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!


Featuring dishes from Chef John Cuevas, our menu offers everything from burgers to steaks and seafood too!   
From Reggae to  Swing to 80′s cover bands; StillWater hosts an eclectic mix of bands to please almost every musical preference. 
Let us host your next event. Our special event offerings are a delicious and convenient way to entertain parties of up to 200 people.
A bar comes down to two things; the people & those that serve them. StillWater is a class act. Damian, Edgar and staff treat all with old school respect… Oh, and the Pizza is outstanding!!!

Meet The Team


Damian Collins – Managing Partner

I am excited to support Dana Point and make a positive difference not only with our customers, but with local businesses and community members. Driven by the desire to provide genuine hospitality for our guests and employees, we offer a setting where people truly care about one another, and show it in everything they do. The high-level of respect and enthusiasm which runs through our entire organization is evident in many ways.

StillWater’s vision is to celebrate the history of Dana Point with innovative artisan cocktails, flavorful cuisine, inspired entertainment, and an atmosphere that takes you back to the beginning.

We thank you for being a part of the celebration.
