Stars Ratings and Reviews

Celebrated my wife's birthday recently at STARS. As has typically been our experience, the food, service, and atmosphere have been exceptional. We were very fortunate to have Chance as our server as he greeted us warmly once seated and offered complimentary champagne in recognition of our special occasion. His service was top notch throughout the evening and the food (I dined on cream of crab soup and crab cakes while my wife had a seafood salad) was excellent. The view at STARS is exceptional but somewhat diminished by the recent stacking of kayaks directly within the prime line of site by the docks. Can they perhaps be relocated elsewhere so that patrons can enjoy the beautiful sailboats and water?

Celebrated our anniversary last Monday - the experience in a word was FANTASTIC! The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The chef prepared soft crabs even though they weren't on the menu and they were superb! Cream of crab soup was loaded with jumbo lump and was exceptional. The atmosphere and view were second to none. Our server went out of her way to bring us a special dessert and topped it off with an anniversary good wishes note. The little touches really do matter and make for a wonderful experience.
We come here every time we are in the area (every 2-3 weeks) and STARS never disappoints.

Stars continues to disappoint. My usual strategy with a bad experience is to return in a month. If that disappoints I return again in 6 months. This last meal was at that point. Service felt very disorganized and erratic - just as bad as ever. Lots of staff in evidence but not very good attention to our table. Little things like asking twice for more butter, waiting a long time for wine etc. just shouldn't happen at a restaurant this expensive. The food was better than average but, again, poor quality for the cost. Three of us ordered Caesar salads: two came with a parmesan crisp of some sort, mine did not. The desert pastry was undercooked and doughy. On and on. Nice view though.

The food was disappointing and the prices were unnecessarily high. My girlfriend ordered a caeser salad with a crab cake. What came out was just one romaine lettuce leaf with a little dressing and the crab cake placed on the side. All that for $24 dollars. The crab cake was good not great, the salad was almost comical. I ordered a crab cake sandwich for $18. The sandwich was ok, but the french fries it came with were clearly frozen at some point and room temperature. The view was great, but the food and high prices were a bummer.

We have been to Stars numerous times. This visit was a little disappointing. Service was very slow, rock fish was overcooked, and martini at dinner was quite different than the exact same drink ordered before dinner at the bar.
When I made the reservation, I noted that this was a very special birthday for my husband and requested a table with a nice view. When we arrived, the dining room was only a quarter full but there was no table ready for us. They cleared a larger table with an "ok" view... I was disappointed that there was little regard to a simple request.
It was okay.
The service was impeccable. The menu was really good. Several items that made it hard to make up my mind. I got the tenderloin and was a little underwhelmed. I ordered Medium. To me medium shows red in middle. It was a little tough. My husband's entree was crab cakes. He said they were "okay". Okay, so fine dining, a little on the pricey side, so I would hope to have an exceptional meal. It just wasn't exceptional. However, it was our anniversary, and we were greeted with "Happy Anniversary" by staff and also given a dessert plate with happy anniversary on plate.
You can't go home again ....
We had one of the best meals ever here two years ago! But clearly something has changed. Service was incredibly slow and curt, though the dining room was not that crowded on a Monday evening. Drinks were scanty on their pours. Our first two choices on the wine list were unavailable. And the food was definitely not up to previous excellent standards - the filet was overdone, and the crisped skin chicken breast was tough and not crispy at all. Our waitress alluded to being short staffed when we gently inquired about how things were going overall at this resort. We won't be back for a while ....

