Jim's Front of building in early years

Born on the South Hill


 Meister's Bar & Grill in Stillwater, Minnesota is the original Meister's - founded in 1948 by Emmett James "Jim" Meister. Jim's German roots were the initial conceptual inspiration, but over time we've become an iconic community establistment, known for our  unique, vintage decor, great pub food and cold beer! Throughout the decades, Jim's wife Eileen, along with his siblings, children and grandchildren, have kept the legacy in-tact. Although other locations have come and gone, the Stillwater location remains family owned and operated!

The Burgermeister

The Burgermeister was added to the menu in 1975, since becoming a staple and very popular crowd pleaser! The 3rd pound angus beef burger is grilled on a flattop in our open-concept kitchen, placed on a steamed Kaiser bun, and topped with real crumbled bacon bits, melted american cheese and fried or raw onions of your choice!

We're more than just another burger joint! The ambiance is second to none - from shag carpets on the wall to vintage pictures, relics and more. Your time dining with us will always be quite the experience! With welcoming staff and prompt service, you'll enjoy tid bits of Stillwater's history tucked away in our cozy corner.
