Diner Reviews
  • "Our wayiress Kristy ( or Christine? ) was amazing. She paid attention for details, and very friendly and kind and very personable. We loved her. The view was beautiful and the food was very good."

  • "We haven't been to Stanley & Seafort's for a couple of years and feel that the food wasn't as well prepared as it has been in past visits. It was still a good meal but it just didn't suit our pallets this trip. The service was fantastic and that alone is why we will go back."

  • "Took the wife out for a lovely anniversary dinner. The service was great and the food was outstanding. In fact it was our fourth time joinithem for drinks and dinner and we can't wait to come back. See you soon!"

  • "The wait person was fine, but our food took a long time to arrive. We were a group of four, myself, my 2 daughters and my elderly mother.(Can't the servers tell when a group is not in the mood to linger?) The drinks came quickly but the food took way too long. My (lukewarm) lobster bisque arrived at the same time as the entrees. My daughter ordered the herb roasted chicken and found it way too greasy."

  • "I brought my friends for a special 'thank you' dinner. One prime rib piece was chewy and dry. The surf and turf was over cooked as were the vegetables that went with it. The deserts were divine. The waiter was good, until we had our meal. Then he was nowhere to be seen. Another staff member asked how our food was, but by then one friend had shared her food with another, so there was no need to replace the bad prime rib. They did remove it from the bill. Overall, I've had better service and food at Stanley and Seafort's in the past."

  • "We both had the Surf &Turf (Filet Mignon &Lobster Tail). We also ordered the Maytag Blue Cheese salad w slivered almonds. The salad was wonderful, but miss the tossed salad sandegg mustard dressing. I had initially ordered the filet cooked medium rare, but it seemed the waitress tried to talk me into having it cooked "medium " instead of medium rare. Wish I hadn't listened. Although very good, overdone for my taste buds. I should have spoken up, but because I was with a "first date, I didn't . The small lobster tail was outstanding with the drawn butter. We also shared the signature "burnt cream" DELICIOUS...and my date had the chocolate mousse which he also enjoyed. A wonderful (although very expensive) dinner. (150.00 ) plus."

  • "I had asked for a window table and specified that it was my husbands birthday when I made the online reservation. We did get a window table and on top of it a birthday card and free Creme Brûlée ! The wait was minimal, the service superb and the view spectacular. Our only hiccup was with the Prime Rib my husband ordered was a little overdone. He has ordered it before, the same way with different results. Otherwise everything was wonderful!"

  • "This was the perfect choice for a 50th Birthday celebration! The Staff was so very accommodating. This was a surprise birthday dinner with a few other guests who had been delayed in traffic. The Hostess, stalled for me and got us a wonderful window view table. Then when we sat down, made it as though it was just the 3 of us. When the others arrived, they pampered us and met our every need! Wonderful experiece"

  • "Our waitress made this dining experience for mother who had never been there feel like the queen she is. I could not have ask for a better time for mom. Thank you to a very sweet young lady."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Recently took my girlfriend there because a friend recommended it. The food was exceptional, the view was fantastic, the service was a little slow. Hostess set us up with a fantastic table, the bartender was very friendly and knowledgable. Only negative was that we spent a little too much time wondering where our waitress was. Not a biggie, but when my lady who was a server formerly starts commenting about things it usually has been too long. Looking at Yelp this tends to be a trend."

  • "A great lunch for the two of us on Father's Day. Crab sandwich was wonderful and we enjoyed our Father's Day meal. The manager was exceptionally helpful on our RUI card problems and personally greeted me as we left."

  • "View was fantastic. Good was delicious plus expensive haha. Service was pretty good waiter kept checking on us and kept recommending things to us.. a little strange but she was nice. Overall me and my fiance loved it even if we couldn't get a picture because of the good ambient lighting."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Our special occasion was great from beginning to end. We were seated immediately upon arrival in a prime window seat. We were immediately told Happy Anniversary by the hostess. Our waitress was prompt at coming over and asking what we were celebrating. The manager brought us over a crab artichoke dip and said Happy Anniversary. My husband had the lobster and steamed clams. I had prime rib and Caesar salad. All were cooked to perfection. We ended with the burnt creme which was heavenly."

  • "Exuberant and helpful wait staff, amazing evening views, and delicious food. What more could you ask for?"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "This was an anniversary celebration. The prime rib was good. Mashed potatoes were a little dry. Would have preferred baked potato. Choc.lava cake was excellent. Brie appetizer was very good. Server very attentive. S&S need to upgrade actual tables or cover with a tablecloth. Extremely worn out tables. The view is very nice. We had a real nice time."

  • "Salmon/crab salad was excellent with a dinner sized portion of salmon in addition to crab and salad. Burger was a little salty but fries were outstanding. Service was excellent and we felt very welcome and warmly greeted by all staff we met."

  • "Our waiter, Michael, was excellent. He was very attentive to our needs as the evening progressed. The food was excellent and the pear bread pudding was out of this world!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The food was disappointing, the tiniest prawns I have ever seen, empty mussel shells, a steak that was extremely tough. Although the servers tried hard to make it an enjoyable time the quality of the food really ruined the night. The view of Tacoma and Commencement Bay is unequalled. Adjustment to the bill helped - but I will not be returning."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Fantastic restaurant for just about any occasion, but really great for that special night out. The staff was friendly, the food was great, and the atmosphere enjoyable. The only real downside of the evening was our waiter forgot the appetizer we ordered, and we had our dinner before we realized that. At least he didn't put it on the bill."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Great view, excellent food, good wine list....adds up to a wonderful evening!! Prime rib was incredibly tender, clam chowder the best I've ever had! Seafood Louis combines salmon, crab & shrimp...outstanding! Enjoy!"
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "This has been a family-celebration restaurant for our family for at least 20 years. We always looked forward to an excellent restaurant experience with this choice. Our recent experience was a disappointment on several counts--the service was slower and our meal choices were very lackluster for 4 out of 5 of us. The prime rib dinner continues to be a excellent choice if you find yourself in this restaurant. Do not order the rack of wild boar, and they should be fined for not preparing copper river salmon properly. Hope you have better luck"

  • "I didn't get the view I had asked for when making my reservation. Made for an expensive, yet less-than-special birthday dinner for my wife and her best friend."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "On arriving we learned that two of our party of five would have to leave in 35 minutes. We informed out server of the abbreviated schedule and she got us into some menu items that could be presented quickly. The were on time and very good. It was a successful high school graduation celebration thanks to Stanley and Seafort's and our server. "

  • "The food was really great, well prepared and came out in a decent manner. Food was filling and gave nice size portions. The drinks was deliciously made correctly and very good as well."

  • "We arrived on time had to wait over an hour for a table. During this time only Terry from the dinning room approached us with any service. We were sitting Bove the bar an not one wait person asked if we wanted a drink. Thank you. Terry. He is a great waiter. He was not our waiter on Friday yet he stepped up. "

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary. Stanleys' came to mind and I thought, I've been driving by this place on the freeway for 35 years and always wanted to go there. We were not disappointed. I made reservations online and it seemed easy. Upon entering, the ladies at the check in made us feel welcome and communicated that our special table was becoming available. Our server and new friend was Kristy. She is an awesome person and seemed to anticipate our every need. She was very observant and recommended several perfect menu choices. We were so full at the end but Kristy insisted on buying us dessert and it was wonderful. The whole experience was perfect. I would recommend Stanleys without hesitation."

  • "It was my first time coming here & I absolutely loved it! Everything from the view, the staff, & most importantly the FOOD!

We're already planning to come back again! "
