There is a large bar in the front and booths in the back.There are many draft craft beers available as well as an excellent salad bar. Typical menu with outstanding ribs that come with a choice of sauces... More

Try the Salad Bar – its really good I was here with a large group at lunch time, and we had fun. The server was great, nice and easy to work with. I had the salad bar, which was amazing! Everything was fresh, crips and the way it should have been. The price was also really nice for lunch. The... More

On this recent visit we sat at a booth by the bar and ordered nachos with the works, including chili and guacamole. They did not disappoint and were as I had remembered it from years gone by.

Met three bud's I had not seen in years. It is a bar/restaurant. Beer was cold and of many varieties to choose from. One diner had salad bar(includes soup) and he was very impressed with quality. It looked fresh and he confirmed that. I opted for burger which they would not cook rare. Need only give it an "okay" as... More

I have lunch at Stanley's at least once a month, primarily when I'm meeting clients. The reason I suggest lunch there is that they have the absolute best salad bar in north Brandywine Hundred, and during weekdays, it's only $8.99, including soup. That is what I get 95% of the time. Other items on the menu are typical of a... More

this restaurant is very good, especially during football games: it has bar type food, lots of tv screens, and a bit noisy; everyone loves the atmosphere, however, so it is appealing to many people

Have eaten many times at Stanley's, for lunch and dinner, and never a bad meal. Lunch on a recent Friday was no different. We were seated immediately at just around noon. The place filled up while we were there. The menu is large and varied, and they have a wonderful salad bar. We were a party of 4, with 2... More

Had dinner with family and friends and had a great time. I'm a sucker for good Meat Loaf and Stanley's didn't disappoint. The meatloaf was well prepared sitting on a generous bed of smashed potatoes with a mean dark gravy that tied the dish together in a perfect balanced plate. I was slightly disappointed that my entree included only the... More

Just a really fun local sports bar with a great salad bar, terrific ribs and good pub grub. Be sure you great the onion rings tender inside and crispy outside. The soups are really good as well.

Before I travel, I scout out restaurants that have decent-looking gluten-free menus. So after a very long workday on a business trip, a colleague and I headed here to chow down and unwind. I got the GF steak tips and mashed potatoes bowl, and my dinner companion had the ribs, which he said were fantastic. We washed it all down... More
