This restaurant/bar in downtown Ellensburg is set in a beautifully restored historic building. This place is conveniently located and surrounded by interesting things to see and do, including others bars and shops. I would encourage walking or biking here, as it is right downtown, but parking is free and available on the street. The service was great. Our server was... More

They make a good drink. The bar side is a fun place to eat and hang out. Restaurant side is lacking something (energy or what I'm not sure). Service is hit or miss. Food is good, but nothing to rave about. Though they do make a mean cobb salad and meatloaf.

The food was excellent. Service was thoughtful and timely! It has a gruff appearance but a heart of gold. Quite charming!

The Starlight has it all: great drinks, great apps, great food, GREAT atmosphere! It is a really cool place - and I mean cool, actually cool. From the exposed brick to the old wood tables and booths, to the hip wait staff, the place is just cool. The food is also great. I can't say I've ever been disappointed by... More

I love to drop by here for drinks and appetizers after work. Later in the evening on the weekends is festive as well! The food is always good (they serve till 9pm), with the chicken or steak quesadillas the best of the choices. Appetizers are 1/2 price till 6pm, so on top of it, a great deal if you go... More

Stopped here for lunch on the way from Idaho back to Seattle. This bar is in downtown Ellensburg, away from the highway, but Wes worth getting away from all the typical fast food places they are putting by the highways now. I had the portobello mushroom with cheese sandwich as I was not in a meat eating mood. Was quite... More

Went here with friends who highly recommended the Burgers. We were there after 6 PM. Place not overly busy. Ordered the burgers 5 total. It took over an hour to get our orders. Drinks were forever getting to the table in that hour. I asked the waitress for bottled water 3 times and she said two of those time that... More

I have always enjoyed the atmosphere and the drinks, but I do not recommend the salads. They are over dressed and I didn't think that was possible ~ but it is! Tried it a second time and same thing. You will have to ask for dressing on the side if you want a salad.

Good food, the shift transition after dinner to late night hipster bar was a bit awkward for staff. All in all, nice experience.
