I usually think of stanfords when I want to dine out. I take my dad here often so he can eat good food, and people watch. My cousins from Colorado enjoyed their meal at Stanfords’s too. The surroundings seem clean and well kept unlike other older restaurants. We’ll be going tomorrow!

We were seated quickly and our server approach the table for a drink orders. We opted for a water only with lemon and that was quickly brought back to the table. We then placed our order. We were going to share three items and ask that they all come out together. The ahi salad, the calamari and the Portabella mushrooms came out. Everything was fine except for the calamari. It was very over done and rubbery. That was quickly remedied by our server brought us a new serving of calamari and it was night and day for the taste and texture. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience and can’t wait to return!

I took my mother here for her belated Mother's Day lunch. It was so nice to go out for lunch where you don't have to strain to hear or talk. Everything on the menu looks delicious and easy to understand. It's a great menu when you are looking for a reasonably priced menu. Great portions and flavor. My mom loves the baby back ribs and specifically asked to come for the ribs. I think the portions are great. Our server was nice and courteous. I would highly recommend.

This was a birthday celebration for my nephew. He wanted steak. The steaks were all very good (5 different orders of various degrees of doneness.) My only real complaint about the food was the Cesar salad -- lettuce was limp and dressing was a bit too tart for my taste. Ordered an Old Fashioned before dinner, and it too was a bit dull. Overall a good place for a family dinner.
