Stars Restaurant - Rooftop & Grill Room Ratings and Reviews

I'm not normally a fan of a brunch buffet but Stars does it right. The made to order omelettes come quickly and done to perfection. Buffet stations are replenished regularly and often so that the food is always fresh. Drinks are good and presentation is lovely. Our server was entertaining and always on hand to help with our requests. All in all it was a brunch to remember for a double occasion of Fathers Day and our anniversary. I would recommend Stars for brunch and we will be back.

Definitely one of the current "hot" spots in Charleston based on the line outside as we were leaving, but it seems to be mostly for the rooftop. Food was okay but thought the menu limited. She-crab soup was very good. The atmosphere in the dining room wasn't anything special. Service was fine. Given how many great restaurants there are in Charleston and for this one to be so popular my opinion is obviously not in alignment with the majority.

We tried the bacon tater tots and tomahawk pork chop. The tots were basically burnt on the outside, but softer on the inside. The pork chop was so salty it was basically inedible. The only saving grace was the ice cream shop next door.

I took two of my best girlfriends who came in from out of town to Stars for a birthday dinner. Upon entering the restaurant, you would think that it is a fancy and hip establishment. We were excited for delicious food followed by cocktails on the roof. As it turned out, the service was horrible and the food was mediocre/good. The waiter lightly tossed us the menus and drink list, mumbled his name (it was Eric according to the receipt), and seemed annoyed that we were interested in the specials for the night and asking questions about the menu. It was not busy when we arrived. We were one of 4 tables seated at that time. The meal we ordered was ok, but nothing great for the price of the food. I ordered the mini crab cakes and they smelled and tasted fishy. Good seafood should not smell or taste that way. The kale salad I ordered was a large portion and tasty. After dinner we tried to salvage the night by getting drinks on the rooftop deck. This was also a mistake. There were many more people at the rooftop bar and only one bartender. I was waiting for over 25 minutes before leaving with no drinks. It might have been worth it if there was a tremendous view, but much of the beautiful skyline of the city was obstructed. Overall it was a disappointing experience and embarrassing to take out of town guests to such a place when I was hoping to show off the positives of my city and the food scene.

The place was well over rated and priced at that as well. We selected the "paella" special as they put it and ended up with a piece of fish on a WHITE bed of rice with no flavor at all for any of the food. The servers seemed more concerned that our glasses of water were empty and kept filling up our sparking water glasses! Not for us and would not recommend it at all.

Not what I expected. Thought we could dine outdoors...you can't, drinks only on rooftop. Food was OK. A little better than typical bar food. Decor was meh. It was a fine experience, just expected more. Come here for a drink on the roof, or a burger/bar food nosh. Nothing spectacular...so many other places to experience in Charleston!

Our waiter, Zen, made the night very special for my daughter's 19th birthday. He started out with fries white truffle oil...the meal was fabulous. Then he brought her a flaming baked Alaska type dessert that was actually a smores and Happy on the plate. Zen gets best waiter, the restaurant gets 2 thumbs up!!
Ginger Berry IceBox Cake dessert, best in town
We go to Stars pretty regularly - we are too old for the pick-up bar scene which is one of the best in town if that is what you are looking for. We go because the food is predictably delicious, there is something for everyone's palate or dietary issues (the meat lover, the seafood/fish lover, and the vegetarian, small plates and large plates), the service is reliably professional and excellent, and there is a very good assortment of wines and liquors for everyone's tastes. Last night we were going to pass on dessert but opted for the special, a Ginger, Lemon and Berry IceBox Cake that absolutely astounded all three of us as at least one of, if not truly, THE very best desserts in Charleston! The waiter said it was for ginger lovers, but in fact, that was not an overwhelming flavor. The flavors were sublimely balanced with a light crunchy "crust" and creamy lemon ginger filling that was tart and sweet and savory all at the same time on a layer of perfect summer berry sauce. Each of us had different choices for dinner that we were completely satisfied with, and some of which was shared, yet this dessert topped of our summer meal better than anything we've ever had. We suggested they make it a regular feature, or at least a more regular special for the season. The pastry chef was pleased with her experiment when we called her out of the kitchen and told her how we felt, stressing that is should be a very regular seasonally adjusted dessert. She should win accolades for it! Well done!

One of the best brunch locations in Charleston (and it might very well be the best). Every food selection is top quality. We have brunch here ~once/month and we have never been disappointed.
Fun for a large group!
One of my favorite restaurants in Charleston! It was my second time dining here and we came for a bachelorette party with a large party. They were able to accommodate 7-8 guests a week in advance, which was great. The shrimp bisque was AMAZING! Everyone really enjoyed their meals and cocktails. The rooftop bar upstairs is a plus for before or after dinner as well.

