Diner Reviews
  • "Beautiful room, beautiful view, small but adequate menu, great wine list. Pricey, but not unexpectedly so. What should have been a great experience was minified by a rather indifferent, insincere, impatient waiter. Perhaps we drew a short straw, but a downer none the less."

  • "My husband and I went to Stars to celebrate our anniversary. The service was outstanding and the food was beyond delicious. We ordered the cream of crab soup and it really is the very best that we have ever had. As Marylanders, we tend to be picky about anything with crab and the soup was divine. We have actually gone to the restaurant in the past when we're in the area just for the crab soup! Our meal was over the top. The salmon and crab cake dinners were so tasty and we had the triple cheesecake for dessert. They even wrote "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate on our dessert plate. Lovely dinner and excellent waitstaff. We will definitely return! Everyone addressed us by name and congratulated us on our anniversary."

  • "We had lunch at Stars for my daughter's 14th birthday. It was our second time dining at this establishment and every time we go, everything is perfect. Our server was an extremely pleasant lady who responded to our every desire. We had drinks, lunch and Stars served up a cake that we brought with us. The Chef added berries and a pretty sauce (we still don't know what it was but we licked our plates clean!) They added candles to the cake and we sang Happy Birthday. The view is amazing and even though it was a bit nippy outside, they have huge fire pits and standing heaters so you can sit outside and watch the boats rolling by. It was an amazing experience. Can't wait to return."

  • "My husband & I celebrated our 30th anniversary in St. Michaels & had dinner here one night. We were warmly greeted & given a beautiful window seat overlooking the lawn & water. I had the tasting menu & my husband chose from the a la carte menu. The food was very good except for my filet which was overcooked. I asked for it "pink but warm" while he asked for his medium rare. Think the problem may have been that my smaller portion was sliced horizontally, ilo vertically but maybe the wait staff got the orders mixed up. Either way that was the only disappointment in the food. My only other comment would be that we had dinner in town our 2nd night and the food was equally as good, if not better, and our bill with tip was half a much"

  • "Stars is one great restaurant. Everything we have tried has been for the most part excellent, with a few very goods thrown in. During this visit, our friendly waiter Teddy, was able to recite the daily specials for about five minutes, convincing us to try one instead of the main menu. Our other choices from entree to dessert were exceptional in flavor and appearance. It's a bit pricey, but for a special occasion wonderful. Go there!"

  • "We had our anniversary dinner here with delectable food, but very Impersonable wait staff. Hostess and Maitre'd were very accommodating, but our server was not very pleasant. The views of the Miles River were gorgeous and our soft shell crab and filet were like butter!"

    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Given the ambience at the Inn at Perry Cabin and the prices on the menu, we had high expectations for both food and service and we were sorely disappointed. The server spilled water, oyster liquid, and ice on my husband over the course of the meal. We are quite forgiving, and it could have happened to anyone; however, combined with the lack of attention to our table, slow service (up to 20 minutes between courses), and general lack of attention to detail (never asked how I wanted my steak), we we're put off of our experience as a whole. We expected more from a place that charges upwards of $40 for an entree. Food was good, and though they comp'ed out drinks, it did NOT make up for the poor service experience and we will not be returning."

  • "A very elegant restaurant in great setting with great views of the bay. We went on a Sunday when there were only a handful of tables occupied. Our server had no other tables so service was excellent and the meal was paced perfectly. Overall the meal was excellent, especially our entrees. Our desert (apple pie) was kind of ordinary, but that is not unusual in many high end restaurants. The prices are definitely high but you are paying a premium for the setting and the view. Definitely a place to go for a special occasion."

  • "The food at the Stars is some of the most wonderfully prepared food we've ever had in any restaurant. We had the Chef's Tasting Menu and savored every single dish. The service was impeccable. The atmosphere is relaxing and you have great views of the water. This is one of our favorite restaurants in all of the US and we do travel a lot."

