Great place for lunch

Had lunch with friends while in Stillwater. The food was delicious. The service was fast and friendly. We ate on the patio on a beautiful day.

Cute retro atmosphere. Don't let that fool you...it was seriously the best burger I have ever had. And they also specialize in homemade malts and shakes so we tried one and it was amazing as well. Both the host and our waitress were awesome..do not pass up a chance to try this little gem!

This place is popular and stands out to be so with its malts and ice-creams. They have a seating indoors and outdoors, also you can grab a malt and ice-cream from the counter outside. There was a huge cue for people waiting to grab one of them. Good flavours and very well presented. The wait staff was very good. A... More

Great little place with an outside seating area. The waitress was friendly and service was quick. The food was pretty darn good and it didn't cost an arm and a leg.

Stillwater is quaint so you should eat in a quaint little malt shop like Leo's. The sandwiches were fantastic - of special note is the pulled pork which is made with a Mr. Pibb BBQ sauce that was surprisingly delicious. We had 2 different malts - both were perfect. Just all around a great meal - would stop here again.

Leo's is an old fashioned burger and malt joint. It has a 1950's motif and it has kind of a "Route 66" feel to it. Lots of vintage signs on the wall, older music, etc. In the summer, they are absolutely jammed with tourists from the Twin Cities. They have a window outside for takeout ice cream. Leo's is 60...

Stillwater has to be one of my favorite cities in this fine state. Whenever I get the chance to travel to Stillwater I always have to stop at Leo's to get my nostalgic fix!! This fine establishment takes you back in time to the 1950's era, with the decor, food, & music it sets the mood. The staff is upbeat,... More

Went in for the Best Burger in the Valley contest....very tasty...wish my server would've listened when I asked for my hot fudge shake to come with my burger but she didn't so it was almost gone and I was almost full when my burger arrived! Oh well, can't have it all I guess! Enjoy!!

A fun place with a menu that fits the vibe of this 50s style shop. We are boomers & it was fun to hear the "old" music -- The burgers looked tasty and there were lots of options but we opted for lighter choices -- a hot dog basket, grilled cheese and a salad. Also thought it was really great... More

We went on a Saturday night, 4 adults, 3 kids. We waited 15 minutes but it was well worth it! Great burgers (though admittedly I'm vegetarian most of the time), waffle fries and malts. Very good atmosphere for families as it's loud enough that our kids didn't disturb the peace. I had he black and blue with sautéed onions and... More
