An earlier reviewer caught my views when he described it as good not great. The food was ok but that's about it - not really value for the prices charged. The service was ok - moderately friendly but a bit slow. The environment is a bit dark and almost cold. Not somewhere I'd go back to - but not because... More

It's been years since I've ordered this item from any menu but i tried it here. 1stly, usually I've been disappointed in the portion size of this dish but here there was 2 perfectly sized fillets that were more than I could have expected with this dish. I was also pleased with the blackened seasoning which also can be a... More

We stopped here for dinner before the Sounds Like Summer concert in Phoenix Park on a Thursday night. Great place to people watch from those front windows. Waitress was prompt to get food and drink. I ordered the Shrimp Po Boy and was pleased with the flavor. We also order the cheese curds. Since we are in search of the... More

Great aesthetics and great food! I believe it is the bourbon pasta plate I got the last time I was in and it was amazing. Great beer selection, great inspired mixed drinks. Top three places in EC for sure.

I really liked the food and the service. Our waitress was very nice with a sense of humor and was quick. The food was really good my wife and I liked both of our dishes. To be honest it was cheaper than I figured and it was worth more than I paid. Drinks and food around $60.00. Worth the trip... More

Food was pretty good. Our waiter was good but I think it was "good" not great or excellent. Probably wouldn't go out of my way to go back.

Fun place to visit. Great mix of familiar and perhaps unfamiliar items on menu. A little creole spice sprinkled in the northwoods.

I used to love this restaurant. The last few times I've visited the food and service has been terrible and the prices have markedly increased. The last time I visited I ordered a chicken sandwich but the chicken was so rubbery and fatty that I couldn't eat it. I had only taken in bite when I asked for a refund.... More

This is my go-to place for date night or dinner with friends. The owners are a bit snooty, but they've earned that right around here. The food is great, the service is usually very good, and their cocktails are always delicious. We've never had problems here and have always left full and happy.

Went with a group of friends and although I'm from Eau Claire, this was my first visit to Stella Blues. It has a classic style interior and maintains the charm of yesteryear. Since it was later in the evening, we just had appetizers and beverages, pricey, but both very good. Our server was great, however, the hostess was a bit... More
