In the tough economic times, a romantic out-of-the city gateway with a love one doesn’t have to break the bank. Stillwater offers a variety of unique boutiques and restaurants that would fit any budget.

While in Stillwater check out:

Eskimo Joe’s, a landmark restaurant in Stillwater. Joes opened in 1975 as a college bar, serving cold beer and offering a stage to local musicians to play original music. Ever since then, Joes has grown into a family-friendly restaurant during the day, and one of the most beloved college bars at night. For a true Stillwater experience make sure to check out some of Joes special; however, if you are there for the day, curly cheese fries and a cold beer are some of Joes famous. And on your way out stop by the gift shop to pick up a T-shirt or a mug.

Next stop: Did someone said pizza???…if so… Stillwater is the home of the first pizzeria parlor in Oklahoma- Hideaway Pizza.
Hideaway opened its doors for business in 1957; today Hideway offers 35 different topics and six sauces to choose from. Items to try: garlic bread and fried mushrooms.

If you had enough to eat and want to chill with a nice drink stop by Zannotti’s Wine Bar. Located in the heart of downtown, Zannotti’s offers a chique and classy vibe to the college town. The wine bar has a large selection of wine, mix drinks and imported as well as domestic beer to choose from. And to go with your drinks try their cheese and bread platter.
