The 70's-80's arcade was fun. Hostess was great but from there it was just ok. Menu items were unique. Must say my husbands buffalo burger was delicious and cooked perfectly. Mine was not. Perhaps had not expected "the best burger In the nation" I would not have been dissapointed. My high expectations left me dissapointed. Best whisky selection around but... More

Visited after so many raved about this place. SO VERY BUSY. Came at 2:30 and there was a 40 minute wait and there is nowhere to stand to wait. Parking is a pain--think typical city parking. Love all the retro video games and tvs with throw back shows (HeMan was so fun!!). Fun atmosphere. Service was pretty quick and friendly.... More

If you like waiting in lines (for no apparent reason) this is the place for you. They trick you into going to the dance floor, where there is no bathroom. If you leave for the bathroom they'll make you wait to get back in. Either you get a catheter or pee on their dance floor. If that wasn't bad enough,... More

I happened to stumble upon this place while on a work trip. Pretty cool place to grab a bite. Definitely has the 80's theme with music in the background and tv's playing movies and old school tv shows.They also have a bunch of vintage arcade games to play as well. It's also very dimly lit at night. I'm not sure... More

I can't believe how busy this place was on a Saturday at 5:30. No seats even at the bar. Great selection of whiskey. Good burgers. I tried the white lightning bean burger. It was fine as were the avocado bites. The onion rings were great. The cookie dough dessert was also good. I had a dirty tito's martini. It was... More

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...
