Stella's Lounge @ Jack & Stella offers our customers a little bit of everything. So many people have walked through the door and said, “wow this is so sweet” while many others remember days gone by when this building was a General Store. We are so pleased to bring you our version of a General Store. Our goal it to be your destination, that place where you want to come and can’t wait to bring a friend. The home away from home where your kids want to go and will remember for years to come. A place where friends will meet on a Saturday afternoon by boat or girlfriends will save the date for that special getaway weekend. We are clear about our purpose and our mission. We aim every day to provide you with an unbelievable customer experience coupled with an awesome selection of goods and food products, yummy eats and really tasty drinks. Cheers.

    The best spot in Muskoka! Stella’s lounge has a great wine selection and delicious Italian dishes. The cafe in the front is also perfect for coffee and lunch/brunch. A must visit and the owners are the nicest people on earth. don’t walk…run there!

    Not impressed- very long wait time for food and drinks- had to ask for a menu 3 times, and the wait staff were not interested in serving us- I had to go in for my bill, and I had to go in for a take out container.

    We were asked to leave before we were ready because our table was booked for the next guests. If we had known about this up front we would have ordered more quickly. Otherwise, everything was perfect. But this caused some disappointment on our part. And the table next to ours was empty and continued to be for some time afterward as we didn’t leave right away. So we wondered why the restaurant didn’t use that table rather than asking us to leave.

    We were seated upstairs with a perfect view down Lake Muskoka. Enjoyed watching the ducks swimming while seagulls swooped through the clear sky. The apps were delicious, both the spicy olives and the tomatoes and buratta cheese. We loved the mushroom pizza . The spicy rigatoni was aptly named. Very spicy. A lovely evening of great ambiance and delicious food.

    Has become one of our favorite places for a good meal - not bar food. Great apps and have never been disappointed with the entrees. Abby and Olivia are super servers.

    Had a great meal last night at Stella’s lounge on a beautiful summer night on the dock. The water ski show was on so that was a bonus. Highly recommend the summer spaghetti and the charcuterie board. Pizza was also outstanding. Always such friendly and courteous staff🥰

    My mom and I came in for a mother-daughter dinner date which we never do any more and it was just absolutely perfect! We have a long standing tradition of going to see the ski show by boat every summer but this summer I, unfortunately, could only be up here for a short period of time. In this time, our boat has been broken and all of the marinas have been too full to take it in. Thus, Stella’s lounge to the rescue!!! We had a perfect view of the ski show and we’re able to chat with each other and reconnect. The staff was over-the-top friendly and our food was delicious! I was worried being a vegetarian that there wouldn’t be many options for me, but there were so many to choose from! Absolutely come here for dinner, to grab a coffee, or bring your pup to Georgie’s for dogs and doughnut days on Thursdays!! We brought our lab-boxer mix in this past Thursday and had a blast! We got a bandanna, entered in a raffle, and shopped around at all the dog goodies. 10000/10 ⭐️🌟🥇

    Beautiful location, ordered pizza which was just a frozen pizza, pasta portion was small, menu selection is limited. Had hoped for made from scratch food from local ingredients. Did not deliver

    Stella's Lounge @ Jack & StellaResponded on July 20, 2022We are early days in Stella's Lounge and despite our wonderful reviews we feel it's important to respond to those who are not as satisfied to give some perspective. Regarding our quality, all of our food is made with care, and many of our items are homemade including our sauces and dressings. We are a small kitchen and don't have the capacity to make everything from scratch, we are transparent about this. As a response to this challenge we choose to partner with the best suppliers out there.

    It was raining So we sat inside upstairs. Cute spot. They were out of many menu items. Would have liked to sit outside as it seemed like a nicer vibe.

    Loved it! Started off with a successful shopping spree in Stella’s Closet. Love the brands and styles and the staff are great models and very helpful! Then also had a nice time looking at all of the beautiful things in Jack and Stella’s Store. Got some lovely items for the cottage. And finally, out to Stella’s Lounge for drinks and a Delicious dinner! Spectacular view and the service was outstanding. Everyone enjoyed their meal, the gnocchi, spaghetti, and ravioli, so so good. Excellent wines and the music was perfect. We love the VIBE at Jack and Stella. Thank you! Carolyn 🇨🇦

    I love the location of this venue and the service is excellent. The lounge is new and the menu is not extensive. The pizza was good but the nicoise salad was small and lacked some key ingredients such as green beans, eggs and potatoes and was overpriced. I will return and give it another chance.

    The location is lovely and the scenery can’t be beat. The food was very good, but the pizza and pasta are simply reheated Porta frozen delivery meals. It was delicious but I have it in my freezer at home. We did know that going in though and it didn’t keep us away. They did a great job with it and we would still go back for the service and ambiance — both of which were great. Appetizers and cocktails were very good — best burrata I can remember having. Edit: I’m confused by the restaurants reply here that seems to say that the food is not from Terronis, which is also available through their Porta delivery service, when it is. That’s not a bad thing. It just is what it is — Terroni’s good is delicious! It’s nothing to be ashamed of — it’s a good idea and a great way to turn a store into a cafe — and they did a good job of the prep — just stating where the food came from and that it’s available for delivery — but without the view!

    Stella's Lounge @ Jack & StellaResponded on June 27, 2022We are happy that you enjoyed Jack & Stella's location and our service. It was however unfortunate that you walked away with a misunderstanding of our menu's ingredients and the process in which we prepare our meals. We have worked very hard to develop a menu that is of high quality ingredients including many fresh items that are prepared by our in-house chef daily.
