Completely renovated in 2013, StillWater is the ideal place to enjoy delicious food, local entertainment and unique libations in a friendly, customer-centric environment.
Utilizing locally-sourced produce, fish and meats, StillWater offers a tantalizing full-service menu including upscale “comfort” foods and delicious main dishes. In addition, staff mixologists have created distinctive drinks based on the liquors, ingredients and celebrities popular in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.
In keeping with the pre-prohibition theme, the rust-colored I-beams, historic pictures of Dana Point and antique inspired-lighting transport you back to a prohibition-era Speakeasy.
With a full-service kitchen and bar, state-of-the-art sound system, and expert mixologists, StillWater is the perfect setting for an intimate dinner, corporate event or fundraiser for 100+ people!
