I have been here multiple times since there aren't many choices in this town. I sat in a booth and was able to hear everyone at the table without shouting. I ordered the prime rib and green beans. It was a 10oz piece. I was a little disappointed because it had a lot of fat. See the photo below. There... More

Usually stop here on the way home from Lansing. Was surprised at the changes. Didn't like the tablet menu, I was disappointed that they no longer had the combo meals. I used to love having prime rib and another choice. Caesar salad was still good, service was ok. May stop again, but will need to think about it.

Thank Carolyn H

I have given this restaurant at 4 and a half or 5 however our last two visits make us believe that the new owners are not on the same page as the old owners. We have frequented this restaurant often in the past but I think we're not going to give it a rest for a while. I am surprised... More

Prices are too high for me to visit regularly. It is a bit noisy inside this restaurant so having a conversation might be a challenge for some.

We try not to eat huge portions for lunch and this was a great stop because the starters are delicious! We have been here before for steak, which was great. The restaurant is cozy, welcoming with friendly staff that was knowledgeable. Good for special occasions and business meetings or just to have a great meal. Today we had the seared... More

Great Service, Quiet atmosphere all of our dishes were fresh, hot and delicious. We enjoyed our service as well and celebrating a birthday here. Afterwards we walked the tridge and walked downtown Brighton and visited the local shops, always a pleasant walk. If you have children they can play at the Imagination Station and enjoy some ice cream shops as... More

My wife and I ate there with another couple on a Saturday night. Our first visit, but they had been there many times before and were surprised that the place was not at all busy. We learned that there had been a change in ownership. Whatever the new owners have done is apparently not working. Food was decent - Bistro... More

I like the patio in the summer. I can usually get a good glass of wine here. They have good entrees. I normally get fish or salad. It's a good place to meet friends for nicer meal and drink. The pricing is on the higher end. The wait staff has also been good. The inside decor is pleasant.

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.
