The food was delicious - bison, pulled pork, and nacho cheese appetizer. The wait staff was not as attentive for a party of six - granted only two ordered alcoholic beverages and the rest had pop - it seemed like we were delegated to tourist...More

Had lunch here on the deck on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. They have a massive deck. Service was excellent. Ordered the pulled pork sandwich. It was flavorless and fatty. Could not eat it. Coleslaw was very good. When I told the server and the sandwich...More

Pretty basic burger joint. Outside patio was great, as was the service. Not much to write about for food, not too memorable.

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

Large portions doesn't always equate to great flavor, had the lamb burger way too much feta cheese and buger lamb mix was not so good. Nice location and fun gathering spot but, stick to just a regular beer, burger and frys, stay away from the...More

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. Because of the beautiful weather, the patio was full so we sat inside. Sat quite a while before we were acknowledged. Waited a very long time for our lunch and noticed that several groups that came in...More

This is an old, restored building, beautifully done. It's near the St. Croix River, so I guess you'd say there's a view. There are two distinct parts of the building -- the restaurant, which has two levels, and the bar. On the reeeally slow weekday...More

The service was slow and terrible, the trout was not very appetizing, the chili way too spicy. The coffee cocktail was tasteless. As it was not enough there was a sewage smell. Not a place I would recommend or eat at ever again.

We are having our wedding reception at the Lowell on Sept. 26th. The reception ends at 10 pm. We would liketo find a place close by to continue the party. Do you have dancing and a band or DJ? Probably only 10 up to 30 people would be up for it, but we don't want to end our celebration at 10!!! Can you help or suggest somewhere else?

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
