We had a 6:30 reservation. Due to a change of plans we arrived at 5:45 and made ourselves known to the hostess. We were told that our table wasn't ready, which was understandable, and proceeded to wait in the bar, again making that known to the hostess. At 6:35 our cocktail server asked the hostess about our table availability and returned with the answer that we would be seated shortly. We were finally seated at 6:45. During this one hour period we obverved numerous patrons being seated ahead of us. We found this experience to be totally unexceptable and highly doubt that we will return.

The food was amazing. Drinks came out a little slow granted we got there right as they opened on a Sunday morning. Other than drinks coming slightly slow all other service was great, Kate was a great host and even got us info on how some of our favorite dishes was made when we asked. Overall great experience.

Food was not the quality I expected for the price. There were a few loud people making it difficult to have a conversation at our own table. It will be a while before going back.

We were very happy with the service and the food. The portions were very decent to our surprise.
They definitely should invest in their floors. The floors, dark clearly old and unclean carpets takes away a lot from the ambience. The tables by the glass were we sat, very close together and difficult to go in and out even though I am a very slim person, something that we felt could be improve as well. Besides that our experience was nice.

Our meals were good, but the first order of short ribs I received was unacceptably dry. The service was tremendous and they were quick to replace it with another that was perfectly prepared. That said, I would have preferred it to have a bit less of the reduction and a bit lighter handed with the salt. My husband didn't think the NY strip was anything special, but it was prepared to a proper temperature. Our salad and cobbler were both tasty. We will definitely return to try other items on the menu.

Our server, Kate, was very attentive. But service was slow. Our food was mediocre. The lamb could not be cut even with a steak knife. The restaurant did not charge us for that and bought our dessert. Nonetheless, it was a “meh” experience.

Went for a a anniversary dinner and was very pleased. Table was ready at time of reservation and view of the Sound was amazing. Food came in a sensible proper order, not bringing out all courses at once. Every course from appetizers, to main meal, and dessert were delicious. The Lemon Drops as a night cap were some of the best I've ever had. Will for sure be returning to Stanley & Seaforts, hopefully soon.

Our server was top notch and she put up with our indecision and lingering ;o) My husband and I are fans and wanted to share this place with some family members. Unfortunately we were seated at a 4 top table in the middle and ended up getting ran into more than once by servers frantically taking care of their tables. We will be requesting a booth from now on. Other than that this place is always one of my first thoughts when asked where to go for some great food.

Started at the bar since we were early for our reservation. Took the bar tender a while to acknowledge us and there was maybe 4 other people there 2 tables. Drinks were good though.

Food was really good. Only thing I didn’t enjoy was the lobster bisque it was too creamy for me. I’m used to eating lobster bisque that had a lot more red color. It seemed more orange because too much cream was added. Crab was fantastic and the crab artichoke dip was also good.

Our main waitress was very friendly and courteous. However, we didn’t get any waters until our dinner showed up and we had multiple appetizers and soup before our dinner came must’ve been at least 40 minutes before our dinner came. She was also very slow, there was a moment there where we thought she had left her shift for the day and someone else was taking over that’s how long we didn’t see her.

Overall I’d rate it a 3.

We had a lovely afternoon celebrating our anniversary. All of our selections were just as delicious as we had hoped for. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive without being too attentive, they were very busy and even the managers were hopping but we never felt any neglect. The key lime pie is the best I have had, I usually scrape the meringue off and eat the custard only but this was more like meringue meets whipped cream!

Outstanding as usual. Great food. Daughters birthday - steak was overdone but they made it right and deducted the meal from the check. Always consistent. Only recommendation would be to maybe offer other standard vegetables instead of the Brussel Sprouts - which are good but you know.

I took my son to Stanley and Seafort's for his birthday. Had not been here before. He is a very picky eater but really liked the food. I did too! Taste, colors, creative combinations and textures-- all very good and served at just the right temperature. Lovely view and very friendly and helpful server who answered all our questions and made sure we had everything we needed. We were both surprised that he was offered his choice of desert and was greeted with a birthday card upon being seated. Such a nice and special birthday dinner!

It was a good restaurant, but the side dishes were a little underwhelming for the price. The steak was very well cooked though and that was the most important part! They were so nice to us for our anniversary too with free dessert! Really appreciated the little card they gave us. Overall it’s a good restaurant but for the quality of the food (or at least the dish I got) a bit overpriced.

As always, the food was fabulous. I don't believe anyone can beat either their crab and artichoke appetizer or their key lime pie, although our guests raved about the chocolate indulgence cake. Stanley and Seafort's has been our go-to spot for any celebration, and the military discount is certainly appreciated.
