A good option

This is a good option when walking the streets of Stillwater and your looking for a good sandwich,wrap,burger and fries or just a beer. The food is good and it has a fun relaxed atmosphere.

This was where we went for our first meal when we arrived to visit my best friend. I really like the environment and the food and beer were fantastic. Service was excellent. I had the walleye sandwich and Linda had a burger. It is just a great environment to set and drink and relax.

This place might not look like it from the outside, but they have the best Cuban Sandwich I've ever had. It's amazing. And they have tots as a side option, which is huge in my book anytime. Their drinks are fair in price and they have a great beer selection.

Fun Decor. Typical bar food - but prepared very well. Lots of sports TV. Wasn't crowded, but we were there mid week. Staff was very friendly.

They were not stingy with the wine by the glass like most places! My disappointment was the fish fry they advertised and I was craving then they fry it in old dark oil! Yuk; I had to send it back and hate when that happens! It's embarrassing....however, Pam, our server handled it very professionally and promptly gave me a menu... More

This place is a good for a fun night out with friends. It's got a dark, divey feel to it but the people are super friendly. Good beer options. Surprisingly good food (I got a cream cheese and cucumber sandwich that was totally unexpected based on the looks of this place). I'll definitely be back when I'm back in the... More

Great place for burgers and local beers! I like that they also have free popcorn and pull tabs. Not a lot of seating but very friendly.

We kept passing a sign for a Mexican place that served Margarita's but when we went inside, it was mostly a restaurant with no bar to sit at. We stopped in Mad Capper which was close by. Typical old school bar with high ceilings and plenty of items on the walls to catch your interest. We ordered a couple margarita's... More

This eatery and saloon was good, but I wish we had gone to one of the rooftop, patio or riverside restaurants instead. We stopped here because we passed it and we were hungry. The menu had some interesting choices like cream cheese and olive sandwiches. That turned out to be pretty good. The bar was dark and full of odd... More

Huge nachos and lots of beer. The hubby and I stopped in on a recommendation from two other bartenders at different establishments. The nachos were delicious and there were so many we couldn't finish them! Staff was curteous. Atmosphere was bar. They had a "husband daycare" which we thought was amusing. Fun place! Check it out!
