    Our waitress was good, but the food took over an hour and it wasn’t busy when we arrived at 6:30 pm. I ordered the 10 oz coulette. It was tough and flavorless. It came on a bed of new potatoes, zucchini, and squash. Some were tender, some more raw. We finally left around 8:00 pm. Very, very disappointed. Make reservations somewhere else.

    This was the first time my wife and I had dined here. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation and was greeted by a friendly Maitre'd and seated immediately. The server, who was very friendly, and bubbly greeted us at our table and took our order for wine. She presented us with a menu and gave us a few minutes to look it over. She returned and answered our questions about the food and made a couple of recommendations when asked. The food arrived and was delicious and plentiful. We had dessert, and again our server made a recommendation that was spot on, Overall, I loved my experience dining here, and would certainly recommend this Restaurant to friends.

    The ambiance and music made for a perfect night. We ate the Strawberry & Beet salad that was incredible. Dinner was the braised beef a very large piece and it was very delightful! The waitstaff and help were very personable and came to our table to talk to us and it made for a wonderful night. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Oh and make sure you go to the rooftop for a before or after drink!

    Came for the Sunday brunch with live jazz music. The frozen mimosa is very good. One page menu offering. My etouffee was a little too salty but otherwise everything else was good. Nice ambience. Lots of small fruit flies but this is Charleston and it was nearing 100 degrees

    Enjoyed several meals at Stars over time and although the food & service is still excellent quality, it seems we received less food. When you enjoy a nice dinner and your entire party still leaves hungry, you wonder was it worth the price.

    Another amazing restaurant in Charleston. Busy but a tolerable level of noise. Our waiter was very helpful indeed. He introduced us to Basil Hayden Bourbon: an acquaintance that I hope to renew. The braised veal on the bone is divine- a word of advice, if you choose this then either skip your starter or have a very light dish. I could have done with a sedan chair at the end of the night. If you aren't looking for red meat, the Grouper is highly recommended.

    Arrived for our reservation and were seated immediately near the back of the restaurant where we could observe the staff activity (which I enjoy). Rob was our server and very friendly and attentive. Well-versed on the menu and willing to discuss several of the items with suggestions. We selected the tuna and beef fillet. Got to chat with Jordan the floor manager and what a pleasure. Great knowledge of bourbon. Discussed my choice of Four Roses (very reasonably priced) and many of brands including Woody Creek from Colorado. The mozzarella salad that we split was fabulous. Lots of flavor and surprised by the waffles mixed in with the tomatoes, cheese, crutons, etc. Fantastic! The steak almost melted in my mouth and the tuna was also very good. Both our plates were empty for the busser. The restaurant was crowded and a bit noisy but not so you couldn't have a conversation. Parking was available in a lot behind the restaurant. Bravo!!!

    Server was fine. Unfortunately it took approximately an hour for food to get to our table and my medium rare filet was closer to well done . Maybe they were just having an off night, but for a 140.00 meal it was a sub par night.

    Service was great - very attentive and helpful. The bar was slow. It took awhile to get our drinks, and they were also out of multiple typical liquors. One person in our party had to order a drink 3x times until one was available. The kitchen, too, was incredibly slow. Everyone was pleased with the taste, but the food presentation was below expectations for a restaurant that wants to be seen as “casual smart” or “business casual”. One dish was also swimming in oil; way too much used. Overall, it was a fine experience and we didn’t have anything else to do. We wouldn’t return though.

    The restaurant seems like it could be good, but our server was really bad. First of all, In total it took us an hour from sitting down until we were eating our food, and it was cold when it got to our table. The server took forever to take our orders. Then, when he finally did take them, the kitchen made it really fast, but then we saw it sit on the counter for 15+ minutes. He wasn’t even doing anything at the bar but talking to the other waiters. It was outside of his view so he just didn’t notice the food was ready. There were long gaps between each time he checked up on us. When he gave us the check he didn’t ask if we wanted it split up, he just gave us all one check (6 people) when we asked to split it up he said there was a max of 4 checks (which was fine because we had two couples), but he had never asked. When he finally did split it up, he put drinks on peoples tab that didn’t have any. My girlfriend had a bunch of foil chunks in her mimosa from the champagne bottle and we asked about it, he just shrugged. He got her a new one but charged for both, and it was the wrong one. Knocked my cup off the table, and one of the tables next to us, too. Normally wouldn’t care about little things like this but it just seemed like everything added up to a poor experience

    It's been a couple years since we last visited Stars. Food quality has definitely gone downhill. Mostly bachelor and bachelorette parties in the restaurant. Roof top bar was closed to a private party. There are a ton of restaurants in Charleston and Mt. Pleasant with better quality food and better prices. Our meals were uncooked both on the fish and the steak. I don't personally see the need to come back for the price we paid. Too bad the quality level has dropped off so much over the last couple years.

    Rooftop bar was great. John, was wonderful and tweaked our drinks to make them perfect. Loved being up there. Dining room was a great disappointment. I had chicken and waffles. Chicken was over cooked and dark brown. Tasted burnt. 1/2 a waffle. My husband had crawfish and etouffee. No noticeable crawfish visually or taste wise. I know it was Mother’s Day and we had a 12:45 reservation but didn’t think you were out of food and kitchen was closing. Disappointing Mother’s Day for me.

    Unfortunately, we have to report that this was not a great visit. After many visits in the past for Sunday Brunch at Stars, we learned on this occasion that there was a new Chef and new menu. To be as nice as possible, no complaints on the food taste, but the serving size and price was an unpleasant surprise. We left hungry for an expensive brunch. I am sorry but we will not venture here again.
