“Food was good, service was slow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Had to ask the host to fetch our waiter. We sat outside but there seemed to be plenty of staff around. We did happen to get there just before shift change, but still....Even though it was Logjam Days the deck area was overly busy in the mid-afternoon. Appetizer portions were plentiful and tasty. 4 of us enjoyed each of the different things we ordered.

“Awful service and moldy food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

The service was extremely slow. We had to ask for a drink we ordered multiple times before the server remembered to bring it, same thing with a refill on chips to go with the guac. On top of poor service, the burger I ordered was served with a moldy (green) bun. We didn't have to pay for it, but nothing else was offered to comp for the bad service and equally as bad food. The only saving grace is the view...but the view does NOT make up for the rest of their issues. Obviously, we won't be return customers. Save yourself the trouble and go to Charlie's Restaurant and Irish Pub at the Watertown Inn. The view is even better than the Freight House.

“Don't go.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

Sat forever and finally had to go and ask for service. Again took forever to get our food, appetizers finally came, and they were just ok. Then we got our food, I got the skinny chicken and sweet potato fries and so did my daughter in law, both of ours were cold and we had to send them back. Turns out the asst gen. manager was our server, guess no one else wanted to wait on us. She acknowledged how bad the service and the food was, and apologized and took money off our bill. The reduction of the bill was a nice gesture, however it would not make me ever go back there. Drinks in plastic glasses, go someplace else if you are in downtown Stillwater, I know I will the next time.

“Scammed on the 4th of July”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

Went with freinds with the intent to eat and drink the evening away. First round was $60 for drinks and food. After being there for 1 hour and ready to place a 2nd order we were told we had to spend $100 an hour or leave. Asked what it would be to sit at the deck rail and told $25 an hour. Moved to be in commplience then told we still needed to spend $100 to stay. Management finally caved and lets us stay with the promise not to tell anyone. What kind of a joint is this?

“Just Overall Bad!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

If you want just a hamburger and fries, food will be OK..... but this time we ordered the shrimp peel and eat for an appetizer. Have you ever had mushy shrimp?? Tasted like it was leftover from a few days ago. Horrible and no taste. My berry salad was good except they dumped a lot of oil over it. Supposed to be a vinaigrette of some sort but it had no taste...it was just an oily mess and ruined the salad. My husband had the "Pigs gone Wild" sandwich which he said was soggy, bland with no seasoning. The only positive was the staff.... friendly and nice and the weather was perfect. We won't be back though unfortunately.
