Came here with my brother and dad for dinner. It's right in downtown Stillwater not far from the St. Croix River and the lift bridge. We ate outside as the weather was perfect and had great views of the river valley. The food was really good we had onion rings before dinner and i had the alfredo which was excellent.... More

Last ate here in 2012 and had a horribly aggravating experience. We though we'd try the place again, but I should have known better. Still the same old problems with the wait staff...tumbleweed blowing through the door to the kitchen, interrupted very infrequently by an actual human being passing through. Seriously, does anyone at the pub understand customer service, or... More

We stopped their for some munchies and a beer and loved the view from the deck. I ordered the Reuben dip and my hubby ordered the walleye fingers. Both item portions were large and very good. The wait staff was good and the atmosphere was good.

After an afternoon of sightseeing and shopping, we were looking for a relaxing dinner spot. The view from the patio helped us choose to dine here. After we were seated and provided menus, a server arrived and we ordered the drink special, a simple tap beer. We got a bottle of beer but she said she would give us the... More

The service was horrible. We were there for over two hours and 75% of that time was waiting, waiting and waiting. The food was okay only. The only good thing was the view and it was a beautiful day. Won't be back.

This is a small restaurant bar with Irish food and a nice selection of Irish whiskey. The size give a feeling of a small town bar and the staff is very friendly. I see other reviews of the service.. I have been there 10 times in the last 6 months and haven't really noticed any major issues. If you are... More
