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

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
