The food here is always great. As well as the service. Only reason they didn't get five stars is the size and cost of a meal. I think the portions are big and the price is a little high. I always feel like I need to split a meal. Wish the would reduce the portion size and cost.

Things have changed at stillwater. I had fish tacos. The were good but not great. They just lacked flavor. My husband had white fish and had the same reaction too bland. They moved to a computer menu. It will take awhile to get used to it.

To start, my family is very hard to accommodate. From an aunt who has to sit in the perfect spot so she "can hear you" to a vegetarian mom with a ton of questions and a dad with bad jokes, going out often ends with a frustrated server and poor experience. I work in the industry, and while I understand... More

This was one of our favorites and we would drive nearly a hour to dine. Something has changed. This is now a corporation restaurant and it has lost in the menu, service and quality. Seafood has been reduced to salmon, white fish, and talapia. Talapia is a low quality fish and at these prices is a sign of a kitchen... More

Best crab cakes I've ever had. Salads good. Bread excellent. We had a booth with a view. Really good waitress. Great evening. Will absolutely go back.

The food tastes good. But it leans towards tasting like Applebee's a little. Everything I've ever ordered tastes good. But nothing has ever been exceptional. The atmosphere is fine. It has a very high ceiling and is open to the kitchen. It can be noisy. But it's still nice. The staff is well trained and experienced. You have to insist... More

My wife and I understood it was the 4th of July, however we were disappointed to to see the level of service had declined from so many positive experiences from previous visits. They also seemed to be not as accommodating in making changes to their entrees when requesting healthier options or alternatives, especially with vegetable options.

Went in on Memorial Day and found out that they have free meals for veterans then. What a generous act by the owners. Good and service is always excellent here. Many people drive from other towns because they know it's a quality restaurant.

My wife and I went to the Stillwater Grill for the first time on our 25th anniversary. They had a good selection of cocktails and a so-so wine list but the menu had all kinds of food choices. We had drinks and a great appetizer then we both ordered the prime rib with a glass of wine. They have a... More
