A Popular Welland Eatery for decades

The Blue Star has been around at least 40 years and provides meals like Mom used to make for the family: tasty, good portions, well-prepared and cooked. The menu is extensive and one can choose to eat in the front portion of the restaurant in a booth or in the larger back section with tables and... read more

This popular Welland eatery has been around for decades. Service and food quality have definitely gone downhill. We ordered the salad as part of our entree, they arrived cold and fresh. I was Impressed so far. THEN.....the rest was awful!!!!! No bread/crackers were served or even offered with the salad.The broasted chicken I ordered was tasteless, absolutely no seasoning at...

poor service and cold food, you have to pay for city parking as their lot is extremely small, used to really enjoy dining there, but things have changed for the worse

The food was good but unfortunately was overshadowed by the horrible waitress. Sat there waiting to be served while other tables around us received their service. Did not bring salads before dinner -- who wants to eat their salad after their main course. Did not check for refills on drinks. Had to chase down desert that was offered with main... More

Anyone who grew up in Welland or Port Colborne grew up with The Blue Star. It's like going to your relative's for a meal. Nothing fancy by any means, but great diner food! Everything from bacon & eggs, Monticristo or pancakes, to pretty much ANYTHING you could imagine for lunch and supper. Everything is good! My go to is either... More

The food here is not the best around. It is bland and not homemade like it used to be. The service was comical that it was very minimal. Pre-made food seem to have taken over the menu. Long gone the days when the Italian and Croatian made it all from scratch.

This is exactly the kind of solid, homemade, diner food we've been trying to find in Niagara. The service is warm, very friendly and quick. Don't miss the perogies (best we've every tasted!), the desserts (the chocolate pie is incredible), or the wraps (mine was filled to bursting with juicy roast beef, sliced mushrooms, and cheese). They also manage to... More
