We last visited Jefferson and the Stillwater Inn 20 years ago or more and decided we were long overdue for another visit. We remembered how wonderful the food and service were then and hoped for a repeat - we were not disappointed. In fact we had dinner at Stillwater Inn both nights we spent in Jefferson. The first night we... More

This is a very popular restaurant and reservations are definitely needed especially for special events. The main negative is it is very pricy. A salmon entrée with vegetables is $26. The menu is extensive. Nice atmosphere.

There is simply no better classic fine dining between the Mississippi River and Dallas than Bill and Sharon's Stillwater Inn.

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,... More

We went to Stillwater Inn for dinner to celebrate my mom's birthday during a little road trip from Dallas to Jefferson. Someone had mentioned that the food was comparable to The French Room in Dallas. My mom and step-dad have gone there quite often and have traveled to many locales in the USA and all over the world and love... More

Thank you for celebrating your mother's birthday with us. It is obvious that you both came to enjoy yourselves, and I am happy your experience was such a positive one. The French Room association comes from the 2 year " tour of duty" at the French Room in Dallas, before we loaded up the buckboard and headed East, in 1983.... More

Whether we have an early or a late reservation, the service and good are impeccable. We always make our reservation at Stillwater before our B&B reservation because it is a highlight of our visit to Jefferson. The limoncello dessert is fab! Order it early to be directly get one.

My husband and I had our honeymoon dinner at this exquisite restaurant. Very pleasant atmosphere, wonderful food, and the staff was very nice. A little pricey, but worth it!
