Food is great but can be a wait for a table

Phil's has been around for years in Stillwater and has survived the bridge construction better than ever. I would say it is crowded rather than "cozy" but others may disagree. Food is first rate and a reasonable value.

Tara offers classic dining options for anyone looking for a bit of a throwback to a simpler time. While the red meat, well prepared along with a baked potatoe would be my suggestion, their tasty Greek selections are also a good choice. Only problem is the noise level that is inevitable due to the popularity of this local favorite.

Phil's Club Tara Hideaway has excellent food in an absolutely wonderful setting. Although some of the dishes are overpriced a bit, the food is consistently superb. Very solid!

It's true, it is noisy and crowded, but absolutely worth it for the great food and service. Highly recommend.

We were turned on to this place by friends and after the first visit we were hooked. This restaurant has a cozy cabin feel. It is such a good place to eat that every time we have gone it has been very busy. I have enjoyed the lamb chops on my visits, and it is exceptional here. Great place for... More

I hadn't been to Tara Hideaway in years, but a group went last weekend. One friend goes every chance she gets. When I asked her what was particularly good to order - she said she hasn't had a bad meal there. I debated about ordering something Greek, but decided to go with walleye instead (hazelnut crusted). It was excellent! I... More
