We ate here with two other couples for a get-together. The environment could have not been better. It's a fancy enough restaurant to know you are somewhere nice with good food but not pretentious as these more expensive restaurants can be some times. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating. The FOOD was all delicious. My wife got shrimp &... More

I've always loved the food at Starlight, especially the burgers. Friendly atmosphere and great service, even on busy days. I do wish they had more choices.

My girlfriend and I went here yesterday on a date. She ordered the duck breast and I ordered the NY strip. They were both so delicious. It's a bit pricey but the food was worth it for sure.

Went for Sunday brunch and not full. Waitress initially came to table for order and didn't return for over 30 mins. Food took 45 mins. No excuse for delay. Food just ok and small in size for price, no doggie bags here. Would not go back.

Umm... what shall I say... Well, I have to say that when we walked in (reservation at 8:30) and were seated immediately, but up next to the window. When we were seated we looked out side and noticed on the window a smashed bug so we had our waitress bring something to clean the window off. Once we received our... More

This place used to be classy. While the food has remained more or less consistent, the overall cleanliness has gone down the tubes. The restrooms are not clean (smelling of urine, with the odd cockroach), and there is often a child running in and out of the kitchen. It's too bad. When Jimmy is working, you'll get a great cocktail,... More

I went here with friends my first night in Greenville. What a great dinner! The service was great, food even better. One of us had the shrimp and grits which was very tasty, but the rest of us had the crabcake special which was to die for. Portions are not enormous but I was full after dinner. We also had... More

Stopped in with the wife on a spur of the moment trip into Downtown Greenville. The atmosphere was decent for what is a very old repurposed space (this was the Perculator when I was in school during the late 90's) and I was surprised to even see a white table cloth establishment in downtown. The service was great. The food... More

We found the Star Light several years ago by pure luck when we had no idea what might be available in the area. This visit was to refresh our memories and see if the food was still as good as we remembered. We were not disappointed!! This was one of the best lunches I've had in a long time. Rather... More
