It's disappointing to see what used to be such a great place going down hill. A few of the waitresses were rude/blunt & not friendly, but the guy was great who took our order and delivered the meals. The meals were basic, nothing over the top. I ordered the burger, which looked great but the meat patty wasn't great and... More

Alarm bells should have gone off when we walked in at 1pm and only other people in restaurant was staff. Two below average serves of fish and chips and 3 Boags tap beers $83:00 ....... never felt so ripped off.

My partner and I called in for lunch yesterday. Have always had a good experience. Staff were great. When the meals arrived they were WAY below par. I did mention that we were not happy with the standard of food that had been served. Staff took the feedback on board and were very apologetic and took that into consideration when... More

Had to wait an hour to get a meal then when it arrived was absolutely terrible. They had run out of nearly everything we tried to order. My father ordered a seafood experience from the menu and boy, it was an experience! There was no fish, and bits of scallops that looked like people had previously eaten. When we complained... More

We ordered 2 servings of the salmon spaghettini. It was the size of a small entree, (we left hungry) and it was only just warm. My husbands steak was under cooked from what he ordered. We have been regular customers here for over 20 years and this was the worst meal we have had at the Star Bar. Disappointing as... More

ordered the fish and chips. 1st piece of fish was ok but the other was dry and basically inedible. Waitress said she'd tell the Chef. My response to such bad customer service is to tell EVERYONE else

I met some girlfriends here for a catch up. Have been coming to the starbar for many many years. I must say it's looking a little shabby lately. Floor looks like it needs a very good clean! We had to ask for our tables to be wiped down both inside and out before we could sit. Pizza was ok. Had... More

So great to find a menu you don't have to study hard to find a gluten free and dairy free option....and it tastes fantastic. Thank you.

Enjoyed a pizza with a friend after the 'lighting of the Christmas Tree', even though it was busy the service was friendly and fast and the pizza spot on. Well done Star Bar.
