    Had the hot stuff burger. If you like your burgers spicy, this one is for you.

    It's a shame, they've started carding for entrance, whether it's for drinking or even just ordering a burger. They're off our list of places to take friends when they visit.

    Great Burgers and Fries. Old School Video Games are great too.

    Go to hop cat. Better burgers, better beer, and better fries. And it's owned by the same folks, so it's got a good vibe.

    Absolutely love stellas. The punch is great. Burgers are fantastic. I love the shows on tv but have never played the games.

    Was ignored for 10min after we were sat by the hostess. Maybe because I was with my daughter and I told them I wasn't drink because I was driving. I'm very disappointed.

    Cool place. The burger was as advertised. Very juicy, the burger was hot and the lettuce, onion, tomato was crisp and cold. I had the Government cheese burger (stuffed with cheese). bomb.com

    The burgers were phenomenal , and the fries were delicious, i had a gov't cheese burger. Then played a little pinball, what's better than that?

    I was stoked to try the burgers here after hearing all the hype. After waiting for more than an hour, we got seated. Service was decent. Burger meat contained hair... not awesome. But the scotch!

    BURGERS. Cheap old school beers and usually a few MI drafts as well. Also, the deep fried avocado Nugents are legit.

    We love this place. Awesome retro atmosphere & best burgers & bar food. BUT when they're BUSY & they have a backroom bar w/booths & tables for WAITING ONLY that's BS. We'll leave if not seated soon.

    Don't go to karaoke on Sunday unless you are a professional singer, otherwise you will wait an hour to sing your song and then get your song cut after a minute.

    The bartenders here are always HUGE pricks. I think that's part of the, uh, charm? I still keep coming back because the burgers, the sangria, and the free retro dance parties cannot be beat.

    Don't bother coming Sunday nights. Block off half the tables and the awful DJ takes a full hour to set up his two speakers for kareoke night.

    This place has gotten rid of a lot of their vegan sandwiches and the food has gone down in quality since I first started coming here years ago. Still decent, just not great.

    Pro tip: The napkins are pretty straight forward in being of bar/tavern type construction. Nice and sturdy enough with no frills simplicity. 10/10 Would wipe mouth again.

    Watch out! They up charge $2 for an old fashioned. Isn't that what I'm tipping my bartender for? Bad policy for a whiskey bar! :(

    Food was good, but had a silly problem with the drinks and bleach-blonde manager-bartender was awful about it. Cool atmosphere, but too dark and the music was too loud. Excellent burgers.

    I have friends that work here, but even so, it's nice to have a bar that 1) doesn't play fucking sports on the TVs and 2) plays good music all day

    Every Thursday DJ.Colin.Clive spins a mix of retro, industrial, alternative, synth pop, punk, 80's & indie tunes in the side room! 10-2. No Cover.

    The music is awesome. Great playlist of songs, packed with classics! Make sure you go in the right door otherwise you'll push your way to the crowd to get to the hostess!

    Awesome food!! Service sucks!!!! Not child friendly. Had to wait 35 mins to order food when waitress got to the table she said the bartender forgot to tell her we were waiting to order

    Remember when Stellas used to have a plethora of vegan food? Well, atleast the bloody mary bar is good and they play good cartoons.

    You need to come here on Thursdays for half of stuffed burgers and dance night. Then come here and dance your booty off on Friday and Saturday night as well.

    Stella's Punch, one of the hands down great things. $8 to get you feeling right.

    Their spicy chili rocks! It isn't too spicy but it has a kick so if spice isn't your thing be sure to ask for sour cream!

    They got rid of all their foursquare specials, you cant sit at viceroy and order from stellas so you have to wait an hr for a table and you have to order a drink to get the burger special on thursday

    Poor Man's wings are amazing! "Hot" is more like "blazing" so beware, I'd go with "mild"

    Go to Pyramid Scheme if you are looking for pinball. This place only has 4 machines and they are all janky.

    Vegan hot dog, side of chili. Extensive Ms. Pac Man against your significant other. You have yourself a perfect evening.

    Get solicited by the fat ugly sluts from little darlings in kzoo. No thanks, you can keep your beads. There are enough naked single moms in GR to appreciate that don't charge a cover.

    The best stuffed burgers in town, hands down. Actually, no, you need both of them to get it to your mouth. Open wide!

    Genesee Cream Ale and blessed black wings. Andrew is a sweetpea and nice to look at. Donkey Kong frustrates me but I continue to give it all of my laundry money.

    The best hamburgers in Grand Rapids (surprisingly, because it has a huge veg and vegan menu)

    Andrew is an incredible bartender! Wait til he's out, then chase a shot of Sambuca with a shot of Rumplemins...it'll make your night.

    Try the Spiritual Healing or World Eater sandwiches if you're vegan, and the Stella Blue Stuffed burger if you're not.
