Party of 6. All 3 of The baked potatoes were STONE COLD. Not room temp, refer temp. One was partially frozen. All 3 of the replacements were also STONE COLD. Waiter gave up, said he’d take them off the bill.
So my $30 dinner (minus $4 for no potato) consisted of a nice slice of prime rib and 5 onion rings. Had to fix something to eat when we got home.

The service was great.
We both ordered meals with fries. We were disappointed that Stanford's has changed the format of their fries. The smaller shoe-string type were much better than the new crinkle-cut that have a drive-in feel.
I know - petty right? (-:

Usually a great experience, food a little disappointing after trying a few newer items on smaller menu. Feel like more options needed. Understaffed I think, waiter was great though just had too many tables. Too many seated in one section, wished we had sat in the bar.

We eat here often usually for lunch and it is always good. BUT we went for our 20 year anniversary on Christmas Eve. Ordered their prime rib. It was so chewy and couldn't cut it. My wife tried 3 times and me twice. It was bad. $135 for 2 people. On way out a woman sent hers back after one bite and said "forget it". The staff was excellent and friendly. Think it was a cheap cut of meat.

Steak over cooked, lobster tail was butchered, eyelash in potatoes, vegetables were not seasoned and over cooked, whiskey peppercorn sauce sat so long it had a congealed layer. Server was great, overall, not worth the $250 we paid for an anniversary dinner. Could’ve gotten the same or better meal at Applebees or TGIFridays.

Ribeye was similar quality to a Ponderosa steak- cut too thin with plenty of gristle and fat. Way overpriced for the end product delivered. Sides and tuna poke appetizer were very good as was the service.
