Fantastic brunch. Reasonable prices. Best Bloody Mary in NorCal—breakfast in a class with celery peppers olives and candied bacon.

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.

Excellent and attentive service. Food was prepared to our specifications and the presentation was very nice. The dry aged steak and prime rib were excellent. We will definitely be back on our next wine tasting outing in Amador county.

First ordered sparking wine and the waitress came back and said they were out of that one. Then I ordered the lamb shank and was told someone ordered pork shanks by mistake. They only lowered the dinner by 5$. My husband had the 14oz aged ribeye which had no flavor and was tough. The only things that were good was the white Zin, the carrot cake and our server

Well, it was a "DATE NIGHT" for my husband and I. We went away saying we need to do this more often. The food was excellent. The staff was very friendly. Loved it!

Very expensive, even for just two people! Good food and service but sooo expensive:/

2.0Dined on February 14, 2018

The service was terrible. The waitress seemed to have an attitude . Wine by the glass was very expensive, $13.00 per glass for a average Cab. The food was mediocre to say the best.
I don,t know what happened to this restaurant . We've been here many times before and it used to be one of our favorites. After Valentines evening, it is now on my "no go" list.

Had the surf and turf Valentine's day special. It was yummy and filling. Fairly priced.

This was one of the worst experiences I've ever had dining anywhere.
We had out of town guests and chose this restaurant as we've had
excellent previous experiences there. Our night was bad from start
to finish. Limited menu and sold out options , unprofessional staff,
food not prepared as ordered, response of management- all was a
huge disappointment.

Arrived at 5:20 for 5:30 reservation, seated in small private room, service kinda rough getting going even though we were about the only ones in there. Finally got our order in, noticed large group arriving AFTER our order was placed, turned out it was a group of 75. Took a while to get cocktails and by 6:20 we had finished the one salad we ordered, main course didn't arrive till 6:40ish (after I went looking for someone to say we had been waiting quite sometime). Food was mediocre, wife's scallops warm not hot. Waiter made 2 trips to bring entrees with slight delay in between.

I making the reservation or getting seated no one ever mentioned that there might be delay to due large party.

For me, this place is better for drink and french dip sandwich in the bar.

Disappointed. Prime rib tough. And pricy.
Prior visit was wonderful, but no value this time.

Limited menu for Christmas Eve. Selection of 3 apprtizetd, dalads & main course. Was not busy and service was slow and had to remind of cocktail ordered. Food was just adequate. The value wad aiye overpriced I feel. There were 3 of us and with cocktails the bill was over $250. Will go again however due do the history of building.

The fruit was soggy, disgusting and inedible. The grilled cheese, which I had remembered as being the best in Amador Co, was at best "meh"; it was NOT tasty. The crab sandwich was also "meh." The servers were pleasant, even tho one person's lunch was substantially delayed past the serving to all other members of our party. Not a nice experience for that person; too bad; no recompense. They didn't even offer anything to tide him over; instead, they ignored him. Not a lot of caring for customers exhibited here.

Our intent was to have a nice Christmas luncheon in the best restaurant in Jackson. We were way disappointed, in the food and the service.

Food was excellent but service was poor. We didn't see our waiter from the time he delivered our appetizers to the time he brought the desert menu. He never stopped by to ask how the steak was cooked, never refilled our water or asked if we wanted another drink.

The food was excellent and the service was very good. They did not get a five-star on overall because when I went online to take a pre-look at the menu on December 1st. The menu came back with a note that they were "Actively working on their new Fall menu for 2017" ~ sorry, that ship already sailed since it is now almost Winter. I let the Hostess know and she was going to tell the Manager.
On Service, the only reason they didn't get five stars was because the waitress came and asked us if we would like another round. We stated we would and 15 minutes went by while we both continued to eat. The waitress came by and my husband cancelled his beer. You could tell she was a little miffed and pressured him to take it and he responded "No, I'm finished with my meal now." She then went and brought my wine as I was still eating. In fairness, I know they pick up the drinks from the bar so I'm not sure if she forgot to pick them up or the bartender got behind. And all other service she provided was timely.

The service in the restaurant was excellent, very accommodating and attentive. We each ordered prime rib and it was disappointing. It had no flavor at all and while excepting tender it could been even more so. When I pay $100+ for dinner for two, one glass of house wine and a simple gin and tonic I expect perfection in the meat. Whole we paid over $100 for this meal we did not feel it was a $100 meal.

Prime rib was tender and service was good. Will go back if I’m in Jackson again.

The steak were tender and cooked to perfections. We liked the soup and salad dishes, too. It is located in an old hotel that had been completed remodeled to look very Gold County/Western. They have delicious local wines available. The local zinfandel is perfect with steak. The staff is friendly and attentive.

The Filet Mignon and Salmon entrées were a very good follow to the yummy Tuna Carpaccio appetizer, and the Lemon Bar dessert was heavenly! Moriah and the staff kept us well, but not overly so, attended, thanks!

