellent brunch!We went to Stanford Grill for Sunday brunch for our first anniversary. We've been there for dinner a few times, but this was our first brunch experience, and we were really impressed by the food! The benedicts were amazing (we got the crab & the filet mignon benedicts). We enjoyed the free mimosa and the french press coffee. Stanford Grill is a great place for a nice, relaxing, not-your-average brunch. It set the mood for a wonderful day.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great the serviceFood was great the service was not the best. Great bar and patio seating. Overall we had a great dinner5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat on the PatioThis is the right time to visit Stanford Grille because nature provides a warm and wonderful backdrop to patio dining. I took two business associates to lunch the other day and truly enjoyed the outdoor dining. The tables are well separated so your conversations remain private and the food---well I never have anything but high marks for their efforts. Green salad with salmon filet, club sandwiches large enough to share with two and wonderful, witty wait staff with a friendly smile and sense of humor. Go now.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food great serviceNice variety of food
Many specials plus great basic menu5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerMy husband and I celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary. We've been to the Stanford Grill on many occasions since it opened. Although the noise level is high, we still enjoyed the food. The wait staff is always courteous and friendly. Only had a problem with my dessert, but they didn't charge me for it. Looking forward to out next visit.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMStanford Grill fits the billGreat place for a business lunch as well as a Saturday night dinner. Very attractive, comfortable space with good service and good food.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day experienceI'm a frequent diner and I took my family to Standord Grill for Mother's Day. The service was excellent and the food was great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMClassy ResturantThe service was awesome, very classy establishment.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was excellent,The restaurant was excellent, the food scrumptious, the ambiance, divine, this was my first time visiting the Stafford Grill, I am recommending it to all my friends and associates5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeThe service was great and the food was outstanding! Try the Chicken!!!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMStanford Grill is the real dealIf you've ever wondered where you could go and wear a nice dress, Stanford Grill is the place. With the jazz band playing on certain nights and the fireplace going, you are sure to love your experience. In addition to that, there's the food..which is cooked to perfection, especially the crab cakes. The desserts are absolutely divine. We shared one dessert among 3 people! The waiters are generally very professional, although we went on Valentine's weekend the first time and had a long wait but other than that, they've been pretty good on time management. Oh yes, and the rotisserie chicken was seasoned like I had never tasted before..I mean eyes roll in your head seasoned. But I wouldn't recommend for those that have hypertension.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood deliciousAtmosphere, food and service was excellent! The three-piece-jazz band topped it off for my husband's birthday! I have recommended this restaurant to my family and friends.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMStanford Grill-Bucket List MUST!The customer service is outstanding. The hostess was immediately attentive and friendly. Our waiter, Mark, was awesome! We told him we were not in a hurry and wanted to enjoy the evening. He allowed us to enjoy our wine and appetizer before sending our dinner order to the kitchen. We lingered through dinner, and another bottle of wine, and he checked on us without being intrusive. The food was fresh, the service impeccable and the atmosphere energetic! I was a repeat customer to the restaurant and will continue to be so! I highly recommend Stanford Grill for a romantic dinner as well as a girl's night out. I cannot wait to get back there! Thank you, Thank you!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was a young ladyOur server was a young lady named Trah and she was exceptional. She knew all the intimate details of the menu items and went out of her way to serve our group. We had two special dining requests due to food allergies. She gave us service with a smile. The manager -- Phillip served our table twice due to special orders. He, too was excellent.
We will be back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place!!!I loved it. I had dinner with my Sister who loves the place and I can't wait to take my husband. The food was good and the service was absolutely top notch. Highly recommend!!!!!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great experience.Always a great experience. No one provides better service.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Stanford Grill restaurantThe Stanford Grill restaurant was a great find. Our server Christopher was very attentive and very knowledgeable regarding dining choices. The food was excellent. It had great flavor and temperature to accompany its appealing presentation.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable nightIt was our anniversary and having been there one other time, we thought we would enjoy it again. Obviously it's been discovered--and for good reason! Glad we had reservations. The service is excellent and the food is as tasteful as it is mouth watering.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time there! Nice atmosphere,First time there! Nice atmosphere, great food and menu and awesome staff!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceVery awesome. The service was great. Our waitress Stephenie gave my husband an awesome wine pairing for his steak. I usually hate wine, but the wine and steak were really good together. Steaks and prime rib absolutely to die for.
