“Could have been great but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Ok, the Stars restaurant has it all - a room so tastefully decorated that Martha Stewart would approve, a stellar view of the bay with sailboats gliding into the sunset, high quality food expertly prepared - but it wasn't the wonderful experience that it should have been. Maybe it's the patrician atmosphere of the inn or the pretentious attitude of the staff, but it just wasn't the relaxing, enjoyable experience that you'd expect from a top notch restaurant. Also, the food was good but there was nothing interesting or inventive to the dishes. I have been to many high end restaurants in my travels and while Stars was very good, it was still a bit of a disappointment. Sadly, these people are not nearly as special as they think they are.

Stars offers upscale dining and you won't be disappointed. The duck was amazing. I've been to the clambake as well; however, buffet style is just not for me.

“Ok but expensive ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

It's good, really good. But expensive and if they think you don't belong they don't talk to you or give you the same service as others. But they should be careful who the are waiting on, they never know who you really are!!!

“The "Stars" dining is top notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We celebrated our anniversary with a dinner in Stars. Beautiful view of Chatham Harbor. They gave us a free bottle of champagne and the steaks were terrific. Lovely meal, great service; but not inexpensive.

The tables in the outside restaurant were great. Amazing views. However, the food was nothing special.
