My first time eating inside a restaurant since Covid started. My friend and I had a wonderful time. Great service. And rather emotional, a step, hopefully, back to normal.

Thank you.

The Star is great. Will come again. I do have 1 point of constructive feedback: Guests are currently seated to ensure 6 ft distance, so there is typically an empty table, or the main aisle-way separating tables. However, one area that they fail to ensure proper spacing is the high bar tables next to the bar and the low-seated tables right on the other side of the movable wall. A party was allowed to sit at the high bar table right next to our low-seat table, but no one realizes the tables are not actually 6 ft apart. The movable wall is insufficient as a barrier because it only goes as high as the table top of the bar table. It doesn't go even higher. So if a guest sitting at the high bar table sneezes, most certainly those sneeze particles can/will reach the guests sitting right next to and right below the high bar table.

So glad Star on Park is back!! Craving for deep dish and their Little Star pizza with the imbedded garlic is truly magnificent!! Drank and dined outside on a warm Sunday late afternoon and Erica of course took care of me with outstanding service and attention. Can’t wait till indoor opens up!!!

This place is a great local pizza and beer spot. We live around the corner and love dining out, so we are often considering them when making a decision on where to go. Our one complaint is that our overall enjoyment varies depending on the service staff. Some are witty, funny, and friendly while others are seemingly often annoyed and unapproachable. That's just people though, and regardless, this place deserves your business.

Enjoyed a nice dinner on the heated Star patio and the food and service were outstanding. Extra spicy wings and tender meatballs got our appetites going. Then enjoyed a Little Star deep dish and an Italian Combo thin crust both with lots of garlic. Erica was our enthusiastic server. Not many pizza joints do the deep dish and Star does it very well. Coming back soon!

Hard to rate a restaurant during these difficult times. Food was great but got cold very fast because of the weather. The service was okay. Runner was very nice and accommodating but our main server, he was a bit unusual. I get it, there’s a pandemic and you have new ways of operating but you don’t need to make patrons feel like they have covid. Host was great too! She was nice and easy to talk to.

Had been here before during a visit to our daughter’s, but for lunch. Dinner was very loud and problematic for me as I’m deaf in one ear. Surprisingly, it was the adults (one woman in particular) and not the kids who were the loudest. Enjoyed the food and service nonetheless. Will return on next visit to the area but will restrict to lunch period.

We really like the lunch special. Individual pizza sizes. I really like the thin crust pizza with sun-dried tomatoes and balsamic reduction. Caesar salad is good too. My husband like the deep dish crust. I do too... but prefer pizza to be lighter... so we trade one piece of our pizzas. Going late 2pm in the afternoon the place was quiet. I know at busy times it can be quite noisy.

The staff always make me feel welcome. They are friendly, attentive, yet not intrusive. Both deep dish and thin crust pizzas are outstanding: creative and hearty, quality toppings, well-balanced flavors. Great bar: specialty cocktails, beer selection, & wines. The Foxhound is my fave!

We have been going to the Star on Park ever since grand opening. We have tried a lot of different pizza variations but always fall back to the large classic deep dish as our favorite along with the green goddess dressing salad. The ingredients are fresh and are consistently delicious! The service was excellent.

We had a lovely time. The service was great but the only thing we did not enjoy as much as other Star Pizza’s from different locations was the crust of the pizza. It just wasn’t as good as we’d always had it. Maybe something just went wonky that day, so we’ll try again because everything else was great. If it remains the same, We’ll simply go to the other Star Pizza’s. I know I’m a hard judge for stuffed pizza but I’m from near Chicago and we’ve got a high bar for this very thing.
