Good food at a fair price. Burgers are 1/2 pound and good. Menu has lots of choices. Parking can be difficult. It gets crowded and can be very noisy.

This is one of my favorite local spots. The staff is friendly and the food is excellent. I have never had anything here that I did not like. They have an extensive selection of craft and locally brewed beer that changes from time to time to keep the selection fresh. The atmosphere is classy yet casual. They have a nice... More

Had a half-birthday coupon from them and it was worth the drive to get a quick dinner. Food was fantastic as was the service. Fish and chips and chicken nachos. Drinks are higher priced but you are in Minneapolis and they have other specials that make up for the drinks. The happy hour and regular daily specials are great and... More

We usually end up at Stanley's at least once a month. The food is outstanding, the service is great and the specials are always worth trying. Love the soup, wings, sandwiches!

I came back to Minneapolis for the holidays, and my family went to Stanley's for a quick holiday lunch. It was completely packed, and now I know why. The place was packed for lunch, so our party of three ended up eating at the bar (no problem). The two people who joined me ordered the reuben, and they absolutely loved... More

Super clean. Great service! Tons of local tap beers! And excellent specials. Today Monday we are having a 1/2 priced burger with the purchase of any beverage (even NA) Best dog patio in the twin cities. Dogs get their own water bowl, laying mat, treats, and have a menu to order dinner from ("Mut" loaf, "Pooched" egg brunch bowl, etc)

Stanley's offers a thoughtful casual dining experience. My friend and I had a well-rimmed and finely spiced Bloody Mary each and enjoyed the Vegan Korean BBQ Tacos and the (handmade) Veggie Burger. The portion sizes were perfect--we left plenty full but did not have to deal with leftovers. The ingredients seemed fresh and of top quality. Food was also served... More

Nice pub in Nordeast MPLS. Very similar to dozens of places in the Twin Cities, but a good stop if you or your car is in Nordeast. Nice selection of beer and very nice food. So if can't afford Jax or want a change of pace, stop at Stanley's. this is a nice stop
