Such a sweet place to visit. We love to eat here in the winter time by the fireplace. The food is great and the setting is lovely and very romantic.

My husband and I had our honeymoon dinner at this exquisite restaurant. Very pleasant atmosphere, wonderful food, and the staff was very nice. A little pricey, but worth it!

Stayed in the Jefferson area for a relaxing anniversary week and had our 37th Anniversary dinner at the Stillwater Inn. The beautiful old converted house was a perfect place for our dinner. Everything we had was delicious and looked as good as it tasted. We both had the Tomato & Smoked Pepper soup. Served piping hot, it had just the... More

After a rainy – dreary drive from Dallas we received a friendly welcome from staff at Stillwater. From the minute we walked in we relaxed and sat down for a wonderful relaxing and delightful dinner. My wife and I shared a most wonderful escargot and then shared the goat cheese salad which was delicious. For entrees we had the special... More

I've sampled salmon from coast to coast in the US and Canada. Chef Bill Stewart served a salmon filet on the evening that we visited. It was absolutely top notch. Chef Bill came out of the kitchen to chat with us after dinner. Very enjoyable time. Bill and his wife are very gracious hosts. I'll be back.

The salad was excellent, the shrimp and crab were cooked to perfection. Loved the crunchy bread. The atmosphere was very romantic. The Stillwater Inn is in a beautiful old home. I loved the front screen door. It is a beautiful "old south" experience. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. It is a little pricey. Diner was $85.00 including tip... More

Years ago, Stillwater Inn came highly recommended by friends in the Dallas area and they did not steer us wrong! When in the area, my husband and I always make a point to make reservations for dinner. Not just great food, but great selections. The wait staff is professional, attentive and knowledgeable. Our food is always cooked to order and... More

The house, Stillwater Salad, was the best house salad I've ever had. The greens were crisp and fresh. The dressing was light and perfectly distributed, and who would have thought lettuce, walnut, garlic and tomato was a perfect bite, but it WAS! Oh, it was! The fresh bread was hot and divine, the crab claws were good, but a bit... More

We never expected to have a true 'dining experience' in a small town like Jefferson, but we certainly did at Stillwater Inn. My wife had lamb chops, and I had one of their specials - grouper in a white wine / pimento reduction. Both were excellent, a ton of flavor and cooked just right. The restaurant was hosting a large... More
