Can't tell you about the food. two other tables in the place. Waiter took our beverage order. I got my water and we were waiting for the drinks from the bar. 20 minutes later we walked out. Don't know why he ignored us. Won't be back

This place was highly recommended by some friends and it sounds really cool so we thought we'd check it out. The food was fine. It sounded a lot better on the menu though. Our waitress was just ok. We heard her telling other people more info on the restaurant and sauces, etc but when she had greeted us it was... More

We ventured to Stillwater in late spring, on a gorgeous 75 degree day. I think this place was featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives so I decided to give it a shot. It has a nice little patio facing the main street. The service was excellent. We had a young server who was very friendly and great and making recommendations.... More

This is as close as you get to a Caribbean vacation without hopping a plane. Delicious barbecue, great run drinks, beach music, and great ambiance. Definitely worth the trip to Stillwater.

If you have yet to try this place, you are missing out. We drive over an hour just to get to this place. Had a nice dinner out on the patio last night. The chicken wings are so good here! The pimento wood they use to smoke the chicken gives it a great flavor. These are the best wings I... More

This restaurant has been on TV foodie show for its' excellent barbecue. We always go there for lunch or dinner when in Stillwater. You can also order the sauce to go in a container for use the next day and have it seasoned from mild to very hot according to your taste. The decor is a pirate theme which I... More

Stopped in here based on their Food Network review. They might be known for their BBQ and Chicken, but for me, they will be remembered for the slow service and cold food. The good: The sauces, pulled pork, and chicken tacos were tasty. The bad: took quite about an hour to get our food, about 20 of that was waiting... More

I've been to Smalleys many times and have always had great food and service. They have two outdoor patios to choose from and really good Dark and Stormy's! Love their fish tacos too.

We saw this in Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, and wanted to try it. We were led to the third floor for seating even though seats were available on the first two floors. Our waitress came quickly to show us the beer selections. While we looked over the food menu, we had some questions. My husband asked what kind of bread... More
