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.

Had an amazing experience at Stella's! The service was fantastic and the food to die for. The restaurant was easy to find and offered valet parking at the door. I will definitely be coming back.

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.

The food was great. My friends enjoyed the Sunday lobster meal with a great price. Our server Sarah was friendly and fun. Give that girl a raise!

First timer. Always heard the seafood was fresh, and it certainly lived up to expectations. Delightful food!
