Stars Ratings and Reviews
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.
We ate at Stars once for lunch and once for dinner. The food for both meals was outstanding. Fresh seafood and ingredients based around eastern shore traditions turned out fantastic!
We experienced a bunch of small hiccups so service was just OK. We got soup delivered without spoons, two different menus for dinner, a long wait for a glass of red wine because the manager with the key to the wine wasn't available. All of this was small stuff but prevent the service from achieving the same level as the good and ambiance of the Inn.
So glad I chose Stars for our 5th anniversary dinner. I was beyond impressed with the ambiance, the service, the food and the view. I had requested a waterview table for our anniversary ahead of time, but there were none available. We chose to sit outside on the patio, which was a great choice. Chance was our waiter - he was fabulous! Having been there 8 years, he knows the menu, had great tips on wine (we brought our own special bottle as well as special champagne glasses we wanted to use for our first toast), and you could tell he very much cared about the service he offered. I chose the crab cake appetizer while my husband chose the ceviche - the crab cake was probably the best I have ever had! My husband chose the hanger steak while I went with the duck. Again, the chef did an outstanding job on both! There was live music that was a perfect accompaniment to our lovely anniversary dinner. I would highly recommend visiting Stars if you happen to be in the area or staying for a long weekend there. Thank you, Stars, and Chance, for making our anniversary dinner very special.
We made a reservation for our 30th anniversary dinner, and were impressed by the surroundings. Then we put in an order for oysters, from a very limited menu of oysters--essentially one choice that was "sweet," meaning bland--and one of the six was broken. That is a bad practice when one is paying top dollar for these delicacies. We did not complain, but then the entree, a hot fish course, was brought cold. We asked it be reheated, but the vegetables were cold on the re-heated plate. The service was slow at first, becoming non-existent. We were pleased with the wine, so the restaurant has a good wine list. But the food preparation and service was poor. It was a great disappointment on a special occasion. We told other residents at our Inn of the disappointing service, and were told in return that a similar experience had recently been had by their son and daughter in law.
Special ordered a yellow cake with chocolate filling and white butter cream icing birthday cake when I made the reservation. Quoted price was $45 when the restaurant called me about it! Waitress didn'the seem to know about it when we arrived. Cake was stale and dry. Icing not what I ordered. Obvious that cake wasn't freshly made to order and definitely not worth the quoted price. Didn't finish the pieces served and refused to take rest of the cake home. Disappointed that a restaurant of this caliber didn't make a better effort. I expected better for the high prices charged for the meal. The waitress did take the price of the cake off the bill.
We recently celebrated our anniversary at The Inn at Perry Cabin with an amazing dinner at Stars. Our server was top-notch, the presentation of every course was exquisite, and the view of the water was lovely! I highly recommend Stars restaurant to anyone looking for a memorable dining experience!
Lovely, old-school ambiance and service. The House Caesar was unique without straying too far, and the crab cakes were perfection. Did I mention the butterscotch and pistachio sundae? It was so late when we left that all the stores in the small vacation town were closed, so they sent us back to our Air BnB with a to-go cup of milk for our morning coffee.
beautiful place. appetizers were good. my gf had the butternut squash ravioli special. very disappointing. she considered returning it. she did tell the waiter how upset she was with the food. i had the duck. i had trouble cutting it with a steak knife. also disappointing. for such a high end inn, the good was substandard.
Very impressed with Stars. To begin with, view of the harbor/boats/sunset was spectacular. Very elegant and serene setting, varied menu and first class preparation. I had the hanger steak, which was about the best steak I have ever had -- just superb. My husband had the duck, which was very good, but slightly chewy (the server had warned that if duck is cooked more than medium rare, they will slice it to avoid the chewiness. He had it done medium, so it was not unexpected). The appetizers were varied and all enticing, but I had the Crab Chowder which had a huge amount of lump crab in it, and my husband had local oysters on the half shell, which were delicious and nicely presented). All in all, it was a wonderful experience, and one to remember. But I wanted to especially mention our server, Kelsey, who could not have been more knowledgeable, but was also charming and unobtrusive. She knew exactly how much information to offer, her recommendations were spot on, she was well-informed on how dishes were prepared, efficient when something was requested, but never hovering, and had a wonderful personality. She was the perfect server, and we were so happy to have someone like that for our special occasion.
This was our third visit to Stars. After a beautiful drive from Annapolis, we were seated at a table with a view of the water. The lovely fresh flowers were a perfect compliment to the beautiful decor and the classic "old school" feel of the dining room. The service was friendly and attentive and our selections were delicious. The four of us left feeling as if we all had been guests in a private home. The ambiance of the Inn, plus the beautiful setting and gardens make for a perfect day. I would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area!
Can't beat the food and the view at Stars. We were there for lunch to celebrate a birthday. The wild salmon wrap and the crabcake were very good, although the roll for the crab cake could have been smaller as it somewhat overwhelmed the cake. Our server was attentive and very nice, great service. We think the ketchup for the fries was homemade, it was delicious!
We've been coming here for years are never disappointed with the service or cuisine. This is the first time the food fell short of expectations. The succotash which normally accompanies the crabcakes was sparse, and, for $45, we thought seemed parsimonous. Same with the sides that came with the $40 rockfish dinner, which virtually swam in a sea of white porcelain. Apart from this, all else was perfect as usual.
My husband and I visited this pass Saturday evening. We both ordered appetizers which were very good. My husband ordered the fish, which included one shrimp cut 3 ways, which was not very good(especially for 40 dollars). I had the chef special ravioli dish which was good, but not what I would expect from a restaurant rated a four star. We were at the Tides Inn for two dinners prior to visiting your restaurant. Their food was outstanding and not rated a four star.
We most likely would not return to your restaurant or recommend to a friends.
We started with crab chowder it tasted good how ever you think a $14 bowl of soup would have lumps of crab meat, not at Stars. There was very little crab at all in it. My wife ordered the crab mac & cheese, not good very heavy on mustard very little crab. I ordered the Rock Fish. Served a tail pcs. With skin and blood meat tasted strong from the blood meat. Meat was gray. For $40 you would think it would be a large pcs. Of white meat. It is hard to believe the chef did know you remove the red meat before cooking! Don't waste your money meal was very expensive and very poor quality.
Beautiful! We dined early (6pm) as we were making our way from the Baltimore airport to Delaware and decided to spend a little time in St. Michael's, per a recommendation. We chose Stars based on various site's reviews and were not at all disappointed. We sat right at the window looking out on the water and enjoyed an absolutely delicious meal. It is a beautiful property and a great restaurant.
