The best seafood since living out east! The clam chowder had a nice smoky flavor, the calamari was actually calamari and Not deep fried rubber bands! Will absolutely be going back when I need a true seafood fix.

My girlfriend ordered the Walleye. We were expecting it fillet not with it being breaded and served like fish and chips
Ordered an appetizer and for two scallops and a piece of bacon it cost $16. Absolutely ridiculous

We’ve been to Stella’s many times. This last visit was on my birthday. I noted in the open table reservation that we were coming to Stella’s to celebrate my birthday. Not a single employee wished me a happy birthday. That was disappointing. I love Stella’s cioppino. The sauce was flavorful but was missing a key ingredient, fennel.

Stella’s was fabulous as always. Their blackened swordfish with bear side is my favorite. The champagne mussels is a must! My boyfriend got the NY strip and thatnwas also divine. Definitely my favorite place to go! A little pricey but definitely worth it. Absolutely delicious.

This visit was the best I've had in a very long time. This place makes Red Lobster seem like a McDonald's. The sea food was fresh, hot and very tasty. My husband and I went to Stella's for the first time on Valentines Day that also happened to be our 14th year wedding anniversary. We both loved our choices. We both got the sea food platter and the champagne mussels for an appetizer. We would love to come back. Also the parking wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

This was the second time at Stella’s. The food was great as usual, but the service was subpar this time. We made a reservation for a booth and they gave us a table.. the whole reason for booking our reservation later in the night was because a booth reservation was a available, then we didn’t even get it.. also, our waiter seemed like he didn’t want to be there and didn’t provide the best service to us. I will still go back because I love the food, but hope for a better experience like the first time.

First time here. Valet parking was full so we had to find alternate parking. Wasn’t able to use the $3 parking discount for open table reservation. It was Valentine’s Day so it was busy and noisy. Our server did an amazing job. We were pleased with the pace of the food arriving at a the table. The champagne mussels were fabulous. The salmon Oscar was really good. I will be back to try the roof top patio and other food.

Great place to go for Valentines Day. Wonderful meal and great service. The only thing I would say is that I really wonder about the person who picks the art work. Seems to have a thing for overweight middle aged men.

Great atmosphere and excellent food! I had the fish tacos under starters but completely filled me. Others had salmon, apple walnut salad and jumbalaya. All were amazing! We were close to a side door that was used often and very cold outside so jackets came back in but otherwise excellent.

For the paltry amount of seafood dotting the bun of a lobster roll, the price was an eye-popping $26. I can get the same thing with better quality at Sea Salt for under $15. Tiny pieces of lobster on a sub-par roll, along with an ice cream scoop of mash potatoes and a 1/4 cup of coleslaw comprised this dinner. The prices were just astronomical, in fact insulting. I get that the seafood isn't fresh - we're in the midwest afterall. But nothing really seemed fresh. I'll never return.

We had a great experience at Stella’s when we were in town for the SuperBowl. Mo at the bar was just tremendous. Great service awesome drinks. Server at dinner Tony was outstanding and so was our meal with savory flavors, wonderfully fresh and well prepared fish and steaks. Our entire party loved the meal. We will definitely return on our next trip to Minn.

We weren't offered the high top table (I may have misunderstood) and the wait staff seemed to want to grab our food before we were finished and I had to ask for a bib (not ashamed of that), but all in all the lobster was good for the price. I have recommended this meal to friends. I will be back, lobster lover.

This restaurant seems to have an identity crisis. It's part Uptown bar (lots of loud youngsters), grub pub, and seafood shack. It's cavernous and lacks any ambiance. The overpriced seafood is gravely over-sauced. Not a good place for a date or anyone serious about food.
