Food was pretty good. Ham edgers were tasty & lemon brick chicken was very good. All French fries were soggy & cool.

Great first visit!
We loved Stillwater! Good band too but way way too loud as was evidenced by most of the people were outside. Of course it could have been the great weather! For us folks though, the music is really really loud. Could not have a conversation so we moved outside.
Great ambiance, food and service. Will go back for sure....but sit outside.

Our serve did a great job; she handled 3-4 separate checks. She attentive, friendly, and answered all of our dumb questions. I drove to Dana Point from Arizona to hear Jim Summers and Friends. I had a great time and will be back the next time I visit.

Fun Place For Music and Dancing
This was my first time at Stillwater. My friends and I had a very fun time! I made reservations and we got a cozy booth in the corner with a good view of the stage. The service was good and so were the appetizers. The band that night was Jerry Curl and they played awesome music from Michael Jackson, Prince, Police etc. We had a lot of fun dancing. Just wish they had a bigger dance floor because it got really crowded. Will definately come back for some good music and dancing!

Everyone was happy with their selection for brunch and pleased with the champagne and our attentive server. The outdoor seating is very invitng with umbrellas for shade when needed. I also thought the price was excellent considering the quaility of the food and the ambience. Fast becoming one of our favorites. Rm

High Energy Fun
If you like good food, GREAT service, knowledgeable staff and entertainment, this is a great restaurant and bar. I will return.
We went to hear the band. Our waiter, David, was the best!!!! Food was delicious. The entertainment was great. However, if you were to go for just a meal during the entertainment time, it can get quite hectic with people scrambling to the dance area. (and I would choose to eat on the patio instead).

Kick the Summer off!
The band D.C. Babylon and the hanging Gardens band were the best I have ever seen. My girlfriends and I danced the whole night. Everyone was having a great time and the crowd were all very nice. The next time you have a party or event Book this Band!

DC Babylon & the Hanging Gardens
I was at your restaurant on Friday when DC Babylon & the Hanging Gardens played. They were great, the music was good, it got everybody on their feet dancing - wonderful! It is what we need here on a Friday night to relax with the great music and have fun. DC Babylon & the Hanging Gardens really made it happen for all the patrons that night. Stillwater should think of having the DC Babylon & the Hanging Gardens on a regular rotation.

StillWater Exceeds Expectations
For a first date, we had a great time at StillWater. The music was exceptional and we delighted in watching so many people have fun. The ambiance was just fine, service good, drinks good, and the food was delicious. Can't wait to go back!

Fun place to hang out
We came to hear Jim Summers and Friends (check it out if you can, great collection of neighborhood talent), enjoy happy hour and snacks... with cool Dana Point breezes blowing... lovely evening.

Good food, concert, and fun!
We went to Still Water to hear Jumping Jack Flash. What a great venue for this! It's small, friendly, with room for dancing, and a great, energetic crowd. We didn't have expectations about the food, but we were very pleased with the ribs and the amazing chocolate dessert - and the prices were quite reasonable. Our server couldn't have been better. The servers have a lot to contend with, trying to weave in and out of those standing to hear the concert, but he was attentive and always friendly. They have an outdoor bar area that was full and perfect for a warm evening. All in all, this was a great evening!

Good Service and good prices.
Good Service and good prices. The band should come on earlier and no need for an opening act.

Awesome Spirits and Sounds!
I've been here twice and love it! I came with a large group to hear
great music, but really enjoyed my meal as well. I ordered the flatbread pizza and it was great. My friend ordered the chicken and loved it. My husband ordered it last time and loved it too. Enjoyed the retro feel,. Both visits I found the staff to be very friendly.
Happy hour is great too! I plan on returning soon.

Great Food - Great Music
We had decided to go to Stillwater for dinner and drinks. We enjoyed everything we ordered. The pizza was fantastic. They have their own pizza oven. We will recommend Stillwater to our friends.

This was my first time visiting Stillwater. My friends band, Short Note, was playing there, so I made reservations for my wife and I in anticipation of a packed house. Turned out I was right on! Food was good and Lindsey, our server was amazing!! Totally recommend Stillwater for and good time with live music.

What a perfect place for enjoying a Sunday afternoon! Reserve a table inside in order to watch the band which typically starts playing at 4pm. Great menu with choices for all. The Brussels sprouts are delicious and a must! Excellent service provided by staff who seem to really enjoy their job. Outdoor patio has nice energy with lots of seating and a cozy fireplace.

This is the fourth time I've dined (and danced) at StillWater Spirits & Sounds. The food is prepared fresh and always good. Must eat the brussels sprouts (even if you don't like to eat them). The way they are prepared are heavenly. Grilled salmon was outstanding as well. Haven't had a bad meal (or drink) here. Sunday Funday is great as the band (varies each week) begins around 4 or 4:30. Casual and comfortable. Best GM in Dana Point too!

I enjoyed the dinner but my friend was bothered by the noise level which was only made worse with the band starting 15 minutes early.

Stillwater Dana Point
Third visit now this year and took our friends to see Jennifer Keith Quintet perform (jazz). We arrived at 7 for dinner which was excellent. Service was great and the band performed to their normal high standards. This is a very cool location and I would recommend it.
