We waited nearly an hour for entrees to arrive. Onion rings were overdone , greasy. Entree Salad was overdressed and stingy with the pear. Presentation was marginal. Salad bowl felt dirty on underside. Why do restaurants give you a choice of gloppy mashed potatoes or starchy white rice? Gluelike in this case. Halibut was fine as was house salad. Generally...

Great local, fresh food. All five of our meals were top notch. Service was excellent. Our server had a strong knowledge of the wine and beer. We liked that the owner visited at the end of the meal.

We greatly enjoyed our meal at Stillwater Fish House. The miso butterfish (a signature dish) was rated highly by all three who ordered it. The halibut was fresh and cooked just right. The wine list features several nice ones at very reasonable prices and some good ones at $20/bottle - unusual for most nice restaurants. Service was friendly and helpful... More

We started with a dozen assorted oysters which were fresh and briny, but I was disappointed in the sauces. I still prefer horseradish and cocktail sauce with oysters. I had the roasted halibut over sticky rice, with asparagus. This dish was excellent, the fish was flakey and perfectly cooked. I had a very good sake to accompany. It was 18... More

I have long believed that seafood restaurants, by and large, which are more than 300 miles from the ocean, are generally questionable. This restaurant is an exception. The fish (black cod and halibut, in our case) were both very fresh, very tasty. We visited on a busy Saturday night, and the staff seemed a bit overwhelmed, but the food was... More

Poor service, mediocre food, small portions, and Overpriced ! We had been looking forward to dining here ever since it opened and went there to celebrate a special event. There are many other better choices, with much better food and attitudes. We won't return.

Every time we're in WF we make sure we go to Stillwater Fish House. It has always been excellent. Although not in the easy downtown area, it's only 5 minutes west out of town (not a walk). Charming atmosphere, excellent service, interesting menu. Because it's fresh seafood, and they don't bring in an over abundance of seafood, they may run... More

Had a nice dinner at the Stillwater. Food was very good but we were disappointed with smaller portions. The service was attentive and friendly even though we had what we assumed to be a new server who was not sure of the menu.

For years the folks in Whitefish have been hoping for a really good seafood restaurant in their midst. After several visits to the Stillwater Fish House I do believe their boat has arrived!! We have been to this restaurant three times this year and on our last visit, two nights ago, we had our best experience, both in the quality... More
