“Rockin' on the River With Good, Simple Food”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

PD Pappy's is right on the St Croix River, just a few blocks north of the lift bridge in downtown Stillwater. It's a roadhouse-bar-nightclub-burger-sandwich place. There is indoor seating (however, the doors to the outside are often open, so there's not always air conditioning inside) and there is a large deck to one side with outdoor seating. The other side of the structure has outdoor standing tables with umbrellas (usually no chairs) for when the music is rockin'. The place can be quite crowded when the bands are playing - people come via motorcycles, vehicles, and boats. I've seen many age groups at Pappy's - families during the day, business folks during the day, and typically a rockin' crowd in the evenings. The menu consists of a few salad choices, several sandwiches and burger selections, fries, and a lot of appetizers. The food has always been fresh, reasonably priced, and simple. There are often good daily meal specials, so be sure to ask. Service is typically efficient and friendly. There's a parking lot next to the restaurant or on-street parking in downtown Stillwater. Pappy's is often closed on Mondays, and it's only open during the summer months.

“Best "road house" with an awesome view in the Twin Cities.”
Reviewed March 20, 2009

Fun rocking bar/restaurant with free live music and a large but friendly crowd that is not full of young kids. This place is large and is right on the St. Croix River. The food is American basic restaurant/bar food but it is good and they often have great food specials. This place is closed for the winter so my summer does not start until P.D.Pappy's opens for the summer season. I love this place. I compare this place to the Florabama on the Alabama/Florida border or the Hog's Breath Saloon in Key West, Florida.
