This restaurant is always a bubble off. With all of the great restaurants in Stillwater, you don't want to eat here. The patio in the summer has a killer view though.

My husband and I went for lunch today and were disappointed. The service was awful...we sat down with menus we had picked up on our way in and waited for more than 5 minutes to even be acknowledged. Mind you, there was only 1 other table occupied, so it wasn't that they were overly busy. Lots of staff just wandering... More

Went here on a Thursday night to try it out since it has changed owners and we had a Groupon. This was one of the worst experiences we have ever had when dining out. The place had a large party in one of its rooms but there was only one other couple in the actual restaurant. We waited over a... More

The freight house has a nice riverside location, with a very large patio for outdoor dinning. Overall, the food is not bad, just your average American food. Its a nice place to come in the summer and sit outside. The service is also average.

We had gone to a few places in town to eat, but this place was fantastic. Well the food at least. The service is not the best, but the food is!

Don't visit unless you have plenty of time to wait and are willing to correct most of your order. On a Sunday they were out of about 1/2 the things we ordered. When the food finally came it was pretty good. Not sure I'd come again.

The Freight House used to be a family favorite many years ago. What a disappointment to be back and have an awful experience. Started with poor service, cold and dry burgers, fries that were too salty and ended with having to wait for such a long time to get our bill. I was a beautiful sunny day and only 2... More

The food here is pretty tasty every time we've visited. The service has been good too. We usually lunch up before shopping for antiques.

Food is mediocre for the price. Service was slow and it was not very busy. So many good restaurants in still water. Go elsewhere.
