Heard a lot how good the burgers are and had to try it for myself. Walked into this cozy bar and was immediately attended to. They had a great specials menu, I wanted to try their roasted corn chowder soup but they were all out. After I finally made up my mind I went for the morning glory burger which... More

Truly excellent burgers at this spot. Combination of ingredients on them is so flavorful that you don't even need to use any ketchup on the burger. The fries are nice and crisp and a side salad offered has a delicious dressing and whisper thin slices of red onion to give it a little kick. The pulled pork nachos are also... More

I had a really fantastic hamburger there--perfectly cooked, good quality meat and nice crisp, flavorful truffle fries! It was so good, I felt compelled to tell multiple people about the food later that day. Even the ice tea was great. I will definitely go again and hope the food is just as amazing.

Our daughter and son in law took us here for lunch while we were in town to visit. Very cool little pub. I had the BBQ wings, wife had a Portobello sandwich, kids had a brunch special dish, eggs, bacon, etc. All good was excellent. Good selection of craft beer, most locally brewed. Mimosa's were good. Nice place, worth the... More

The White Star is very local, very well adorned and comfortable. The service is immediate and you do feel at home right away. We stopped in after 10pm on a Friday night for a late bite. I ordered a Ballentine Ale on tap, which I haven't had in years. It was great, and I didn't remember it tasting so "Sierra... More

This is another local bar/restaurant that does both fairly well. The beer selection is top notch, and the menu is pretty good. For me, it doesn't have as good a selection for my taste, but that's personal. They have a broad range of offerings, and everything that I've ever had has been good. I am fond of their rotating selection... More

When I moved to JC 4+ years ago, I stumbled upon White Star bar. The exterior of the restaurant was simple, highlighted by a basic star symbol above the entrance. The interior was equally as simple; it was small with seating for approximately 30ppl and another 10-12 at the bar. There was a jukebox, local artwork on the walls, old... More

The food itself was good, particularly the thick bacon slices. But they took almost 50 minutes to bring our food, because first they took forever to get our order, and then they failed to successfully make my partner's French toast. Twice. What came out the third time was, according to him, very good; the first attempt was rejected by the... More
