Not just a burger joint, Gormans serves a selection of breakfast items, soups, sandwiches and wraps. I stopped in for a breakfast plate at lunch today. Small parking spot was full but there was no wait inside. My guest was pleasantly surprised with the decor and enjoyed looking around. Bathroom was clean and just as cute as the eating area....

Their menu is extensive but breakfast is the best. Lots of locals and those on way to Stillwater and Wisconsin stop here. Even though it's a busy spot in mornings, there always seems to be table available and severs are fast and efficient yet friendly. No matter how hungry you arrive, will leave very happily satisfied with deliciously filled tummy.

We have always enjoyed our visits to Gormans. From the filling food, the great service, and the yummy malts. All were wonderful. They have added an addition, which is nice but I like the original section in a booth.👌

With to much stuff, looks like a hoarder decorated it and smell like a barn. Menu to big. Broke my tooth on bacon that was proubly cooked hours before. And wife's boasted chicken freezer burnt. Should of known better that there was only 2 other people in the restaurant at 500 pm on Wednesday. Oh Ed you are still cluelsss.

Lake Elmo MN history is on display throughout the restaurant and the food is true comfort. We live here and go frequently. They also have a great variety of shakes and malts. Next to breakfast I like the oriental chicken salad.

This is a small family owned restaurant in a small town. They provide good service and absolutely the BEST malts and shakes around. Their french silk malt is still amazing. They make terrific breakfasts but to be honest, the quality of their sandwiches and some entrees has slipped recently. The chicken from time to time has been overcooked, but when... More

This is a family style restaurant. Food has always been very good whether breakfast or lunch and dessert. Prices are very reasonable too. This is kind of like a local family restaurant with tons of pictures on the walls. Very nice atmosphere

Quant little restaurant with history making moments tastefully displayed on the walls to entertain you while you wait for your tantalizingly delicious meal to arrive. It's a bit of old fashioned meals with a twist of regular favorites. Great place for mom & dad to bring the kids or even grandpa & grandma. Conversation abounds in this cute little side... More
