Food, beer, music, friends and an awesome atmosphere make for a memorable time. Go early or you won't have a parking spot or a table. The buzzard lady is unforgettable. I was impressed when they stopped the party and played "God bless America ". I would definitely go back!

Stopped for drinks and people watch. My daughter in laws great grandparents, grandmother, mother, aunt and uncle use to live in Goodland 30 years ago on Mango. Her mom was texting her what to look for.

Tho the weather was crappy, we came prepared & had fun. Music was great & service was fab! We don't know if you'd call it a festival, but the mullet basket was tasty & the beer was cold. The band engaged the audience which was fun too!

I'm not sure what one could say about Stan's on a Sunday afternoon except that it's special. No need to primp or spruce, just come as you are - just like the other 1,000 plus participants on any given Sunday. Rain or shine, this place comes alive with a wide ranging crowd, pretty typical bar food, drinks in plastic cups... More

As soon as you get out of your vehicle whether it's a boat or car you can tell this place is something different. It doesn't matter if you drive a Harley a Honda or a Maserati. If you are a ditch digger or a defense attorney it doesn't matter. If you're young or old this place is an absolute blast.... More

We had a blast! This place was recommended to us for a fun Sunday afternoon hangout....they were right! This large, open air location has water access and is a perfect venue for this weekly party. If you're looking for a huge, laid back cookout with fantastic live music, strong drinks, a crowd that is both diverse and friendly, this place... More

My dad was visiting and I had to take him on a Sunday afternoon. Great time. Good music. Cold food. It's such a quirky area and eclectic group that gathers- you'll find Harleys and Mercedes parked all over and everything in between. Family friendly. Pet friendly. We had a cold beer and went down the street for lunch but this... More
