My friends & I were visiting Charleston for a week and wearily wandered into Stars after a lunch-less day of sightseeing. We chose the Monday night special - a 3-course fixed price option with a bottle of wine & a side order of truffle fries - and it turned out to be the very best meal of our trip. The service was fantastic - flawless, in fact. The food was better than anything I've had in Boston (my home town) for many years. We had a fresh kale salad with the perfect amount of dressing to complement the greens. The main entree, sliced tenderloin over truffle grits was phenomenal. None of us were fans of grits, but the ones they used were "courser" in texture, giving them a mashed-potatoes flavor. The butterscotch creme brulee was also made to perfection. If you want modern southern cuisine that will rival anything you eat in New York (Yes, I liked it better than The Post in NYC & Maison Blanche in Paris.), you need to stop at this venue.

My boyfriend and I ate dinner here a few weeks ago on a romantic getaway to Charleston. We chose Stars because the menu sounded good, the weather was nice, and they have a rooftop bar. We made a reservation, were seated promptly by a friendly hostess, and were excited to try the many delicious-sounding menu options. Our high expectations were not met, unfortunately. It was extremely loud inside the restaurant, to the point of not being able to hear each other screaming across our small two-person table. Additionally, the bruschetta and flounder tasted like the Dead Sea. I didn't have high blood pressure when I went here, but I could very well have left with it, considering the ridiculous amount of salt in these dishes. Upon "finishing" our meal, and sending nearly the entire plates of food back to the kitchen, no one bothered to ask us if there was anything wrong with the food. The lesson I have learned from this experience is as follows: if you want a fun drink and a cool rooftop atmosphere, this is the place to go, but if you want a delicious and romantic meal, look elsewhere to one of the many fabulous Charleston restaurants.

We went to Stars for apps and a few drinks and everything was incredible! It's rare when you find a restaurant where each dish is that impressive. The rooftop bar is really nice and has amazing views. I would highly recommend going to Stars and can't wait to go back.

Great place. You can tell they invested nicely. Great views on roof top bar. Heaters up there cause it was chilly outside. Food was fantastic

Upscale food, served very slowly. The food was slightly expensive but well prepared, and the general decor and atmosphere was very good. This place is probably worth visiting at least once, but be sure to pick a day with good weather to get the most out of their rooftop bar.

The best rooftop bar in downtown Charleston. In the upper king street area with delicious food. The desserts & drinks on the rooftop were perfect. Looking forward to my next steak, oysters and drinks!

This review is about the rooftop bar. First of all, i was there two times and the second time we were overcharged on all of our drinks which were watered down, and the bartenders gave us some stupid explanation about it and were very condescending and rude... Second, we thought we smelled manure and tried to move to another table.... Anywhere you sit except for the bar smells like manure.... Oh and don't forget the bugs... Horrible experience.

Great happy hour spot and for enjoying the sunset on the rooftop bar. We will try the dining room next visit. The owner greeted us and was very pleasant.
