I was in the Twin Cities a few weeks ago with some people who had visited Stella’s Fish Cafe in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis. My mind immediately went to lobster roll.
It’s pretty much a perfect sandwich, with a generously buttered split-top bun, crunchy bits of celery and tender pieces of lobster slathered with mayo.
Stella’s has a cool vibe, with a ton of seating on the main floor and upstairs. You can get fresh fish, whole Maine lobsters, crab, oysters, sushi and more.
We started with a side of Stella’s mac and cheese. It’s a four cheese cream sauce with applewood smoked bacon. I thought it was alright, nothing overly special.
I had the lobster roll that came with some delicious and crispy fries. Another got the fish and chips.
I thought the roll was great, having everything that a proper lobster roll has (see above). The fish and chips, though, were not all that great.
But Stella’s is definitely a good bet for seafood lovers stuck in ocean-deprived Minnesota.
Have you had the Roll at 1029/Smack Shack? If you love the Lobster roll, definitely need to try it sometime (I suggest going to the bar, they actually charge a little less)
Thanks! I’ve heard of Smack Shack and it’s on my list!
