We had another outstanding meal at Stillwater, our favorite restaurant in Whitefish. While they don't have a bar, a good selection of beers on tap and wines, including the 10 for $20 list, cover just fine. We shared the tender and tasty grilled octopus and the evening special salmon/lobster shu mai. The Cajun pecan salad was very good and lightly... More

We took our whole crew of six kids, grandpa and a friend out to dinner for our daughter's 17th birthday. We are definitely Montanan's and look it, snow boots, grandpa's beard, open carry; Duck Dynasty chic, if you will. No one was snooty. Just really good food. Even the coffee was amazing. I actually had the chicken (at a fish... More

This was our 3rd trip to this restaurant. Previous 2 visits were excellent. The third took a nosedive. This was the first day of a scaled back menu, and we were not impressed. Fresh seafood in this region is a treat, but the dishes left on the menu are just too foo foo. No option for a nice piece of... More

Possibly the best fish restaurant I've been to. Good selection, high quality and very tasty. This place alone makes driving to Whitefish worth it.

Recently called for a reservation for large group, when we arrived we were at separate tables which was disappointing. Upon ordering we inquired about separate checks. The response was , "No worries, we won't do separates but we will take as many cards as need be." Upon receiving the check, (remember different tables) it took a while to separate and... More

Thank you for your review and patronage. Although I'm glad to hear you enjoyed our meal with us I hate hearing that we didn't do right by you in way of service. I know there is a fine line between a server being attentive and overbearing. I have spoken to the server that worked with you and we have immediately... More

I thought this would be a good Friday night treat. The waitress was more concerned about herself, the prices did not reflect the basically bland seafood. Save your time and money, eat elsewhere. Say, Three Forks Grille???

Thankyou for your review, and I will do my best to give this a response although there isn't much in your review that let's us discuss our shortcomings with your dining experience. We fly in fresh seafood and never serve frozen fish, and we change our menu seasonally so we may always be working on more innovative and delectable dishes.... More

When you pay $25 a plate, the food should be amazing and you leave wanting to come again. We were extremely disappointed. We ordered the clams and shrimp for appetizer, which had hardly any flavor. The creamy potatoes were dry and lukewarm. We read all the reviews prior to coming here thinking it was spectacular; It was NOT. Downtown Whitefish... More

While researching places to eat in Whitefish, Montana, I came across the Stillwater Fish House. They had stated they have been rated #1 new place to eat. I definitely agree that this place is a must. They are just a little bit on outskirts of town across from a lake. Atmosphere is very nice, smaller venue, but open. They have... More

Ashamed to say, we had not been to this restaurant...and probably wouldn't have gone except one of my guests gave them an excellent recommendationand told us to check them out! Being in Montana, 3 states away from the closest ocean, we have learned not to get excited about seafood. But Stillwater is excellent and fresh (not frozen!). If you want... More
