Average food, good service

There were three of us eating and we each ordered something different. The Raw Fries were nothing more than bagged chips the were hard and cold. The mixed veggies were swimming in oil - not good. Several of the onion rings were missing onions. All in all it was a disappointing meal.

Nice to come into a restaurant and the server remembers you. Come in here when I can. The food is always good and the service has always been great.

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 The interior of Vella's is a little dark and outdated, but this adds to the character of the place.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
