Dined with a party of 10 during Candlelight weekend. Although a busy time, service and food were outstanding!

This food here is remarkable!! The menu had so many choices, but we went for the specials. I had a marvelous fish dish and my wife had the pork loin which was outstanding. The wine list is extensive and pricey. The service was excellent and unhurried, which gave us time to chat with other guests. Highly recommend.

The Stillwater Inn is the best restaurant we have eaten in for some time and probably the best in east Texas (we haven't tried them all, so can't claim that for sure). The food style leans towards Louisiana with classic French influences (sauces, for example), and, although not highly innovative, was creative. The ambiance is fairly elegant, in an old... More

This restaurant is a beautiful historic house, and our waitress was very gracious and friendly! The only downside was the long wait for our food to arrive, but it was worth the wait! The food is great and a nice unexpected luxury in Jefferson.

Thank you for dining with us. I am glad that the overall experience was a positive one. I regret that the wait for your entree was longer than seemed necessary.

Our meal was slow coming out but certainly worth the wait. I had the pork tenderloin which was cooked to perfection in a terrific cream based sauce. My wife enjoyed the pecan encrusted trout. Reasonably priced for the food, atmosphere and service. Likely your best bet for a great meal in Jefferson.

Thank you for choosing the Stillwater Inn. Sounds as if your overall experience was a good one, but you found the dinner slow to be delivered. Perhaps this accounts for a diminished rating. The pork tenderloin, like all of our dishes, is cooked to order, and must "rest" for a few minutes before being presented on the plate. If the... More

The perfect setting for a relaxing, delicious meal. The service was the best and the food was fabulous. I started with the Stillwater Salad, loved the creamy vinaigrette. I ordered the shrimp scampi and requested it be served with angel hair pasta. The lemon garlic butter sauce was to die for!! My husband had the pecan encrusted trout and our... More

Ate here the first time almost 30 years ago when the owners were just a young couple starting out. He a chef and she in marketing. It was excellent then and remains excellent today. We have been back several times over the years and have never been disappointed. Jefferson is a weekend destination getaway and the Stillwater is definitely where... More

We recently had dinner here to celebrate our anniversary. The last time that we were in Jefferson and had dinner here was over twenty years age. We were pleased that it still retains its charm and ambiance. We both chose the fillets and they were delicious. I think this is the nicest restaurant in Jefferson for a special occasion.
