We had the pleasure of dining a few times at Stars while also a hotel guest at the Inn at Perry Cabin and it was just delightful. The food was consistently good and we especially enjoyed the Crab Chowder and Pork Tenderloin. It was outstanding. The deserts were not tempting but the appetizers and entrees were quite good.

One of our “special occasion” go-to’s, Stars was way off their game this day. We waited at the hostess stand for 10 minutes while she had an extended phone call. We had a very nice, well-meaning server who was unfamiliar with the wine list or what a Bin number was. Six of my seven selected wines couldn’t be located. The food was “okay”, but not up to usual and expected standards. We are hoping this was just an off day. Please, let that be the case! 🙏🏻

The view is stunning and the ambiance lovely. The food is mediocre at best. An exception is the cheddar biscuit appetizer - addictive and delicious. Otherwise, crab cakes were very overcooked and dry. Side veggies were extremely bland. Service was annoyingly aggressive, but we had a trainee, so perhaps it's a little more refined with experienced staff. All and all, it's a lovely venue - it's just too bad that the food/service doesn't live up to the rest of the experience.

The setting is spectacular, and service was good. My rockfish was not cooked through (gelatinous, not flaky in the center)!
I did not complain because I didn’t want to spoil the mood. The prices are ridiculous. Other dishes were just OK.

The view at Stars was lovely. We could not have enjoyed that more. Our server was also very good. The food, however, was extremely disappointing. My husband could not find much on the menu to his liking. When he asked for a traditional Caesar salad rather than the one listed the server had to get the chefs approval. Even then it came without dressing. For his entree he had a bone in ribeye. It totally lacked flavor.

I had a tomato and feta salad. It was fine. For my entree I had a pesto pasta dish. Again it was lackluster.

The restaurant offers a very limited menu. I’m fine with that but I expect the dishes to be tasty and inspired. On this evening ours were not.

I don’t think we will be back any time soon.

Didn’t have our reservation. Put us outside in rain with mosquitos. Was for my 30th anniversary —just a bit upset. Didn’t have spoon to use for soup until it was cold. Not very happy to have a dog seated next to me at a fine dining restaurant.

Disappointing! This was our second visit to this area and we were really looking forward to our dinner @ Stars. In fact, we originally made 3 reservations but cancelled the balance after the first night. Service was slow and food was just ok. One of our meals was delivered to the table at room temperature and had to be sent back. Sad because I wrote a raving review 2 years ago :(.

Stars ambience is amazing. The table linens place settings a 5. Our waiter Tom was excellent. Service a 5. For the price expected much better as far as the food. Much improvement is needed. Presented very nicely. I had the Pork Tenderloin flavor was there. However it was warm and the quality of the Tenderloin was not there.

The restaurant and view are absolutely beautiful! The service was excellent! The problem was the menu, I had what was described as chicken and dumplings and my husband had crabcakes. My chicken was a cornish hen and had little to no meat on it, and the dish was very very salty, my husbands crab cakes were long an d stick like and were overdone. We asked to split a burrata tomato salad, but was barely enough for one whole let alone split for two. The soups were excellent, tomato lentil and crab bisque! We did not have dessert. We had breakfast the next day and I had scrambled egg tacos, which were not the best. The tacos were corn and overheated and brittle, difficult to eat. My husband had scrambled eggs and bacon, which were fine. We had dined here a few years ago and loved it, including the food. I don't know if they changed chefs but we were very disappointed. No steak on the menu! Hopefully a change to a better menu and chef for our next visit!

There was very little selection. I ordered chicken and dumplings and it came with a bizarre bbq sauce. There wasn’t a steak option or a fish filet option. They did have fish stew. My beet salad had raw beets and an aggressive mint seasoning. The service was very good and the room and view were beautiful. I really wanted it to be good.

Had a fabulous meal at Stars last summer and was looking forward to returning. Very underwhelmed. I guess others were as well, because there were 3 tables booked the whole evening. Menu was kind of off, I could only soup. They made a big show of "complimentary champagne" for a birthday and brought the most wretched supermarket Prossecco you could imagine. Nearly spit it out. Nothing tasted good after that.

So overpriced! Crab and corn chowder was delicious - but not worth $16 a bowl. Dinners were small portions and very expensive. Farmhouse chicken was not flavorful. The sea bass was good but the mushrooms were odd, tough and had no flavor. Chocolate ice cream was yummy- but again - way overpriced for three very small scoops.
The atmosphere is lovely - but would not go back.

When my friend and I went for lunch in the winter to beautiful St. Michaels and the Inn at Perry Cabin, it was very quiet. However it was wonderfully decorated for Christmas and the restaurant overlooks the water. Be sure to ask for a table by the window. The food, although not a very extensive menu at lunch, was very good and a very generous serving. We have a lovely time. Be sure and visit the quaint little town of St. Michaels while you are there.

The Inn at Perry Cabin is worth seeing anytime, that is, if you've not been to St. Michaels MD before.
Naturally, the cost is fairly expensive, but the service is quite good and the ambiance is very good.
They pay attention to detail. I've been there before, and it was better in terms of food, but it's still better than most any other restaurants in town. And it's civilized!!

Very disappointed! Before we went we looked on the website for the menu options and when we got to the restaurant the menu did not reflect what we were anticipating. The food was fair and over priced. The crab bisque had little to no crab meat in it. I travel and eat at many restaurants and don't mind paying a high price for a quality product. This place must think less is more. Will not be back and will certainly not recommend.

Menu selections not particularly interesting, wine list outragiously expensive, not nearly as good an experience as when owned by Orient Express. Have eaten here several times over the years, and, frankly, think one can do better at half the price in St. Michaels.

The worst steak I’ve ever eaten. My husband said he’s had better at Golden Corral... For the price we paid, we were highly disappointed. The vegetables tasted like they had just been pulled from the dirt and the rolls tasted like they had been taken out of a supermarket plastic bag. We will not be returning to this restaurant.
