Watered down tequila

The food was Excellent. I ordered the seared mahi mahi along with the cheese platter. The only thing that I can complain are their drinks. I ordered a couple of shots of tequila and to my disappointment it seamed to have been watered down. Who adds water to tequila?

We are fond of farm-to-table restaurants, and a recent visit to Stella's Southern Bistro rewarded us with excellent food and great service. The wine list was ample, beer selection good (but not great--add some more craft beers). The four of us shared an outstanding heirloom tomato salad and fried okra for starters, and each went with good choices for dinner:... More

The food is such a nice change of pace from the regular offerings in Simpsonville. Locally sourced and so fresh, with a nice variety of southern cuisine. Great wine selection and relaxed atmosphere.

Great burger with pimento cheese for lunch. Staff was friendly and very attentive. It is gluten friendly which is a plus!

Wait staff was good. Food excellent. Great place for a quiet meal. Was a little pricy for a lunch time meal.

If you want fresh local cuisine, this is for you. They use only top quality local product. It's very well done with a little twist ingredient. It's a little pricey but it's worth it. I will not go with kids. So far we went for a date.

Been to brunch once and dinner several times. Always try something different because the menu is unique and different very often. Very fresh and well prepared food. All of the servers are very helpful but don't bother you too much.
