I would rate less than 1 star if I could. We have frequented Stan's for over 15 years and the new owner's have really lowered the quality. Our last visit we waited for 45 minutes before our order was taken. Granted there was only one server there on Saturday morning. We watched people come in and get up leave while... More

ordered breakfast, worst western omelet I have ever eaten. Vegtables were uncooked, cheese was still in shreds, hadn't even been heated. Waited forever for the waitress and still had to run her down for our check. won't go back

Amazing breakfast!!! Make sure you order bacon! It was the best bacon I've ever had! I was told that Cracker Barrel was started by the concept of this restaurant. It was also very recently re-built so it is very clean.

We did not find the staff to be rude. Our server was very nice. Breakfast was good. Their country gravy has nice taste. Prices are wonderful. Food and pricing better than Crackle Barrel and they are right across the road. Only complaint, I asked for a to-go for my beverage and our server very nicely said she could not do.... More

We ate here on the recommendation of the front desk staff at our hotel . The empty tables were all dirty . The staff was very busy , but the tables got cleaned quite quickly . There was bad weather in the vicinity so this place was really swamped with customers . The food was good . The restaurant and... More

This is a local favorite, I have always stopped here when traveling by over the past 40 years, country cooking at its best. Favorites are the fish, green tomatoes, beans and cornbread.. it's also a little souvenir shop. Very friendly and down home atmosphere

Stopped by and met up with another couple while driving back to our home in Franklin. Greeted by Server who appeared angry and unfriendly towards us. Numerous problems with meal, ie having to ask for knife for steak, rolls, check, etc., along with the bad attitude. Also, saw her in the Kitchen area talking loudly about something. I called the...

Stan's has been totally renovated and in my opinion some things should stay the same. Apparently when they built the new restaurant, all the former employees left as well as the cooks. The nostalgic atmosphere is totally gone. We sat ourselves and waited over 20 minutes for a server to even acknowledge us and take our drink order. She was... More

My husband and I look for non-chain restaurants as much as we can in our travels. We happened upon this place and thought we would give it a try. Oh, my goodness....cute as can be and rude as can be at the same time. We arrived around 9 am on a Saturday morning. Most of the tables were either dirty... More
