Attended a fund-raising dinner which was absolutely delicious and went back the next day for the breakfast buffet. Can't leave hungry! Oh so good.

Who would expect such a nice little eatery in tiny Stockton, IL? The place is very attractive in a period building. The food is great. I had some of the best chicken tortilla soup I've had anywhere (and I'm from the Southwest). Prices are reasonable...More

We went for lunch on a Sunday when they close early for the day (3 PM), not arriving until almost 2 PM. But the service was good and we never felt rushed to finish and leave. The food was good, but nothing spectacular, and the...More

Thank you for coming to Stella's. We attempt to meet everyone's taste and sometimes that isn't 100% accomplished. Sorry the bisque was rich but it is one of our best sellers so odds are we won't be changing it, but we offer other soups and...More
