This place makes my favorite shrimp crunchy roll. They have fresh seafood all over the place. If you like oysters, I've also heard those are unbelievably good. If you go here, get seafood, and you will not be disappointed!

Had late lunch last week at Stella's. Walleye was very good, Nothing fancy- but the rooftop is a good way to spend an afternoon (except the 8 months of winter in MN ). Staff was young , friendly. Nice neighborhood feel to it .
