Recommended by a local. Informal comfortable setting The soda water and lime was the best! Second place: breaded catfish was tasty and plentiful. After the meal we asked where the fish was sourced: farmed on the east coast. Hmmm, environmental and antibiotic issues with fish farms. Third place: cold yam fries. No flavour. Fourth: dry bean burger on a poor... More

I tend to go to Stella Blues before a show at the State Theater. You can make a reservation, which is really nice. I have always had excellent service. We let them know when are going to a show and they make sure we eat and leave on time. Food is unique and delicious. Love their burger on the menu.

Great restaurant serving cajun food. The jambalaya and cajun pasta are excellent. Great beer selection too.

As a frequent visitor of Stella's, I like the atmosphere and the drinks are great. The food is generally good Creole style food but it can be hit or miss. The one negative is the hostess (maybe owner's wife?) with blonde hair. She is not polite and we have had a several unpleasant encounters with her despite the fact we... More

Stella Blues has a very large menu with options for every palette in both the food and drink categories. This visit was overall very good with a few minor hiccups. The bartender was not busy but seemed to be far more concerned with getting the candles lit than actually taking our drink order. The food server was very attentive, however.... More

Valentine Night without reservations and they still had open seating. Kinda of wondered how good it would be as we don't normally go to places that have 'pub' in the food type category. What a surprise. The back has a complete restraraunt. The food was out standing as was the service. Great selections and aumbiance. We will definitely be returning.

We went there as a family. All had pasta, with ample leftovers for a snack the next day. The food had a nice "kick" with Cajun spice that can be toned down for the asking. Nobody rushed us. The service was friendly, if not always prompt. I look forward to returning.

After a long days drive and checking in at The Plaza we asked for restaurant recommendations. Several chain restaurants were suggested. Further prompting for a more of an experience the venue "Stella Blues" was suggested. A short time later we were seated and settled into a wonderful evening, with prompt polite service, well prepared food in a great atmosphere. If... More

Stella Blues is a great choice for dinner while in downtown EC. It is in a good location that is easy to get to from anywhere in EC. There is plenty of parking, their lot is on the river side. They have a list of all the draft beers available that certainly covers the spectrum. Plus they have a full... More

This place offers a variety of options. You can get a simple or fancy burger. You can try a unique pasta dish. You can find a spicy (New Orleans-origin?) dish. The sweet potato fries with slightly-spicy mayo dip are a MUST. Lots of alcohol options. Local decor. A little chilly when the temp drops below zero outside.
