Good bar type atmosphere, with above average food and a lengthy list of whiskey, scotch and other liquors. Good service.

Came to Stella's on the recommendation of cousin and her husband who live locally. She's a vegetarian and is able to get vegetarian 'junk food' that's extremely tasty, while we gorged ourselves on the chili, a hamburger and nachos. They have a good beer list, an outstanding whiskey list, and the chili was delicious. The wait staff was good and... More

I ordered the Big Ballah, and was not dissapointed! It was delicious. The atmosphere is also very fun and youthful. They have old video games, eclectic decor, and even karaoke.

My husband and I love Grand Rapids. One year ago we were married in Coopersville and had our reception in Grand Rapids, we had been to Stellas before. They have great stuffed burgers and the place is filled with video games that reminded us of our younger years. Before sitting at the bar for a drink, we had already eaten,... More

I have eaten at Stella's numerous times. Since going vegetarian this has been my go to location when in GR. They have many option for the vegetarian lifestyle. I highly recommend the vegan "chicken" wings and the hippie stuffed burger! Both taste great! Finally, don't forget to try their "chronic" fries!! They offer retro tv shows on the tv screens...

We stopped by here during a Sunday of ArtPrize for a quick drink at the bar. We managed to grab the last two seats available. We had heard great things about this place but had other plans for dinner. My husband ordered a beer on tap and I ended up getting one of their cocktails. Despite having heard great reviews... More

I went to Stella's for dinner after Artprize to check out their famous burgers. I had a specialty whiskey and a stuffed burger with seasoned fries. The whiskey was excellent. The burger was highly seasoned, juicy, and satisfying. The wonderfully nice gentleman next to me let me taste his stuffed tater tots, which were comfort food yummy. The service at... More

We were pleasantly surprised. Doesn't look like much on the outside, but the sandwiches and drink selection are both outstanding. I had the olive burger, hubby had the Philly Steak. Both were great. PBR on draft for $1.75 was nice after the previous day full of micro-brews. Video games galore for a child of the 80's. 😁

Stella's has great pub food, beer and whiskey selection's. We were in town for a concert and Stella's is a couple blocks from the Van Andel Arena. We started with the Bacon Fat Popcorn and it was amazing! It was amazing! We loved it. We also had the queso dip which was very good just wish they gave you more.... More
