A fun unique and kitschy kind of place. Always a fun place to eat. Wait Staff is MOST Attentive One of my favorite spots in Iowa city..
Great breakfast food, especially the hash browns, and great burgers! The pie shakes are simply outstanding, a must if you are stilling hankering for dessert. Recently featured on Campus Eats on the Big Ten Network. It is a unique home town eatery, if you are traveling through Iowa City, stop you won't be disappointed.
We loved the food; the hash browns were delicious as was the pie shake! We look forward to stopping there again soon!
Took 20+ minutes for drinks. A couple dishes ordered never came out. Food was pretty good, but not worth the wait.. :/
Looks great when you walk in, but the food is microwaved, and most days the servers suck and ignore you. For all the hype and fame, the food is awful. It was OKAY 10 years ago, but never got any better, just worse.
The atmosphere right off the bat is so inviting! You walk into a retro chic dining experience from the decor to flatware. When my mother-in-law sat down we simply picked what was closest to us as we walked in but everything was so comfortable and clean!! I was greeted at the table with pleasant memories from childhood with the vintage flatware from home and grandma's house! They use mismatch dishes and flatware on practically everything. I was instantly transported into a good ace
Love, love, love this place. Burger...veggie, beef, chicken - salads, pizzas, Cajun, the crab cake app was yummy. Desserts...did I mention desserts??? Absolutely amazing desserts. The have a nice selection of beer, wine, and mixed drinks. The atmosphere is almost pub-like. Tall-backed wooden booths that are surprisingly comfortable, lower lighting, or you can sit outside undercover during decent weather. If you haven't been yet, get to Stella's, the people are friendly and very helpful!
Wast of money!!!!!We went there today, out server did not refill drinks, did not do her job. We found hair in out food. The food has little or no taste. Everything must have come from a can. Nuthing is "Homemade" as they clam. Everything really sucked and we will never go back. We got sick from eating there. We spoke with a manager who did not even care about how we felt about the taste of the food or anything.
Ok food, but need better service. Everytime I go there, something is wrong with my order.
This was long over due. You need to step inside because the outside does not let you know what to expect. Great drinks, specials and $2 desserts!
