Stark's Steakhouse is always a treat! We love their regular menu but have also really enjoyed the Brazilian BBQ pop-up. Food was fabulous, service professional.

They have done a fantastic job of adjusting to Covid restrictions in the best possible way. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal, the service, and most surprisingly, the ambiance.

We went for my girlfriends bday dinner and I add asked the the host and left a note on the reservation about the birthday and nothing was said or done. Kinda disappointing and I had to ask 3 different waiters for a glass of water. Other then that the staff was nice and food was great

The food, as always, was great. Of all the outdoor dining experiences this was by far the best. Providing a comfortable dining environment when it turns cool is something that other restaurants managed varying degrees of success with but none approached Stark's.

We had an amazing time at the Thanksgiving dinner! We were able to book last minute, which was awesome. The food was delicious, and the service was great! We were a little cold and were sat away from the heater, but overall, we had a delightful time. I’m sure we will be back!

First, we love Starks and all their restaurants. This review specific to Thanksgiving dinner outdoors at Steakhouse. Appetizers and desserts excellent, main course of turkey and prime rib disappointing. Breastmeat dried out, requested more and got the same. Dark meat was just tiny pieces, almost chopped, not as dried out. Prime rib was not in slices, but in tiny chunks and well done. asked for rare and got small pieces that were ok.

still love Starks and all they do. Love the Brazillian BBQ and will continue to support them.

Thanksgiving meal was wonderful! Due to the pandemic we were seated outside (like everyone else) but not all diners were near heaters and some tables were situated poorly. The food was really amazing, everything (the beverages, sides, mains, and desserts) was so phenomenal and presented/plated well.

Thanksgiving dinner was perfect. Service was impeccable. Couldn't have asked for better value, exceptional meal, wonderful and attentive service from Jason. The team at Starks put this together very well in a safe, socially-distanced, high-quality environment. A++

This was our first time at Stark's and will not be our last. My husband and I had an excellent Thanksgiving feast in the parking lot behind Stark's Restaurant. Although we missed our typical large family gathering, I'd have to say the food (and service, lol) was much better at Stark's. The autumn leaves we're beautiful and the music selection was perfect.
Thank you to all the staff who gave up their Thanksgiving so we could have such a pleasant experience during such a difficult time.

We had a great dinner. All the offerings were good. we especially liked Rib-eye, salmon and shrimp. Only way to improve would be to preheat all the cast iron serving pieces so food would have stayed hot longer in outdoor setting.

I went with a group of girls celebrating a birthday dinner. We opted for the Brazilian meat option and it was definitely worth the price. I wish I had a bigger stomach to enjoy more food though. Lol

I have done this bbq all you can eat a few times. All the other times were just fantastic. I couldn’t praise it more. This time however was a huge disappointment. I specifically told the waiter I had a dietary restriction of salt and what starks had done for me before. For instance the potato no added salt and no sauce on the broccoli For example. Don’t get everything on the menu. I never got my potatoes even though I asked repeatedly and had to ask for the broccolini 4 times with no sauce (how hard was that to not put sauce on) before I received it ice cold. I asked for my steak to be well done it came rare. The person I am as with told me that The berry cobbler was so cold it was hard to eat and the chocolate cake was over cooked so the edges were hard as a rocks. I don’t feel like I was listened to. Likely it was a salt issue and nit an allergy. I am so sad to write this review. 😭

The bbq was mediocre. The broccolini was not seasoned and practically flavorless. The food was the same as their happy hour menu. Berry desert was nothing special. Would have paid WAY less than $50 for the quality. Drinks were alright. Music and ambiance was cool. I would only go back for the happy hour.

Fantastic food and service as I always find at ALL the Stark's restaurants. They really went above and beyond for this Brazilian BBQ "pop up" during the pandemic. Our server, Carlos, was kind, friendly and fun. We can't wait to go back. Eat all the choices! :)
