A bit staid and old fashioned in design but food is classic and well prepared.
Staff was energetic as there appeared to be a lack of help on the night I was there.

Lovely room and fine service but mediocre food at five star prices: started with a tuna sashimi appetizer which was bland and uninspired; second course, a carrot cavatelli, was actually excellent and flavorful; main course, a special-of-the-day monkfish with shellfish and tomato broth, was tasteless and somewhat dry. A couple of dishes ordered by friends were well-liked, but overall the food was extremely disappointing given the reputation, style and price point. The restaurant did write off charges for a few of the dishes we pointed out as unsatisfactory, but that didn't turn a mediocre dinner into a good meal.

We love Chatham Bars Inn and were looking forward to a great dining experience at Stars. Unfortunately our waiter was inattentive at best; wine glasses left empty, a wait for sharing plates with our dessert, and no follow-up with an after-dinner drinks menu or even an offer of coffee or tea with dessert.

Our server was less than thrilled to be waiting on us. She commented that she was very warm in there. She did not offer any gluten-free options, knowing that we had a celiac diner. Definitely would not go back for another meal. Not the four-star experience we were hoping to find.

The absolute best place to dine on the Cape. Literally, farm to table, each and every dish was delicious. It ain't cheap, but well worth your dining dollars!

Incredible food, ordered the yellowfin crudo, cucumber musk melon salad, risotto and seared local fish. All were incredible and the service was impeccable. The menu is limited but each dish delivers. Praline and stone fruit dessert were meal highlights and some of the most unique and best desserts my family has ever enjoyed.

Amazing location, great drinks, tasty food and great service. You will receive all four of these when you go to CBI Stars. We sat staring at the picturesque Cape Cod Bay, watching seals play by the boats, drinking great cocktails. The food was excellent - we had the clams and salad to start followed by our main of the lobster flambe which they make at your table. Our waitress was very helpful and checked in at all the right times. Know that CBI has its own farm, so all of the produce is fresh and comes from there. Anything else, they try to use local as much as possible. I highly recommend!

We use to love this restaurant but it is feeling a little dated and
high prices are just not reflected in the quality of the food. Service is outstanding and Pete our waiter was very attentive.

The food, our server, the presentation was all outstanding!!! I can’t think of anything that could have been done to improve an already perfect dining experience! Stars is so lovely anyway. Thank you for making my 70th Birthday dinner so so special!

Supposedly a classy restaurant, well the service was very good, the selection was very limited and three out of four dinners said their food was too salty.

It's very formal dining, so I wouldn't suggest bringing young children for dinner here. Also, the menu is very limited, so if you aren't fond of one of the relatively few choices, you're out of luck.

The food was very well prepared. The vegetables and greens are grown at their farm, so they are super fresh and tasty. The only issue I can find is that the menu is limited. Other than that, Stars is a very good Cape Cod option.
