“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

There was a bit of a wait when we first arrived (which we expected and it was worth the wait). The staff was super friendly! The atmosphere is comforting and has great energy. Our food was delivered fast and piping hot. Everything was delicious. We were hoping to have room for dessert, but not a chance! We had to go back to the next day for a shake. This is a real gem of Stillwater!

“Go for ice cream only, not meals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

On the positive side, service was quick (restaurant wasn't too busy at the moment) and friendly. The malts and ice cream were really delicious. The tables and booths were clean and the decor was vintage soda/ice cream shop. I wish we'd had dinner elsewhere and just come to Leo's for the dessert. The food was average, fries and chips a bit overdone. There is a children's menu, only unhealthy options (to be expected at a grill/malt place, I know). There's already an unhealthy entree option (mac and cheese, burger, grilled cheese, etc.) and then options for soda to drink and ice cream at the end--I wish they didn't also put another "treat with the children's meal (Oreos).

“Small seating area inside”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

A very quaint looking malt shop - "takes you back in time". Inside seating isn't very plentiful. If you're going with a bunch of people, expect a wait until the 2 bigger tables open up or they can push together smaller tables. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive and the food was good. Typical grill food.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We were touring breweries and wineries in the area and got hungry, so we stopped in for lunch. Small place, but the food is great! Make sure to get a malt. My husband had a burger and said it was very good.
