Brighton Location


Stillwater Grill was established by Robert Ressler in Brighton, Michigan in June 1997. As a locally owned and operated restaurant, it quickly became a local favorite as one of the area’s largest fine dining restaurants that offered a casual and relaxed atmosphere. Upon retirement, Gessler very selectively chose Mainstreet Ventures’ as the new parent company to further advance the Stillwater brand and to help continue to build strong community relationships. Both Ressler and Mainstreet Ventures’ had a common goal to exceed our guests’ expectations by providing the best quality food and service. The Brighton location officially became a Mainstreet Ventures’ restaurant on March 23, 2016 and Okemos soon followed on April 18, 2016.
The Brighton location was voted best restaurant in Livingston County for 17 years straight since inception.
Continuing the standard set by the Brighton location, a second store was opened in Okemos, Michigan in June 2000. The Okemos Stillwater Grill also quickly became a local favorite gathering spot for nearby Michigan State University fans, students and faculty.
