Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I wanted to take out my son and girlfriend to a special place since both will be going off to college in the Fall. We were planning to visit friends on the Cape last weekend so we made reservations for this past Sunday and were not disappointed. Everything from the friendly service of their staff to the food--which was fantastic--made this an unforgettable evening. Highly recommended!"

  • "We dined here to celebrate my husband's birthday while on vacation. We both thought the entire meal was outstanding. The tenderloin steak was the best we've had, and we have dined at some of the best restaurants around. Usually there is one food item that is a standout during a meal but everything we ordered was wonderful and cooked perfectly, from the wine to the potatoes to the fish and steak, and dessert. The service was polite and attentive, also. Truly a special, impressive night, and worth every penny."

  • "The food and service at Stars was wonderful. Our waiter Orlando has been serving guests with perfect service for over 24 years. They cut your aged steak to you liking right at the table.The Bearnaise is the best we have ever had."

  • "Would never recommend . The duck was cold and the food does not own up to the other reviews. Much better restaurants around. We ask to call for car service and refused because we were staying in a different hotel. Totally rude would never stay in that place. It has gone down hill."

  • "Nothing negative to say about Stars at the Chatham Bars Inn. The service was top notch, and the food was fantastic. Really nice setting with a view of the ocean. We had tenderloin steak from the meat cart that they bring to your table. You tell them how many ounces you'd like and they cut it and weigh right there. The steak was cooked perfectly per out order. I recommend the Nepoleon for desert. You'd have to see and taste it to believe it. It's a little pricey compared to some restaurants on the Cape, but well worth it, and a great place for special occasions, or if you're trying to impress a special person."

  • "We went to CBI for our 15th anniversary last year and it was so good we decided to do the same again this year. Cory was our waiter and although he was new to the position he gave us great service and was very attentive. We would highly recommend a romantic evening out at this restaurant"

  • "Best crab cake and best tuna tar tar we have ever had (seriously). Steaks cooked perfectly and mouth watering. Hubby said French onion soup was unbelievable. Complimentary Cauliflower soup course was so delish would have licked the bowl had it not been such a fine establishment. All sides ordered were delish. No competition. Wish this restaurant was closer to home!"

  • "My husband and I chose Stars to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed. Our appetizers and entrees were delicious. The crab cake was so good I wish I had ordered two! My husband devoured his steak and shrimp combo. Best of all, the staff went out of their way to make our dining experience a special occasion. It was a very memorable dinner."

  • "If you want the ultimate in food coupled with an almost 'over-attentive" wait staff, this is the place. Gorgeous view of the Atlantic Ocean. We had the Chateau Briand. It was cooked to perfection and very, very tender. A bit pricy but well worth every morsel. The trip from South Yarmouth to Chatham was well worth the drive. If you do not appreciate this restaurant, you do not appreciate fine dining in the truest sense of the word."

  • "While the food at Stars was very good, the service was lacking. We asked to be seated near a window but we were seated no where near a window. The hostess did not try to accommodate our request at all. Our waiter did not welcome us to the restaurant and did not introduce himself. We had to ask for bread to be brought to our table and for our water glasses to be filled. For a four star restaurant, this is not the level of service that is expected. In general, the food was very good but we were very disappointed in the service."

  • "The ambiance and view are spectacular. We ordered rib eye medium rare, by the ounce, as it was offered. Unfortunately, the beef was medium. The manager removed the charge from our bill but, we would have enjoyed the whole evening more if the entree had been prepared as ordered. The onion rings were spectacular. Our wait for food was very long. It was the season's opening weekend which probably contributed to that as well. We will certainly try STARS again with the hope that the issues have been worked out."

  • "The view was great and the food was fine for what it is, but not at all creative or interesting. You could get two good meals elsewhere for the prices."

  • "A warm welcome, gracious service, excellent food, artfully plated. The room is beautifully appointed, casually elegant, with spectacular views. The service is very attentive, somewhat proper but not at all pretentious. Our server was quite knowledgable and paced the meal to our rhythm. And the food was truly spectacular. Vegetables from their garden, sauces that enhanced rather than overwhelmed, prime meats, seasonal seafood. Our desserts were artwork. A very special experience."

  • "The food was incredible, great atmosphere, the wine was expensive, but the food was well worth the price. Would go earlier next time and enjoy a drink out on the veranda before dinner. The place is right across the street from the ocean."

  • "Classy resort casual dining. Beautiful water views. Food is delicious and well prepared. Service is outstanding. Orlando was our delightful waiter. Pricey but clearly worth it. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Lucky to live so close, we haven't been here for dinner however under the new ownership. Stars was the perfect setting to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Our waiter Orlando was superb and made the evening really special. Tuna tartar and a salad for appetizers; veal chops, surf (aged beef) and turf as the main course. No room for deserts...only coffees. Everything is very pricey but it was worth it. "

Due to the elegant and stately feel of Stars, patrons were well dressed. It was nice to see gentlemen in suit jackets. The overall meal was very well prepared. The quality and preparation of beef was outstanding. Food was also displayed nicely and dessert was fabulous. We will be recommending to anyone looking for a special occasion restaurant."

  • "WOW! What a beautiful venue, only matched by its service (our sever Orlando is the BEST!) and the food. NYC reviewer here and this Chatham gem holds its own against the very best steakhouses in NYC have to offer. Can only imagine dining here in the summer looking out over the sunset on the water......"

  • "Stars is in Chatham Bars Inn, which by itself is a gorgeous venue. The onion soup was the best I've had in a long time. Very cheesy and delicious. The main meal, Ribeye with sauteed mushrooms was a greasy disappointment. That may be because I chose mushrooms as my side instead of a potato. Between the two there was a grease field on my plate. Very unappetizing. I also am not a fan of having the side of raw beef carved at my table. I am a beef lover, but don't need the reminder that it was once a live animal, just before I eat. It was my husbands birthday and they without any prompting delivered a very lovely cookie and praline dessert with happy birthday written in chocolate. Very nice."

  • "My dining experience at Stars was spectacular! From the moment we walked in, the service was amazing. Our sever was attentive and knowledgable. My husband and I were there celebrating his 40th birthday. My husband has food allergies and the staff was more than accommodating, but in a subtle way. Our food was delicious! I would highly recommend Stars to anyone looking for a nice dinner. I can't wait to return!"

  • "I cannot say enough about Stars. The food was excellent, the waiting staff very attentive but not so much to be bothersome, the ubiqutious smiles... The only possible negative comment I can have about Stars is the price of the meals; however, you do get what you pay for. I certainly will return."

  • "The Chatham Bars Inn was elegantly decorated for Christmas. The service was exceptional. Our prime rib was perfect. The crab cake was moist and delicious. In fact, the best crab cake we have ever had and we are from Maryland. The lobster was fantastic! The Napoleon was both creative and fabulous! Truly, an outstanding dinner in an elegant, festive setting."

  • "One;word: AMAZING. Beakfast buffet was to die for, so many choices, & all delicious! Id consider driving down to the cape just for it. Dinner was fantastic as well. I had a special on the recommendation of the very knowledable Orlando (23 year server); it was to die for. Also, the meat is definitely a fantastic choice as well. Definitely a must try."
