Food was good. May have done appetizer instead of a meal. Scenery was nice but food was about a 6. Service good. Got a free. Drink for my birthday.

The menu was simplified and reduced since our last visit here. Still plenty of good options, and we really enjoyed being near the St. Croix. Staff was friendly, and efficient, the cheese curds were very good, and the burger was spot on.

Group of friends had dinner in Stillwater. We went to the freight house because you can see the river from the patio. Bad choice! One person in our group had bad, under cooked food. He told the server, server said sorry and walked away. Never...More

The old freight house harks back to another era and time when Stillwater was a logging town. The railroad served its purpose for bringing immigrants to this new land, and support the logging industry. Now Stillwater is a destination for an afternoon of antiquing and...More

PD Pappys would be perfect. They have a live band and a nice mix of all ages. You could easily walk there from the Lowell Inn
