The Bloody Mary was very good. I was not impressed with the quality or selection of the food for the Sunday brunch. Our server was very nice and attentive.

The Brunch Buffet has classic Charleston staples and a layout that is easy to maneuver. Very accommodating to our large group of 14 and the service was friendly and exceptional.

It was good ambience and service was Great but I have to give a 3 stars because we had to ask for 2 of the meals one of them being an appetizer when we saw that everybody else was eating their entrees and one of our guest didn’t even get his meal.

Good, not great. Stars attempts to have two things at once, a roof top party bar and a high end dining room. Unfortunately it’s hard to enjoy a nice meal with large parties making their way past your table to the roof top bar, and bouncers at every corner. My wife ordered a $25 rotisserie chicken that was just okay. I had a $38 ribeye with great flavor but it wasn’t as warm as I would have liked. The sides were room temp on both of our plates. When we went to the roof top my wife’s only comment was “what are we supposed to see?” No view from what we could find, just a rowdy party. Not worth the money, and definitely not deserving of the 4 star rating on Opentable.

I thought the food was good, but my ribeye came out only luke warm, and the rest of my food on my plate was only luke warm. A steak should come to the table sizzling, like it just came off the grill.

The service was good, our server was attentive.

The Sunday brunch at Stars never disappoints. It's always a treat for me, especially when I have guests visiting. The food is excellent, and the price is unbeatable for an all-you-can-eat buffet brunch. My favorites are the assorted cheeses, the smoked salmon (I could eat this all day), and the French toast. Then there are the desserts, and my favorites are the pluff mud parfait and cookies & cream parfait, served in large shot glasses. Ryan was an attentive server, and I didn't wait long for my omelette cooked to order. Great selection of craft cocktails, too, if you're in the mood for some "hair of the dog". I will always come to Stars for a weekend brunch.

I want to give it a 5 star simply because the food was fantastic. And while we really liked our server - he had a great personality, the service was extremely slow. In fact, it was slow from the get go. We had a 7:15 reservation and did not get seated until nearly 8pm...meanwhile others who can in after us were seated before us. We ordered bottles of wine that took nearly 15 minutes to come out. And while our appetizer came out quickly, there was a very long gap between that and our meal. Thankfully the food was hot and delicious.

It was a valentine’s dinner and we ordered chief special beef with lobster and fish.

The beef with lobster is cold when it’s served and when I tell the waiter, he helped me reheat the meat. So the meat went from medium rare to medium well.

The appetizers were good but the main course was a disaster.

I have to say it is the worst dinner I’ve ever had.

Came to Charleston for my honeymoon, popped in for a good steak dinner after a long day of traveling, and was completely blown away by the impeccable service we received from drinks at the rooftop bar with Beebs as our bartender to fine dining downstairs with Sullivan as our waitress. The quality of food was also incredible. But more than that, I left with a huge smile. Each person who waited on us was incredibly personable and made us feel at home in a new city. Not to mention, I left with a huge list of recommendations of other awesome things to do while we visit that I didn’t even have to ask for it. It’s this type of “extra mile” that certainly leaves a lasting impression. Can’t say enough about Stars!
