Nicolette was a great server. She was attentive and got everything right without being annoying or intrusive.
Steak tips are great. The ribs are very spicy. Food is overall very good. Enjoy an occasional meal here on special occasions.
Not worth it for the inflated prices. Nothing special about the food, and the idea that a simple dinner for two with only a glass of wine between us would add up to $81? In Lansing? No thanks. It was a $30 experience,
First time here.
Great experience, food was delicious. Thanks to our server Alisha. Will be back. The Anniversary couple.
We chose Stillwater in Okemos because we like the Brighton location and had tickets for Wharton Center, so this put us 10 minutes away. We allowed an hour and a half for dinner and needed every minute - service was very slow! Food was delicious. We sat outside because it was quieter, however the patio furniture was quite uncomfortable.
Awesome menu, great service and great atmosphere
Food was average; not worth prices charged. Service was a bit awkward and at or below average given there were almost no diners at 6:30 on a Sunday.
Service was excellent but our food was undercooked
The meal and service was excellent. Highly recommend them.
One of my favorite places in the Okemos and East Lansing area.
The service was excellent. We really liked our waitress. The cajun tenderloin tips were good. The spicy calamari was good, but could have been warmer.
Wrong food was brought, had to ask for water repeatedly, order s time that didn’t show. Table. Ext to us was a loud group of 10 and we faced the kitchen.
I went for Mother's Day brunch and ordered the chicken and waffles. The hash browns that came with the meal were burned and my son's hash browns were also burned. The chicken and waffles itself were good.
I really like this place, except for the food. We have been there twice, once for Easter and again for Mother’s Day. The feel of this place is nice, upscale enough but casual comfortable. The staff is great, and our server Miranda was terrific. The designer cocktails are pricey but interesting and tasty.
But it’s a restaurant so the food must deliver. It doesn’t. It’s too bland and the portions too small. We have ordered from the menu and the special occasion offerings and it just doesn’t make the grade. They advertise that there is a chef, but no good chef would serve that food. It feels more like short-order quality, think Big Boy or Bob Evans. No offense to either, just trying to make an understandable comparison.
I hope Stillwater can get it together. They have a lot of good parts in place and it would be a shame to squander them.
The food and the service at Stillwater were both top notch. I always enjoy din ing there.
Salad missed from order, felt rushed, brought bill before we were done eating, never asked if we wanted dessert, food bland
Excellent service, everyone enjoyed their meals (7 of us). Waitstaff was attentive. Would definitely dine there again.
I came here after my college graduation and was not overly impressed. I wanted a formal dining experience with upscale cuisine and would have been alright with the food's prices had their quality been up to their cost. I had coconut shrimp and the shrimp seemed to be overcooked and I was not a big fan of the sauce that accompanied it. I did like the atmosphere though, so there is hope for the future.
Really enjoyed utilizing the tablet menus - how fun!
Great for Lunch
Favorite spot for a business lunch with our MI field team!!
Loved this place
1st time here, Salmon was AMAZING!!!
Service was on thier game!
We had a great experience. The food, service and atmosphere were all way above average! I recommend trying this restaurant.
Our server on Friday night was amazing! Great service!
This was the first time at Stillwater Grill and I was very happy with the service, food and environment! I will certainly recommend this restaurant to friends and family! Thank you Stillwater Grill!!
The waitstaff were great. Very engaging. Great food selection.
Ordered the Ribeye, rare and was disappointed that it came out what I would call medium and was overly fatty. Have better places to spend $100 for a meal.
Food was very nice. We thought the place expensive compared to other restaurants with similar menus. Service was good.
Very crowded and noisy. Took a long time to get our food but it was very good once it finally arrived. We did have a reservation
Recently, there seems to have been a great amount of turnover in staff which makes me wonder about management and their ability to maintain employees. Stillwater used to offer coupons but no longer does so, which is disappointing. Their waitstaff could also be more attentive at the bar. This is a local place that is close to home, which makes it easy to frequent, so overall it is acceptable. They are busy all the time, however, they could be a little more generous with their serving sizes.
Went for Dinner, good food, nice atmosphere, good service.
Fried Calamari was good, but not exceptional. The NY Strip Steak was cooked as ordered, but there was nothing special about it. For the price, I think you should get something more than just a plain piece of grilled meat with some ordinary french fries. The desserts were very good and large. Service was very friendly, but a bit slow.
My dinner partner had the scallops and coconut shrimp and she said it was excellent. I had the prime rib and was disappointed. I had prime rib there previously and it was excellent.
This restaurant was good until the main course. We ordered fish and shrimp. Over done and no flavor. The manager and waitress was very nice and tried to correct problem. Presentation of food was ok but not what you'd expect for the price. I think they are over priced for the food they are putting out. Not sure if we'd go back or not. Could of been just a bad night.
Was not happy! Made reservations for 5:45 and yes we were early but we were from out of town and guessed appropriate time, as we're getting seated manager complained behind our backs (but we heard him plain as day) that we were early and that it was a inconvenience! At least we told you we were coming, instead of just showing up and saying party of 7. Didn't matter anyways because there was plenty of open tables. Service was ok, waitress was nice, she knew the menu pretty well. However 3 people got this "Knife Special chicken" and it was awful and way to salty! A few of us got steak and seafood, it was ok... over priced for what you get. I would not recommend eating here, you can go somewhere else way better and I'm sure get way better customer service elsewhere and not get talked about behind your back, also manager never came
Over to table and checked on us! Absolutely pathetic!
Great atmosphere. Service was excellent. Will definitely come back.
While our service was stellar, the food left much to be desired and the price did as well. My husband and I mentioned several times after the meal that for the same price we could have visited an upscale restaurant we usually only visit on special occasions. I ordered the pan seared scallops, which were NOT seared at all, but were overcooked and rubbery. I had to eat them with the leftover dressing from my salad to make the dish palatable.
