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.
Restaurant is directly across from a night club. Food still left something to be desired. Good place, not great.
Amazing service and even better food. Definitely a must-see if you’re in the area.
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.
Will definitely go back again.
The frozen mimosas are amazing. The burguer was perfectly cooked
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.
It was wonderful ! Came for drinks and then dinner downstairs !!!! Definitely recommend coming !!
We had reservations and showed up early to enjoy a cocktail at the Rooftop bar. It was a Monday night so it wasn't crowded. The food was great!! The salads were amazing and we all shared entrees. They were great!
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.
Terrible server, out of a part of 8 no one really enjoyed their food. It was also VERY hot inside the restaurant. Not worth what you pay for the food.
Very small portions at a very high price
Loved every minute of my experience here! We had fantastic service, with Robert as our server, the food was great & really nice atmosphere. We will be back!
Great place to eat on a weekend trip to Charleston with my wife. Service was excellent and we felt very at home. Will come back for our next visit to Charleston!
our waitress was great and so was the service. Also, loved the playlist!
This was my worst downtown Charleston experience ever. I’m getting married in a few days and my young daughters and I decided to do a little bachelorette party to celebrate.
We usually go to Halls, and made the unfortunate decision to try Stars. I tried it a few years ago and it wasn’t great then either so I should have learned my lesson.
Upon arrival the hostess just stared at us and said nothing. I finally said “I guess I’ll go first we have a reservation at 7”. No reference was made to our special occasion at all even though we included it in our reservation.
We were seated and wanted to order mocktails since my girls are underage. The server - who also made zero mention of our special evening - said they couldn’t make them because they don’t have a blender. Um...what??? What restaurant doesn’t have a blender? Ok. Moving on.
We were informed of a long list of things they were out of which was surprising given their limited menu to begin with. We went to order an appetizer and were then informed they were also out of that. I asked why they were out of everything and our server said because they were changing the menu the following week.
I wanted to leave at that point but my kids did not, so we stayed. We ordered what they had available. It was not great. For as expensive as the steak it it’s just dumped over fries in a bowl.
The food was as unimpressive as everything else. No one was nice or went out of their way to make sure we had a great evening. The kicker was that CNN was playing on most of the TVs. Yes please let everyone watch the coronavirus news as we’re trying to enjoy an evening out. I couldn’t get out of there fast enough.
The restaurant was empty and I watched them turn away lots of big parties of people at the door. Idk what’s going on at this place but I will never be back.
Disappointed that there was no eating on the rooftop. They were out of lobster and lamb. I ordered steak and frites - would have been delicious but the peppercorns were very overwhelming and I love pepper.
First, it smelled like dirty mop water and then there were gnats and flies flying around the table the whole time we were there. Our food came out quick but I imagine that was because we were only one of 4 tables in the restaurant. Service was good but the food definitely wasn’t worth the money. We both had the steak frites which we ordered medium well. It wasn’t even cooked medium rare. The fries were soggy and the “sauce” was more of a gravy that the steak was smothered in. Food and atmosphere might be better during normal circumstances but it wasn’t hitting on much this time.
Not do great service from server and manager.
I wouldn’t know I had a reservation and 2 hours before I got a text that they closed to clean. So for our anniversary night we didn’t have reservations anymore and no where to eat all nice places were booked
Had a wonderful meal. Rack of lamb was great! The safety of the customers with the current situation made me feel safe and protected. Thank you
Great service! Very good wine selection and food was cooked perfectly.
Early Fathers Day celebration while visiting the beautiful city of Charleston. Food was delicious! Drinks were spectacular! Rooftop bar was a hit as well!
Excellent brunch menus option. Food was good. Service was quick. Great value. And don’t miss their rooftop bar for a cocktail or even just a coffee. Fried Oyster Eggs Benedict was crazy good!
Do not be fooled. This is not a rooftop restaurant. Very misleading. Would not recommend.
Just a wonderful meal all the way around
Very disappointed in menu and good quality and taste.
Terrible food and service The menu had 4 entrees I would never go back I don’t know how they will stay in business.
I really do apologize for the limited menu. With everything happening right now we are trying to get back to normal as much as possible, however it is going to take some time. We typically don't do food on the rooftop, but we wanted to add more seating for our customers, this is something we are new to and are still learning the best way to accomplish this. We will be launching our full menu next week and I would like to welcome you back to give us another chance. Best, Stars Management
It was a great night out. The food and drinks are a little pricey, but given the location it is to be expected.
The only negative was the bouncer. My friends and I are all clearly over 25, but he took (no exaggeration) about 3-5 minutes to inspect each of our IDs. He even did this for people that were 40+. I understand being thorough, but it was excessive.
I am so glad you all enjoyed your night out. The security was through a third party and we have made this issue aware to them and hope to not have this problem again. I hope you come see us again. Best, Stars Management
Fantastic service and awesome food!!!
Me and my Girlfriend went here for nice dinner out. It was our second time eating here and it was just as good as the first time we went! Highly recommend!
The rooftop bar was very disappointing. There was no view at all except for industrial rooftops. There was no atmosphere either. The drinks were watered down. The food in the restaurant was pretty good. Our waiter was very good!
I was disappointed in the food quality this visit.
Delicious food. Service was suspect at best. Would definitely go back hoping service would step up a little.
Great food and staff
Out of town family visiting
Great except for weather.
Awesome ambiance, especially at the roof top bar. The service at the dining room was wonderful. It was an awesome evening!
