we loved this restaurant! the service was wonderful (especially when our six-year-old spilled her lemonade and broke her glass!), and the food was delicious! especially recommend the seafood curry! and the hushpuppies to start were a delicious treat! only left one star off because we would have loved to have eaten in town--but if you don't mind a short drive...

Good restaurant. Food and service good. We sat outside with a great view of the mountains. I had the Vietnamese clam chowder, clam chowder made with coconut milk and sweet potatoes; my wife had the grilled shrimp with a delicious light sauce. We're only here for 10 days, and this is another good find.

A couple miles north of Whitefish sits Stillwater Fish House. It's worth the drive for this upscale seafood restaurant in far northern Montana. We were promptly seated without a reservation and quickly had complimentary hush puppies (shaped like fries) with dipping sauce. Tasty treat to start! Fried oyster appetizer was perfectly breaded and fried crispy. An Asian appetizer special was... More

If you like bad service and mediorce (at best) food, this is the place for you. If not, way to many better options in town. Server was virtually non existant. Appetizer cold and bland (although they did take off the check). Just stay in the downtown area and avoid the drive to this place.

Was searching TA for places to eat in the Columbia Falls, MT area, and ran upon this place (in Whitefish, MT). My wife and I, visiting from Houston, TX, dropped in to the Stillwater Fish House on Tuesday evening, August 16, 2016, after reading good reviews on TA! We were not disappointed! Although we were asked by the hostess whether... More

May want to make sure the seafood/meat appetizers are fully cooked and wait until 6pm when the grill is hot. Our appetizers were undercooked and warm ! We were there a month ago with a large party and everyone was happy

Our waiter was great, even the manager helped clear dirty plates when... More

Well taken care of. Located in a great area with outdoor seating as well as indoor. Live band playing while we were there and it added to... More

I have been here before a couple of times, both very nice. We decided to go again this year with friends for our anniversary. I had forgotten how "live" it is. Our waitress Amy was quite good. She was professional and friendly. I was a bit dissapointed however that our appetizers came out so quickly! I know this should be... More

I had the seafood curry dish and it was awesome! A great mix of spice and perfectly cooked seafood. We also had coconut shrimp that were really really good! The service was also excellent. Highly recommended!
