    Ordered a steak cooked to medium-well. I was served a medium-rare steak. Returned the steak; it was brought back to me a second time cooked to medium-rare. I didn’t want to try a third time.

    Misleading. Didn’t realize only one mimosa for the $50 brunch. Options limited. Carving station meat was dry and only 1 cheese available for omelets. Overall was disappointing.

    I was always a fan of Stars. It’s been a while since I’ve been able Togo. But tbh it was underwhelming. Please don’t order the surf and turf special. It’s more space of the plate than food. Also new chef so this chef doesn’t have the “chef special” that the old chef had. I loved when the chef gets creative. Bring that back. I also ordered the local catch. Also underwhelming and also Luke warm upon arrival. This is just an honest assessment of my recent experience. It was also Valentine’s Day. It was kind of busy. But that doesn’t excuse anything. This might have been a 1 off.

    Food was excellent. Service not so much. Our server never offered us to order appetizers or wine, both of which we would have ordered. We had to go get him to order drinks. Slow kitchen I understand. Not coming to check on us or the food quality was not good. Completely on the server. We would not recommend.

    One of the worst steaks I had and would not go back. The drink I got (dr. pepper) was watered down with soda water, and the alcoholic beverage had so much alcohol, I couldn’t even drink it. The only good thing was the ambience.

    Restaurant Week was wonderful this year and Stars topped our list ( we ate at 9 restaurants). Our waitress Rachel was gracious, informative and experienced- she explained the menu and made us feel special. The salads were fresh and generous, steak and fish properly prepared and dessert trio was enjoyed later at home. We plan to return and definitely recommend Stars.

    We used to come here before Covid and it was $25 per person. Huge buffet, all the food was fresh. Everything you could imagine on a breakfast buffet including made to order omelets and pancakes. Fabulous!!! Today it was $48 per person. Limited items for the omelet which by the way the veggies in the omelet were not cooked, buffet was 1/4 of the size it used to be. Potatoes were cold and hard, bread was hard and to top it all of they had a guy playing the guitar and singing. My husband and I were the only ones at our table and we finally gave up trying to talk to each other due to the music being so loud. $108 later….. save your money… go to Poogans, Eli’s Table or Peninsula Grill just to name a few for a great, reasonable brunch

    We had a very long, unexpected wait, (about an hour) even though we had a reservation. We were sat at a table top rather than our reserved table. However, the negative experience was turned positive by the sweet, generous staff and Manager, James. The food was great and we definitely appreciate the effort everyone made to give me a great birthday dinner!

    Visited Starts for restaurant week. The place was busy but not overly busy considering it was a Saturday night. We were there for over 3 hours, the food took so long to come out and was cold when it did. The food had zero flavor, one person in my party was unable to even eat their meal. No manager or anything came over to apologize. They did take $15 off, but was still charged the full $60 for the restaurant week price. The service was extremely slow to get drinks, did not check in to see if we need anything or let us know why everything was taking so long. If you want good food in Charleston, there are many other restaurants that have delicious food. I would not recommend stars.

    The food seemed to be hit or miss-- my friend loved her appetizer of mussels, but both of our entrees (duck and short ribs) were bland and underwhelming, and the risotto was cold and gooey. The service was not great either, between the 30 minute wait before anyone even brought water and being told that the large booths were for larger parties (only to watch a 2 person party being placed at a large booth across from us minutes later-- but they must have been far more important than we were, as the management fawned all over them for their whole meal and checked in with them constantly while we had to almost light a flare to get any attention), it's very unlikely that we'll be returning to Stars. If I'm spending that kind of money, I would like a consistently flavorful meal and to not be treated like a 2nd class citizen.

    Went for the brunch buffet, and although it looked delicious, I ordered the biscuits and gravy with a side of sausage and 2 eggs over easy. My wife had the breakfast platter. Both were very tasty and filling. The biscuits were some of the best I've had since moving here over 4 years ago. Service was spot on and the live music, which was not expected on a Saturday morning, was a nice touch. Definitely returning to sample that brunch buffet.

    Didn’t expect buffet brunch with just a few Ala Carte choices since during the week it showed a full breakfast menu.buffets just aren’t a value to us at our age. They did have a prime rib and a ham but 10am is too early for that. What we had we enjoyed and the waitress was great. But for what we ate it certainly was close to $50 a person. Just go really Hungary

    Not the quality of food I would expect for the price. Also our waiter’s description of my meal was not accurate. What he detailed and what was brought out was not the same. I have a shellfish allergy and my fish came out with shrimp on my plate as a side.

    It surprised me that more people weren't in Stars for brunch this past Saturday. It's a beautiful place with great food, great service, and an absolutely outstanding musician playing. Our server was kind enough to bring a mimosa to our daughter who was graduating from CofC that afternoon. We can't wait to visit Stars again soon!

    I made reservations to celebrate my husband’s birthday. I did not expect to be seated in the bar area! I received a weak explanation involving waitstaff when I asked if we could be seated at a nicer table with a tablecloth. There were plenty of available tables on the first floor. Not the best customer service in Charleston.

    Nice looking restaurant inside. The service was ok but the food prep and delivery were sub-par. The entrees came out at the same time as our salads and since we were sitting at a two-top there was no place to put all four plates. Well run restaurants bring you your salad first and give you enough time to eat it before bringing out your entree. We had the food running take the entrees back so we could finish our salads and told our server that we really would like the entrees to not be sitting under a heat lamp for 15 minutes. So she assured us that she would have the kitchen "remake" both entrees. We were hoping that "remaking" them meant a hot meal but it meant a room temperature meal. I figured out why "Stars" was the only restaurant we could get a last minute Saturday night reservation at. Longhorn Steakhouse has a better run kitchen...you can get a hotter, better tasting meal there for alot less money. I am glad that Stars did not make any attempt to make a disappointing experience better in any way. That way I won't forget I ate there and make that mistake twice.
