My friends and I met here before an event we were attending at the St. Croix Vineyards...someone else suggested we try it. I was so happy we did - it was in a cute log cabin and I felt like I was up in the Northwoods of Minnesota. Our waitress was fantastic and very helpful at helping my gluten-free friend... More

Tara's is a log cabin that's been around & in the same place for years. It has character & consistently good food. The menu includes American & some Greek entrees. It's usually very busy, so be prepared to wait.

It's a go-to place for something quick. I don't think it takes reservations, and it fills up quickly. The food is good--good, honest food, and lots of it. Tables are close together and, when it's full, which it usually is, it can be really noisy.

This has been our go to place for years on our way to the river. The food is excellent, however, there was a recent price increase of almost double on some of the sandwiches we'd always order. Plus you used to be able to substitute soup for your side and now they charge for this on top of the increased... More

On July 1st, we celebrated our Anniversary with friends at Phil's Tara Hideaway, in Stillwater, Minnesota. My husband and I have driven past this place for years, tucked away off of the new freeway. I wondered why it hadn't been removed during the construction, and now I know why. Phil's Tara Hideaway was recognized as a historic landmark in 2008!... More

Go for Greek, go for freshwater fish, or get the "supper club" steak-- you won't be disappointed. Or sit comfy at the bar for great bar snacks and creative cocktails. It's always busy, lively, and filling.

Great Greek food and beer/wine selection. Get there early or late to get a table, they are very busy.
