Slow-roasted and deeply seasoned. Accompanied by áu jus and horseradish sauce. Served with mashed potatoes
Key Lime Pie
The food was excellent and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Also my waitress Hannah was great
Very loud/noisy. They do not have any bread or rolls to go with dinner. The mash potatoes were compared to eating the salt shaker, I could not eat them. It was a bit pricey considering no bread or rolls and only 1 side with entree where other restaurants offer 2.
Lovely setting - food is good. Neighborhood gem in Columbia.
Great food, huge portions, and attentive service. We had the rattlesnake pasta, pot pie, and seared ahi salad. We ate in the side room adjacent to the outdoor tent. The windows were open and the firepit was lit. So, it was a little chilly, but I appreciated the extra airflow.
Where is my 100 points for open table?
I’ve always had a good meal here
We went here for a birthday celebration. The hostess was very accommodating. The food was really good with nice size portions.
My group enjoyed celebrating a birthday lunch at SG. The back patio was a nice space and Tera's service was very attentive. The meals were good but not exceptional (rotisserie chicken was dry) and mimosas were heavy OJ and little champagne. Improvements can be made.
Pot Pie and Ribs were fabulous...also top notch drinks. Pumpkin Cheesecake one of the best I have ever had.....
What a nice place to go on date night. Or for any special occasion for that matter. The food is excellent and the service is great. It's a terrific value.
Service was perfect. Food always great!
Service was impeccable. The food was great. and eating outside on a warm October evening was amazing.
Quality food and good service. Was incredibly loud and seating arrangements made it difficult to even hear across the table.
We were there for my friend’s birthday. Everything was great! Hannah was an excellent server. The food was delicious and we are planning to return.
Disappointed this time around. I had a business meeting and specifically requested a quiet table in a corner and I noted that it was a business dinner on Open Table.
When I got there, they seated us at a center table directly under a speaker and next to a very loud and festive birthday party.
I asked if we might be moved to a table on the outdoor patio since it was much quieter, and I was rebuked. Instead, they offered to turn down the music over our seats, but that did nothing to help reduce the noise from the big (10+ people) birthday party at the next table. I was rather put off, as there were other guests on the patio, so it wasn't like there wasn't a server available to handle it. Again, I had made very specific requests in my reservation that were not out of line or unusual and they were ignored. It made it extremely difficult to discuss business and the dinner took nearly 3 hours because we were constantly having to repeat ourselves and speaking unusually loud to overcome the noise.
They also neglected to bring tea cups when my guests ordered hot tea and didn't check back for 10 minutes, by which time the water was too cold to steep the tea bags.
While the service was lackluster at best, the food was excellent. Our braziano was incredible. The food arrived quickly, hot and well prepared. Seasoning was spot on and the portions were very very generous. We ordered the dessert special - pumpkin cheesecake and it was fabulous.
Bottom line, I would highly recommend the food, as it has never failed to impress, but the service was lackluster at best and refusing to move a guest whose reasonable request is unacceptable given that there were tables available as well as servers.
Great experience as always!
Outstanding food, great service. An absolute favorite for special occasions or visiting guests.
We had a lovely time as always. It's a great spot for a date night. Only a couple of things prevented me from giving it an excellent rating overall.
1. the menu choices are limited which is kinda disappointing.
2. I had the mashed potatoes with my salmon. They were good but probably a little too pepper-y.
Still a good spot to eat. My margarita was delicious and the pumpkin cheesecake was absolutely divine.
It was a great first time experience
Lovely spot to get together - delicious food, straightforward menu options, nothing "exotic" - prime rib, tenderloin, ribs, chicken and a fish special. Attentive service. I'll go back.
Great food and Eric was a great waiter!
The food was good but the service was horrible. It has gotten increasingly worse.
I needed to change my reservation from 3 people to 5 and they were great about accommodating.. Food and service as always did not disappoint,
Our second time at Stanford. This time we were on the patio. Little quieter! Loved our meals and service. It was my wife and my date night and actually an anniversary of our first date 49 years ago. Never tire of this lovely lady!
The service was excellent. Drinks and food were delicious.
This place has one of the best prime rib steaks in the area. Wife and I have been here twice and I ordered the same thing. The desserts are very very good. I love the key lime pie and the bead pudding is excellent.
We will be back again.
The staff were courteous and professional and the food was great. The restaurant is a bit dark so it was a little hard to find my party. Otherwise it was a great experience and will be going back.
The food and service was very good as usual.
They were out of a few items that was disappointing. Hopefully they can fix that situation. It isn't the first time.
great service, great food! key lime pie, ribs, loose cannon
Great time. Sat outdoors right next to the fireplace.
This is the nicest restaurant in Columbia. The service is a pleasant balance of getting the attention you need with not being constantly bothered (very friendly). The food is first class and they have a great choice of wines.
Good food good environment great place to meet
We were three friends reconnecting after many many years. Our server was fantastic, the food quite yummy and it was a perfect get together... Thanks very much for a memorable experience. And the time to reconnect.
Unfortunately, the restaurant's computer system malfunctioned and the credit card processing system stopped working. It was slightly inconvenient, but the server, Matt, took it all in stride and kept his cool.
We had an outstanding time, the food and drinks were great, and the staff were very friendly and helpful!! Stanford Grill will be an annual go-to location for our get-togethers!
Stanford Grill is one of my husband and my favorite restaurants and we love going there on “date night”. The food is consistently perfectly prepared and the service is excellent. We started with a glass of Pinot noir and moscato and a fresh, crisp Cesar salad with delicious dressing. We each selected the 10 ounce prime rib which was plenty to eat even though they offer a larger one. The fries are the crispy shoestring variety that is so fun to eat - we could make a meal on those alone. Eric, our server, was wonderful. We’ve been lucky to have him on previous visits and he recognized us immediately. He is very professional and friendly at the same time - a definite asset to the Blue Ridge Restaurant Group. We’ll definitely ask for Eric on our next visit.
Great. Food is always excellent, service is unbeatable. They are always attentive.
Always great food and great service.
Another great dinner. We’re never disappointed.
Can’t say enough about how great they are at Stanford Grill. Food. Service. All outstanding. I do wish they would bing back the live jazz, though. ;)
