I have eaten here several times and it has really good food. The waitress we had was very friendly. Would suggest this place to anyone. It is a little expensive but so are many places in Stillwater and the food still isn't half as good.

We have eaten there before and had good meals and service. But this last time the food was tasteless and the service was terrible, we could not even get silverware even when we asked for them. We do not plan on eating there again.

I ate dinner here based on TA reviews, but it was not a good experience. The service was not very attentive, the beer over priced, the menu very limited, and the entree I ordered was average at best. $30+ for one beer and a pasta entree was not a good deal, especially in MN. The entree was shrimp diablo, and... More

We spent the a gorgeous Saturday in Stillwater antique shopping and decided to have lunch with a view of the St. Croix River. The Walleye sandwich was awesome! My spouse had the Crab Cakes and love them! The view. The view was worth the trip! The outside dining is right on the river with a beautiful view of the river,... More

We don't go out often and this was one of the places we relied on for a good meal when we do. No more. We had lunch and the soup was so sweet it could have been used over ice cream for dessert. The Mediterranean salad was so salty I could taste few of the individual ingredients. Sorry, we won't... More

We were not greeted as we entered. I decided after a few minutes of waiting to walk past the please wait to be seated sign and go to the bar. The bartender was pretty good. he flagged a server who sat us and apologized. The views are great. The food was good, but there was nothing exciting on the menu,... More

I had a wonderful dinner at the Dock Cafe last Friday night. The restaurant sits right on the St. Croix river with a beautiful view. There is an outside dining deck and also indoor dining with huge picture windows. It was raining so we ate inside but it didn't damper the view or the experience. I had the Scallops entree... More

We come to Stillwater almost every year for our anniversary. We try someplace new each time. Today we came to Dock Cafe. The cheese plate was yummy and filling. The burger my husband ordered was great. The walleye fingers were average. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable.

Acknowledging that "different strokes for different folks", there is nothing more peaceful than dining near a body of water, be it an ocean, a lake, or a river. Dining at the Dock Cafe is definitely peaceful. The cafe is right alongside a national scenic river, the St. Croix, that runs between Minnesota and Wisconsin. The Dock has both dining inside... More

I really enjoy the Dock...for ambiance, it can't be beat. They have a nice selection of wines and the best cheese tray around. I tend to like lunches more than dinner here, but it is a safe bet any time of day. Waiting for a seat a along the river is totally worthwhile. I love the big booths in the... More
