Key Lime Pie
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.
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. ;)
The food is consistently excellent. We had a party of six for family visiting. All entrees were delicious: ribs, prime rib, salmon, and a plant-based cheeseburger.
The only drawback is we were seated outside in a covered area and it had a different feel then indoors. I had made an open door reservation two days earlier and wasn’t sure why we were placed outdoors. I wanted this restaurant for the indoor fire place and beautiful decor.
Other than this one thing with seating, I enjoy the friendliness of the staff, the excellent food, and menu selection.
Update: thank you to the Stanford Grill for emailing me about options regarding seating & letting me know that I can ask to be reseated. I appreciate the great customer service.
The food portion size was huge. It is four meals for me. Lot's of left overs which is a good thing.
I did not remember it ever being as noisy. Puzzles me since it was not a full restaurant. It was very difficult to converse and hear what the other said.
I always have a pleasurable experience here.
Everything was great as usual
We used to visit this restaurant all the time pre-pandemic. Unfortunately, it seems to be struggling now, as our experience wasn’t anywhere close to as delightful as we remembered. My husband ordered one of the specials, which he said just wasn’t very good, and I ordered a salad, which had bits of avocado skin in it. Not sure how staff is preparing their avocados, but that’s not a typical problem to have…
After I picked out my fourth piece of avocado skin from my mouth and put it on the side of my plate, I told our server, who profusely apologized and took the salad away. Our server was lovely. I had lost my appetite at that point, and declined her offer to make a new salad.
I was, however, totally shocked when the manager only took off $5 for the charge of the salad, and still charged us the remainder!
Sad to lose another great restaurant from our list, but we likely won’t be returning.
Overall good restaurant, great service, and amazing food. There only complaint I have is that the restaurant is too dark.
The noise from traffic on Rt. 175 was deafening at times.
Average food made better by Hannah, who was an exceptional server!
Hannah treated us well, with great suggestions( we tried the shrimp and grits) which were EXCELLENT!
She took good care of us and made our night extra special!
Tomas stopped by to check on us which was a nice touch.
Staff works really well together and it really shows!
Thanks for a fun night.great meal/fabulous dining experience!
Excellent service and food as always.
Delicious food, nice covered outside dining although the road noise is a bit load. Great service!
