Great shrimp and grits

The atmosphere is really nice if its an intimate dinner or lunch with the girls. The shrimp and grits were perfect. They had great flavor and the shrimp were cooked perfectly. Attentive service.

I have been going to Stella's for over 5 years. Their food is fabulous. Their menu has great selections and changes to accommodate what's fresh in season and complements the season. They use local produce and purchase from local farms. Every meal I've ever had has been nothing but delicious. Their steaks are always delicious and cooked as I order.... More

Stella's represents everything that the South SHOULD be. Fresh local produce, meats, and even dairy products are masterfully combined to create Southern dishes in their purest form. After spending some time marveling at the Chef's ability to meld various flavors and textures, relax even further with a mason jar full of Simpsonville Lemonade. No matter what you are in the...

I had an appointment in Simpsonville and we decided to eat a late lunch (the main meal for us today). I looked at Trip Advisor and found this as #1. I understand why it is #1. Walking in I immediately had a good feeling as the inside décor made you feel relaxed. I had already looked at the menu from... More

This is our favorite restaurant for date night. Or any night really. It's an amazing place to eat. We frequently go.

Wonderful fresh, locally sourced food. Nice beer and wine selections. The service was outstanding. I had the shrimp and grits. Husband had pork loin wrapped in bacon with stuffed quail. This dinner was definitely a highlight of our 16 day road trip. Highly recommend!

When Stella's first opened, I had a couple of lunches there and was only moderately impressed. Our pastors seemed to enjoy it, so my wife and i gave it a second chance and were floored by the food and the service. As all of my family has a birthday in March, I decided a visit to Stella's was in order.... More

Go around lunch time for this local treat as it is much nicer in a quiet atmosphere, prices are a little high but expected and certainly worth the quality. Try everything you can, especially the brie.

Arrived about 12:30 on a Friday, made reservations en route and were seated immediately in a booth. Environment was quiet, pristine, fresh, clean, intimate. Ordered Tile Fish croquettes, companion had sauteed flounder and Crustless chocolate Torte (but left off the raspberry drizzle). Meal was excellent. Food was tasty, but portions were small. Menu is a la carte, even for lunch.... More
