On the shore of the St. Croix, the Dock Cafe looks upriver to the historic Stillwater Lift Bridge and downriver to the new St. Croix Crossing Bridge. Thirty minutes from the Twin Cities, it lies on the edge of picturesque downtown Stillwater. The patio, bar and dining rooms provide unrivaled views as well as the area's most complete menu choices.

The warm contemporary architecture of the Dock Cafe is comfortable and inviting. During the summer months, activity centers around the large brick patio with trees and beautiful flowers. Wide "walls of glass" offer panoramic views to those dining inside. During the cooler weather, our fireplaces draw diner's attention inward. A focal point of the bar areas is a 4 x 24 topographic survey map of the St. Croix River.

Our dining rooms are available for private parties November through April. These rooms make ideal spots for holiday parties, grooms dinners and small weddings and retirement dinners. The Dock Café is a truly unique, one-of-a-kind dining experience.