We ate dinner at Stars with 3 kids (8, 6 and 5) and although there are no kids menus they gave us some great kid friendly options. When we first walked in and were sat down I was worried about having my kids with us but my kids are pretty well behaved and our waiter was AWESOME! There was just enough noise in the place so i didn't feel like we needed to whisper. We loved the flounder beignets and the scallops for our appetizers. We also enjoyed the red snapper special and burger for our entrees. We really enjoyed our meal and will eat here again when we come back to Charleston!

Went for brunch at 12.30. Waiter came right away but it took almost 20 minutes for our cocktails. Worse, the brunch buffet was picked over, ( eg, the "charcuterie" had no meat left), I had to ask for plates , and the tables had messes and spills. At$24.95 each before drinks, it wasn't cheap. We had guests and were embarrassed .

A bit expensive, even for brunch, but the fried chicken eggs Benedict was heaven!
10/10, especially for a big group!
I had 7 family members in town, as well as my date, and I had forgotten to make any dinner reservations! Luckily, Stars was able to accommodate us same-day even though it was a holiday weekend and everywhere else was packed. All the better because I have a few family members that are ardent foodies, and they would've balked if the experience wasn't top notch. Stars came through in every way! The food was amazing, the service was great, and the wine list was on-point. Plus, we could just walk upstairs for post-dinner drinks on the rooftop bar instead of heading to a new location. Many thanks to the staff for such a great experience!!

Awesome service and amazing food! We went with a very large group of 12 for our bachelorette visit and could not have been more impressed with our server and the restaurant! Would definitely recommend as a must go to spot for the roof top views and spectacular food.
Great night out
Service was professional, prompt, and excellent. The food was delicious. I can't say enough good things about the evening in general.

We had a large party of 12 on a weeknight with extended family celebrating a birthday and following our wedding in Folly Beach. The staff was excellent, food was great and all the little details were on point. Thank you to all the Stars staff for making our last night in Charleston perfect!
We had Sunday brunch at Stars and it was excellent, from the food to the service. It may seem a bit pricey at $25 but this isn't your usual brunch spread. Besides the typical brunch menu, there's an amazing selection of cheeses, crackers, smoked salmon, salads, fruit, Benedict and desserts. Beautiful and inviting presentation.

Evening started great right off upon opening the door. Was graciously greeted, and seated at a wonderful large circular booth. It was my wife and I for an anniversary dinner. Waiter Justin was most informative and provided undivided attention and service. Food was outstanding and very well portioned. Can't wait to return. Start off with a cocktail "Made man in Charleston " definitly can't go wrong
Tremendous food, excellent wait staff, beautiful rooftop for drinks afterward. This was an amazing experience all around in a beautiful city.

Great food and night cap on the roof was fun
Definitely arrive early and go up to the roof top bar. A great list of cocktails and the view is beautiful. When we were seated for dinner, our waiter was wonderful and knowledgeable. The specials were truly special and the food was wonderful.
The rooftop bar was a great place to see the sunset and a view of the city. We enjoyed that both nights of our stay! Dinner was fantastic downstairs on the first floor. Great ambiance! I highly recommend it. The bartenders and wait staff are very friendly.
Stars Restaurant Brunch
Stars Restaurant - Mother's Day Brunch 2016 We needed a last minute Mother's Day reservation, and chose Stars based on availability and proximity. We were very glad we did. Everything was wonderful. The service was attentive but not obnoxious - we loved our waiter. The space was attractive, comfortable, and quiet. The food was well presented, varied, and tasty. We plan to make Stars our regular Charleston brunch spot.

When we arrived we were about 6 or 7 minutes early. I ask the Gentlemen at the front desk to give me just a moment because I wanted to see the view from the roof. He told me no and that they needed to seat me right away because it was going to be a busy night. There was only two other tables that had customers seated at the time. AND when we left there was 6 tables that had no one seated and no line at the door. He spoiled my night and you will never get another dollar from this guy! Halls Chop House to eat from now on. Dewberry hotel for the views. You can become unsuccessful one person at a time, becarful.

We went to Stars on graduation day after graduation. It was our first time to dine there. The food, service and ambiance were all very good. There were many different choices of items for brunch and many different desserts. Everyone in our group enjoyed it.

What a great experience especially after our night at Blossom! This totally made up for the previous night at another restaurant that was a big disappointment. The food was excellent and the service was awesome!! Our server Zan was terrific. The complimentary champagne and dessert was just what we needed after our poor service from the night at Blossom. This is our third visit to Stars and we were not disappointed on this special occasion of celebrating our anniversary. So glad we chose to be here on this night!

Good food but rude waiter. He literally threw my daughter's silverware onto the table then acted as it he was making a joke. He was very condescending. We won't be back.

We took my daughter here as a yay you made it to finals week! The brunch was a buffet with many different choices of yummy food. My daughter is a Vegetarian and she had no problem filing her plate several times. I had shrimp and grits for the first time and loved them. The service was the right amount of attentive! We will try dinner next time we are in town!
