Stars Ratings and Reviews
We came into town exclusively to hear the Eric Felton trio. Pair that up with a great restaurant venue and an excuse to spend the weekend at the Inn at Perry Cabin and a fantastic meal all around! Make sure you ask for Wayne or Chance, they will not disappoint in helping delivering the perfect experience!
Beautiful view. Sat next to the window on a chilly, but bright day and had a panoramic view. Food was good. Service was neglectful. Took a long time before our waitress stopped by. And then a really long time to get our food. The waitress, when delivering our food, said the chef sent his apologies that it took so long, but he didn't like the way our lunch turned out, so he made us new meals. It was nice to know what was going on, but it would have been better if they had told us that while we were waiting or offered us a complimentary dessert.
The service was impeccable! Our server's name was Wayne. We had the choptank oysters which were fantastic. The crab wedge salad was also great. We had the rockfish and snapper. Both quite large portions and well prepared. They had a classical guitarist playing which was very nice.
Dining at the Inn at Perry Cabin is always a special treat and Valentine's week is no exception. The service is always impeccable, the ambiance with a view of the water is perfect and the food doesn't normally disappoint. The only disappoint this time around was the lack of Miss Gussie's Cheese rolls as a poor substitute was offered by the kitchen. If you're going to the Inn you'll find they eliminated the cheese rolls which were always a hit with ever dinner. With the recent change in chefs at The Inn, the kitchen should consider bringing back the rolls. I'm sure we are not the only dinner's that will voice their disappointment.
We drove to St. Michael's from Annapolis solely because we are tired of the dining choices for Valentine's. It was a nice day, the drive was easy (about 1 hour) and we purposely chose the earliest seating. The dining room was quite empty when we arrived (we like to eat early anyway) and were offered a table at the window which was lovely. The waiter was very attentive throughout our meal.
We had cocktails to begin--my husband had a Winterberry which was very good; my Cava with hibiscus was lovely.
We had steak tartar as a starter which was superb...interesting accompaniments to it made it a stand-out. We both had sea scallops as a main course and they, too, were delicious (a 4th scallop would have been greatly appreciated). The risotto was interesting and the Brussels sprouts very tender.
The one off-note was dessert. While I wasn't up for a big chocolate dessert, the special we chose was somewhat disappointing: a very light chocolate bombe with a macerated strawberry center. Too flat after the wonderful dinner..then, again, not overly filling.
There was a guitarist providing background music which was very nice...better than loud recorded or speaker-produced. I would have appreciated hearing familiar tunes..especially some of the romantic songs but it was also a welcome change from a piano (which they have for other occasions.)
We don't go to the Inn often as it's a bit of a strain on our budget so save it for special events. This worked very well for us on all counts and we will add it to our list for future events.
I suppose a rose to take home would have been an extra-nice touch but I wasn't disappointed (other restaurants have done that for Valentines)
Very disappointing. My husband and I had been looking forward to a beautiful view and a lovely lunch.The view was lovely. Our waitress was very nice. The meal was terrible. The chef should be fired for what he did to the crab. My crab cake was overcooked and soggy. The cream of crab had entirely too much butter....it was laying in pools on the top of the soup. Shame on this very expensive restaurant for such poor quality.
Stars has always been on our list to dine at when in Saint Michaels. The chef always has something amazing on the menu and the ambiance and views are the best in town. If you are looking for a nice relaxing lunch or dinner on the water, this is a must-book restaurant.
We had a very disappointing meal, despite high expectations. The service was painfully slow, which made the meal drag out unnecessarily. The food quality was not as high as I expected, and was warm but not hot. I certainly expected much better from a high quality hotel such as this
We went here as this seems to be "the" spot in St. Michaels and we were celebrating an occasion. The ambiance was beautiful and I imagine during the daylight or summer hours, it's stunning to look out into the bay. However, the food was a little disappointing and we found the atmosphere a little too loud for us to have a conversation. We talked throughout the whole meal, but we both felt we were speaking loudly and could hear everyone else's conversation around us too. So it seems like the acoustics in the window room weren't great. There was a guitarist playing live music which was a nice touch, but again, made us feel the need to complete with him to hear ourselves. Our waitress was attentive enough and pleasant.
When calling ahead to check the dress code and whether gentleman were required to wear suit jackets, the response was "jackets are basically recommended but not required." Seemed like a very interesting way to answer it almost as if they haven't figured out how to identify themselves. Either there is a dress code or there isn't but don't waiver. Once there, we found it to be more of a west-coast vibe when it comes to "anything goes" in terms of attire. Most people were dressed up but few men were wearing jackets and a handful had (nicer) jeans on.
My husband had foie gros which he liked but personally didn't care for the fig chutney. I had an heirloom tomato salad. Being that it is November, I should have realized it's not tomato season and they perhaps they shouldn't have been on the menu. The tomatoes weren't very flavorful and were slightly mushy. The salad was also too overdressed. For dinner we both had fish which was cooked to perfection though-- he had the halibut and I had rockfish...and the sides served with each were decent. We did not have dessert.
