Go often on Mondays for AYCE crablegs. The staff is awesome and they are on top of things! Never an empty glass or an empty plate. Great place to go to have a great time and great food with family and friends. Bar area is separated by a wall partition. So it is great for family dinners without being in... More

My boyfriend and I were so impressed with the food our first time that we came back in less than a week! The food is great! I always get a grilled cheese with raw fries. My boyfriend was impressed with everything from the roast beef to the burger! The prices are extremely low for the quality of food. (: However,... More

Just had lunch here with some co-workers and have to say I like the value. Lunch special was sandwich, side, and drink for 7.99. The food was tasty, portions were ample and the service we had was excellent. The interior of Vella's is a little dark and outdated, but this adds to the character of the place.

We live nearby and saw the parking lot was usually full most of the time, so we thougth we would check it out. I understand this is bar food and super casual but nothing could prepare you for what you see when you walk in. I think a bus terminal has more ambiance. the actually menu looks good - my... More

I have been to Vella’s several times and have never been disappointed. The food is great, especially the Vella’s prime burger. The chicken tenders and quesadillas are also excellent. But, what I really like about this place is the happy hour. It’s one of the best in the Columbia area. You won’t find better prices during happy hour anywhere else... More

It is ok. Little noisy. The porkchops are pretty good. Not so sure I like the short shorts the staff wears.

My cousin and I came here to eat crablegs. They have a special on all you can eat crablegs on Mondays. When we got there it was already a full house. So upon waiting for a table we sat at the bar. The atmosphere was very mellow and relaxing. I love crablegs so I am looking forward to returning.
