Best fish and chips ever. Hot crispy crunchy outside and soft, most and flaky fish inside. Just the right seasoning. Perfect.

Yes. I would recommend Stanfords, I thought it was great fun to sit outside and the weather cooperated. The staff were very nice and fun....

I thought the medium steak looked very well done. Other than that it was all great.

Very good place to eat. They are reliable and consistent in their food quality and the service is good. Unlike many restaurants these days, this one is relatively quiet; even when the crowds are large.

As always, Stanford's does not disappoint. Our server was wonderful and is always pleasant. Our food was very good - Southwest chicken salad and fajitas, and the patio seating on a nice summer day completes the picture.

Always happy with this restaurant. My husband ordered the grilled salmon and said it was one of the best preparation he’d ever ordered. And, he’s picky about his fish entrees.

Food was good but too salty. My wife had the halibut and chips, fish was good but batter was really salty. My filet was nicely prepared but the mashed potatoes and green beans were over salted.

I must learn to control myself when ordering. My eyes are bigger than my stomach. Portions are large. Even though I end up taking some home, I should probably order smaller dishes.

Food is just mediocre. The waiter may have been new. He knocked over a full glass of water. The banana cream pie was not especially flavorful. Couldn’t find any bananas.

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.

Thank you for choosing us to celebrate your nephews birthday! I am so happy that you all enjoyed your steaks, and hope that they were cooked to perfection! Our apologies about the Caesar salad and the old fashioned. If there is anything we can do to make either of them better please let us know! Thank you. Robert Gamboa, GM

The food and service were really great. The only strange thing at a restaurant in this price range is that the server did not seem to know how to pour wine correctly.
