This place is right on the river. You can sit and have a drink, while you watch the boats. The food and service was great.

Great views, good food, friendly service. My Wife and Niece really enjoyed the Ceviche, the Cheese Curds were good, and all of our sandwiches were too. Group of 6 had a good time, and really enjoyed the experience with the location topping it all off.

The Freighthouse has had some growing pains in the past few years. Menu changes...slow kitchen....inexperienced staff... With one of the best patios in town, they needed to step up their game. I am happy to say that they have! Don't let the menu fool you....More

We had a Groupon for $30 for this place. I bought it without first researching on TripAdvisor- which was a huge mistake. Before we came we did, & realized it was rated 68 out of 75 in Stillwater. The building is beautiful, so it's a...More

PD Pappys would be perfect. They have a live band and a nice mix of all ages. You could easily walk there from the Lowell Inn
