Cuban sandwich on the daily special sheet was flavorful and packed with pork.

Unfriendly, inadequate service.Very loud, no ambience, steaks were tough and overcooked. My daughter ordered the grilled salmon dinner and was served a 3 oz piece of salmon with a side of rice. The Stanford’s at Jantzen Beach is much better!

From entering to leaving there was good value for the money. Our server, Nathan, brought me the answer to a question I had asked about the delicious sauce on the fish.

The waiter was so accommodating, the fish tacos had fish grilled instead of battered & fried and sauce made it dairy free!! Win win!

15 or 20 years ago we thought Stanfords was a little special. We haven't been there for a long time so we thought we would try it again. Times have changed, or we have. Disappoiniting. The portions were small, preparation was ordinary, the true value was well below the menu price.

We had a great New Year's Eve dinner. We were seated at the time of our reservation, service was great, as was the food. Guests were "cheerful", since it was New Year's Eve!

Rude Hostess. We had reservations (obviously on Open Table). She made us wait and took other parties without reservations before us. I also had to tell her to be sure to confirm my Open Table reservation. No personality.

For $32, i expected a better meal. Rib eye very thin, less than ½” thick. Sides boring, no flavor, needed extra butter to try to improve.. Clearly not prepared for Christmas Eve. Very disappointed.

It was Christmas Eve. They were crazy busy with a limited menu. It took 45 minutes to get our food and my fish must have sat under a heat lamp for 30 of that 45. It’s just not a good night to go out to dinner. Our waiter was really nice.

Hi. I had a salad and soup which were just fine but the menu seemed pretty sparse. I can’t imagine a child eating a whole steak with all the trimmings, and besides soup and salad, the choices were rather narrow.

Beautiful atmosphere. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. Salmon chowder and fajitas very good. I got chicken Dijon. Just average and the mashed potatoes were just like warm, if that. The waitress offered to get me fresh ones, but I said no. Should t come out of the kitchen that way in the first place.everything else was fine. I will go back and try the happy hour.

Stanford's is my FAVORITE go to place - whether with family and/or friends - or even alone in the bar.
Jessica, a seasoned server we have had many times - including twice in less than two weeks - is always awesome. She did a GREAT job for the 6 of us.

Looking forward to returning very soon - 5 star rating on everything

It’s our third Thanksgiving dinner! The food was good and large portions. Our server was really good. Our ore dinner drink order was messed up, not sure where the fail was but corrected quickly. Things happen. Only complaint was it was so hot temp wise. Our experience last year was bad, but this year was very good!!!!

This is the second time we had Thanksgiving dinner at Stanford's. Last year was excellent. This year was terrible. The gr. beans were crunchy from under-cooking. The turkey was cold. The stuffing was mushy and the potatoes had disgusting, large lumps. We had 2 children and 5 adults. The 3 yr old that had chicken strips and fries was the only one that enjoyed their meal. Too bad. It's in a great location. Tab before tip was $200. Not worth it.

Always a good consistent dining experience. We're not going to Stanford's as much as we would like because the cost for a couple of meals along with wine has gotten too expensive.

We were very pleased with everything with Standford's as the waitress was Great checking on us thru out our time asking if all was good and asking if we needed anything. This made us feel great as we had our daughter there for her 48th birthday. Very good evening and the food was very good and we will be back soon. Everything GREAT. Keep up the great work. Thank you.
