About Stella’s Black Dog Tavern

Welcome to Stella’s Black Dog Tavern! Named after Plymouth’s most beloved pup, we are proud to be a full-service restaurant and bar serving families, private parties, and friends throughout the Plymouth community. We serve fresh, local food prepared by our skilled culinary team. Many items on our menu are made from scratch including all our soups, daily specials, chicken strips, and others. In fact, a lot of these recipes come from Bob’s and Dorothy’s families and our chefs’ families. If we wouldn’t serve it to our families, we sure aren’t going to serve it to you and your families!

Stella was a service dog and led a remarkable life. She worked tirelessly at the VA Hospital in Ann Arbor and other hospitals. Through her birthday parties we raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Humane Society of Huron Valley, Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit, the Dogtopia Foundation, Plymouth District Library, and the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce to name a few. She was well loved by children of all ages and their folks and grandparents. But no one loved her like we did.

Stella’s Magic is committed to serving veterans and disadvantaged animals. As she did in her lifetime, we plan to continue going forward.

Much love,

Bob and Dorothy Ostendorf
