Three couples met there to sit and talk, we had great service and the food was pretty good, burgers and such. Kinda stuck in a corner but then we could talk to each other without constant distraction.

Great variety on menu and very friendly staff. Access is great for seniors on walkers or in wheelchairs. Staff was patient and we did not feel at all rushed to clear table. Fun stop. Great parking too.

A friend and I go to Stanley's a couple of times a month for lunch. I love the combo specials, which are two choices of smaller portion items. The prices are reasonableness and the food tasty. The service is excellent. Try the Fried Portobello Mushrooms...More

Sorry to hear that we missed the mark with our Wings. We have addressed the issues. Thanks for the heads up

We had wonderful spicy chicken wings to start My husband liked their extensive bar. I had hamburger with onion strings and my husband had barbecue with the same. Good cheap chardonnay. Not much ambiance, but good inexpensive food.
