My friend & I went to lunch and enjoyed the fried chicken on a salad with a substitute dressing. Since we didn't want the spicy dressing offered with the salad, our waitress graciously advised us there were other options. When it came to dessert, we decided to have an Irish coffee & a Spanish coffee. Again, the waitress said she would verify that the bartender had the ingredients. Our waitress was always nearby but not overbearing. She is a treu professional.

Our server was very nice and knowledgeable. The food was not great at all, especially considering the cost. I expected a lot better. The wine was wonderful though! We also have heard their desserts were amazing, but the options were limited thanks so covid and a smaller menu.

Absolutely a pleasure everytime we dine here. Eric was awesome and an absolute mind reader. I couldn't ask for better service or better food (We both had the Filet). In a time where service can be hindered by the covid-19 precautions, they've done an amazing job without skipping a beat to ensure you feel safe without losing its atmosphere. We've done our best to stay home and stay safe but if you must go out this is a great place to be!!!

Even though the menu says the prime rib comes with mashed potatoes and green beans my husband didn’t get green beans they said no longer serve it with green beans, it was delicious anyway, no jazz ensemble because of the Covid and that’s understandable.

Food was great as usual. Service was very slow and indifferent. Dined at 515 with few tables in the restaurant. Waiter was more interested in chatting with other employees and walking into the kitchen.

I always recommend Stanford to all my friends. We celebrate our birth a days and other occasions at Stanford. Because of COVID we haven’t been able to celebrate. We took this first opportunity to celebrate brats my grandson’s graduation.

The pork barbecue sandwich was excellent (as were the accompanying cole slaw and French fries), though it is not a regular menu item. Dined on the outside terrace, so kudos to my server Harry for making the treks to and from the outside venue. The Key Lime Pie was, always, delicious and huge! An excellent value for a dessert which nets an after-dinner treat for three nights running as I took the slice of pie to go. I saw staff sanitizing tables where others had recently dined for lunch - good to know that Stanford Grill is as diligent in translating its customary excellent level of service to keeping things clean. The Stanford Grill offers an excellent outdoor dining option for those, like me, who choose this option. An excellent dining option.

We enjoyed a truly wonderful dining experience at the Stanford Grill on Wednesday evening July 15th. The food was incredible and the service was excellent. The only disappointment was that we had visited that evening to take advantage of the advertised pulled pork sandwich special, but they had run out of that item. Otherwise a fantastic evening.

We have lived in Maryland for 10 years and The Stanford Grill is our go-to place for special occasions. We are moving away so we decided to have our final dinner there. Even with the contracted menu it did not disappoint. The food was timely and prepared to our specifications. The server was attentive but not annoying. The only thing that detracted was a drunk patron who was more than six feet away who had no concept of volume. The more he drank, the louder and more slurred his speech became. He could not hear each other at the same table when he was talking. This is not the fault of the Stanford Grill, just a person unaware that other people were there.

The food, service and atmosphere are consistently amazing. But more importantly, this restaurant has gone over and beyond to ensure the social distancing of customers and the safety of their staff during this season. I will definitely go back! They also have an wonderful intimate outdoor patio.

This was our first dining out experience in 4 months due to the Covid restrictions. We were so pleased=the outdoor patio atmosphere was amazing and felt safe with the tables placed quite a distance apart. The servers were gloved and masked, adding to our feeling of comfort.

Stanford Grill did a great job! The food was amazing-especially the chicken pot pie.

Perfect atmosphere and great food! Who could ask for more?

1st time out due to COVID. Was a great experience. Only concern was the lack enforcement for masks in/out. Ex: Family of 4, woman about 6-8 mos pregnant. No one wore a mask. Woman used kids blanket/Gent pulled shirt up to cover face. Other than that everything was great as expected.
