I've heard this place was much better than it was.

My husband had his bowling league party here and I was excited because I've heard the food is excellent. I was sadly disappointed. Don't get me wrong..I LOVED the soup. It was great (Beef Barley) and the salad was pretty good too, although lacking in amount of veggies that wasn't the lettuce... read more

The Blue Star Restaurant has been a Welland favourite since 1947. To be in business that long they must be doing something right! Located at the very south end of King Street. Word to the wise, don't let the neighbourhood deter you. This locale was a going concern when Welland had a vibrant steel industry, but now the steel factories... More

This is a well established family run business with the best breakfast in town. They are busy but prepared for the crowds and have a bunch of hard working waitresses waiting for you. Parking is a bit of an issue

This is not the same place of years past. The food and quality was very poor. They were once the place for good homemade food. What happened?

Approx. 35 family and friends gathered for dinner the evening before our mother's funeral. We chose this restaurant because it was a favorite of the deceased when she was able to get around. We booked for 30 but extra guests arrived and the staff very graciously set up another table making certain that everyone had a place and was comfortable.... More

I stopped here for lunch this week. It was my second visit in three months. I have worked in the area for years and the Blue Star used to be a "can't miss" lunch spot. It was always crowed with equal numbers of guys in suits, guys in steel toes and retirees. But this place has really declined over the... More

Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner, Blue Star always satisfies. Takeout menu is great too if you don't feel like cooking, or have a crowd coming. Perogies are really good, cabbage rolls ditto.

Their loaded fries, taco's, and steak poutine are my favourites... sometimes it's hard to go there, because it brings back old memories, however, this has always been a favorite place to go to within my family. Their chocolate pies are better than Betty's, and when I had their prime rib dinner, it was better than fireside imo.

Having tried out the restaurant three times , I think I should have been impressed by now. I'm not. The surroundings are grey, and uninviting. It's located near an old factory site in south Welland. I was told that their fish and chips were incredible. Well, I think things must have changed. Inside it was crowded with the locals and... More
