We stopped in after a river boat ride, too late to try the food but just in time to have one of the most fun times in a very long time. The DJ had the karaoke set up and in between people singing they played super fun songs and really cool mixed versions that you never hear on the radio... More

We had a wedding at Rafters this past weekend and the staff was amazing! We had a lot of decorations and they took care of all of it with the help of two people the couple had oversee this part. Our intention was to help with the set up but they took over and it was beautiful. The food was... More

I have been to Rafters a handful of times. The food is average, but at least it's at a reasonable price. Two times I have been there and sat down at the bar and have not been acknowledged by anyone, even though I was one of three people in the joint. So I got up and left. A few days... More

Wonderfully beautiful day over looking the Mississippi River in Stillwater, MN. Enjoy drinks and Cat Fish Fingers $9.99. When you stop you have to go on the roof.

Bopping around Stillsville on a Saturday night. Attempted to use Rafters roof top deck, but was told it was closed due to rain. It had rained for 20 minutes 2 hours ago. The place was maybe 20% full. They couldn't take the time to get it ready? All of the other outdoor seating areas in town were open. Not the... More

We were patrons of the rooftop on 6/20 with another couple. When it came time to pay the bill the other couple had cash but did not want to wait for change (service was extremely slow). I suggested she leave the cash and I would adjust my tip so that between the 2 tabs we left a 20% tip. When... More

We visited on a Wednesday evening and it was only moderately busy. We ordered drinks, wine and a tap beer. It took 25 minutes to get our drinks and no apology. Then they said they were out of pasta due to the busy 4th of July weekend (which ended three days earlier). Really?!?! The food they did have available was... More

Went there for lunch on Mother's Day. We sat on the rooftop deck which was lovely, but the service and the food less than average. We waited close to 20 minutes to get our drink order and get a menu. When the food finally came two out of the five orders were incorrect. The Bloody Mary bar was sloppy and... More

We've been here a number of times to grab a beer and sandwich after a day of arduous shopping or wandering around the very loiterable Stillwater. It seems to me they've hiked their prices to where a burger and most sandwiches are on or over ten bucks per; and while that's not an awfully high price for a classier joint... More

Went there with a group of people for the Best Burger in the Valley contest and all the burgers seemed like frozen beef patties that were freezer burned. Asked for them to be medium, but they probably came out of the freezer cooked. The service was horrible and we had to go to five different tables to find ketchup. We... More
