My wife and I took a friend to Stillwater for a seafood diner. We had the oysters, scallops and trout along with the Sweet Thai Calamari for a starter. The Calamari was tender and the Thai sauce had a nice kick to it. All three of us had great comments about our diners. My Trout was cook perfectly and melted... More

Hubby and I went for our 32nd anniversary dinner. Server was great in every dimension. We had a bottle of wine, appetizer and lobster from the grilled menu and seared scallops on soba noodles. Hubby said it might have been the best prepped lobster he'd ever had. Ditto on my scallops. Great food, great service, reasonable prices...a bit loud, but... More

My friend and I ordered salmon for dinner. It was very beautifully and skillfully prepared and was among the best salmon dinners I have ever eaten! The fish was extremely fresh and grilled to perfection. Hope I can return there one day soon.

We just flew in from California and came here for dinner. Daynna our waitress, set us up with great wine and appetizers along with amazing seafood curry. Daynna was on top of it. The food was so good and the atmosphere was magically beautiful! I love this place and will go back next time i am in town. Thank you... More

Having just returned the previous week from a trip through Maine, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia (can we say I had plenty of Lobster and other seafood), I am pleased to say the Butterfish, Chowder and appetizers at Stillwater were as good or better than any meal I had on my prior trip.

Food is not anything to write home about and service is rarely good. Been multiple times to give it a fair shake and always leave with the same perspective. If you want good fish - go to the golf course or the lake!

While I do thankyou for visiting us we would've loved to hear about any issues that you were having at the time of your reservation so that we may have tried to rectify any and all issues. I find that there were serious service issues hard to remedy since you gave us so little to work on. Our apologies that... More

We had a very nice dining experience at Stillwater. All items on the menu looked appealing. It is a quiet place inside and the service was great. All of us enjoyed our different seafood choices very much, but I thought it was pricey for the atmosphere of the place.

Was recommended by our daughter for our 33rd Wedding Anniversary. A tie and dress don't fit here and don't mention during the reservation that it is a special occasion as they won't recognize it anyway! I had a piece of pizza with my wife in my garage while working earlier in the day and the atmosphere at the fish house... More

We apologize for the noise level that evening in which you came although it is really difficult to make people be quiet when the place is packed and people are having a great time. We never tell anyone that this is a suit and tie environment it is Montana, and our goal is delicious fresh fish, unique and creative dishes... More

Don't let the outside negatively influence your decision to dine here. The food was delicious, and they have an outstanding wine list! Our table had halibut, tuna, salmon and butterfish. All were delicious. The service was top notch too.

Stillwater is a few minutes outside of town. When we drove up we noticed the parking lot was full. Good sign. Once we got inside we noticed the noise level - not good. Here's one indication - I saw a boy, roughly 10 years old, walking across the restaurant with his hands covering his ears. Lots of hard surfaces, including... More

We have quieted our place numerous times with sound boards and such, Although if the dining room is packed and there are large parties there is a tendency for the tables to get quite loud especially once the wine is flowing. Our apologies that you though it was too loud. Other than the noise it sounded like you enjoyed your... More
