Although the parking lot outside of the restaurant was filled, we only had to wait a bit for seating. However, we found the place very noisy and the food average. We do not anticipate eating there again.

Family owned restaurant has closed it's door. Sad day. We will miss Stella's. Could always count of good food and service with local flair.

I'm quite shocked to hear that they closed up shop. We came here every time we came to Maui and always enjoyed the awesome service and delicious food that they had. I was really lucky to dine on here on my last trip to Maui at the end of April 2014, but was really sad when I read in the... More

after 23 years of serving South Maui/Kihei and the rest of Maui Nei, Stellas has closed their doors, effectively immediately. According to their FB page they, like several other popular long time eateries that I have recently reviewed, were not able to come to renewable lease term agreements with the landlords... Cindy and her wonderful dedicated crew/staff well be sorely... More

I usually don't like to go to restaurants for dinner that advertises that they serve breakfast, lunch & dinner. I always wonder how fresh the food is? However, on the 2 occasions that my husband and I went for dinner, the food was outstanding. The fresh fish breaded with crushed macadamia nuts and served on top of purple mashed sweet... More

Went mainly for the happy hour as there is entertainment daily from 4 to 6 p.m. We weren't disappointed and it was a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. Ended up eating in the bar.......had fish & chips and the burger - $10 each and was OK for the price. The bar staff were pleasant and efficient. Would... More

Went twice to watch Willy K play. Had dinner one night. Very friendly and helpful staff. The food was excellent but portions were large and a bit pricey

The food at Stella's was incredible. We ordered the Smoked Marlin Dip to start and it was mouth watering good! Everyone LOVED their meals. Bar and wait staff were so friendly and helpful. We even got to see a live band...such a blast!

My dad made a reservation here for a place to stop on the way to the airport from wailea. Food was pretty decent and our waitress was soooooo friendly. The EB was good and so was the bacon!

We go to Maui annually and always make a stop to Stella's. Although our waiter was pleasant and attentive, everyone and everything else lacked any energy. The food (miso shrimp) was good, but not good enough to warrant a $26 price tag. I think this place could easily be a solid 4-star restaurant with just a shot of energy, which... More