Only negatives were the slim craft beer selection; however, the wine selection seemed very extensive. The spinach came out too salty, but the staff had no problem replacing it.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh qualityThis was our second visit and will be back. The ambiance lets you know you're in for a quality evening. There's a two-man jazz group performing to add an undercurrent of class to the meal. The menu is not overly extensive but coupled with the nightly specials there's plenty to pick from. The portions are exceedingly generous, helping justify the pricing, and there's no embarrassment in needing plastic packaging for the leftovers. A good, solid wine list complements the well-prepared food. The service staff prides itself on a team approach but as the night wore on, visits to our table dwindled so settling the check took longer than necessary.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, good serviceBrought a group of 6 friends for dinner after a show and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and surroundings. Will definitely be back.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GoodFood is excellent and consistently good. Side dishes are prepared with the same skill as main dishes. Servers are attentive and knowledgeable.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA consistently wonderful experienceWe've dined at Stanford Grill many times and although it's always been very crowded, we've never had to wait for our reserved table. Service was impeccable without being intrusive and the team concept insures that our needs were always met in a timely manner. The only thing I would comment about is that they've changed their Caesar salad over the years and not for the better; the current one contains unusual ingredients along with a peppery dressing unlike any I've ever had on this type of salad. I prefer the original. Also be aware that soup is a bowl and not a cup and is rather filling. The prime rib melted in my mouth and I was glad I requested that it be finished on the grill which gave it an extra special flavor. We will return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA Surprising FindWe happened upon this gem by accident while staying in the hotel next door. I made a reservation for 8:45 but we were starving. Our waiter, Jeff, provided exceptional service exceeding our expectations. What I liked about the menu was the size; small enough to allow them to prepare food well but not too small to allow a good selection. My wife had crab cakes which she said were very good and I had their signature rotisserie chicken which I enjoyed. Sides included mashed potatoes and green beans that were well done. Portions are huge.
Dessert was free as guests of the neighboring hotel. The bread pudding that was so good that it brought tears to my eyes. I will certainly return if I am ever in the area.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Find with a Touch Of Class!Celebrated 5 year Anniversary at The Stanford Grill and as usaual it never disappoints. I was greeted with warm and welcoming smiles from the hostesses and was promptly seated well before my actual dinning seating (8PM). My waiter Mark was excellent! He was well versed and knowledgeable, siting the nightly specials from the menu, and making food and drink recommendations to help me decide the night's meal. My entree' selection was well presented and generous in portions! The night was capped off with the sounds of the jazz trio playing in the distance, accompanied with a very healthy portion of bread pudding which Mark comped from my bill as an annisersary gift. A touch of class!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and experienceThe food was extremely good. Server was attentive and helpful with menu questions. The atmosphere was impressive and fit for romance or an elegant dinner setting. The jazz band also helped with the great experience. We will be back!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood great service even betterEverytime I eat here I have great food and the staff is very friendly and professional. I have never had a problem with my food not coming out right.
A MUST GO SPOT!!!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMaking a reservation was aMaking a reservation was a snap and a good idea considering the full parking lot and folks waiting for a table. Loved the live jazz music - just right. And the food. We sampled each other's meals around the table and loved each dish. First time dining at Stanford Grill, but we'll be back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic ExperienceOnly place you can find Soft Shell Crabs along with a stellar glass of wine for this kind of price.

