Awesome! We loved it and the food was spectacular!
Love this place! The live music is just icing on the cake!
Excellent dinner in a great location!
Food is consistently excellent as is service. Noisy but that’s part of the atmosphere.

Great food, much centers around their rotisserie chicken, which is fantastic. Service was very good. Most seating is booth , which we liked.
It was pretty loud, but the place was packed and they had some live jazz going on.
Another excellent night at Stanford Grill
Stanford Grill is our favorite restaurant in Columbia/Ellicott City. The food is quite good and reasonably price.i love their bacon Mac and cheese. Love the roasted chicken, better than “finger lickin good!”
We dine at Stanford Grill often. We celebrated my birthday on April 6. Everything was exceptional as
always. I had the crab cakes and coconut shrimp. My son had the lamb shank and my husband had the prime rib. All meals were EXCELLENT! Will return soon!
The steak was made to my liking of medium rare and was juicy, fresh, enough fat. The bacon Mac and cheese was delicious but was just a tiny bit salty. My husband loved the rotisserie chicken and was seasoned well, but pull back on saltiness a little. The mashed potatoes was rich and creamy but had a bit too much of black pepper and less salt could be used. Overall our food was seasoned well and delicious but please take some salt off just a tad. The waitress was friendly and professionally engaging. We will surely visit again! Thank you.
Glad we ate outside. It was very noisy inside the main restaurant. But the outdoor seating could have been nicer. The tables are a basic metal patio set. Food was excellent since it was made with fresh ingredients. We'll definitely be going back!
My food (rotisserie chicken) and vegetables were extremely salty. After the meal (all night) my throat was feeling the effects of too much salt. I know restaurants always put a lot of salt on the food (at home I do the opposite), but I think the chicken, potatoes, and spinach was had too much salt. Also, the noise level was too loud--at 6:30 p.m. on a Saturday night.
I ordered the Rotisserie Chicken. This is my go to menu item and for the last 3 visits, it had a good taste but it is heavy on sodium. A friend ordered the same and agreed. My husband ordered the chicken pot pie and it was not to his liking. Another friend ordered the ribs and she enjoyed them. The server graciously removed the pot pie from our bill. The atmosphere is lively and loud. My wine choice was good with dinner and service was excellent.
The restaurant was beautiful but the food was completely over cooked. The manager did remove one of the two very over cooked steaks from our bill. But I don’t think I will be returning.
Noise level is to high. Could not have a conversation with my friend without repeating due to noise level
Our third time here - worst one! It was VERY noisy. The service was spotty and uninspired. There was little steak in the steak salad. And whoever heard of a restaurant that doesn't know what béarnaise sauce is when they have prime rib and steak on the menu?
Service was excellent! Everyone’s dinner was delicious! Our server was very attentive & pleasant.
Great decor, ambiance, food - on the noisy side. Will go back just the same.
Our server was very attentive and impressive. Great service and delicious meals. A very pleasurable dining experience.
Every bit of my experience at Stanford Grill was Top Notch from the greeting at the door to the server and his knowledge of the menu as well as his service. And the food.... I was impressed.
Outstanding! Seated promptly upon arrival. Food came as ordered. Service was consistent and friendly. Manager made sure to visit table. We will be back!!
Fantastic experience. The fried oysters were massive and very good.. the sauce on top was amazing. The Prime Rib was cooked to perfection and my husband's Cod had a nice flavor to it. Our server Erik was amazing and had many great suggestions with wine and food. He was very knowledgable about the menu and made sure we had a great time, thank you Stanford Grill!
Excellent all the way around. We celebrated my son’s 16th birthday. He had such a great time. Thank you!
The Stanford Grill-Columbia is a consistently goo restaurant. The menu has something for everyone, the food is prepared and presented nicely, and the service is almost too good! They offer off menu specials but the several items that I have enjoyed from the menu have been very good. This is definitely a local hotspot and is tucked away in a fairly discreet location but it is worth looking for!
Good meal. Great service from Watson.
Excellent service - a very fun restaurant in which to dine as the staff does their utmost to make sure you are well taken care of. The Boston Clam Chowder was flavorful and sizeable, though could have used more clams. The salmon entrée is always a winner, with the accompanying Brussel sprouts perfectly prepared, still a bit crispy, with an accompanying mustard sauce that elevated them beyond mere side vegetable.
Good wine selection and great drinks: Uptown Old Fashioned is my go-to drink as it never disappoints. Desserts are HUGE, representing an excellent value; however, on this occasion, I opted for the soup instead of dessert to may my doctor happy. It's hard, but if one can save room, the Key Lime Pie is an excellent selection.
My only complaint: bring back the salmon appetizer! This should never have been taken off the menu the first time and should never be taken off the menu ever again once it's placed back on.
Dining at The Stanford Grill is always an excellent experience, including the wonderful smell of the cooking that wafts over the parking lot.
Food was very good, service was good. We enjoyed the live piano/bass music as well. However, we had six adults and one baby in highchair. We made reservations but were put in a booth with the baby at the end of the table in a high traffic area - not really a safe situation. In addtion, they do not have a changing table in either of the bathrooms. Based on these two issues, I would have to say that they are NOT kid-friendly.
Stanford Grill is one of our favorite options for dinner. The food is high quality with generous portions and the service is great. Even the side salad is quite a treat. Our favorite is the potpie. It comes out in a small skillet and is so flavorful with the handmade crust and rotisserie chicken. We also love their Woodfire Club card!
I love Stanford Grille. We go there often after church for brunch.
My wife, daughter, son-in-law, grandson and i had dinner at Stanford Grill and everything way perfect as usual. The food was great and the service was impeccable. Joining the Woodfire Club is an extra bonus of this incredible restaurant. The live jazz music is the topping on the cake. The Brinkley family are customers for life.
Just a superb restaurant in Columbia. Food always delic and service usually above average as well. Unfortunately, I couldn't give service 5 stars this visit. It took forever to get cocktails.
Great food and service!
Great food and service as always. Nice jazz trio but a bit noisy and hard to hold a conversation.
IT'S OUR GO TO PLACE TO BEING GUESTS. ALWAYS A GOOD MEAL WITH GOOD SERVICE AND THE BAR KNOWS HOW TO MAKE GREAT BEVERAGES.
It felt like an off night at what has been a favorite place. The service was slow and uneven. Soup for two in our party arrived at least 7-10 minutes before the other 3 diners salads. The wine came after that. The noise level is always challenging to easy conversation. It will be awhile before I go back. There are lots of choices in this area and time to. Branch out.
Food was good but service was beyond excellent. It’s a bit too noisy with both music and people speaking over the music. Will go again but would like noise level reduced.
I am becoming a regular - and that makes me happy. I love everything we have tried - but now I have had the steak salad twice - total yum!!! The servers are always very attentive. Yes - it is always busy - so I recommend a reservation.
Our server Eric K. was terrific and the Stanford Grill in Columbia should be very pleased to have such a fine young man working for them. He was very attentive and was available every time we needed him. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and everything went perfectly. Can not say enough great things about the Stanford grill and our waiter. We have been going to this restaurant for a few years and have never been disappointed.
