  • "It was nice to experience such excellent service in a beautiful setting. The dining staff was pleasant, attentive and professional. 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......"

  • "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!"

  • "Dinner was great. The exception being the oysters tasted rather fishy and I was violently ill for the entire night following."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "My whole family absolutely loves Stars. It is our favorite special occasion place to go. The service, the food, the ambience...all are fantastic!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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)."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "The steak was delicious and our server extraordinary in his attentiveness, but our night was made unexpectedly stressful in light of the hotel's unwillingness to provide Wi-fi access todiners. Stars is in a remote location with poor cell service, and while tthis usually is not a significant issue, on this particular night I had the need to be accessible to my young son and clients by phoneand e-mail. Our server bent over backwards in an effort to assist, even offering his own phone, but ultimately our evening had to be abbreviated in light of the hotel's inability to assist, even in view of our several hundred dollar tab. Neither sophisticated not hospitable in our view, which is why we cannot recommend this otherwise terrific restaurant."

  • "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 !"

  • "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."

  • "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."
