Enjoyed Easter buffet--especially fish. Carver told me beef tenderloin was pork, but it was good and I was able to enjoy a medium-rare portion. Stairs are difficult for me, so we used elevator for balcony seating (buffet was on second floor).

Excellent spinach and shrimp dip. Great food! Great hosts! Fun atmosphere! Fast efficient service. Favorite place for sea food in Minneapolis. Check out the new roof top bar that overlooks Minneapolis! Amazing!

This was our second time here! We had a great Groupon Lunch Deal! Our server Meghan was fantastic! The Shaggie Sushi Roll was Wonderful! The Fish Punch drink was very good and it had quite a punch! I got the Lobster Roll with fries. It was good, but I must say that I like it better at the Smack Shack!... More

Twice we have been at Stella's Fish Cafe and loved it both times. We get the Lobster bake in the bucket with all the shrimp, clams, and potatoes. The absolute best!

We took the Groupon offer for this meal for two, with wine. It came with a yummy cup of lobster bisque, delicious fresh salads (choices), and a huge pan of lobster, shrimp, andouille sausage and mussels with a delicious tomato and spinach base on the bottom. Soaking that up with the grilled bread was just one taste of greatness. Top... More

First time for me, second for my wife; we came due to her hearty recommendation and very glad we did. We came about 6 pm on a Sunday and were surprised to be asked if we had reservations. We said no, but they were kindly able to find a spot for us. The place was jumping within the half hour.... More

Stellas is a very well ran establishment. The happy hour on Saturday and all day Sunday. The tuna nachos, the parm shrimp poppers and 2fer1 drinks are great. Prices are suitable for the type of atmosphere.

WOW! What a great experience my wife and I had at Stella's Fish Cafe. It was a very busy night. We arrived about twenty minutes early ahead of our reservation time. No problem, just a short five minute wait and we were seated. We had barley settled in when our waitress arrived. Holy cow what service. All night long we... More

Aside from the rooftop patio, I wasn't real impressed with the menu as a vegetarian so I never really felt the need to return here. I'm real sorry I didn't return sooner. Our server, Kirsten was fabulous! My food was delicious. I had vegetarian sushi and mashed potatoes. Both were very good. My family had mussels, fried fish, fried shrimp,... More
