We stumbled on this restaurant, not knowing its reputation, but the decor (clever and unusual with lots of erecter set materials) and the food captivated us. I had my first fried chicken and waffles. Wow! (Could have used a tad more syrup, but the spicy butter was inspired). The bloody mary had too much black pepper, but the mini grilled cheese and bacon atop it made up for that!!

We were in town for a conference and had dinner Sunday evening at the Evening Star Cafe. Great neighborhood place with nice ambiance. Wine list is extensive and has plenty of local choices. The food was delicious and the service was terrific. The scallop appetizer was cooked perfectly - a great sear on the outside. The duck entree and rib eye entree were delicious and had great depth of flavor. The grasshopper cake for dessert was a great way to end the meal. If we are back in the area we would definitely eat here again.

Never having been disappointed, I made arrangements for visiting relatives to spend a special birthday here. That, and our own special celebration of joining the neighborhood tonight by buying a home, did NOT disappoint! Thank you, Chris!! Thank you, Evening Star!! ;)

Inattentive service with a somewhat tired menu puts the Evening Star on the over-rated list. While the food was OK, the lack of service made the meal frustrating. The neighborhood around the Evening Star is full of restaurants. I'd recommend giving some of the other local eateries a chance.

We sat outside in what is truly a great decor, the beer menu was creative and exceptional. Service was OK, although they did get our order initially wrong (quickly corrected) and we had to ask 3 times for silver ware after the salad was brought. I found the fish and chips way to greasy, but the wings were pretty good. We will probably go back, but not for the food
