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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
