Has been a part of the Stillwater dining scene for YEARS (had first date here 50 years ago). Still love this place! Greek Salad is fabulous. Steaks always a good choice. Do

Great food, great service. Got there early, there was still a wait but well worth it! Can't wait to go back!

We have been here several times, including an anniversary dinner. The food and the service are always great. They can be busy but the wait staff and the hostess/host will treat you right. Both I and my husband love the Greek salad; excellent! The Gyro Plate is also great. I had a steak there awhile ago and it was fantastic... More

Stop here every year when visiting Stillwater. Great food. I always choose Greek and he always chooses steak. Wait staff is exceptional and friendly. Will go again next year when highway construction is done. Would (and have) recommended place to everyone. Lots of Stillwater history in picture on wall throughout the restaurant.

We ate here on a Friday night, and the place was hopping!! We were greeted at the door at 7:15 and were told the wait would be 50 minutes. Don't let that scare you - it was well worth the wait. We sat at the bar and received excellent service while we enjoyed a cocktail and previewed the menu. We... More

Went here for my birthday on a whim, I was very impressed. I ordered a prime rib, which was fantastic, not the best I've ever had, but really good. What made it amazing was the $3 upgrade to one of their signature salads, I got a duck confit and crispy skin salad, which was one of the best things I've... More

A lady who worked at the Winery recommended this place and said it was her favorite restaurant. Before we went, we read reviews about how busy and crowded it was, so we knew what to expect. With this in mind, we decided to go early to avoid some of the wait. We arrived at 5:15-5:30 and ended up waiting at... More

You can't beat the quality of food at the Tara, but unfortunately, because the dining room is so small, you can barely hear yourself think let alone carry on a conversation. They do take reservations, however, you can still wait up to half an hour to be seated. The food is very much worth the wait though. I usually have... More

Phil's Tara Hideaway is an icon in Stillwater with fantastic food, friendly and helpful staff, and a terrific atmosphere. They fix the best filet mignon I've had -- and the Mediterranean pork and lamb chops cannot be beat!! It can get busy, but is definitely worth the wait!! If you don't like to wait, try going on the early side.

the Tara has been a legend in our part of the country for many years but never so popular as when Phil took over and re-decorated the inside and brought us the most wonderful gourmet food ever and at very reasonable prices. The wait staff is first class. You would never be sorry to stop for lunch or dinner. Be... More
