Great food even though it has been commercialized.

I remember when Eskimo Joe's was just another little beer joint. Then their T-shirts took off and you see those shirts literally EVERYWHERE in the United States and even overseas. Now Eskimo Joe's has more than doubled in size. It is quaint and fun. Best of all, they have great burgers and the... read more

This is the place to go for local color. Concerned it was typical tourist restaurant, but pleasantly surprised. Good food, fun atmosphere, friendly staff. My only issue (and maybe this is true elsewhere, I just haven't noticed) is that the suggested gratuity on the charge card slip is based on pre-tax totals, not the actual total paid. I don't rely...

Eskimo Joe's is a Stillwater favorite. It holds a very special place in my heart. They are known for their cheese fries and fun t-shirts. You must start your meal off with cheese fries--the secret? Ask for sweet pepper bacon, it's out of this world!

We had to wait an hour for tables for our group of 25, but nobody minded. Great service for our big group. One of our first stops when we are in Stillwater. Of course we had cheese fries and Lil' Joes.

Eskimo Joe's still has great burgers and fries and chicken sandwiches! "The Fowl Thing" is the really tasty chicken sandwich that I love! The restaurant is very popular and there can be a wait, but just take the time to explore the shop next door. Every summer when I visit, I have to get my new EJ shirt. Love this... More

A trendy place trying to look old. Food was good, but not great and the drinks were way overpriced. I would still recommend for the experience and the wait staff very good.

We came in as a large group. I understand that it takes some time to get orders in and, I try to give credit where credit is due. Our group got separated side by side and one side got all their food and finished before we got our food. They were giving us some of their appetizers. IF you expect... More

I lived in Oklahoma when I was in college and EVERYONE knew Eskimo Joe's and had the tshirt. I never made it back then, so we made sure to stop by on a recent road trip. The kitchen had just closed when we arrived, but the staff was nice enough to offer us some appetizers, which were very good. The... More