The cost was what you'd expect to pay at an upscale restaurant so no complaints there. Just overall, we had expected more out of the experience.
This was my second time at Stars, the first having been on the same day (our anniversary) in 2015. That first experience was excellent, which is why we chose to go there again.
This experience was disappointing. We waited for a very long time to place our orders; our waitress seemed to have disappeared. I flagged the hostess to tell her we needed to order. She then assigned another waitress to step in -she was prompt and pleasant. We could tell she was overstretched, but at least she was around when we needed her.
Our first waitress reappeared after 30-45mins, and was waiting on other tables and happily conversing with other guests ! So she did not appear ill as I had imagined. Whatever !
Our second waitress remained over-busy; it took over 30 mins to catch her eye for a second cup of coffee !
I'll have to think twice about another visit or making recommendations.
Four of us enjoyed a special dinner last Saturday. It was not quite warm enough to sit out on the patio, but if you go, and the weather permits, that would be my recommendation. It is beautiful there - with a lawn rolling down to Chesapeake Bay. The food is wonderful - not overly inventive, but really well done. The beet salad was especially good, as well as the crabcakes and the tenderloin. This is not an inexpensive place, but it is worth the price. We had complementary truffles for dessert as we were too full for the real deal. Make the drive for an elegant evening.
Beautiful location. Pleasant restaurant with overall nice seafood dishes. Declasse untrained overly familiar restaurant staff. Management: please train the waitresses in professionalism and good service. Actual remark when salad for both was forgotten: "when things are slow I forget more often". Really? i can imagine that but please don't share that. I am not a colleague. "oh-do you still want the salads?" Yes, Ok. Off she went and a back of the staff person brought them 5 minutes later. AFter our meal. In fact, the person who didn't seem to know English(not a problem) was the best wait staff person there. Quiet and professional.
I do not like a lot of small talk either. Please take order, smile, deliver what I ordered. Service horribly slow. Deadening really.
Had wanted to stay overnight as we have before but just went with a day trip due to family issues. Not sure I could bear to stay now as restaurant is a weak link.
ps. Manager stopped by but this was early in the meal(ie drinks) and he never returned.
Inn at Perry Cabin is a spectacular setting and sitting out at a fire pit with a glass of wine watching the sun set was a nice time. Inside the food at Stars is rather stodgy. The fresh baked bread is outstanding, entrees and starter salads were unimaginative and unmemorable. Breakfast at Stars was imaginative and delicious...so a brunch visit would be lovely.
We stayed at The Inn at Perry Cabin and ate at Stars the week-end of Halloween. Everything
was beautifully decorated for the fall. Our dinner at Stars was lovely and delicious. A little bit
pricey, but worth it for a special occasion. We would love to return sometime soon again.
Have dined at Stars at Perry Cabin in the past. It is a pricey spot but the ambiance, waterfront location, food and service have always been outstanding. Unfortunately, this time, some in our party found their entrees to be less than memorable. Maybe we will try it again.
Great service, stunning view, and spectacular food. We are crab aficionados and the crab melt is quite possibly the best ever -- perfectly spiced, jumbo lump, absolutely incredible. The crab melt is truly in a league of it's own, it is that good. We drove nearly two hours to eat at Stars and will most definitely return, soon and often. Highly recommend this restaurant.
It had been probably 15 years since we last ate here, but it is still a very fine place to dine. Our waitress was extremely helpful in suggesting an appropriate wine (a Spanish Alberino) to go with her Stars BLT (hickory smoked bacon, Boston bibb lettuce, avocado, sliced tomatoes,
toasted brioche, Dijon mustard mayonnaise). I had a nice Italian Pinot Grigio with a wonderful Softshell Crab Sandwich. The food is worth a day trip from anyplace in the DC or Baltimore metro area.
The food was good (not outstanding), but service was extremely slow and the prices high in comparison to the quality of the meal. Our dinner at the Stars restaurant took 2.5 hours – for a salad, entrée and dessert! We had better meals (and far less expensive) at other restaurants in St. Michaels (Bistro St Michaels and 208 Talbot). On a positive note, our server was very nice, and the live guitarist was excellent.
Had a fabulous anniversary dinner at Stars! Spectacular views and 5 stars all around! The menu was fantastic. Presentation and taste was above and beyond expectation. Staff was extremely attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend for a special occasion!😊
New chef is outstanding ! We had stopped going because the previous chef added hot mustard to every meal, probably because he was a heavy smoker (which I saw on several occasions).
Food is now fresh and fantastic. Always a bit pricey, but I think worth it.
Get a cocktail, sit outside near the water, watch the boats on the Miles then head to the main dining room for dinner.
If you're from out of the area spend the weekend. The rooms are fabulous.
We keep going to the Inn at Perry Cabin because of its location on the water and the beautiful views. The service at Stars can definitely be improved as it slow and the value for the food is better at the bar. Last time we had a salad at Stars for $22 which was tiny and should have been listed as an appetizer whereas we had a salad at the bar for much less and double the size.
