The food was amazing and the service was good. I usually frequent steakhouses in the Reno area and Stanley is maybe not as fancy, but the food is just as good or better than some steakhouses in Reno. The waitress was very nice. Stanley was a nice place to dine and have wonderful food.

Blackened salmon was the best ever; molasses bread and the rest of the meal was great, too.
Service was even better. We really enjoyed the entire experience.

We dined in at this restaurant so many times and never earned wrong points.
I'm Gregory White & I made a reservation at Stanley's Steakhouse w/booked 1,000 pts on Sunday 10/7/18 at 5:30pm but I noticed that I only earned 100 pts on my profile. Please make a correction on it? Appreciated!

After numerous years of patronage, thankfully the food has maintained its quality, however service has failed. Busser's are gone; servers are handling far too many tables and service has gone from dinner house to coffee shop. Sad to see decisions being made out of concern for overhead costs while ignoring the need for dinner house expectations. Sorry Stanley, but you have failed. Doubt we will be back.

Stanley's steakhouse is really a great place to eat. It is easily the best place in the Jackson, the county seat. Located inside a gold rush era hotel, on picturesque Main St., this place has something for everyone. The bar is fantastic and the friendly service can not be beat! But the reason you go out to a restaurant is to eat, right? The menu here reflects the creativity of the chef, and offers some unique dishes not found elsewhere. The value is definitely worth giving this place a try.

Service was very friendly and moderately fast. It was really busy causing staff to hustle. Couple things were overlooked because of it like bread dishes and bread but brought when we asked. Food was very good. Took a chance on the Brussels sprouts appetizer - fantastic! Mains were plated with care and creativity. The Wellington was cooked to perfection. NOTE: bring a sweater, just in case your in the vicinity of one of the over-efficient A/C's.

It is a neat location and I give the friendly staff an A for effort but, by their own admission, they were understaffed on a busy night. It took too long to order and too long to get our food. From a food standpoint, my husband ordered the lamb and it was excellent. I had a wedge salad (very good) and the ribeye. The steak itself was a good cut of meat and well seasoned but I ordered medium rare and got medium to medium well. It still tasted good, so I ate it. We would go back. If it's a weekend, just don't be in a hurry....

The food was excellent but the service was mediocre at best. We weren't sure what kind of wine we wanted until after we ordered our entrees and had to flag a bus boy down to get someone to take our wine order. We saw bread on other tables and finally asked the same bus boy if we could have bread too (this was after our salad course). We barely saw our server. Good food overall but dreadful service.

This was not bad for a Mothers Day buffet and we would probably go again. The reason i did not give it a higher rating in some areas is because they put us outside in the sun and it was very uncomfortable especially for older people.

The food is excellent. The staff was stretched far too thin, and everyone was waiting for drinks or food or their check, as the staff had far too many customers to d al with. Poor management is clearly at fault.
If you go, I HIGHLY recommend eating in the bar.
Service is better there, yet still, overworked and understaffed.
We won’t go again to the main dining room or courtyard.
Management needs to staff extra qualified staff for busy times!

The food was excellent however the service was a little slow. We had asked for three salads and a soup. The soup was delivered 15 minutes after getting our salads and we had to ask for the soup as well. I would go back and try it again for a second chance .

I love this restaurant. The food is fabulous, the ambience is great, the service is wonderful. It is small and quiet so you can actually carry on conversations and be able to hear! We took out of town friends there and they were so very impressed and loved it as well. One of our favorite places to eat!

Stanley's Steakhouse has excellent food and excellent waiters. My husband and I each had the prime rib medium rare and it was perfect. My friend had the lobster tail and she enjoyed it very much. Another person at the table had a chicken dish and raved about it. Everyone was very satisfied. The prices are high but the quality is superb.

Disappointing and expensive... We are a group who loves to dine together and have fun and we really aren't that picky. We thought this looked pretty good. The meats were great cuts but served barely warm. They only had two baked potatoes (at a Steak House???) left so we were fine with a substitute but the mashed potatoes were cold, the alfredo pasta was the other choice but not so fun with Prime Meats as a real baked potato. Someone made a mistake in ordering so the Lamb Shank that three of us wanted wasn't available and nobody wanted Pork instead. We told the server that her kitchen really let her down and we'd like her manager to know. It was a very long wait for the food, too. Don't know what happened but they really missed the mark. When you spend over $40 bucks for steak you'd like it to be hot. The drinks were good but I doubt we'd go here again.
