We were welcomed by several wait staff when entering the bar area. The service was exceptional and the happy hour menu provided good food selections. A good time was had and will definitely return again when in Forest Lake.

I went to Stella’s on 97 with my mom and sister. When I visit we always go for a ‘nice’ meal. They’d enjoyed Stella’s before and given that a character in the novel I’m writing is named Stella, I quickly agreed. I perused the menu...More

Went here with the family because we had a coupon. Very friendly service from the host and server. Food was quite delicious. Prices are on the high side without discounts but we felt it was worth it.

Lamb chops. Wonderful. Cooked perfectly. Most places don't offer them. Don't know why. Good service. Good cocktail. Place seemed a little dark. That may just have been me. Gotta go back soon.

The Bloody Mary's are delicious, served with the best bacon slice ever! The food is all good, never had anything less than delicious. The Champagne Chicken is tender, flavorful, and served with good vegies! Our favorite new place to go!

I totally agree with another reviewer that the remodel which cuts down on bar noise in the dining room was the best thing! We too have had some 'way too much noise' visits there in the past. We haven't tried the screened porch, but I'm...More
