This is a very fun place - for humans and for dogs (more on the latter in a minute). We came here after reading they have great nachos. They do. A bit pricy ($13 with chicken) but the plate is huge and the cheese is spread throughout (not just on top). I had a brisket sandwich which was good -... More

We really do love our four legged neighbors and are elated to have the opportunity to meet them on a daily basis! After all, we feel as though our dogs are members of our family as well. Thank you very much for the review! Take care and have a perfect week!! More

Fun atmosphere for lunch. Suggested we return last week. Menu changed online and decided to wait to see if they add pasta back in with the next change.

Are you tired of life's little misfortunes? Stop by Stanley's after work for a shot. If David is behind the bar ask for a Reeses peanut butter cup shot, or if Erick is behind the bar, ask for a Seido (pronounced si e do), or if Morgan is behind the bar, ask for a Morgan butterscotch Carmel shot.

My husband and I stopped here for an appetizer and a couple of beers before the Vikings game last night. It is a fun, friendly atmosphere in a nice old building. The bartender was very friendly and attentive. We ordered the Fiesta Fries, which were described as nachos with fried potatoes instead of chips. They were DELICIOUS! And a perfect... More

We went to Stanley's again for bingo and take a look at the new menu. Kevin told me to try the enchiladas, so I did. Don't know the cook that made them but he did an excellent job. My taste buds are still dancing the hutchie Kutcher dosey doe turn around 2 step with happiness.

Went there for an early dinner and had a good time. The pulled pork sandwich and fish tacos were wonderful. Lots of fun seeing the dogs arrive with owners. There is a special doggy menu, yoga mats for them to relax on and water bowls are provided. It was fun watching the dogs. Decorated with many beautiful plants. Great time.

Big , juicy flavorful burgers were delicious. We are fans of the Red Cow and thought the burgers here were equally as good. Saturday night at 7pm and plenty of open tables. Lots of TVs to watch the Twins game. Good selection of beer and specialty drinks too. All $1 off 3 -7pm during happy hour, even on Saturdays! Nice... More

Stopped there yesterday with family for my first visit to this establishment and was pleasantly surprised by the all aspects of the bar/restuarant.

Thank you for the review Jerry! Its funny you mentioned the radiator tables! Our humble barroom was once an establishment known as Stasiu's. When we took over ownership of the building it was very important for us to use some of the relics of the past if you will. Those radiators were once the heat source of our building! We... More
