Impeccable service and food
Impeccable service and food with a great wine list. View of the outer beach and Atlantic Ocean a wonderful. Very nice to go out for dinner and actually have a trained wait staff. Have already recommended to many people.

Excellent food. Attentive
Excellent food. Attentive but not overbearing service. We dined in the off season, so we can't judge how the restaurant fares in-season when it's much busier, but the entire staff was informative and welcoming. A nice touch was the dessert lounge. For some, watching the composition of the dessert plate on video will be fun. We enjoyed more the intimacy of the smaller room, which signifies relaxation at its finest. Be prepared to have the manager stop by to make sure your evening is satisfactory; it's that kind of place.

A really nice steakhouse in
A really nice steakhouse in a beautiful location. The dry aged steak is amazing. The crabcake was also a delicious starter with good amount of crab and flavoring that enhanced the crab flavor, didn't overpower it. The restaurant is nice without being overly stuffy and the prices are in line with a really nice steakhouse. The wine list was nice with options at different price points. Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive. Overall a really nice place for a special dinner.

Great experience. Unusual
Great experience. Unusual for the lower cape. The service was fantastic. The server was very formal but yet playful and able to joke with us, without the service suffering. I worked at CBI 20+ years ago. A lot has changed but not the main dining room. It seems dated to me and in need of some new touches.

The food was amazing. The
The food was amazing. The presentation alone was worth the cost! The service was great except for a little delay in the kitchen for our entrees, which didn't bother us because we were in no rush and wanted a leisurely dinner. It is definitely a high end restaurant. The menu is a bit pricey, but we thought it was totally worth it. We had a wonderful evening and talked about how great the food was the entire weekend!

Our entire night was absolutely perfect! The food was incredible and a true experience. My husband selected his steak from a cart rolled over to the table to pick his cut and size. I ordered the fresh swordfish, and it was the best I have ever had! Our server Orlando made us feel like family that has been coming for years, even though it was our first time there. We enjoyed a late dinner, so it was dark but the view of the ocean would have been incredible. I cannot say enough about our dinner, and look forward to coming back!

Excellent service, presentation
Excellent service, presentation and innovative food. Nice touches with the amuse of a portion of very tasty spicy soup and an intensely flavored little fruit stick before the desert.

A Delightful Dining Experience
A perfect evening of great food and outstanding service in an extraordinary setting. Chatham Bars has truly kicked it up. A great concept, with steaks carved to your specification table side. A warm welcome and the most professional service from Dean, who anticipated our every need. Food cooked simply and perfectly and presented beautifully. Go before sunset to enjoy the spectacular view.

Table with a View
Celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary at this restraurant. Had a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean. Staff was very attentive. Food was excellant. This was definately a steak restraurant but we splurged and had lump crab cake for a great surf and turf dinner. Streak was melt in your mouth and the crab cake was light and full of crab. Would definately recommend this to anyone.

My husband and I stayed at The Chatham Bars and had dinner in STARS the first night we were there. Our table was in front of a window with an incredible view looking out over the bars and Atlantic Ocean. We loved our waiter (Dean) who was knowledgeable and personable. And the food was delicious! It was a memorable dining experience.

We had a wonderful evening at Stars-we started out on the terrace with a drink overlooking Chatham Sound-just gorgeous. Went inside to our lovely table overlooking the water. Our waiter, Orlando, was fabulous. All of our meals were delicious and served to perfection. The wait staff was great and the desserts were as well. We loved it so much that we are going back for my daughter's 16th birthday dinner in a couple of weeks.

Outstanding ambiance and food
STARS was excellent. We had 3 couples all of whom enjoyed the evening. The food was great and our waiter Lenny was the BEST! While primarily a steakhouse now, Stars had a variety of alternatives for those who prefer fish, poultry, or other things.

Best dining experience hands down
Amazing from start to finish. Service was incredible,great view and a private dessert room to finish up your meal. You will not be disappointed. Guaranteed

