Stillhouse Bar & Grill Boasts Serious Pub Grub in a Fun Atmosphere

Imagine a bar and grill tame enough for a business lunch, cozy enough for happy hour and rowdy enough to let you cheer uninhibited during the big game. This concept has come to life at the Jameson Group’s latest endeavor Stillhouse Bar & Grill. The former wine bar at 91st and Memorial has become a one-stop location for diners who seek good eats and a cold cocktail, no matter what time of day.

The interior has some signatures of its former wine bar life, but the space is separated into compartments – tall tables and chairs on one side, a stage in one corner where DJs and bands play on the weekends, and a pool table and video games along the opposite side. Televisions cover every wall, even in the lush patio area. Stillhouse is open for lunch at 11am until last call at 2am every day. There are few options for late-night grub around town that you’ll regret less than that last shot of Jager, but Stillhouse’s kitchen churns out great food until 11pm every night.

Stillhouse’s daily specials feature something delicious every week day starting at 2pm. Knock out the Monday blues with $1.50 chili cheese dogs, or do up taco Tuesday right with $.49 soft or crunchy tacos. Wednesdays are for wings, and any of the five flavors are only $.49 each. The end of the week specials get even beefier. Thursday is the most outrageous burger deal in town–two burgers and fries for only $4.99–and Friday features a 10oz ribeye, baked potato and salad for $11.99.

The robust daily specials are matched only by the content of their regular menu. Nothing is over twelve bucks despite containing pricier fare, like Surf & Turf Kabobs ($9.99) and Stuffed Mushrooms ($7.99).

I started off light with the Flatbread ($6.99) on the appetizer menu. The silky hummus was the perfect substrate atop a fluffy pita with a delicately crisp bottom. Briny pitted Kalamata olives were entwined with smoky-sweet shreds of sundried tomato. The chef isn’t shy with the mozzarella cheese, which holds it all together. For an extra $3, I added grilled chicken. Plump strips of delicately flavored chicken strips made the dish heartier. The flatbread is jam-packed with flavor and is plenty for two people, even if it is considered ‘lighter fare.’

Any bar worth its salt has to have a burger and Stillhouse’s signature burger is a knock out. The Buffalo Burger is a mix of ground buffalo and beef. Two slices of gouda cheese create a web of gooey goodness that traps crisp bacon, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato and a spicy buffalo ranch. The bun is sturdy to hold all that goodness in place, but be prepared to open wide for this two-patty behemoth. It’ll take a couple of brewskies to wash this monster down, and Stillhouse has several local beers and favorites on tap. At only $10.99, this burger is the most expensive and most impressive items on the menu.

Stillhouse takes taco Tuesdays very seriously with their pork tacos. On Tuesdays, these bad boys are only forty-nine cents, but any other day you can get three tacos alongside tender cilantro lime rice and crunchy lime slaw for $6.99. The shredded pork is layered with flavor – smoky tomato, hints of cumin, a lenient heat – and is cradled inside a soft corn tortilla. My favorite dish I’ve saved for last, even though it comes from the appetizer menu. We can all appreciate a good jalapeno popper, but Stillhouse’s has some serious pop. Reminiscent of crab rangoons, the Jalapeno Wontons are simple in their majesty. Jalapeno, bacon and cream cheese are captured in a deep-fried pouch of crispy heaven.

Of course, the Stillhouse has a robust collection of beers, wines and booze to wet your whistle. The capable staff makes everyone feel welcome, the food is an outstanding value and the environment is conducive to have just a couple drinks or to party all night.
