A few years ago we decided to celebrate our anniversaries by heading out to investigate smaller Texas towns. This year we chose Jefferson and stayed at a sweet B&B (White Oak Manor). I investigated restaurants for our special dinner and was intrigued by Stillwater Inn; we were happy to hear our host seconded our choice. Driving up to the Inn,... More

We went to Stillwater Inn for dinner to celebrate my mom's birthday during a little road trip from Dallas to Jefferson. Someone had mentioned that the food was comparable to The French Room in Dallas. My mom and step-dad have gone there quite often and have traveled to many locales in the USA and all over the world and love... More

Atmosphere is opulent yet soothing. Food is amazing. Steak cuts with a fork! Best risotto I have ever had.

Whether we have an early or a late reservation, the service and good are impeccable. We always make our reservation at Stillwater before our B&B reservation because it is a highlight of our visit to Jefferson. The limoncello dessert is fab! Order it early to be directly get one.

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.