Food was great...service wasn't so
All the food we had was outstanding but you do pay the price for it. The beef is great...the best we've had anywhere. However, it took our steaks over an hour to come out after we finished our salad, and we barely received an apology from the manager when we shared it with him. Picking you steak size is a little challenging unless you've done it before because they cut it at your table. My wife wanted a 4oz filet when she told the cutter to stop he said no that is only 3oz and proceeded to add some to it. Turns out it was 6 oz. I took that one but when he cut the next one which was supposed to be 4oz it was 6 as well because the beef was a little bigger. No concession was made to cut a smaller one so we were stuck with the larger one

a wonderful discovery
we have dined thousand times looking at the Atlantic Ocean from the "other" shore (Europe); we were very happy indeed to change places and have a very special celebration at Chatham Bars Inn. The dining experience was absolutely superb. The table arrangement is simple but elegant. The food presentation was fantastic but above all, the flavors were truly a discovery. My guests were enchanted and impressed with the quality of food and the friendly and profesional service.
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was truly one of the best meals we have had in a very long time. The food was simply excellent, the service fantastic, and the location was breath taking. Can't wait to go back!
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Simply The Best!
We heard there was a new chef here. While the former chef was very good, this new chef unbelievable. This is the BEST meal we've ever had! I had roasted lobster, my son had the duck and my husband had the flounder special. The appetizers and salads were delicious and the desserts were amazing as well as the presentation for each. (crem brûlée, chili sorbet and Grapefruit sorbet). We are here for two weeks and will eat here several times. The staff was very welcoming and had a bottle of our absolute favorite wine (Rombauer Chardonnay) chilled and waiting for us. Great job!

An exquisite setting for a wonderful dinner. STARS is a lovely formal setting with a magical sea view. Our dinners were delicious and beautifully presented by a most courteous and professional staff.

5 stars for STARS
It seemed odd going to a steak restaurant while in the Cape, but it has its share of seafood as well. STARS has an interesting menu and the service was excellent. Wine list didn't match actual stock and staff seem either less empowered or new, but all tried to provide a nice evening for us and it showed. STARS is likely the most high-end restaurant in Chatham. We would go back again!
Chateaubriand, Oysters Rockefeller, Tuna Poke... I understand the chef was with the Four Seasons in Lanai beforehand. Price tag is a bit high.... be forewarned.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The wine , food , service, view were 5 star. We would recommend Star for any night that you want to enjoy a special evening out. Very romantic..!!! Hoping to go again soon.

A fine dining experience
From start to finish, the meal was well prepared, presented, and served! While not necessarily inexpensive, we had a very enjoyable dining experience at STARS. Over the course of a two week trip to New England, food presentation was probably the best. The custom cuts of beef were well prepared but order a little less than you think that you want. If you are still hungry, then you still have room for the deserts. Our only regret is that we did not stay on the property as it is very nice as well! Well recommended!

This was our first time at
This was our first time at Stars. Everyone said it would be a great dining experience and it was. The food, service and view were spectacular. We celebrated our anniversary and my wife's birthday and was a wonderful experience. Everything was first first class and we will visit some time in the future.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a wonderful place
This was a wonderful place to dine. Our table was meticulously set. The view was lovely our wait server was very helpful. My only recommendation would be that the diners were a bit larger. Saying that we were satisfied when the evening was over. We will return..
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great but not as polished!
Something seemed a little off this experience. Stars clearly articulates a very reasonable and welcomed dress code. However, it was NOT enforced! If collared button down shirts are required, then why are polo shirts allowed? This, as with many things today, lowers the bar. Service was attentive to a point and then quickly declined. I think our waiter was overwhelmed. A very polished experience is expected from the Chatham Bars Inn. This one missed the mark a bit.

We went to chatham for 3 days and had some nice meals. this was by far the best and wasn't as expensive as I expected.

Great view and amazing food.
Great view and amazing food. Especially liked the ability to pick the cut and size of steaks. Had drinks and dessert on the outdoor patio after dinner and enjoyed the sea air.

Great Cape Cod Dining Experience
The Room and view were amazing. We celebrated a birthday and the staff was very attentive to the Celebrant. Two of us tried a Lobster Special where the Captain added the natural lobster juices to the meat prior to serving. The result was excellent and still simple. The rest of the party were also very pleased.
Although no one had beef, we all were impressed by the beef cart where you could pick the size portion you wished. We will be back.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went there for our Anniversary and it was wonderful, fabulous food and wonderful staff, they even had a card on the table for us wishing us a Happy Anniversary, waiters looked great in their white jackets, while our waiter did not hover over us, he always seemed to know when to appear to ask if we needed another drink, to clear off the table,etc,my husband had the filet from the meat cart and you could almost cut it with a butter knife, I had the Wild Alaskan Salmon and it was fabulous! The Chefs surprise dessert was wonderful, she even brought it out to the table herself! wonderful place and we will go back again !
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We all, thoroughly, enjoyed our meals. It is extremely expensive.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose to have a special night out during a visit to the Cape, and Stars was a great location for it! Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was outstanding. The cut-to-suit steaks were particularly tasty!

