Our second trip to Stillwater Inn ( the first was 16 years ago!) and nothing has changed. Still excellent. Quality and variety of the menu here rivals anything we have found in Dallas/Fort Worth for a better price. Service was good despite the busy Valentines...More

Thank you for returning to the Stillwater Inn, and taking the time to report on your dining experience. Valentine's Day always tests a restaurant's capacity to meet customer expectations. I'm glad your dinner was as good as you remembered. Bill Stewart Chef/Owner

The Stillwater Inn is the best restaurant we have eaten in for some time and probably the best in east Texas (we haven't tried them all, so can't claim that for sure). The food style leans towards Louisiana with classic French influences (sauces, for example),...More

This restaurant is a beautiful historic house, and our waitress was very gracious and friendly! The only downside was the long wait for our food to arrive, but it was worth the wait! The food is great and a nice unexpected luxury in Jefferson.More

Our meal was slow coming out but certainly worth the wait. I had the pork tenderloin which was cooked to perfection in a terrific cream based sauce. My wife enjoyed the pecan encrusted trout. Reasonably priced for the food, atmosphere and service. Likely your best...More

Thank you for choosing the Stillwater Inn. Sounds as if your overall experience was a good one, but you found the dinner slow to be delivered. Perhaps this accounts for a diminished rating. The pork tenderloin, like all of our dishes, is cooked to order,...More
