Stanley's food goes up and down...they're kind in a rut right now. There are better venues for ribs...their burgers are slightly better than average...their consistent item is their ribs...was in on a Monday evening - burger night...good deal for what you get. Also, they changed from steak fries to "boardwalk fries"...but boardwalk fries are fried in peanut oil...these aren't. Give... More

While on business in the area we were taken to Stanly's to make advantage of the Tuesday "two for the price of one" rack of ribs. The service was fast and the ribs were great, meat was tender and falling off the bone, some of the best ribs I've had in the US. Highly recommended if you are in the... More

There is an impressive menu appetizers along with sandwiches and entrees. They have quite the soup and salad bar. In the back side of the menu list a number of tap beers and Cocktails. Everything...

My wife and I stopped in Stanley's Monday evening 3/13/2017. We often stop on Monday's for the burger and bar specials that are served until 7. Place was packed and the bar area we normally sit was occupied by a private party. We sat in a booth on the other side of the bar. Our server stopped by and I... More

As a fan of ours for years, it's disappointing to hear that you were upset about our bar food special policy. Our happy hour specials are the best in the area, and as most restaurants do, these specials are only in the bar area. We added our second bar to the specials 3 years ago making 1/3 of our seating...

Stopped in Stanley's this past Sunday night. Tried the ribs for the first time in a very long time and I must say they were fantastic. Melted off the bone. I went with the Jack Daniels sauce and it finished the ribs off great! They offer 4 types of sauces, rubs for different styles so you really can't go wrong..... More

Every trip home I go back to Stanley's for lunch. Food is reliably good...not great, but dependable. Great atmosphere, service. They have a good salad bar, or salad bar/sandwich combo. Portions are generous. Decent beer list

I went to the restaurant for a business dinner. My colleague recommended prime rib steak, as I had never tasted it. The meat was increadible, one of the most tender pieces I have ever eaten. Atmosphere was very wecoming and staff were always helpful. Warsteiner beer was available on tap - always a winner.

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
