    This is a diner that provides adequate food. I felt a bit rushed when they brought our entrees out and hovered before we were halfway through our starters. If they had asked how the dessert was, they would have been told it was not great

    Our waiter Brandon was incredible. Most of us got steak & everyones was cooked perfectly. The only thing I would suggest Would be a larger & better dessert menu. We left & went elsewhere for dessert.

    My friends and I went for a Brunch. I ordered Steak & Eggs. Food was okay. Service was okay. The man took my unfinished plate without even asking if I’m done with it, and we felt like the servers are rushing us to finish our food and wanted to take our plates.

    This was my birthday dinner-had out of town guests with me as well. We were so excited for this dinner and what a lousy and disappointing experience it was! We had to wait to be seated after our reservation- at least 15 minutes. Then the server took a while to come back after we sat. Food was the biggest joke of all-3 out of 5 steaks came out way undercooked- almost rare. We sent them back and they still came back undercooked. The manager did take off the steaks and a round of drinks. The server was also sweet. But I don’t have much else positive to say about our experience. Not sure if we will go back anytime soon.

    The restaurant is fun and energetic. The waiter was fantastic, knowledgeable and friendly. The corn bread and short ribs both highly recommended, left me flat. Both were a bit dry for my taste. The seared tuna was excellent!

    Do not eat here. This was the worst experience we’ve ever had. We only saw our server twice and the food was horrific, cold, and looked old. Risotto? No-rotto. It was 90 second ready rice. We weren’t the first table to send our food back.

    I thought the price for the “restaurant week” was pricey. The food was delicious. The child’s menu should offer some fruits and veggies . The service was excellent and the Key Lime pie was the best ever.

    Ok, we had high expectations because of the ratings and we were super disappointed. Just for clarification, the grill is not on the rooftop, thus no dining on the roof…only drinks. Our food was almost inedible; very poor quality for steak and eggs were more oil than eggs. For brunch, we should’ve picked a different spot!

    Restaurant is beautiful inside and lively along very busy King Street. Our server was amazing -- very attentive and great with suggestions. Food was good. We split the panzanella salad and we tried the rib eye and porterhouse steaks and mushrooms and truffle mashed potatoes. Food was excellent. Fun people watching the groups going to the rooftop bar, which we also checked out. Great views of Charleston.

    Brunch. Eh. Looks like it’s probably a cool restaurant for dinner. Saxophone player is great, but quite loud for a sparse Sunday brunch crowd. The gravy for the biscuits is very thin. Chicken and waffles is very tasty but for $20 the portion is tiny. Might be a cool night spot, but for breakfast, I wouldn’t go again.

    The food was average. The service was good. They over charge for drinks and were not upfront about it. We had eaten at 5 other restaurants in town including High Cotton. We ordered the same drinks at each place being charged $40-60. At star the same order was $180. We asked no mistake. Be careful if ordering drinks here.

    The food was good. The ambiance tries to have 1930's theme but the booth could have been cleaned better. We shared the beet and strawberry salad along with the corn bread. They were both very good. We had to ask for little plates to share the salad and they gave us tiny bread plates. The steaks were fine but not as good as expected for the price. The sides were fine but again, for the price nothing was outstanding. This place is really expensive and not worth it

    Absolutely wonderful meal. Our favorite meal during our entire trip. Even took into consideration an allergy, and made sure everything was cooked appropriately. Filet was cooked a little more rare than expected for a medium, so if you really don’t prefer rare, go with a medium or medium well. Everything was absolutely delicious!

    Jazz music was way too loud. No one could hear the person next to them when speaking to each other. Waiter took out drink order and never brought us our drinks - we had to remind him and then he said we never ordered drinks. The food was ok - not much variety. It seems three breakfast potatoes came with every meal - even the cheeseburger.

    The ambience was very nice. Love the white tablecloth. Thought it was pricey for the quality. Short rib shareable was the best item we ordered. Cornbread shareable was too dry and whipped butter should have been automatically served with it instead of having to ask for the butter. There was nothing special about the flavor. The two entrees (fish of the day and crab ?) had no outstanding flavor. No imagination to the preparation or flavor. Had eaten at Fox Swamp the night before and absolutely loved their food. Their drawback was no white tablecloths (when one pays this $$, expect a white tablecloth!) and had a hotel atmosphere.

    The food was great! Our server was excellent! We celebrated an engagement and they made us feel special. We enjoyed drinks at the rooftop before our reservations and the view and sunset were spectacular!! We’ve been to Charleston many times and had never heard of Stars so we decided to check it out and we’re not disappointed! The mussels and short ribs were amazing and the cornbread is a must!!

    This was such a strange experience. Started ok- server was friendly. Prices are high- we were willing to pay assuming it would be great food, service and experience. It was none of these. The server was lackluster at best... drinks took quite awhile. The food arrived after almost an hour- the steak was very underdone and we sent it back. The pasta had been under the warmer for awhile- parts were scalding, parts were cold. The pork chop was nearly raw in places. Two of the 5 meals were"good" not great for their price point. At finally- this place has an identity crisis. With entrees at $42 to $60 with sides not included, you expect excellent ambiance, service and food. This place has a rooftop bar with continuous line of people walking by your table going up....in ball caps, crappy gym shorts, whatever, with tons of bachorette parties. Just two very different vibes that dont go together. Don't do it. Just not at all worth the money.
