Valentine Night without reservations and they still had open seating. Kinda of wondered how good it would be as we don't normally go to places that have 'pub' in the food type category. What a surprise. The back has a complete restraraunt. The food was out standing as was the service. Great selections and aumbiance. We will definitely be returning.

We went there as a family. All had pasta, with ample leftovers for a snack the next day. The food had a nice "kick" with Cajun spice that can be toned down for the asking. Nobody rushed us. The service was friendly, if not always prompt. I look forward to returning.

After a long days drive and checking in at The Plaza we asked for restaurant recommendations. Several chain restaurants were suggested. Further prompting for a more of an experience the venue "Stella Blues" was suggested. A short time later we were seated and settled into a wonderful evening, with prompt polite service, well prepared food in a great atmosphere. If... More

Stella Blues is a great choice for dinner while in downtown EC. It is in a good location that is easy to get to from anywhere in EC. There is plenty of parking, their lot is on the river side. They have a list of all the draft beers available that certainly covers the spectrum. Plus they have a full... More

This place offers a variety of options. You can get a simple or fancy burger. You can try a unique pasta dish. You can find a spicy (New Orleans-origin?) dish. The sweet potato fries with slightly-spicy mayo dip are a MUST. Lots of alcohol options. Local decor. A little chilly when the temp drops below zero outside.

Had a large group and the staff handled it well. They were quick with drink orders, they had great appetizers and the vibe was good. My steak was very chewy though and I could hardly cut it. That is my one complaint. Everything else was great!

This place had terrible service. I sat at a table for over 10 minutes with employees passing me at least 7 times without anyone speaking to me. I saw several servers in their little area talking so I guess hey we're too busy socializing to see to their guests. I got up and left to never return.

A staple in Eau Claire, fancy dining, comfy atmosphere and hearty, delectable meals! We had their cheese curds and they were yummy too! I highly recommend the scallops, however everything on their menu looked very good! The drinks were delicious too! This is high class dining with a price tag, but definitely the place to go if you're looking for... More

Very cool atmosphere, good size menu, a lot of choices for most eaters. Waitress was great, honest with suggestions and very friendly. Wasn't the best Cajun food ever but is a great choice for non chain in Eau Claire. Def a beer type of place for me but they do have a ton of mixed drink choices.

I was pleased that they could accommodate our large group. The drinks were good and the waitress was friendly. It took a while for our food to come out and when it did, it wasnt all that great. The catfish was pretty good, but the red beans & rice didnt have much flavor. On the other end, my Moms jambalaya... More
