It took us over an hour and a half to get our food, granted it was Valentine’s Day weekend. However, the portions sizes are extremely small. Cocktails were the best part of the whole experience.

We normally love Stars this time the recommendation of the Ribeye was terrible. It was so chewy and they didn’t even offer to take it off the bill. Disappointing cause I normally spend a lot money(1000.00 x 12 last year) entertaining clients so I think we will look for another place for a while.

Really enjoyed the restaurant week menu and the relaxed environment. Dinner was a great experience for my out of town friends and the wait staff was exceptional. I highly recommend the local catch if you visit!

This place seems to specialize in dinner service with a rooftop bar but do not sleep on the brunch! It was delicious. The rooftop bar is nice with lots of greenery but unfortunately the view isn’t great as it is mostly other roofs you are seeing with no view directly to king below

We had our New Year's Eve dinner in Stars. Despite the pandemics guidelines, the place was very crowded and that made us very uncomfortable. The service was outstanding. The food was very good but not remarkable. Overall, I believe Stars is overpriced, not necessarily a good value for your money.

Everything was ok except The service was sub par. We were Rushed out - we had a late reservation on a Friday night and our waiter was clearly ready to go home. I understand that places have closing times but our reservation was at 9 and we left by 10. Not exactly a super late night. We would have spent more money on drinks and dessert if we would have felt welcomed. There are tons of options in Charleston - I’d recommend giving somewhere else a try.

18.00 brunch burger was overpriced. The crispy bacon arrived burnt and tasteless. We requested roof top seating only to find out when we arrived that one could only get drinks on the rooftop. Our waitress was clearly not feeling well (hungover, getting over Covid?) She was apathetic and just had zero energy. Skip this place, plenty of other restaurants in Charleston to have a great brunch.

Made reservation in order to experience the rooftop ambience but when we arrived, we were told that it was reserved for a private event. We were seated at a booth with rips and tears in the booth. Service was slow because the waiter was too busy flirting with the bachelorette party seated next to us. It took almost an hour from the time we placed order until it arrived. My wife ordered the filet which arrived cooked appropriately but cold. My grouper was good but all in all, food was over priced for value.

The hostess was unfriendly, the waiter was not super attentive and the food was a complete disappointment. Cinnamon rolls were ice cold, the biscuits were flat and there was italian sausage in the gravy.

My wife and I are in Charleston for our anniversary and because of the restaurants had no openings, we decided to give this place a try. The rooftop bar was a fun way to start the evening on a windy night. Our server Rob was incredible and made the evening super special. The quality of food was super high, but the portion sizes are pretty small for the price. Had we received a bit more food for our buck, I probably would’ve given this five stars. Great place to do something special!

Really good service, really good food; filets were amazing but that was about it. A little pricey but to be expected in downtown Charleston. Was looking for something a little more intimate but that was probably my fault. Rooftop was really fun for drinks.

During the Covid 19 crisis, the restaurant is taking every precaution. We did have to wait for food longer than we would have liked and the restaurant was low or out of several dishes. BUT I think this is to be expected while restaurants are dealing with the virus. The staff was attentive and gave us both a free round of drinks and desert samplers to make up for the wait. We were very pleased overall and look forward to going back when challenges of Covid 19 are over.

When we arrived for brunch, not one other diner in sight. Ordered the cast iron skillet cinnamon roll - which wasn’t one roll but three little ones. The rolls were way over cooked and just okay. The coffee tasted burnt. Aside from food, the staff was very friendly. Was hopeful but left disappointed.

Wow. Wow! Wow!! Wow!!! Order the halibut and add three massive scallops for very reasonable price. One of the best meals of my life. Only thing to know is that the rooftop has no food service but no view either so sitting near the window along King Street allows for great people watching.
