Good, big hamburgers with reasonable prices. Lively bar atmosphere, however the hostess was incompetent/overwhelmed so the wait was lengthy despite many empty tables. Waiters were nice but also seemed to have too much to do. Wait for food also rather lengthy for a hamburger place....More

I am not sure why this place is full of vintage video games, plays 80's music and has old TV shows running yet is full of hipsters who were not alive in the 80's. For those of us who were this is a fun place...More

Pinball! 200 kinds of whiskey and sometimes karaoke make this a nice place to hang. It's a bar in all ways. Long, dark, narrow, and pressed tin high ceilings give this place an old bar feel but it has a lot of 1980s stuff going...More

Ordered the govt cheese and wasn't disappointed. Still the best burger, hands down. Enjoy. Wait was minimal and place was not too crowded for a Saturday afternoon. Service tends to be a bit slow.

Finally got around to check out Stella's. There was about a 20 minute wait for a table which wasn't a big deal. They have a few games that you can play, I would say 10 or so. There were a lot of kids in there...More

I had been told about the burgers and went in skeptical. I have to admit, these probably are the best burgers in Grand Rapids! And at a great price too. The burgers and stuffed burgers include a choice of two types of fries (regular and...More

Beer and a splendid burger in this retro style diner. Old pinball and video games hark back to a misspent youth; graffiti on the tables is encouraged!!
