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!

We were under the impression that food would be served on the 360 degree viewing “rooftop.” We learned that only a bar service was available on the rooftop. The food was served in a ground floor restaurant. We had sent a special request with our reservation that we be considered for the best view on the rooftop. We were never corrected or responded to prior to the dinner. I only picked this restaurant because of the anticipated view of the city. Extremely disappointed.
We did go up to the rooftop but it was quite dead and the bartender said nothing to us—not even a greeting. We left.

Excellent Brunch! Many options available for all kinds of palates, including made to order pancakes and omelettes. Comfortable booth seating was not as conducive to buffet brunch, but would be lovely for a seated meal. Brunch price does not include coffee or juice so expect to pay $30 per person. Very colorful display.

Was there for Brunch - it is Buffet style only ; not a fan. I ordered an omelette - and it was a process just to get a Ham omelette and it was odd. It was fluffy like too much milk in it. The service was great. Good just limited. I don’t like cafeteria style - the ambiance is excellent and would be great for offering parties - our waitress was great.

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!

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.
