Less than a year after it opened, Stanford’s at Clay Terrace has closed while it transitions to a new name and menu. The restaurant closed Jan. 24 and will reopen as Henry’s Tavern in early April.

“As well as the Stanford’s brand has been received, we felt that bringing a new concept to the market that is unlike any other in the area would really invigorate the dining experience,” General Manager Mark Schaefer said. “Something new, exciting and fresh.”

And, something that will attract even more customers.

“Our hopes are to engage not only our current loyal guests, but new guests, and bring a new flair to the area with an amazing menu and enticing atmosphere,” Schaefer said.

The change won’t mean an increase in pricing, however.

“The menu prices are similar to our current price point; some items are even less expensive,” Schaefer said. “We anticipate seeing a wide variety of the market demographic enjoy our newest concept and everything it has to offer. It is a concept for all types of diners.”

A concept and change management is looking forward to bringing to Carmel.

“We are all very excited about this opportunity to bring this exciting new concept to the market. We look forward to seeing our old friends and making some new ones as we move forward,” said Schaefer

The new restaurant hasn’t released a menu yet, but other Henry’s Tavern locations around the country offer burgers, sandwiches, wings and salads at prices found at a typical sports bar.

    Please bring back Kincaid’s! Quality went down when this location became a Stanford’s and Carmel lost a niche for those looking for great food at good prices (atmosphere/price point at bar was great). The Henry’s Tavern idea sounds like a crowded concept with a Chili’s, Applebee’s, Fox & Hounds, Red Robin, Don Pablo’s, BW3 and Boombozz Tap House within 1 mile of this location. Hope Henry’s Tavern offers something unique and some great food!
