We eat at Stillwaters every time we come to Fish Creek. The Walleye Sandwich is the Best around. Brian, the Owner is a tallented chef and has great stories to share while you dine. The outdoor seating lets you enjoy the weather and have some "people watching" time.

This is probably the best place to sit on a beautiful day and watch the crowds of people walk by in Fish Creek. To add to the enjoyment try a Chicago dog, a Chili dog, or my ultimate favorite the Chili Cheese dog. The chili and cheese heaped on top of the hot dog bury it so that you have... More

On a Monday night we has the perch basket. We got five pieces of perch, lots of fries, cole slaw and soda for $13.95. The fish was good, but we have a place in Madison that serves better. Fries and slaw were average. Nice outdoor setting right downtown.

Wonderful lunch of fish and fries ! The aroma of the grilled fish got me and my dog salivating. Seating at the table for two wasn't hard to find on the patio, and it was very cool and shady.

Took the little one here for a Frisbee meal (cute idea) and found the food was really pretty good with a lot of options, some very local & unique - I had a walleye Reuben with Cole slaw instead of sauerkraut & it took me back to getting fish fries as a kid and the fried fish and slaw getting...

It is 2016 and this garbage dump doesn't take credit cards. Welcome to the future. Garbage food garbage service and the management is clearly a blast from the past

Just the place to stop in and rest from shopping. The hot dogs alone are worth the trip. Crazy decorations add to the ambiance.

If you're looking for a great dinner place this is it! The fish is so good. Plus you have a wonderful atmosphere. The staff is friendly. We've been there a few times and haven't been disappointed. Would go back again.
