Had a business lunch recently and we stopped here as we heard a great "watering hole" in the area. Lunch was ok, the reuben a bit chewy, the appetizer was good. Server didn't hear "cheeseburger", so the plain burger was ok. Not something to hurry back for, just ok, maybe a better evening "watering hole".

The food here is decent and there is usually a pretty lively atmosphere. When the weather is nice they open up the front's windows and makes it nice inside. The have a decent happy hour as well. I would recommend checking them out for lunch or happy hour.

We stopped here for lunch on a business trip and the food was delicious! The servers were very alert and instantly refilled our drinks without us asking. The food took a little longer then we expected but was well worth it. I had the chicken pesto parmesan with fries and I would definitely recommend it. I would go back again.

This is such a great place for happy hour and beyond. The prices were excellent, considering the huge portions. The drink selection was also awesome. The best part about this place is definitely the service. Our bartender was fantastic!!!

Came here on a Saturday night and I really enjoyed it. The crowd was lively and the food was awesome and not very expensive.

My friend and I ate here after visiting the Museum of Fine Arts, which is close by. I had read a few reviews and was pleased to see that the fried green tomato, homemade pimento cheese and bacon sandwich was just as delicious as the former reviewer stated. My friend ordered the portobello salad and took half of it home... More

I've been to this place a few times and it's the best bar food in the fan. Great selection, good portions, good beer and drink menu, reasonable prices. 3 of us had drinks and dinner for just over $60. Only negative - service was a little slow the last time, unlike previous visits. Otherwise a great place

I have visited a few times. Food has always been satisfying with a good variety to choose from. Atmosphere is great, especially in the summer with the windows open.

It‘s Star-lite now, and hopefully forever. But this location was originally home to Soble‘s and his famous burgers from 1987 to 2000. Devil‘s Kitchen was next (but only for a little while) and then we took over in late 2001. Ever since, 2600 West Main Street has been Star-lite . . . just the way we like it. As a tribute, we still offer the famous "Soble‘s burger" and of course — if it ain‘t broke, don‘t fix it — we‘ve kept the neighborhood bar atmosphere that‘s kept this place so popular in the Fan for decades.
