Good atmosphere

Ate here with a group of friends and we had a good time. The atmosphere is decent and the food is pretty good as well. Lots of different micro and craft brewery beer on tap. The prices for everything are ok but a tad steeper than some other places. We have eaten here in the past and it's been... read more

Visited Stella Blue with my sister, brother and his wife for their Monday night catfish special. We all selected catfish, done is all the ways they prepare it. Fine meal, nice salad. My sister and I had our blackened - it was perfect, juicy and just the right amount of heat. Server was excellent, the local beer choices were large... More

I have been to this place multiple times and it is hit or miss. We have been totally ignored before while sitting at the bar with terrible food. We have just recently had spectacular food with awesome service.

We go here as often as possible after it being recommended to us. Not where I would bring children which keeps us from going more often since we usually have our kids with us. The food so far has been perfect with beautiful friendly service. The drink menu is just awesome try something different everytime. Good thing there is a... More

I convinced my family to try Stella Blues after visiting Mona Lisa during my last trip to Eau Claire. This place did not disappoint. I lived the music. I loved the food. Our server was awesome too. Our group tried the cornbread, fried catfish and spinach do appetizers. The portabella, artichoke and spinach dip was my favorite. The mushrooms added... More

Stella's is the 'casual side' of Mona Lisa's. Same owner. It's more of a beer place rather than a wine place. Draft beer features local breweries. Food isn't as upscale as Lisa's but it isn't as pricey, either. I was a bit disappointed in my beef medallions. I ordered medium/rare and they were medium well. A bit tough, too. The... More

Every time we are in Eau Claire we must go to Stella Blues. We have always found the service fast and friendly. The food is freshly prepared and served hot. We love the pasta dishes.

Went here for an anniversary on a Monday night. New York Strip is excellent. Serving of potato and veggies are a bit small, but the steak was excellent. My girlfriend ordered the Rosemary Fried Chicken sandwich and said it was very good. Friendly staff, clean place!

A girlfriend and I are here last night, my first time but she'd been here a few times previously. A long time Eau Claire resident, I had just never eaten here as I am not s big fan of Cajun food. It's possible I've just never had well done Cajun food before. We started with corn bread which was the... More

Having eaten here on several occasions - we have yet to be disappointed. Two of these times have been on Labor Day Weekends and we invaded the place with a number of family members and the service and cuisine have been excellent. Our family group has a very wide range of culinary desires - both with the food and drinks,... More
