They're known for there great burgers. It is a Whisky bar and arcade on top of that.

Very good whiskey selection available. The chronic fries are a must and the burgers are huge.

This place supposedly has the best burgers... They're good, but I've got to say that I really prefer all of Hopcat's food to Stella's. If you're looking for a good mixed drink with your dinner, this is the place to go. Some people really love it's dark, trendy atmosphere, but it wasn't the place for me. Probably not a great place for families. On the upside, the waitstaff has always been really friendly and quick, and there always seems to be room to seat you even though the place is packed every night. Their hours are somewhat bizarre, so make sure to check in advance if they'll be open when you're planning to go. If you like big burgers with unique flavors and really strong mixed drinks, this is a good place for you! They even have vegetarian black bean burgers with all the same trendy topping combinations.

Stella's is known for its big burgers, extensive whiskey list, and graffitied walls. It's not a whiskey bar, as hoped, though. Knowledgeable bartenders would greatly help this downtown Grand Rapids bar.

Stuffed burgers! Chronic fries! Massive whiskey list. Bearded bartenders with saucy attitudes.

Awesome burgers, brunch, and Bloody Mary bar, very unique "entertainment" such as: all tvs have different types of cartoons playing and old school video games

I'd read that Stella's was ranked as one of the top burgers in the country, and I'll admit I was a bit skeptical. Well, now I'm a believer. They really are amazing burgers. Juicy, full of flavor and filled with cheese. There's not much more you can ask for. The feel of the joint is definitely hipster, but the arcade games, retro cartoons on the TVs and pinball machine artwork on the walls makes for a very interesting motif. I enjoyed my visit and can't wait to try the rest of their menu.

Still a hipster joint. A lot of minors try to come in, but the bartender was good about politely kicking them out. Chronic Fries are amazing. Great food. Get the Stella's Punch. It will knock you on your ass

So much fun! Sunday brunch (all day) and gong-karaoke (starts at 9pm) are always tasty and a good time. The hamburgers are good, the old school video games will take you back in time. I really like the tacos though. And chronic fries. With chili.
