Hubby and I were on our own walking beer tour. We stopped in here to check it out. One of the better places that does not have a view of the water that we enjoyed. Just an old time, down to earth pub! Friendly barmaid.

Lion’s Tavern is a solid option for casual family dining in Stillwater that will have more options for non meat eaters than some of the popular Burger places on Main St. They also have a gorgeous outside patio, on the river but nice set up.
