Stella’s Lounge is punk rock meets flavourful dishes. Pros: - Upon entering, you will likely be drawn to the arcade games and funky interior that highlights that quirkiness and character of the restaurant - The tacos and burgers were incredibly flavourful and topped with creamy...More

Two of us had dinner here before a concert on a Thursday night. It was already busy at 5pm but we got a table right away. Our waitress was prompt and got our drink orders. The Stella's punch is really good but it is strong!...More

Good service and very good burgers. Had the Monster burger. Even though it came out on a green bun the burger was very good. They also had a large selection of whiskeys and beers.

Stella's is a unique bar/restaurant downtown. They have some of the best burgers I have ever had. Great onion rings with big portions. They actually put alcohol in your cocktails unlike many restaurants in the downtown area. The location is within walking distance to just...More
