Excellent food and great service however I️ made a reservation the day before, yet when we arrived, walk-in customers got window seating while we were seated at a table that had my back to the water. I️ would prefer that people who take the time to reserve their table receive preferential seating.

Stars management failed to contain a very noisy group of women celebrating a 40th birthday; their disrespect for other diners was extraordinary and restaurant management did nothing to ask them to tone down their enthusiasm making for a very loud and disruptive dinner. Food: restaurant of this caliber resort should realize that ahi poke should have more than 4 pieces of 1/4 inch cubes of ahi hidden under poorly dressed lettuce, but a bigger surprise was $50 for a steak which should be for a fine prime filet or NY sirloin, and not a cheap cut tough tasteless Spencer steak, drowning in a mystery sauce, accompanied with overcooked corn and carrots. My dining partner's entree of crabcakes also second rate given the locale. Extremely disappointing dinner.

While the meal itself was tasty and delightful, the cocktails and overall service was disappointing. My wife and I were celebrating our Anniversary at the Inn at Perry Cabin and had decided to give the onsite restaurant Stars attry for our special dinner - even though it had received mixed reviews. Unfortunately our expectations for a great experience were missed. The meal started on a high note with being given a prime window seat to watch the evening sunset, however the closeness of the tables allowed us to easily hear the conversations of our neighboring tables. After a review of the wine list, we decided on some classic cocktails. Both of our cocktailswere over loaded with ice and not properly mixed. We also had to request bread service and remind the waiter to refill our water glasses throughout the evening. Not a bad choice to enjoy a meal given its convenient location to our room, but certainly believe you should also enjoy some of the town's other great fine dining establishments such as 208 Talbot.

Would have expected a bit more in terms of the acutal meal. The ambiance is great and the service was very good. The food was good, but was not quite up to a 5 Star rating which one might expect at such a great venue.

Whenever we are in St Michaels we have dined at Stars at Perry Cabin. It is always a special night with fabulous food and ambiance. Unfortunately this year we were sadly disappointed. The chef and menu has changed eliminating the wonderful seafood selections as the poached lobster and sea food tower. All things change in life. Some things shouldn't. I'm sure we'll try it again in a few years.
Sorry,
Walter A Stucki

In my opinion Stars has the best cuisine in St Michaels. Not cheap but worth the price. The dining room overlooks the Miles river and gardens surrounding the resort. It is bright, comfortable and elegant but not stuffy. The menu is not long but they have a choice for any taste. Seafood is key as one would expect at St Michaels. The chef has an artistic flair as the recepies all have a novel touch but still of modern style, fresh local food.

 (Chicago)·Dined on August 25, 2017

While The Inn at Perry Cabin is delightful and is a great spot for a long couples weekend, Stars Restaurant is the hotel's weak link. We had planned an anniversary dinner- and communicated that in the reservation notes, which was obviously known by the dining staff as they congratulated us when we arrived- only to find out that they had a "special table" for us alongside a family of twelve, complete with screaming kids. We decided to wait in the bar for a quieter table that never came, ultimately settling for a poor table location that no longer mattered because the family had finished. Why not eat outside, which was our whole goal in the first place, you may be thinking? Well there was an "event" that night.

OK, stuff happens, right? Let's put aside that the restaurant manager utterly failed in any kind of planning- perhaps a table by the window for a celebratory couple?- and focus on the dining experience itself.

The food is highly average and overpriced for what it is. My rockfish was "fine"- certainly nothing memorable in either flavor or presentation. Ditto my wife's dinner. What I WILL remember is the dour service from a server that had no interest in salvaging our evening. She seemed uninterested in even being there. The final indignity was a bread pudding desert that seemed to take a half hour to arrive, and predictably, when it arrived, was cold. I didn't even bother telling our server, because by that point, my mood matched hers. Did we see the manager from the time of seating on? Nope. He didn't stop by once to ask if in spite of the table our evening had improved; in fact he never stopped by at all.

Do yourself a favor: head a block away to 208 Talbot, where we dined the next night and had a wonderful evening, managed by people that get it and a chef with inspiration.