Dined at Stars recently over two adjoining nights - view is always spectacular and service was pleasant and attentive. Enjoyed soft shells on night #1 but disappointed that they were not available on night #2. Equally disappointing was the fact that my wife's favorite appetizer - cold seafood mix (lobster, shrimp, & crab) also was not available. The menu is rather limited and could be expanded. Cream of crab soup was very tasty with generous portions of lump crab meat.
Five Stars for Stars Restaurant!
As we entered Stars Restaurant on Mother's Day, we were greeted by a server who presented me with a beautiful, long-stem, pink rose. Happily there was a table by the window where we could sit and enjoy the beautiful view of Chesapeake Bay. I love oysters, and this plate combined 3 Oysters Rockefeller with 3 raw oysters! Delicious! Our main courses, scallops for me and beef tenderloin for my husband were superb. We even managed to save room for freshly made Derby pie. I wish I could remember the server's name, because he was friendly and helpful. A wonderful Mother's Day experience!
Exquisite eastern shore dining
From the cozy pub for a pre dinner cocktail, to the understated elegance of this exceptional dining room, the simple yet delicious and beautifully prepared food, superb view and professional and attentive wait staff.... truly made this a memorable evening .
Great location and service, a bit overpriced
Celebrated a wedding anniversary. View/service were just what we were hoping for. Great wine list. Menu fairly simple but we both had fresh rockfish so no complaints. Service started off slow but our waiter was outstanding. We arrived early expecting to have a drink at the bar first. this was the only negative--bar area is tucked in a small room with no view and the service wasn't very good. I would recommend this restaurant if you want a memorable dinner for the location/view/atmosphere. We will probably try somewhere else in St. Michaels next time.
We've been to STARS on numerous occasions and have always loved the experience - this time, however, the meal was not in keeping with previous standards. Specifically, the crab cakes - traditionally one of our favorites - seemed to have more "filler" and less taste than ever. That was very disappointing, especially at these price points! Cream of crab soup, however, was fantastic as was the cold seafood combination appetizer. The menu is rather limited - could use some expansion. As always, the view is exceptional.
Stayed at the hotel, which is excellent, but the restaurant is disappointing. I wouldn't mind paying high prices for breakfast if it was the best breakfast I ever had. Service is slow and I received the wrong order. They rectified it by making another very fast and not charging for my entree. Food was nice and tasty but not worth the prices and wait.
Disappointing birthday dinner
My husband and I went to Stars while visiting St. Michael's for a birthday weekend getaway. We were very excited about a fancy dinner. There seemed to be confusion about our reservation when we arrived, even though I called to confirm that same day. I even got an email from Open Table saying we didn't show up for our reservation. We were seated by a window which was wonderful for watching the sunset. Our waitress hastily took our drink order and did not ask if we were interested in a starter. She took our order. Other tables received rolls, while we were offered none until midway through our meal. Our water glasses were never refilled until we asked. At the end of our dinner, we had to ask to see the dessert and drink menu. Our server treated us very causally throughout the meal. Perhaps she thought we weren't old enough to be in the restaurant, though there were at least two other couples in their 30s. For spending what we did on dinner, I expected the service to be of much higher quality.
Go for the view
The server (Chance) was great, though he had too many tables to be truly attentive. The menu is reduced in scope and does not appear to change daily, presumably for less qualified chefs to produce consistent results. Despite the reduced menu, the tenderloin was nowhere close to medium rare. I showed the server it was well done, but chose not to send the plate back. Also, simple things like the cappuccino after dinner was only a little above room temperature. An attentive server holding the cup before serving would have realized it was unacceptably cold. Disappointing dinner for $250+.
High prices with little value!!!!
After looking at the menu presented online I was a bit dismayed at the prices but didn't hesittate trying to make my wifes birthday special. Mistake!!! We got there and found the menu had been greatly paired down, BUT we finally settled on the Diver Scallops with risotto. Again Mistake!! Our dinner arrived presented with a mound of rissoto (greatly under cooked and very "crunchy") with four scallops each (hers were much bigger). At 42.00 I expected a bit more (have a bit of history as a chef myself). So we sent the plates back with the promise that they would remake all. 10min later our plates return with the same undercooked rissoto and only two scallops each?? So the waiter (who was very good!! Wayne) when questioned about the missing scallops tells me they usually only serve three scallops per plate WHAT!!! So it all goes back and we end up settling for the beef at 50.00 per plate. They were good. The Jazz band was also great. Would I ever recommend this retaurant to anyone.....only in the negative. We we ever go back Not Likly.
Not a great "value"
STARS is a good restaurant. It's not a fantastic restaurant. As such, the price paid for dinner for two was not worth the difference compared to another good restaurant. Is the view worth it? Perhaps. Probably a great place to propose or something, but not for a date night. There are more interesting places at better value in the region.
A perfect lunch!
Under the new chef, the food is better than ever. My salmon was out of this world! The Asian BBQ sauce didn't overwhelm it & it was cooked to perfection. The waitress Rebecca was solicitous and very helpful. We appreciated her suggestions. The view is always picture perfect because it looks out on St. Michaels Harbor and the Miles River beyond. The two-course lunch with a glass of wine is a marvelous bargain at $18. Go during March while this special is on and treat yourself.
wonderful as always
the food is always exceptional but very expensive. atmosphere is always special with attentive and professional service. they always try to go above and beyond to make the experience top notch. love dining here, but the prices keep us at bay except for special occasions.

We made reservations at Stars to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and couldn't be happier with our choice of restaurant. Everything from the ambiance, to the service, to the food was excellent. The service was a tad slow at times, but not extremely so. We will certainly return to this restaurant, and next time we're also staying at the Inn at Perry Cabin, which is an absolutely beautiful place.
Perfect Valentine's Day dinner
Greeted with warmth, and asked for our coats. Beautiful decor right by the river, live Jazz band by te fireplace. Server was more than polite and did everything he could to help us non-fancy diners. Food was the best either of us has had (crab cakes and rockfish entrees) and the cheesecake desert was beautiful and delicious. For a once a year venue, well worth the extra money and would absolutely go back for another exquisite, fine-dining experience!
Fancy brunch at a reasonable price
Considering how upscale the resort is, breakfast/brunch is pretty reasonable. Food, decor, and service were fantastic! My only slight ding is that the portion for my benedict was a bit small. Also, a more robust/gourmet coffee option would have been nice, but not required.
Always See Stars!
Had to cancel our dinner reservations because of an impending storm but had breakfast. As always, the service and food was outstanding. Very civilized is a good way to sum it up. In addition, Rebecca always makes thing special. Don't know how she puts up with my sense of humor but she does! Can't wait to come back.
Sad Brunch buffet
Ate here on January 1st. Was expecting lunch menu but instead got $50 per person brunch buffet. I wouldn't mind but the buffet was filled with many boring choices and even those were often past their peak (sad and dried out chicken and some accompanying item that was unrecognizable). The dessert table was equally sad with dried out breads and even brownies. Service was almost non existent. Too bad, as I was expecting more and better based on very nice lunch there this past summer. Hopefully Belmond (new owner) will upgrade the place and right the service and food flaws.