Our first visit was not as good as we thought it would be. My husband got his salad and he was almost done before I received my soup that I had to ask for. His baked potato was only partially cooked and cold. I had to ask two times for sour cream that I had included in my order. My husbands prime rib was very good. The brussel sprouts were wonderful. We will go back again because we never judge a restaurant by only one visit.

My second time here, on a business trip. Had NY steak (12 oz), confetti (vegetable) salad, a baked potato, a glass of wine, and chocolate toffee cake. Salad was ordinary; potato was, well, a baked potato. The steak was flavorful and prepared properly for medium rare. However, it showed little marbling. It looked more like a sirloin that NY. It was a bit chewy as a result. Still, a pretty decent steak. The cake was just too intense. It was soooo sweet that I could only eat about half, and really the sweet overwhelmed the chocolate flavor. The toffee flavor was barely detectable. The oreo type crust didn't help. Back to the drawing board on that one. The wine was actually quite good and $11. Overall, a decent meal and one of only a handful of options in Jackson, CA. My first meal here was better. Service was average. With 15% tip, about $76.

We came here for our anniversary. I wanted a good steak and this was the only place that came up on google for Jackson. After assuming the entrance was on Water Street, since that is the address, we discovered we needed to enter from the side. A very nondescript entrance. The overall atmosphere was fine, although the wall sconces could use a good cleaning. The waiter Jordan and his assistant were pleasant and just the right amount of attentive. I ordered the rib eye medium and my husband had the sirloin medium well. Both were cooked perfectly and delicious but our meal was delayed because the sirloin needed longer cooking. So timing could be improved. The sautéed zucchini with onions and red bell peppers was ok. My husband didn’t eat his as he doesn’t like zucchini or onions. My loaded baked potato was good with cheese and bacon. My husband liked his mashed potatoes. We had the chocolate moose ccaramel cake...super rich and yummy. Glad we shared.
Final bill was $96 for two steak dinners, tea and sprite and the cake. Not a horrible cost but not a weekly splurge.
We will return for their Sunday brunch and for dinner for another special occasion.

We got great service and the food was excellent! The only thing was, we went on a Sunday night and there was hardly a soul there. Just two other couples, one of whom left quite a bit before we did, so it was very quiet, almost dull.

The hotel has so much history, it's a really interesting place. Guitar music during dinner added a really nice touch. Food was FANTASTIC.

I have mixed feelings about the restaurant. My food was superb, my husbands was not. His baked potato was over cooked., rib eye was very salty. We chalked his meal up to not reading the entrée description. The service however left much to be desired. When two meals with one glass of wine cost $100, I expect service to make up what may have been lacking in the meal. This was not the case. Our waiter spent half of his time going out the back door to visit. We informed him at the start this was our wedding anniversary so perhaps I expected him to check back occasionally. After completing our meal I asked for a to go container, it took 20 plus minutes for the server to bring it. She remarked she had forgotten. With the box of food on the table our waiter still took 15 minutes to return to ask about dessert. I informed him that I felt like a red headed step child and would like our check.

We went for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. We were seated quickly, given very discrete but attentive service. There sufficient staff that no waiting for assistance was ever required. Our server was outstanding. The meal was well done and worth the price. The desert was unbelievably delicious; finished every bite even though the meal was really sufficient. It was a special occasion you know. It was a simply outstanding evening and thanks to Stanley's and their super staff; table side and kitchen alike.

A special occasion, took my two daughters out for birthday dinner's. Was very crowded, had large groups in side rooms, probably accounts for the very , very slow service. The food was marginal at best, mashed potatoes were cold and Brussel sprouts were hard. My daughter ordered the T-bone special, 3/4 of the filet portion was gone. I am a local person and had anticipated a good meal, as advertised, very disappointing.

We were totally satisfied and pleased with our experience at Stanley's Steakhouse. Everything was perfect from the staff, to the surroundings, to the delicious food and special cocktails. It was a first class experience. We truly appreciate the friendly and professional staff. Food was the best I have ever had anywhere.

5.0Dined on June 16, 2017

When I first tried the steakhouse I was expecting another clichéd, dusty, small town steakhouse. Just one visit to Stanley's steakhouse and they have a customer for life. The staff is probably the most friendly conversational staff I've ever dined with. The steaks can be a little pricey but well worth every penny.

I have been coming here for over five years. Maybe this review is a bit critical but when you are paying the prices demanded these days I expect a little better. The food was, as it always is, on point. Everything came out as expected and was tasty. I think I am just getting bored with the menu and which it would change a little more often. Or offer more exciting specials. The big downfall, as with most places I have been lately is the service. Again if they expect me to pay this much I expect never to have to ask for a drink to be refilled, I had to ask 4 times. Work on the little things and more stars will be easy to get. I will be back and still recommend this place to anyone.
