A few years ago we decided to celebrate our anniversaries by heading out to investigate smaller Texas towns. This year we chose Jefferson and stayed at a sweet B&B (White Oak Manor). I investigated restaurants for our special dinner and was intrigued by Stillwater Inn; we were happy to hear our host seconded our choice.
Driving up to the Inn, we were impressed to find a well-tended house with a fence - I'm a sucker for white picket fences! Inside was beautifully appointed and subtly let diners understand that you could be comfortably dressed but this was a well-mannered dining establishment. We were shown to a room with only 4 tables and many windows - perfect! (There were many more tables in rooms throughout the house.)
My husband opted for the Stillwater salad, which he said was delicious, and I had the flavorful spinach and leek soup. Our entrees were the pecan-crusted trout and shrimp scampi, both accompanied by fresh green beans and mushroom risotto. We also ordered the sweet potatoes and broccoli, not knowing that our dinners came with green beans. Not a big problem - just wish it had been listed with the risotto - but hubby managed to put a big dent in the extra veggies. What's a celebration without dessert? Of course we had to order...the Limoncello for hubby and Concord cake for me - both light, not overly sweet and delicious. In fact, the whole dinner was delicious and nicely presented. We truly felt a little bit pampered and we're very happy to have found such a delightful restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. We even took a photo with the chef...well, the paper mache' one at the entryway!
