Simpsonville's version of fine dining. Excellent new south cuisine from farm to table. This is not your grandmother's cooking. Refined and comforting. Try the greens. Pricey but worth it.

Had lunch at Stella's today. One word, outstanding. Service, food, atmosphere, the whole package. We were with a group of eight, by there comments they would all be in agreement with me. I had the pork trio and my wife had the fried green tomato blt. Here there is no such thing as a boring lunch menu. I have heard... More

We recently had dinner at Stella's for a belated Mother's Day celebration. We considered going to one of the better known restaurants in downtown Greenville but decided to give Stella's a try as it was much more convenient. We are glad that we decided to do so. The owners have a good background in successful new southern cooking restaurants such... More

Excellent meal, superb service and super-friendly staff. Only the freshest of foods from local farms were used. A great mix of flavors to please any palate. Well worth paying a bit more.

Invited to dinner by another couple that suggested Stellas. I had never heard of it before. It is not impressive from street or on initial inside impression. However, once you sit down, the places starts to feel like a Southern bistro should. Not fancy but warm and comfortable. We had the best server I have ever had. She was great.... More

We have been here twice. Originally came for lunch but this time for a belated Mothers Day in the evening. Wow, it is a lot more expensive in the evenings. Caution persons with moderate incomes to go for lunch and leave evenings for "special occasions". Food and drink was exceptional, especially the New York Strip Steak was the best us... More

Once again, my wife and I ate at Stella's. We find the staff to be outstanding with leadership from Julia and Jeena. From the moment you enter you're made to feel special and not just another customer that will fill a seat. Each table is visited by Julia, Jeena or both, servers say hello as they walk by your table... More

Ate here several months ago and wasn't impressed. Went again last week hoping for a better experience with the food. The service is exceptional, but there is no atmosphere and food is so-so. I mentioned dining here during a conversation with co-workers. Two of them had also dined at Stella's and they didn't enjoy their dining experience either. Maybe this... More

I have eaten at Stella's twice now and I am very impressed by the décor, service and food. At my recent visit, my guests had the meatloaf wrapped in bacon and I had the wedge salad with chicken. We also had the pimento cheese plate which had fried green tomatoes and picked okra with it. All the meals were very,... More
