Good breakfast at reasonable prices. My favorite is the chicken fried steak and eggs with grilled biscuits. Coffee always fresh and delicious. Service is friendly, but not always as prompt as would be desired.

There aren't many diner-style restaurants in Novato where you can order a variety of food (IHOP is the only other one). Star Restaurant has been around for many years. The food is good (I mostly order the sandwiches) and service is hit or miss depending on when you go. The last time I was there was on Friday evening and... More

I enjoyed this restaurant when visiting my brothers house nearby. Had some burger with fries. Both done well - higher standard. Service was nice and caring, Not disturbing. It was very different for me as european, but it fitted in the image of American resturant.

I went here on a Saturday evening and was seated right away. It wasn't busy at all. Even the small dog seated a few booths away seemed to be enjoying itself. (Definitely wasn't a service dog.) The menu is very extensive with selections that seem to cover many different cuisines. The prices weren't cheap but maybe average for the area.... More

We try to eat here often but when the lot is full we just go somewhere else. It is very good food cooked to order.

A small restaurant that serves everyday meals for a fair price. I think it's a good place to bring the kid's for breakfast or lunch.

Perhaps the least inspired food ever. I have the feeling that almost no one there is under 70 years old.

I think people in Marin County must have lost their taste buds. I have just moved here and am struggling to find decent restaurants, so I tried the Star Restaurant based on the reviews. We walked in and my first thought was... "Oh my gosh, this looks exactly like a Denny's." Our food took almost 1/2 an hour to arrive.... More