  • "Star restaurant did an excellent job all around to make our 10yr anniversary lunch special. The Choptank oysters were delicious as well as the chef's specials. The price is also extremely reasonable for the high quality food and atmosphere. The wait staff was very accommodating too."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "No issues with food, service or atmosphere. However, $400 for my wife and I to eat good, but not special, food seems high. Halibut and soft shells. Could get soft shells back in Baltimore equally as good at less than half the price. But then again, you don't go here just for the food....."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "There were flies everywhere that landed on our bodies and our food. I read about the fly issue on Trip Advisor but dismissed it. Our server was awful. I ordered an oyster appetizer. The soups came and went, flies and all, but my oysters never arrived. Our server disappeared for long intervals. I read about the slow service on Trip Advisor but dismissed it. I asked her where my oysters were. She said she didn't know I ordered them. The tap water served has an odd taste to it. I read about the water issue on Trip Advisor but dismissed it. For a quality inn this restaurant was lacking-good food, poor and slow service, too high priced for what you get in return. Low class treatment from a supposedly high class venues. People do read reviews."

  • "Little pretention, educated and sophisticated staff with the food that lives up to the standards you expect. I am impressed with how relaxed they are. It puts you at ease as well. I went for brunch and highly recommend."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "For the prices that they charge, the food should have really impressed. My halibut dish was overcooked. The tuna twoway was good but didn't really taste a difference between fhe two ways except in shape of cut. While view of harbor was nice, the character of the place would be improved with fewer tables. They crammed too many in which makes it noisy and hard to serve. Many tables were empty anyway.... probably for good reason. Other items were good but didnt blow me away. Maybe at half the price it would have been fine, but I felt they were pretending to be better than they are."

  • "We went to Stars for lunch because dinner there is so expensive and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing and the service stellar. We had a window seat and the view was awesome. We would definitely visit Stars again in the future."

  • "breakfast amazing as always. really love the salmon plate and the crab omelet was done perfectly today."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Really enjoyed breakfast on our second day of stay at Perry Cabin. The salmon plate was again very good as was the side of berries. The crab omelet was full of tasty crab meat and could have eaten independent of the eggs. Overall still very good and easily the best choice in the area for breakfast."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "My wife and I had a great time dining here but I would say two negatives I had was... 1. The crab cakes were a little dry and overcooked, meanwhile the steak was excellent 2. There should be a no cell phone policy or all phones must be on silent... there was a woman who's phone continued to chirp the whole throughout dinner. I know this is not the restaurants fault but they could have asked her to turn the volume down. I noticed numerous couples irritated by the phone yet she was oblivious to her surroundings."

  • "great view from either inside the restaurant or when eating out on the Terrace. Service is always top notch. We really enjoyed the salmon platter on a bagel as well as the Green Eggs and Ham. Hearty portions and very good. The side of berries was also very good as filled to the top. Breakfast is not cheap but a great start to the day when staying at or visiting the Inn at Perry Cabin"

  • "I thought that everyone was friendly. My husband and I celebrated our 10th Anniversary. Enjoyed the table overlooking the water front. The gardens were beautiful and very well groomed. The food was good. Overall the experience was a positive one. I would come back again."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Sometime before our visit, the restaurant changed owners and names, so it was a bit confusing as to what restaurant we had made our reservation. However, everything was ideal. We didn't get seated by the window, but only because those tables were all occupied before my wife and I arrived for our dinner. We celebrated our honeymoon on Tilghman Island, a short drive from Saint Michael's and this restaurant. The staff was excellent, everyone congratulated my wife and me, and the food was spectacular. I had the softshell crabs special, and my wife had the crab cakes. The tuna two ways starter was superb, and we finished our meal with delicious coffee (served in individual french press pots) and crème brulée. We will definitely return!"

  • "Stayed at the Harbor Inn nearby, unable to get a boat slip here for the holiday. Very limited and only shore power at the end of the T-Dock. Hotel and Grounds were lovely, picture perfect. Stars did not disappoint. First rate chef and pleasant staff. You feel welcome from the moment you walk into the door and its difficult to leave. Most tables have an excellent water view. Even with our 3 year old we found it romantic. St. Michaels would not be the same without Stars and the Inn at Perry Cabin."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The view is outstanding- no question. While the food was solidly good and ingredients fresh, I think it's a little overrated - especially given the prices. Additionally, if you're used to truly outstanding food from cities like New York, Philly or LA, you'll likely have a similar feeling...Overall, you're paying for the unique and beautiful spot."

  • ""Stars" is the new name of the restaurant at the Inn at Perry Cabin. My wife and I had our 35th Anniversary dinner there on 6/28, while staying at the Inn. We had the tasting menu, which was quite innovative. The wine pairings, however, were hit-or-miss. This restaurant's view is just outstanding. We acknowledge that this is a top-of-the-line restaurant, but the believe the entrees were a tad overpriced. Recommend for special occasions."
