My wife and I ate at Zella's and had a very nice experience. I had the pot roast and my wife had the halibut. Both dishes were excellent. The service was outstanding and the staff was friendly and helpful. They also have a great wine list.

Traveling through town we chose Zella's for lunch based on reviews from TripAdvisor. You order at the counter and the food is brought to your table. We were happy with our choice. One in our party said the meatloaf sandwich was the best he had ever eaten. Recommended.

This restaurant was off the charts excellent. We really had no grand expectations as we picked the spot because it was equal driving distance from our friends. We were delighted with the interesting menu and hoped the chef's ability matched the offerings. The service and the foods were excellent. Everyone ordered something different from a burger to meatloaf to pizza.... More

Went there first night after new ownership. I had Zella filet, spouse had chicken. We shared a full size pear salad. All very good. Our server Melissa did a nice job and checked back in a timely manner. Great evening. Thank you for a great dining experience. We will be back.

Although there food is typically yummy it's shadowed by consistently poor service. We waited almost 10 mins after being seated when I finally took the initiative to get some food headed our way. The lady I asked seemed to be from another area or a perhaps a supervisor and she was fabulous. That being said, she wasn't supposed to be... More

Stopped for lunch. Very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere! Food very tasty and fresh. Half sandwich and side was a nice option.

I did not expect to find a restaurant like this in Hutch. Great, from scratch cooking of unique items. The meatloaf was great and more than made up for my so-so cocktail.

Zella's ciabatta chicken was always my favorite, now it is only so so. The bun is double the size of the chicken breast now, no capers, no tangy sauce, no oozing cheese...PLEASE, PLEASE fix!!

Zella's is a restaurant you would expect to see in a more metropolitan area, so a great change of pace if you are sick of chain sandwich shops found in Small Town Everywhere. Menu options are unique and reportedly change with the season and dining hour, food sourced locally when possible. Be sure to check online for hours of operation... More

You don't find many places like this outside of a metro area. We had a chicken sandwich and a cup of wild rice soup both were good .nice atmosphere if it was not such a drive we would try dinner as we were road tripping.

This is an amazing find in southwestern MN. You usually have to drive another 70 miles to the twin cities to get this level of food. Please list so we can review! Thanks!
