Lots of Vegan Options

Lots of vegan options that don’t need modification. They also have a Meatless Monday promotion with half off select vegan meals. The vegan nachos were very good!

Had the chickpea wings and the fried avocado. Both were heavy and too oily. Cute place caters to a younger college crowd.

Incredible vegan wings!

Stella’s was recommended to me by a vegan friend, and specifically for the vegan wings. I was completely shocked at how incredible the food was, and the vast amount of vegan options available! The vegan options are some of the most creative that I’ve seen at a restaurant offering both vegan and non-vegan options! The staff was friendly, helpful, and attentive. The service was incredibly fast! The ambiance was second yo none! A very incredible atmosphere! I’ll definitely be back!

Pros: The vast amount of vegan options , Great food, Friendly staff

Mondays 1/2 off veggie food!

They have a meatless Monday deal for 1/2 off the price of a bunch of veggie foods - including Veggie Supreme which is like a vegan fancy Taco Bell Crunchwrap- which I thought was amazing. The poor man wings were just spiced potato wedges and were not my favorite - a plus though is you can ask for 1/2 of favor so we got 1/2 BBQ and 1/2 Buffalo. Staff super friendly and knowledgeable about vegan options.

Pros: Clear vegan menu and knowledgeable staff, Great deals for vegans Monday , Veggie Supreme

Cons: Poor man wings

Delicious 😋

Ate here while in town for Art Prize. A small wait while we had a drink at the bar. 2 of us shared the Full Monte nachos, Hippie Stuffed black bean & lentil burger, & Poor Man's Potato Wings hot buffalo style. Nachos was a generous portion of toppings that left you with few dry chips, Potato Wings..I would return to GR just for these. Seems they're battered & fried slathered in the hot sauce. Burger was good but quite fragile. Pieces of it dropped out each time I took a bite. Service was good & they moved us from a 2-person table to larger as soon as 1 was available to accommodate our 3 dish share plan!

Pros: Many great vegan options, Good service, Fair prices

Cons: Tasty but VERY fragile black bean/lentil burger

Great food, options keep growing

I started eating Stella's about 1-2 years ago and I keep coming back for the poor man's wings. I love how they have not only vegan food but vegan sauces too, you can't have BBQ wings without some ranch and they have 2 vegan ranches to choose from. I have really enjoyed the sweet potato wrap for my meal as well.

Recently they added even more vegan options, and last night I tried the newly added Skrimp rangoon mac cheese which was amazing! They also added a vegan chorizo meal which I'll be trying next time.

Highly recommend this place if you're looking to satisfy your savory (good for your soul) side!

Pros: Many vegan options including sauces, Even a vegan dessert option, Really tasty food

Cons: If you're not into crowds order take out it , Not the place to go for healthy foods

Interesting take on bar food

Poor man’s wings (breaded and fried potatoes) were so good I’ll be dreaming of them later. Loved the vegan ranch and my husband said the Hawaiian impossible burger he had was the best burger he’s had in years. I didn’t really like the fake meat they put on the nachos? But it was pretty good other than that. Vegan Brownie was delicious.

Tasty Vegan Options

The nachos were outstanding. And the sweet potato burrito was also great. The vegan ranch brought both the meals together. Def would come back for the nachos.

Pros: Vegan options easily marked on menu

Delightful find!

I had the Mission Impossible Hawaii burger, which had pineapple and bbq sauce on a pretzel bun. They just started offering ice cream sandwiches for dessert. I had the only vegan option and it was AMAZING!!! Great atmosphere. I’d go back!

Good food

We got the chickpea wings and the steak sandwich and one of their burgers. Really good food. The chronic fries were amazing. It was nice to have great options at a bar. Order the chickpea wings with the “hot” flavor.

Pros: Good food, Friendly service

Vegan comfort food

5 out of 5 stars for the vegan options! Atmosphere was super cool, staff was friendly and everything was reasonably priced. My mom, sister and are all vegan and were blown away by the Ted Avocado Nuggets and chick(pea) wings (my family who isn't vegan tried them and loved them as well)! The avocado nuggets were super crispy and the avocado ranch was so flavorful. We tried every flavor of the wings and enjoyed each one equally! The Mission Impossible burger sounded amazing but they were out of the patties. We will go back everytime we are in Michigan to visit family forsure.

Pros: Inexpensive! So many options!

Chickpea wings and so much more!

By far the best buffalo ‘wings’ I’ve had since being a vegan for about a year or so. Great bar located in downtown Grand Rapids. Lots of options including vegan ranch, impossible burger, tempeh ‘bull steak’ sandwich, and tons of vegan appetizers. Definitely recommend!!

Pros: Chickpea wings, Lots of options , Reasonably priced

Burgers, and rings, and ranch! Oh my! 5/5

Trying to leave 5 out of 5 stars and the app is having issues.

If you like onion rings order the vegan onion rings! They are Amazing! They are hand battered and crispy. Oily, so if you don't like oil then pass or just pat them with a napkin. They are so worth it! Get ranch or avocado ranch too. It's vegan and it's amazing.

We ordered the chickpea wings in bbq and mild with ranch for an appetizer which were delicious. Idk what kind of magic they are making happen with that ranch. It is fantastic. I've been vegan now for 2 years and this is by far the best vegan ranch I've tried.

Impossible burger for dinner. It's bonkers. I was a little nervous about it but our bartender was awesome and before I even said anything he let me know that it is 100% vegan and told me how people have called to check when ordering take out. It's so good. Hands down could fool a carnivore.

11/10 Will be back and bring some non vegans to try the vegan options next time.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Friendly staff, Decent prices

Favorite bar food

A good third of the menu is vegan. Multiple appetizers (poor man wings being my favorite), sandwiches, burgers (now featuring the impossible burger), and brunch too. Serves a wide variety of whiskey and plays retro TV shows. Great place to go out with friends.

Shockingly good

For a little bar there was a pretty extensive amount of vegan options! I got the chickpea wings with fries and my friend had the meatloaf. The wings were so good and nothing like I would have expected. The fries are seasoned sooo well and their ranch 🤤 The meatloaf was good too!! Tasted like Thanksgiving. All around an awesome meal, not too overpriced and our server was really nice.

Pros: Many options, Cool atmosphere, Really kind staff

Great All Around

Super fun comic themed atmosphere, and amazing staff. I'm obsessed with their seasoned fries and vegan ranch. Their vegan options are amazing- stuffed burgers, chicken sandwiches, and nachos among the ones I tried.

Pros: Amazing vegan options

Cons: The fries are addictive

love Stella’s

My favorite hangout spot! Love the atmosphere and decor, the Stella’s punch is amazing and their vegan burgers and spicy ‘chicken’ wings in vegan ranch are to DIE for. Sometimes the food makes me feel a little sick though - I have a sensitive stomach and their food can be pretty oily
