We had catfish fingers/onion rings and fried fish/dirty rice. Huge servings with both. Couldn't eat all the onion rings. Would have been better to have smaller size of the rings. Catfish was well prepared, fried perfectly. The fried fish was good. Kelly C was out waitstaff, and was very attentive... read more

Upon entering, the hostess was very cold and not friendly. She didn't say much and tossed our menus onto the table. We've never been here before, so that was a terrible first impression. My food was great (a little pricier than we expected but delicious none the less). I got the pasta Rockefeller. My fiancé's pulled pork was not so... More

Really great food and menu choices. Consistently great food. The only suggestion is a new manager to better organize the servers, expedite the delivery of food, therefore provide a more relaxed dining experience. The current manager {blonde lady} has been there forever but has an attitude problem. Servers are very nice. I took a friend there for her birthday, a... More

We travel to New Orleans every year to eat in everything from food trailers to top restaurants. If we had this food in the South, we would never return. There isn't any consistency from one meal to another. The ingredients are often a bit old. Frozen food shouldn't be served in a restaurant for these prices. Eau Claire restaurants always... More

The food was delicious. The menu offers a lot of cajun style items and we had a variety of them. We enjoyed the catfish sandwich and the fried chicken with parmesan. They have an extensive beer list that was fun to look over and choose from. We sat in the front near the bar. It was fun to see people... More

Interesting dishes. Fun atmosphere. Full bar. I've never had a bad meal here. The portobello appetizer is so good. I also recommend the sweet potato fries!

It is always a pleasure to have dinner at Stella Blues! The building has some very interesting architectural details that make it more interesting than your average plastic cookie cutter chain restaurant (which I avoid as much as possible). The cocktails are interesting and the food is delicious! I highly recommend the sweet bourbon pasta. Your taste buds will thank... More
