We've visited Stella's in the past and quit going because it was too loud for conversation. We tried again and found they put up a wall barrier between the dining room and the bar. What a great difference that made. The food was really good, the wait staff awesome and the dining area really a step up.

Normally I would give this restaurant a 5 but the entree I ordered was a tad bit disappointing. Broasted chicken although delicious there is no longer a choice of just white meat on a 1/2 order. I'm ok with that but Hubby isn't a dark meat fan. The sausage/stuffing side was ok & mashed potatoes were lumpy. It's been a... More

Easy parking. We ate on the dinner side of the patio. The patio is split between the screened in dinner patio and the non-screened in bar side patio. The dinner screened in portion did not have smoking but the outdoor drinking patio had smoking and was much louder. The tuna was really great. It was enough for a meal for... More

My grandson is going into the military and we decided last minute to have a little celebration. Called at noon and they set us up in the screened porch at 6:30. Was a great space for our family to move around and visit. Service and food were excellent. I truly believe Stella's is a hidden treasure in Forest LAke. Champagne... More

We have driven by this place so many times and never stopped. This was our day. We dined in the screen porch with a nice view of the golf course. Service was very good and the food was as well.

The beef stroganoff was good. It appears to be their pasta specialty. When I make it the beef is fork tender -- these chunks had to be cut with a knife, but they were quite tasty. I'm not sure any of the mushrooms were "wild" but there were a few different kinds. No regrets on this menu choice. The outside... More

I've had previous good experiences at Stella's so I was a little surprised by the service on Mother's Day. Our waitress was very friendly but would disappear for extended amounts of time. I'm thinking they may have been understaffed but the restaurant wasn't overly busy when we were there. I think the bigger disappointment was how the host greeted us... More

We visited with a larger party at dinner, but the restaurant was empty and plenty of servers were around. The meal took forever, our party was bored and everyone was staring at their phones waiting for the food that didn't come. When it finally did, several of the order were wrong, condiments and drunk refills didn't make it, and it... More

We dined here for lunch two Sundays in a row because we enjoyed this place so much- I was told it had recently been remodeled. The atmosphere was warm & inviting- American supper club style food- Walleye dinner was wonderful- choice of Sweet Potato fries is offered along with standard potato options - Fresh Veggies were crisp and tasty.
