We eat here every time we come to Stillwater. Enjoy the meaty sandwiches, tasty cheese soup with popcorn! The salad bar is always fresh. Wait staff friendly and accommodating.

The food was really tasty and hot. Will definitely go back! We had the French Onion soup, burgers, and duck wonton appetizer. Service was fast and accurate, good came quite fast.

A local favorite and simple bar. They have good bar food, and they keep it simple. Nothing overly fancy. Prices are reasonable. This is a good late night bar/weekend night bar in Stillwater. Always a good time to be had here!

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon for a couple of Reuben sandwiches and Tap Surlys. Very good, casual atmosphere marred only by insipid radio pop music. Three levels of dining, varied menu items.

Food tasted good, service was outstanding. It was a little loud but then again it is a bar. Wonderful atmosphere.
