I enjoyed the Stella Blue here - good, hearty and tasty food. Nice environment, busy on a Thursday too. A good selection of beers as well as alternative drinks (Bourbon/Scotch).

My wife and I ate dinner at Stellas this past weekend. I had a cheese burger and my wife had a black bean burger. We shared some tots. Everything was excellent. Stellas has some of the best burgers in town.
