We had a wonderful meal with great service. But it was a Friday night and really loud. Then again, we are about 3-4 times as old as the rest of the guests & the staff. But the servers were really good, cheerful, helpful and friendly.

Cocktails were not the typical of other Charleston restaurants so that was a nice surprise. The filet and ribeye were absolutely terrific. Lobster bruschetta and crispy brussel sprout appetizers were delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant - ambiance was fun!

We booked this reservation under the impression that there was rooftop dining, this was incorrect. The dining area was very nice, classic in appearance with 90’s pop music playing. I’m didn’t mind this juxtaposition, I’m t made it fun. The service was average, our waitress was very sweet but our dinner took over an hour to come to the table and there were a couple of small things forgotten about during our meal. The food itself was over priced for the quality. My risotto was bland and the scallops were sandy and bland. The rooftop was not impressive at all.

Food was outstanding! Service very good. Slightly slow but we were enjoying and in no rush. Meal seating was only downstairs. I misunderstood, I thought there was meal seating with a window view upstairs. We were there for friend company so it was fine and again meal was fantastic!

First impression was nice clean restaurant but noise level was beyond my comfort. We did get a nice booth which was in the back and quieter. Our server, Logan, was attentive, personable, and timely with food and drinks. The Rooftop bar was nice with a younger crowd and a fun view.

Food and service were good. Reservations were not seated on the roof top and ambiance inside was so-so. Online menus and prices are out of date and not what was offered. Went up to Rooftop after brunch and the view is really nothing special. Not worth the price.

Our food and service were both fabulous. The atmosphere was a bit strange for us. Night club with music on the rooftop with the same loud music and energy downstairs makes for a strange fine dining experience. With that said, we did enjoy our dinner.

As far as service, the manager on shift was very pleasant and overall interacted with us more than our own waitress.
The waitress herself seemed either confused or like she didn’t want to be there.

Food beverage wise: The beverages were slightly difficult to drink as they didn’t have any straws available and a ton of ice (one was a frozen mimosa). The food itself was good but for the overall price I would expect more… not just a single item (may offer side options as well).

I don’t recall reading online, and this could be a complete oversight on my end if so… but it said it was supposed to be live jazz? As we were leave about 11, a DJ started playing jazz music? I would note that on the brunch section somewhere so people know what to expect as far as music and time. :)

Slightly disappointed only because we made the reservation for brunch for the rooftop and when we arrived we were told they don’t serve food on the rooftop. Definitely recommend editing your reservation page to reflect that. Food and service was good!

The lower level dining was nice but the music was not entertaining. The food tasted amazing thought the potatoes were a bit too salty. On the website they advertise $3 mimosas when they’re actually $6. But the rooftop was nice and open and played better music.

Water from an air conditioning unit dripped on my girlfriend throughout the meal...

The name of the place is a misnomer -- as most of the seating for dinner is not on the rooftop

Although our waitress was sweet as could be, I have to give our experience only 3 stars since we never received our food. We received our appetizers and first round of drinks with no problem but then we didn’t get our second round of drinks or our entrees after almost 45 minutes. Finally the manager came out and apologized explaining that there was a glitch with the new software they were using to take orders and our order had been deleted and was never received by the kitchen. By then it was 9:30 and we just couldn’t wait any longer as we had to leave to go pick up our kids. Stuff happens, I get it, but we were really hungry and ended up just getting a pizza on the way home instead of my filet mignon. 😔
Our waitress was a sweetheart though and it wasn’t her fault. We had our drinks and appetizer comp’d. We’re local and would try Stars again, but I hope they can get the bugs fixed with their ordering software.

My only issue is that we were seated at a window and there were two pesky flies that were in the window that kept disturbing our meal. Other than that the food was excellent and the service was great.
