This is simply the best brunch in town. Only 25 bucks for a delicious buffet brunch? And a choice of pancakes or omelettes made to order? You can't beat it. Great craft cocktails, too. We enjoyed a couple of sazeracs. The smoked salmon is always one of my favorites. We miss the parfaits desserts, though. The Pluff Mud pudding was amazing!

Our waitress was wonderful, however, food service was excruciatingly slow. We were seated at just after 7pm and did not receive our entrees until 8:45pm.

We ate there to celebrate Valentine's day. The service was top notch and steaks were cooked exactly as requested and were delicious. The lobster fettuccine was tender and the sauce was flavorful. This was our first time here and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

What happened to the Pluff Mud pudding?!? It is different and barely subpar. The steak was overcooked, the wine had sedimentation at the bottom. The oyster appetizer was not as good as it used to be. Very sad to see Stars go downhill looking this. We won't be back.

What a disappointment. First of all - who goes to a brunch and upon being seated is not offered coffee or tea? We were given a quick run down as to where the food was located and then left to fend for ourselves. The French toast was ok. The shrimp and grits was flavorless. But the biggest joke was the “supposed” eggs Benedict. It was cold, chewy and lacked any hollandaise sauce. The fruit was acceptable at best - if you could catch the blueberries falling off of the ridiculous display. Do yourself a favor and go to Halls.

Stars has the best weekend brunch in town! The selection of appetizers, sides, main dishes, and desserts is outstanding. The value is unbelievable, only $25 for the entire spread! It's my favorite place for a Sunday brunch, and I always bring friends here, whether they are locals or from out-of-town. The list of craft cocktails is excellent, as well. They make a very good sazerac.

Good food. Great service. Unfortunately had a steady stream of fruit flys flying around our food off and on throughout the entire meal. Management should check the kitchen floor drains as that is where they breed.

Great place for an anniversary dinner, especially on a Sunday night! It was very quiet, but the experience was very memorable. Complimentary champagne and worked with edits to the menu for us. Highly recommend for a date night/anniversary. Scallops were amazing!!!!

Heath was our server and was absolutely fantastic. For a popular holiday for eating out, and the restaurant being fully booked, they were extremely efficient and had great service from attentive staff that ensured drinks were always full to the quick delivery of the meals. Highly recommend! The ribeye is probably one of the best items on the menu!!

All was good except I was surprised that my daughter’s pasta was underdone and her shrimp underdone. My spinach was over salted too.
My steak and wine were great though. Very good service as well.

Restaurant was empty. As a first time visitor, I had made Open Table reservations. When we walked in the hostess looked around, said nothing, and acted like she did not know where to seat us. It was just weird. Once seated, our server was fantastic. She went over and above to make us feel welcome. The food was good, prices above average. Most patrons entering after us went straight to rooftop. We did not know that was an option until after we were seated and served. All in all, a little weird.
