I went to this hotel with 3 people from work while we were in the area for business. I got a burger for dinner. It was pretty expensive while being a small burger. My co-worker ordered shrimp scampi and said that it was very bland. It was also set up with long tables, so that, had the booths been full,... More

I've been here a couple times over the last few years and enjoyed it, but I took my husband's aunt here tonight who is visiting from Canada and I was so embarassed to have brought here her, the food was horrible. We ordered fried calamari as an appetizer, it was very under cooked and way too salty. The waiter said... More

The atmosphere is nice and the food was also good. The prices were not exactly cheap but not expensive either. Although there were some cheap eats on the menu. I would go back!

Was excited to go to the standard for valentines day, we always have great wine and appetizers so we thought we would try dinner! We had a reservation and had to wait; then couples with later reservations were taken first. We both ordered pasta dishes and neither of them had absolutely any taste! I couldn't put enough salt and pepper... More

For a first visit we had great food and service. It was early but were seated right away. Our server was friendly and our food came out promptly and hot. We had the scallops wrapped in bacon which were tasty and tender. The coconut shrimp lollipops were crispy with a nice sweet chili sauce but difficult and messy to eat.... More

I enjoy bringing clients to The Standard for lunch because it is clean, they serve good American food and you are able to carry on a conversation. It is not your typical mall restaurant.

Went here today for the first time & most definitely the last time. Overall feeling we got of the staff, service & food seems to be that no one cares - you would almost think they'd all been given word the place was in its final week of operation or something like that. A runner dropped off soup on the... More
