Ate there last week for a business lunch. Had a Traverse Bay Chicken Salad. Their version of a "Michigan" salad. For the novice, a Michigan Salad, or at the Stillwater they call it a Traverse Bay (Chicken) Salad, has cherries on it. Most have Bleu Cheese, candied walnuts or pecans and a honey or maple vinaigrette dressing. Stillwaters had the... More

We have dined here three times since moving to the area. The food and service has never disappointed. I've tried everything from macadamia nut crusted fish to the filet, sandwichs and chicken fingers and the food is always very good. Our servers have always been fantastic and happy. It's pricy ($100 for 2 adults 1 child with no booze) but... More

We live in Bay City but when I take my daughter or sister-in-law to the U of M hospitals we always find time for the finest lunch experience anywhere! I believe you get what you pay for, the meals are always excellent and not overpriced. The open face steak sandwich is excellent as are the other lunchtime meals we have... More

We were so disappointed in my grandsons first time at this restaurant ! We were there for his graduation celebration. The food was worth half the price, dinner for three was $ 100.00 with 2 specials and no alcohol involved ! Will not go back, a chain restaurant would have been better.

I have eaten there several times and have usually enjoyed my meal. I have not enjoyed the prices. This time four of a group of six left underwhelmed. Reservations are timely and accomodating. They had no problem getting us in on a busy Saturday evening. Parking is horrible during peak times since its close to other restraunts in the area.... More

One of the best group meals ever. Stillwater added servers so everyone was served drinks, appetizers, salads, main courses, and checks VERY efficiently--and with good humor. Someone they got all the food out at once, all hot (or chilled, if that was appropriate), all delivered to the correct person, and all tasty. Thank you!

Many people rave about Stillwater Grill, but we always seem to walk away disappointed. We have tried it now four or five times in the fourteen years we have been in Brighton, the latest last evening. Maybe our standard has been set too high, but much of the food seems to be highly processed and not prepared on site. We... More

We always go to Stillwater for special occasions. Pricey- but you know it's going to be good! Twin lobster tails and caramel apple martinis. Yummy!

We live in Brighton and when ever we want a special meal that we know is going to be good, we go to Stillwater. The steak tips are the best and the service is always great. If you are in Brighton, don't be shy of this restaurant.