What a disappointment. When we were seated and the menus brought out our waiter noted that there were limited menu choices as the kitchen was being "refurbished". There were 5 breakfast choices/4 lunch choices/5 dinner choices. We were dining at noon and asked if we could have breakfast but we were told that was not an option. There were not many other patrons in the dining room, but in spite of that, service, though pleasant, was painfully slow. Drink orders arrived not correctly with small pours. The lunch choices were limited - $12 for a hot dog which came overly done on a dry bun with bagged chips. So sad, as the surround was breathtaking. We won't be back.

What a wonderful view of the beautiful Chesapeake! The Stars dining room was so tastefully decorated in a traditional nautical theme. The service was wonderful. How did everyone know our name? Fresh flower arrangements on the table and all the food courses appeared to include something that had grown in the Chef's personal garden right on the property. We never felt rushed but pampered! We hope to return soon.

Rockfish, salmon and crab cakes were all good but nothing that you could not have gotten elsewhere at better prices. The ambiance, service and view have the starring roles here and justify the price. Their website was very outdated and featured specials that we were told had expired months ago.

Our experience was just average and for the money it should have been spectacular. Very overpriced, especially the drinks. We were hoping for a special dinner because it was our anniversary. However, the food and service was not special at all, as we had hoped. They seemed to rush us at the beginning of the meal, but we never saw the waiter again until the end of the meal. The restaurant has lovely views so the ambience was nice, but it was rather loud.

We were disappointed in the restaurant but would give them the benefit of the doubt as they had a abbreviated menu due to kitchen repair. That being said they had a salad bar with no lettuce, the pieces of rockfish served as the entire were the smallest I've seen in any restaurant (although they were good). The potatoes served were over cooked hash browns. We had breakfast the next morning and the omlet station had numerous flies landing on the the items you could choose for your omlet. I'd probably give them another chance when the kitchen is back in full operation but thought they could have done a much better job of execution even with the abbreviated menu.

A beautiful room with outstanding views over the Chesapeake. The soft guitar in the evening and the background piano at brunch were great. The menu was very good. The service was just ok - not bad but we had to ask repeatedly for condiments and when the food came out not all the menu items/sides came until we asked.

The average entree was around $40 - we expected better service.

We went for a special long weekend away. We ordered the crab chowder which came full of shells, medium rare duck which came out well done, and a rock fish that which came over cooked and over seasoned. When we saw the bill well over $200, we both agreed we would never be back. Over priced, every food dish had an issue and mentioning an issue to the waiter only got us rolled eyes. Avoid this place unless you want to set your money on fire just to watch it burn. I would recommend Ava's instead

Let me preface my comments by saying that we have dined frequently at Stars over several years and the experience is typically exceptional - such was not the case on our recent visit. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and had so indicated while making our dinner reservation via Open Table. No acknowledgement by staff ever was made either upon our arrival or more typically via a complimentary dessert, as has typically been our experience at Stars. Instead, the service staff seemed very new and inexperienced and not in keeping with such stellar servers as we have previously experienced (e.g. Chance). As example, just a short while after being seated, someone was running a vacuum cleaner in the vestibule for a good 10 minutes while we were trying to enjoy the atmosphere - why wasn't this cleaning done prior to guests arriving? Moreover, we were seated within a short distance from a very boisterous and obviously inebriated couple who had come from the pub and were pretty oblivious to the fact that there were actually other guests also there trying to enjoy a special moment. Never once did any staff ask these folks to dial it down. Although there are many other dining options available in the St. Michael's/Oxford corridor, we expect Stars to be a cut above and such was not the case that evening. We left disappointed and questioning if/when we might be returning.

Food was outstanding. My wife and I both had the rockfish, which was better than I even expected. For dessert, the chocolate pecan pie may have been the best I've ever had (though I would have liked the pie warmed a little bit). The reason I can't give the restaurant 5 stars was that the service seemed rushed and they had the lights turned on bright (for our 8PM reservation), so it felt like we were eating inside a family fish house rather than a 4-star restaurant. I even asked our server about it and she said the lights flickered if turned down low. Still, about 8:45 (when our rushed dinner was about over) someone dimmed the lights. A little late for us. The bright lights also seemed to encourage loud conversations around us. If I return I'll request an outside table next time.
