We rented a pontoon to cruise the St. Croix river while visiting Stillwater, Minnesota on August 31, 2013. We walked to town afterwards to find a place to eat. We went to Charlie's Restauraunt & Pub. When we got their, we saw maybe 4-6 other people eating. We had a party of 7 and requested a table out on the patio. We made our drink orders and the waitress returned within a reasonable amount of time. She took our food orders. An hour went by and we asked her if she could check on our food order. She returned to tell us that they were working on it. We finally recieved our food at the hour and twenty minute mark! We basically asked what the hold up was. She just said sorry. We were charged the full amount for the food, no discount for the wait and no apology from management. Terrible customer service, will not return.

There were maybe six tables occupied with 3 servers to take care of them. Perhaps it wasn't our server's fault, but maybe the kitchen's. It took over a half hour to bring our appetizer, a plate of crackers and cheese. Then at least another half hour to bring a hamburger and fries, and a steak salad. Nothing here required extensive cooking or preparation.
On the good side though is the outdoor view from the deck. The chocolate-raspberry-Guiness cake is hands down the best dessert I've ever eaten. The food is quite good, so if you don't mind waiting over an hour for your entree, then this is the place to eat in Stillwater.

My husband, 3 year old daughter and I attempted to dine on the deck at Charlie's Restaurant & Pub. A sign prompted us to sit ourselves as we did. We sat between two tables that were already being served on. We did not receive menus, eye contact, nothing... for 20 min. I finally went and approached a server and said the lady that was suppose to serve us was being let go early. Is that an excuse to ignore a table? At that time we all got up and left and I went to speak with a manager inside. They did absolutely nothing to make our dining experience better. I will NEVER go their again. Especially now that I have told many others about this place, they have had similar experiences.

Sitting on the patio, sipping whatever we drink and having a little dinner is a really nice thing to do. Winter is inside the Irish Pub, and that is nice too. Good music on the weekends, too.