STARS tries really, really hard
We had a GREAT dining experience this year at STARS at Chatham Bars Inn. Their updated format and attention to detail speaks to their attempt to bring a world-class experience back to the Cape. On the whole it works: we had incredible service and a memorable dining experience. A Mourvedre from Provence to accompany seafood? Theirs worked deliciously. Have you ever been to a 4-star Michelin restaurant and felt really cared for? I had it happen one other time from this one - that's how special it was for me. Only miss of the meal was in the desserts. It's as if they hired an Asian/Fusion/New Age pastry chef. While the offerings were interesting, they seem a bit out of step with the rest of the menu. All in all, a great experience for us all.

A stunningly beautiful spot.
A stunningly beautiful spot. Great attention to detail. The staff is extraordinarily polite. Wait staff is very well informed about the menu and wine choices. Amuse bouche to start was very tasty and unusual. An exceptional Caesar salad. Swordfish was fine but have had better, larger, elsewhere. Evening's special Surf and Turf was a step up from normal with jumbo shrimp, sea scallops ( a tad undercooked) and a pleasant filet. Avant garde dessert but delicious!

This place by far is the best place I have ever dined. The ambiance - the view - the service - and the food was the greatest.

One of the best meals I had
One of the best meals I had on the Cape this season. I had the lamb chops. Great cut of meat, well-seasoned and well-cooked. Served piping hot. Very nice.

Expensive but Worth It
Expensive menu, but the food was well prepared, the wine list was abundant, and the scenery (ocean view) was outstanding. The decor was a little on the old side and the ambiance quieter, but the CBI is an older institution so you would expect an older style ambiance, but it is by no means out of date. Perfect place for a special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.), and be prepared (i.e. save) for a large check, but at least you get what you pay for.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have a very pleasurable
We have a very pleasurable experience - enjoying our côte de bœuf for two - 30 ounce bone in rib eye cooked perfectly (med-rare) then sliced and served table side. We added a supplement of Foie Gras along with a cream garlic blue cheese sauce to finish off the beef. Highly recommend this entree and the restaurant.

Worst Treatment at a Restaurant
This is a difficult review because we liked the food, but our initial treatment was so poor that we would never go back. We dine out regularly in many cities using Open Table. Never have we had the maitre"d make such a demeaning treatment of us. We were staying at the resort and had reservations for 7:00. We arrived ten minutes early. The maitre'd said since we were ten minutes early, he must make us honor our reservation for 7:00. He led us to a small seating area to the side of the restaurant. There were lots of vacant tables, but we couldn't be seated. We felt like we were being punished because we dared to be a little early. I can't believe any restaurant would allow such treatment.

Best steak anywhere
I have eaten excellent steaks around the country, but my New York strip at STARS beat them all hands-down. Cuts of NY strip, tenderloin, and rib-eye are kept in a chilled cart and brought to the table. You pick your portion size, tell them how you want it cooked, and choose a sauce (we chose the red wine reduction). The meat is cut and weighed table-side and then taken to the kitchen to be cooked. My medium-rare was just red at the center, grilled nicely on the outside. My husband's medium was pink in the center; both were almost fork-tender. The accompaniments were delicious as well: fingerling potatoes, Caesar salads, and a cold dessert "soup" that defies description and is totally satisfying. It doesn't get any better than this!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A lovely dining experience.
A lovely dining experience. Service was awesome, Dean was a delight! He recommended a fabulous pinot noir to complement our meals. Just wonderful!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dined at Stars on our first evening in Cape Cod. The restaurant is at the renowned Chatham Bars Inn, where we were staying. From the moment that we entered the elegant dining room to the time we left our table, we had impeccable service. The food was well presented and delicious. We definitely recommend this restaurant to all who are looking for a special evening in Chatham!

A Good Night Out
My wife and I enjoyed our dinner at Stars. Service was very good, the food was very well prepared. I like the fact you can cut to order your steak and are not limited to cuts that are either too small or too big. Excellent wine selection, ambiance, and view (as long as you get a table near the windows overlooking the bay).

Fantastic Anniversary Dinner
The Staff and our waiter at STARS were very attentive. The restaurant is lovely and was perfect for our special occasion. My husband had the steak, cut and cooked to order. I had the duck, both were really excellent. The meal was paced well, very artful desserts and approachable wine list. We had a great dinner!
