We had a late lunch using a Groupon. Our waiter, Tony, was very attentive and knowledgeable. The Groupon included 2 cocktails, a starter dish in which we ordered PEI Mussels in champagne broth which were large & delicious. For the entrée we ordered the warm lobster rolls that came with a side. My husband got a huge salad with it and I enjoyed my garlic mashed potatoes.

We really like dining at Stella's.

The food was very good and service was friendly and responsive to any of our questions and needs. The restaurant was clean and casual. Definetly a casual, fun place for seafood with a more “cheffy” treatment of the food as opposed to a particular chain seafood restaurant.

If you haven't sat with him yet at stellas you need to try it! I know he's usually busy with lots of regulars but it's worth the wait. He can guide you throughout the whole menu one fun way to have a dinning experience.
Thanks Noah!
See you after the first of the year.

We had a reservation for 6 and we were seated quickly. The dinner selections are always great,too!
As there were 3 company Christmas parties going on, we were unable to get valet parking, but normally it isn’t a problem.

The food was amazing! I had the scallops and they were cooked to perfection! They lacked in customer service. We went for my daughters 16th Birthday- when the waiter brought out her dessert he didn’t even know who it was for. He just stood there looking at the table. After I said it was my daughter Birthday he just dropped the dessert and left. No happy birthday! It took away from a special night! The sad part was while we were eating they sang happy Birthday to another table:(

We had cold air blowing on us. We froze. Our dinner view was a huge photo of a shirtless guy pinching his love handles....it literally took my appetite away. Food was subpar at best. We will go to one of the many other steak/seafood places and get a much better experience.
