Brine's used to be famous for their Bloody Mary drinks, and I have brought many out-of-town visitors to show off the "Best Bloody Mary's in town." We were pretty excited to celebrate Sunday afternoon with a great Bloody Mary. Our drink glasses were rimmed with...More

I cannot speak on the food/drinks because I never got a chance to get any. This place (security staff and their followers) showed complete disrespect towards my friends. We went in to grab some food and drinks and two of my friends were singled and...More

A local favorite and simple bar. They have good bar food, and they keep it simple. Nothing overly fancy. Prices are reasonable. This is a good late night bar/weekend night bar in Stillwater. Always a good time to be had here!

Stopped in this bar for one last order of cheese curds before flying home to Virginia. Bartender was friendly and the food was good. Stillwater had a lot to offer.
