Lots of different seafood choices including lobster bisque soup and a large selection of oysters. They also have burgers if seafood isn't your thing. Don't forget to save room for some devils food cake for dessert!

Our son and daughter in law took us there for lunch. I have heard so much about this place I thought it would be great. It was not. The menu was average, over price. Our son had to ask the waitress when our food was coming out. She never had a smile on her face (maybe bad day?) It was... More

Our group of four visited Stella's and had a pleasant meal, but this is a quantity-focused place and not fine dining. The seafood was definitely fresh, but one of the group thought the halibut was overdone. The crab cake appetizer consisted of fine bits of crab (no large pieces like the menu said) and was on the oily side. Oily... More

We had a mix up when we made our reservation. We thought we had requested the Chef's table with special menu but it had not been noted on the reservation. James, the manager, made everything right and then some. He suggested the Steak and Lobster with wine. It was amazing. We had outstanding service and wonderful food. We will certainly... More

We have dined inside during a cool day, but prefer to dine on the roof. Now there is a new apartment building blocking the view to the east which is too bad. I am not a fan of salmon. I check tasting menus for salmon to decide if I am going to dine at the establishment. If it is on... More

Once again, my husband and I had the best seafood and clam chowder we've ever had, including what we experienced in Key West Florida. He had the lobster roll, and it was done perfectly, without an overwhelming amount of mayo like most do. You could actually taste the perfectly cooked lobster. I had the blackened swordfish with carmalized onion, and... More

It seemed to be a deal too good to pass up when Amazon Local sold a $200 lobster bake for $100. The 4 course meal had highs (bisque, muscles and lobster claws) and lows (really bad lobster tail) and mediums (salad, bread and dessert). The service was okay, but just okay. I suppose the two of us got our moneys... More

Stella's has the best sushi...made fresh, to order. And where better to enjoy it than on their rooftop setting on a beautiful warm, sunny, day in the Summer.

Happy Hour Oysters only $1 each. Drinks 2 for 1, how can you go wrong? Some of the best seafood in Minneapolis. Oh ya what about Lobster Sunday where you can get a lobster for $19.95, no side but what the heck.
