I’m writings this from ER with my family. We ate at the Stillwater Tavern on Beach Drive in downtown ST. Petersburg last night. I had fish and chips which wasn’t bad. The side of coleslaw awful though. My husband had the hooker steak. After one...bite he refused to eat it. The manager was gracious and took it off the bill. My son had a burger which was raw. He didn’t complain and tried to eat it while my husband shared my sons fries. Within an hour of returning home, we became violently ill. Beware!!!!!More

Stillwaters Tavern — I didn’t expect to drop in for a quick bite to eat and find a burger so amazingly full of flavor. When my server asked if I would need any mustard or Mayo on the side, I gave my typical response “mustard.”...After seeing and cutting into the burger. I knew immediately I was trying it “as-is”, and I told here when she came back that I couldn’t insult this burger with mustard! Shirt rib, chuck & brisket ground for the burger with sharp cheddar, caramelized onions, lettuce & tomato on a brioche bun cooked to order (Medium for burgers for me) combined for a flavor excellence that — Needed. Nothing. Else. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️😎More

We friend and I were seated by a young host how was personable. We were initially disappointed when we learned he was not out waiter, However our waitress turned out to be just as warm and friendly. Super staff, We dined outside and each had...a different variety of sausage link. We shared the artichoke dip app. Everything was delicious and freshly prepared.More

We were visiting our kids in St Pete Fl and they suggested this brewery. While there we had lunch. The food was not very good as the grand kids did not touch there meal and our daughter and son in law did not finish there...meals. My wife did not finish her meal either. I ordered the cheese steak French dip and it was not what I expected. The sandwich was cut in half and one half had a load of mushrooms with one slice of meat. The other half had some meat with no mushrooms. I did not finish my meal either. I would not recommend this restaurant.More

Nice Wines at a Tavern After walking down to the St. Petersburg Yacht Club, past South Straub Park, I spied Stillwater’s Tavern, across Beach Drive, so I crossed over, to explore their wine list. It was still early, and on a beautiful March morning, so...I had my choice of sidewalk tables. I had the short wine list, quickly, and found some interesting candidates. I started with the Matanzas Creek Sonoma Chardonnay, and relaxed, watching shoppers go past. I decided that it was now time to move onto a red, and one entry caught my eye: the Kuleto Frog Prince Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Now, we are in San Francisco dozens of times a year for wife’s board meetings (she was in St Petersburg for similar), and I know the Kuleto family, from the restaurants that they own, run, or are a part of. I had no idea that they were into wine making, but that does make sense. This was going to be a new experience for me. Not a bad wine, in the least, and I will need to look for this one, when back home. Stillwater’s was starting to get quite busy, as the lunch crowd filtered in, so I launched out for my hotel, just a few blocks up Beach Dr. Very nice, very good service, but getting a bit rushed near the end of my visit, with some interesting wines. I will return!More

I had the Grilled salmon salad: marinated wood grilled salmon, mixed greens, cucumber, feta, quinoa, heirloom tomatoes, croutons, egg, kalamata olives, Greek vinaigrette. My wife had the Miso Honey Salmon: roasted acorn squash, ancient grains pilaf, fried kale, carrot miso vinaigrette. The food was prepared...perfectly. Our server was Abby J. and she was awesome. Abby made our dining experience very pleasurable. They have a daily Happy Hour from open until 7:00 pm. Highly recommend.More
