Charlie’s Restaurant

We’re a little bit biased, but we think Charlie’s Restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Stillwater.  Charlie’s Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Our menu serves up delicious American Cuisine, accompanied by an award-winning wine list, and the elegant river views provide an exceptional dining experience you won’t soon forget. During the summer, the experience gets even better with our outside dining patio overlooking the historic St. Croix River and Stillwater Lift Bridge.

Charlie’s Pub

Charlie’s Irish Pub is named after the iconic saloon owned by Carlie Lustig, right here at the site of the Waterstreet Inn hotel. The original building that housed the saloon was built in 1890. Inside, it’s beautifully decorated in Victorian style with a full bar and offers a delicious range of imported and domestic beers, along with a wonderful pub-food style menu.

Today, Charlie’s Pub is the perfect gathering place for everyone in Stillwater, MN.  There is live music at the Pub every Friday and Saturday night, and it opens up on the patio of the hotel in front of the St. Croix River, which just so happens to offer exceptional views of the Stillwater Lift Bridge.
