A little over a year ago, the owners of this place tore down their old building and built a new one right on the same property. The problem is, they also got rid of the large lot on the back of the property which was designated as big truck parking. They are now building what appears to be a motel... More

This was our first visit after the demolition and relocation of the restaurant into a new combination building of a convenience store/gas station/restaurant. Takes a bit of getting used to the idea that the "deteriorating ambiance" of the original Stan's has been replaced by a sleek new place . . . it is cleaner and needed to be. Now for... More

You really need to step it up or you are gonna go down in flames. The old Stan's was looking a little worse for the wear... I understand why they had... More

So we went back to Stan's, taking along friends we knew would enjoy such a place. Not the same Stan's! It has been renovated and has lost that ambiance it once had. Additionally, they seem to have become infected with the same bug that bothers so many other Columbia restaurants now- Extremely Slow Service. As in, make sure you have... More

Service was fine but the food was just very very bland. I remember when it was a treat to go there and the food was great. Sadly it appears that is a thing of the past. For the price I paid I can promise I won't be back.
