I cannot remember the servers name, she was incredible. We walked in shortly after 2pm in which the dining room was supposed to be closed, there was one other table waiting for their food. The waitress told us normally we are closed however I have...some tiding up to do so go ahead and order. She was so pleasant and made sure our coffee cups were filled. The meal was delicious and hot. Definitely would reccomend this establishment even for families.More

I'm am from BC and had to come to Grand Prairie for medical reasons and we stayed in the Stanford Inn. Monica's Family restaurant is the restaurant that is on the property. As soon as we walked in the door the server greeted us with...a smile and let us pick our own seat. She was by our table instantly and was extremely friendly. As we've never been here before she made some suggestions of what was really good on the menu, and let me tell you that was one of the best breakfasts I had in a long time. It wasn't even 10 minutes and we had our order. We didn't even have our second bite in and she did a quality check. Our coffee cups were never empty and she made us feel so welcome. The young ladies name was Misty and if you ever get a chance plz plz head over there and let Misty treat you like family. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Huge shout out to Misty 💙💜💙💜💙More

We went for breakfast to Monica's on Monday, September 20, 2021. The Egg's Benedict was disappointing as the Hollandaise sauce was a pale yellow sauce with no flavour. Order was one Eggs Benedict and second order was sausage and eggs. Breakfast for two with two...coffees was almost $50. When paying with credit card, options for a tip were from 15% to 30%. This is not the United States where minimum wage is far lower than in Canada and in many states, waitresses and waiters receive far less than minimum wage at $2.50 per hour. When you pay for your meal in many states, you are not paying for service hence it is appropriate to pay for service by tipping. Here in Canada, we very much dislike intimidating tactics to extract a large tip from the customer. Having the credit card machine set for 15% to 30% is intimidating and the inference is that those rates are the expectation of the service staff. If waiting staff were being paid less than $5 per hour, the prices on the menu would be much lower. In reality, $49 for two breakfasts is paying for the service and is an expensive breakfast to start with. We will not be returning to Monica's as the food and facility do not justify the high prices.

This This is the second time I've had a lengthy stay at the Stanford and I loved the first time and am loving it equally so the secon time. All the staff are great especially Duke from the restaurant who bought me my delicious breakfast...every morning . I travel with my large dog and there is a dog area behind the hotel close to my room which is perfect and there is also a great deal of privacy here which is one of my favorite parts. All together my with my stay last time and my current stay I have zero complaints!More