I would recommend Stanford Grill to anyone looking for a GREAT Evening out!!!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAbove Classic American RestaurantThe Stanford Grill is part of the Blue Ridge Restaurant Group that includes Copper Canyon Grill. It is quite apparent they focus on the Customer Service Experience as the staff is attentive, friendly, and energetic. The Stanford Grill and Copper Canyon work within a team environment so that someone is always at hand to help. The kitchen is accommodating and the food is always great. They have a great brunch menu on Sunday as well although you should note it is limited selections, with one complimentary beverage. (Nice!) At brunch and dinner, they have live music which creates a very nice ambiance. For me, the portions are large and if they could make them a bit smaller, I'd be able to comment on their desserts. So go hungry!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, local gem. FoodWonderful, local gem. Food is excellent - portions provide leftovers for several additional meals! Quiet, live jazz every night makes this a favorite go-to spot.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't overlook this oneGood food, great service, well managed restaurant. Make a reservation...it can get very busy.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden gem!Stanford Grill was excellent!! It was our first time dining there and it was our 7 year wedding anniversary. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu! Everything was in his head. He was extremely friendly. The food was great. The ambiance was perfect. The food portions were plentiful and my husband and I could have shared. We really enjoyed our anniversary and will definitely be back!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMYes, Fish Tacos. Fabulous Service!In my experience the team at Stanford Grille in Columbia get it right every time. On my recent visit, I was seated promptly, offered a beverage and made welcome while I awaited my lunch guests. While there were abundant lunch specials, I went for a menu item -- Fish Taco's and could not have been happier. Simple presentation, fish perfectly cooked, spicy and flavorful with great sides. The dish was filling, although not overwhelming. If you love coffee with your lunch order it here. French Press style with table-side service and desserts that truly overwhelm both in flavor and proportion.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPiano/Bass playing live backgroundPiano/Bass playing live background music was a great touch. Food was absolutely delicious. Multiple people in our party were served beer/wine after declining another would be my only "complaint". Though everything else was so great, I don't mind the extra drink.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMStanford Grille is alwaysStanford Grille is always an enjoyable place to eat. The menu items and the specials are excellent and it will be a favorite spot for years to come!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyed our experienceThoroughly enjoyed our experience and service was excellent. Desserts were crazy amazing! Would definitely return.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood day, I did not give aGood day, I did not give a rating on the noise because the selections did not fit my experience. My husband and I were seated in the last booth in front of the kitchen which made it very difficult to hear the band. Maybe Stanford should consider putting up a clear wall that would cut down on the noise.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy only complaint was thatMy only complaint was that we reserved a table on OpenTable but still had to wait 40 mins (was told it would be 10) to be seated. It was a much shorter wait than people who did not make ta reservation but the time exceeded what I thought was reasonable. However, the food and service were excellent- love the restaurant.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to the StanfordI have been to the Stanford Grill many times & the food is always spectacular. The wait staff is good. On my most recent visit I found the restaurant to be very noisy. Difficult 2 hear & b heard. I guess that's the consequence of a great restaurant.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingly DeliciousThe Stanford Grill is amazing! Everything is beyond delicious and the service is great!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA Neighborhood GemStanford Grill is a mainstay favorite for my family. We go to this gem of a restaurant to celebrate our birthdays, anniversaries, and sometimes just for lunch. My most recent stay was to give my visitor a send off before his departure back to Raleigh. I think that our meal together here was one of the highlights of his visit. He remarked on the ambience and fireplaces. The wait staff was very personable, I would name each of them by name if I could recall each of them. From the hostesses to the waiters we were very well attended to in every way. Our meals consisted of the crab cakes w/ a side of mash and broccoli, the rattlesnake pasta, and the bbq ribs, and skillet cornbread. The food was delivered hot, fast, and absolutely delicious!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWow, what an experience!This was our first time dining at Stanford Grill. It was my partners birthday, so I was looking for a restaurant close to work with a good reputation. Well Stanford Grill delivered a wonderful experience. The food was great, all courses were timed perfectly. The bar drinks took awhile, which was understandable because we notice as we walked in that the bar was crowded. And our server Kara was the best, she was on point with every aspect of our meal from the greet to the finish. We will definitely be back.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I went here forMy wife and I went here for our 3 year anniversary. All the food was amazing! We started with the best spinach artichoke dip we have ever had. For dinner my wife had the chicken pot pie and I had the wood-fired rotisserie chicken. All very excellent. My wife's only complaint was that both of our meals seemed to have a little bit too much pepper for her liking, but otherwise everything was great!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
