The rooftop was tight and had a limited view of the city. Too many shrubs around the rooftop.

Our waiter, Eric, was personable and professional. Since it was our first time visiting Charleston, Eric took the time to share some of his favorite places for us to check out. Thank you!

the food had no flavor and extremely over priced. I paid $36 for a lobster pasta that I could have made myself with even more flavor.

My dinner at Stars was average. Food and service were both ok, but nothing special. Had a vegetarian in my group who asked if there was meat in the shrimp and grits gravy and the waiter told her there wasn't, but when she tried her meal there was andouille sausage in the gravy. I had the Salmon which was good and my other friend had the burger which was also fine - nothing to rave about.

Raymond was our waiter and he made our experience exceptional. His attitude and charisma was unmatched. He was very knowledgeable about the food and drinks and went above and beyond to give us a great night. The food was wonderful, it was a beautiful space, and we had a lovely time celebrating our bachelorette.

We went here with a large group of girls on a Friday night and were so pleased with our experience. Our server was outstanding and the food was delicious. We also went out to the rooftop bar that had a great ambiance. Would definitely return here again. Thank you!

We went with a group of five couples, food and drinks were good and our waiter was very pleasant but it was HOT where out table was. It felt like the AC wasn’t working at all. Very uncomfortable for my husband, who was dressed in slacks and a nice long sleeve shirt.

Food did not taste very good, drinks were good, other clientele were pushy, rude, tried to fight us. How does that even happen? This was a nice dinner out for us, not a bachelor party.

I have been to Stars for drinks many times, but never really thought about it for dinner. Finally attended when friends were in town and I was surprised at how GREAT everything was. 6 people who all got different entrees and not one thing was bad! Would highly recommend!

You cannot get a reservation for the rooftop. We were never asked how our meal was. My burger was well done when I asked for medium. The pasta was hard. I could have gotten a better burger at five guys.

Food was delicious and the roof top area was a great spot! However, we had reservations and still waited over 45 minutes to be seated even though they had plenty of open tables. Customer service was definitely not up to par. Don’t have the desire to ever go back.

This was our first trip to Charleston. If you ever get a chance to visit, ask to have Raymond be your server, he is phenomenal!! He provided 5-star service for us, making recommendations from the menu, bringing us samples of dessert, and giving us a list of places to visit before our trip ends. We have already decided to make a return visit and we will certainly be back!

We had a delicious meal, we would highly recommend the salmon and the risotto. Definitely make a plan to visit, and consider yourself extremely fortunate if Raymond serves you!

Our dining experience was nothing but fantastic! We went for our family birthday outing and felt extremely special by the dining staff. We had Sullivan who was our waitress, she was excellent and would recommend of having her again. She knew the menu and knew how to put a smile on our faces :). The food was outstanding!...I got the ribeye with green beans and macaroni and cheese. This meal was easily a 10/10 and would get it in a heartbeat. Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone & will be back soon!

3 out of 4 of us ordered the surf and turn special. My friend had the scallops with risotto. The risotto wasn't even cooked and was crunchy. I told the server, who looked stunned that I was honest, and didn't even apologize. The 3 of us were very pleased with our meal, but at this price point, food should be edible!

The service was good but the food was barely edible. While we understand that during the 4th of July, staff is probably lower or slower- we were expecting higher quality food from Stars. My boyfriends risotto was severely undercooked, he couldn't eat it and my steak was NOT how I ordered it and took at least 20 minutes to fix. All of this would have been OK except the food took over an hour from the time we ordered it. I would expect the food to be at least cooked right after taking that long.

The drinks were great and the rooftop is amazing, I would probably never eat here again nor would I recommend the food to a friend.

Nice restaurant, good food and great service. The menu has a limited selection of entrees and the surf & turf special was a bit pricey. Overall, a great night out.
