“I go to Stanley's for lunch during work a lot. This is a great place- not too fancy, not a dive bar, but just right. They have a solid menu of lunch, dinner and bar food. great for family. Secret tip: Thu- Sat there is a fancy drink secret speakeasy called "Al's place" upstairs. If they are open, enter through the photo booth and tell the door guy "I'm here to see some furniture."”
