I was underwhelmed with this restaurant, especially for the cost. It wasn't terribly expensive, but I was very disappointed with their stock levels of food and alcohol. Order a bottle of Duckhorn cabernet - nope, sorry, sold out. And, the list of California cabernets is light and overpriced; I expect to overpay for a bottle of wine when I go out to dinner, but $180 for a bottle of Prisoner? Also, two folks in our party wanted the prime rib special - nope, sorry, sold out of that too. How does that happen? And it's not like we came in for a late dinner when everything was already gone - it was a 7:15pm reservation. It's still a nice place and the food we had was good, but next time I'm staying at the Perry Cabin I think I'll be eating elsewhere.

Hello- Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. While we strive to always have all varietals of wine from our list in stock there are times when we do not always receive the surplus of allocated wines that you might find in larger cities and we do apologize. We are pleased that our nightly features are so popular amongst our guests as our intention is to in fact sell out of them nightly. Again, we thank you for your feedback and look forward to seeing you again at the Inn.

Beautiful and delicious food. We appreciated flexibility of staff to move our table away from a large and loud group. Staying overnight at the Inn, we ate again here for breakfast and all agreed that meal was even better — both food and service. A great experience all around.

Greetings Deborah- We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced when you attempted to dine at Stars on Sunday evening. Stars does modify their hours of operation in the winter months due to lower occupancy in the hotel. We have posted this information on our Opentable account as well as shut down the ability to book online reservations during these times as to not confuse our guests. We look forward to seeing you during your next visit to the Inn and St. Michaels.

The staff warmly greeted us and asked to serve sparkling or non sparkling water. We were given bread, ordered, enjoyed the view, and ate dinner. It was delicious and the side kale and spinach were tastier than anticipated. We saved room for dessert and wanted to try the bacon chocolate brownie w ice cream. It was dry and tasted stale. Unfortunately, we told the staff and there was no customer service other than an apology. Everything else was really amazing. Just avoid this dessert or ask for the freshest version.

We ordered the cheesy biscuits and raw oysters as an appetizer and they came out relatively quickly and were delicious. Everything went down after that. Four tables that arrived after us received their meals before our server realized we still didn’t have our simple main entrees. No apology and very minimal service after that. Won’t be back and definitely don’t recommend. Phenomenal view, great location but awful service and mediocre food quality for what should be expected here. Really disappointing experience.

Perfect lunch outside on a gorgeous day. The crab cakes were the best we have ever had. We actually found the first order so good we ordered another plate. The second plate was even better because they came out hot. The first plate had obviously been sitting while we had our appetizers and they were just a little above room temp. The oysters and watermelon gazpacho were also phenomenal.

My wife and I were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and could not have
asked for a better and memorable evening.

The waiter was terrific. Thoughtful and attentive to our every need.

The Inn at Perry Cabin is in itself terrific ambiance. The music was very
romantic and great background music.

This was the 2nd anniversary in a row that we have celebrated at Stars and will consider
doing it again next year.

We were celebrating our 39th Anniversary and what a beautiful setting!! Excellent service, delicious oysters on the half shell and Rockfish. However, my husband ordered the $53 ribeye that was no more than a 1/2 inch thick. Unexceptionable for that price but we did not complain...

We had an exceptional meal. The tomato salad was absolutely wonderful and the pork tenderloin could not have been more enjoyable. Tomatoes were flavorful and the mint and tarragon in the green goddess dressing were perfect. The pork was cooked perfectly and the corn and green bean relish along with the sauces could not have been better. We order a Borolo wine which was a perfect compliment. The pork brownie dessert was unique and delicious. Vickie is a delight to have as a server.

We have stayed at The Inn at Perry Cabin and also enjoyed several dinners at Starz restaurant while vacationing in St Michaels. The food has always been extraordinary. The setting is worth the visit. However, we were disappointed with the service this time. The staff was not attentive, took too long to take our wine and drink order after we sat down, did not refill our water in a timely manner, and as it grew darker outside, we had to ask for a light on our table, even after all the other outside tables had one.

I’ve been coming to The Inn for many years now and always enjoyed dinning at the restaurant.
However, this time it was all perfect until we got home and my husband received notifications that we were charged more than what we signed off on the bill. He always takes customer copy with him so we double checked. I said the waiter must have mistakenly entered the amount so just give them a call and they can double check their numbers. We were told the restaurant manager will get back to us. We haven’t heard back from them yet. 48 later. I am very disappointed that they don’t take customer concerns seriously as this has to do with us being overcharged in a high end restaurant, and there is no one to call us and refund the overcharge and apologize for us having to deal with this unfortunate situation. Management has seriously failed in addressing this urgent request

We liked Stars. Food was good and plentiful and service was good. Wish the buffet had some regular bread options rather than bagels and cake style bread (carrot cake, banana bread etc.) Considering price though and the hotel brand, the atmosphere could be seriously improved outside. There were so many flies and it was impossible to keep them from landing on food! So much ended up going to waste as a result. I would probably return but would definitely eat inside.

I was thrilled to finally be able to lunch at Stars with a friend. I could have not been more disappointed.
The first two items I ordered were unavailable, a poor beginning. The soup was lukewarm. The rest of the food items were so heavily salted my feet are still swollen. To complete our wonderful meal my friend’s husband had called ahead to pay for lunch as a surprise. Apparently, this was beyond the ability of the restaurant to arrange this simple act. The surprise was on us as we were charged for lunch. We left the restaurant, Fred called to ask how it was and was shocked we paid. We then had to return to the restaurant and after a very confusing conversation finally get the charges straightened out. This is hardly the experience one would expect at a luxury property.

We had the pleasure of dining a few times at Stars while also a hotel guest at the Inn at Perry Cabin and it was just delightful. The food was consistently good and we especially enjoyed the Crab Chowder and Pork Tenderloin. It was outstanding. The deserts were not tempting but the appetizers and entrees were quite good.
