“Long wait but worth it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

They don't take reservations and the evening wait times can be quite long. This place has a real nostalgic feel as it's in a real log cabin. Everything about it harkens back to the 1920's including the extremely small rest rooms and tight seating.
That being said, the food is excellent and the service quite nice. The experience is really worth it and living in the area we go quite often especially on a Sunday evening before it gets too crowded.

“Absolute Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

When we want an enjoyable meeting or to show guests a great place to eat I can think of no other than Phil's. The Greek Godfather is absolutely it.

“Phil's Tara Hideaway Stillwater”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Good food and service in a comfortable atmosphere. There is a great variety of food and beverage. The owner is often mingling with the guests, going from table to table. This restaurant would be comfortable for a family.
