Fantastically fresh fish!

This has been our go -to restaurant when the seafood cravings come. Stella's does not disappoint. This visit was a Groupon lunch special and everything was delicious.

My wife, daughter and I had a wonderful dinner on a Monday evening. Everything was delicious. We ordered mussels as an appetizer and it was plentiful - enough for a dinner. My wife and daughter both had the salmon stuffed with crabmeat and I had the blackened swordfish. Both were fantastic. The wait staff was excellent and we did not... More

I had dinner on the rooftop while in town visiting friends as Stella’s is one of their favorite places. A friend and I split the paella for 2, however some of the seafood was under cooked and we had to send it back. The server was very attentive and gracious. My friends still love it; I tend to not give... More

We came to Stella's for a work function and it didn't disappoint. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. I had some of the best Calamari and Walleye. All the sides were delicious as well. Although it is a bar type setting I wouldn't hesitate to bring my family here.

Love stella's for brunch, dinner or a night out with friends. Their food is always good and rooftop in the summer is prime. If you go out in the night they have something for everyone from a dance floor to live music or booths to sit and catch up with friends.

We dined at Stella's with a lunch Groupon which was an excellent deal! We both had the Peel & Eat Shrimp (1lb) appetizer and the Parm Walleye entree. The food portions were very generous and the food was excellent. Our service provided by Bae was good. The restaurant was spacious and very clean.

Having been here several times, but not for more than a year, we looked forward to coming here. Unfortunately 3 of the 4 things we tried were quite bland. I would not recommend the clam chowder, the shrimp scampi (which was $22.95!) or the strudel and ice cream (which was $9). Having had these dishes elsewhere, both in the Twin... More
