Made reservations for four and drove up the 10 mile dirt road wondering what to expect. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming as if we were old friends and the owners were fun to talk to. The food was amazing with more than adequate portions...and the homemade desserts were sooooo good! We highly recommend the experience.More

Beautiful views of reservoir and nice atmosphere inside but expensive food with tiny portions. We paid $7.00 for a "bowl" of soup, that was less than than 8 oz and tasted bland. $12.00 for "crabcakes" that had popcorn shrimp in them. But the tip of...the iceberg was being charged an additional $2.50 for a REFILL on an iced tea. Really??More

Driving the long lonesome back roads between Inlet and Lowville, we ran into a dead end on the Stillwater Reservoir, with this restaurant sitting by the boat launch. What to expect from a place tucked away so far from the noise and bustle of Old...Forge? Well, the best lasagna I've ever eaten, for one thing. And after boxing up its remains - plenty large portion, enough to reheat for another meal - an out-of-this-world dessert. I opted for Kahlua chocolate mousse on dark chocolate cake. It was, as my buddy described, "pure evil" tempting in looks and taste. Wow. And the folks who served were friendly and helpful in getting us back on the road in the right direction.More

You won't be disappointed with Stillwater Hotel. Marian is the hostess with the mostest who can recommend wine as well as a big city sommilier. Joe's prime rib is to die for, and the apple crisp is outstanding.

Spent a long Labor Day weekend at the Stillwater Hotel with my husband, our 3 children and Mom and Dad. Rented the cottage, plenty of room for the 7 of us. Ate breakfast and dinner at the restaurant every night. The filet was great, scallops...and shrimp scampi, and probably the best French onion soup I've ever eaten. The food is great, and people are even better. Marian and Joe treated us like family and our waitress, Pamme, was awesome. Wonderful, laid back experience in a beautiful setting! Beautiful hiking, kayaking (flat water and white water) and fishing in area. Oh... and the peanut butter pie.... mmm... we'll be back!More

Start in Eagle Bay and turn off Rte 28 onto the Big Moose Rd... drive a bumpy, rough road for about 10-12 miles ... and then you get to the DIRT road. From there, it's going to be another 20 -30 minutes on a road...that might be okay... or could be total washboard, and chatter your teeth half out of your skull before you get there. WHY, one would wonder, would anyone put themselves through all of that just to get to a restaurant? Because this restaurant is worth the drive! Not only that, you are sitting in a restaurant at the head of the Stillwater Reservoir and, at the very least, you've just found a place you can tell your grand kids about: rough roads, scenic vista and, oh yeah - great food!More

I don’t know but it is the end of April and they are not to central Pennsylvania yet. I would imagine at least another month till they get to upstate New York. We were there to snow mobile!
