My family and I loved our lunch at Star Cafe. The fried chicken was so flavorful and fresh and the sides were all very good. My husband absolutely loved the cucumber salad! Desserts were fabulous and the service was with a smile. We will be returning.

I don't like to write reviews that aren't positive, but this place is very disappointing. My wife and I tried them for breakfast, and hardly anything on the plate was satisfying. But we thought that it was just an off-experience, so we went back for a dinner. We didn't even finish everything on the plates; it really was disappointing pretty... More

Great fried chicken at the star cafe. Squash casserole was excellent also. I didn't care for the garlic cheese grits--very bland and soupy with cheese sprinkles ontop. If you are ever in Goodlettsville be sure and enjoy a meal

After seeing this on Tennessee Crossroads I really wanted to try it. I had the fried chicken, my husband had the meatloaf. I tasted his and I didn't like it (too loose) although my husband did. My fried chicken was ultra-ordinary. I asked for the bisquits and even tho it was only 3PM they were out of them (odd in... More

We have lunch here frequently. The meatloaf and chicken are delicious! They also have amazing desserts.

We stopped in for breakfast on our way out of town. Delicious potato cakes, pancakes, and eggs. The biscuits and butter are star shaped. I highly recommend that you drop by for a meal!

Read other reviews. Decided to try this cafe. Very disappointed. Place not very clean. They have a simple menu, but were out of items. Did not mind substituting. However fried chicken was not freshly made. Mashed potato and gravy not even warm. Soda even had funy taste and was served in a cracked plastic glass. Waitress was good, but the... More

I've been eating at the Star for years...always consistently good food, prices, and service. The fried chicken is often the star of the menu here, though the baked ham is another favorite. Really I have not had a bad meal here. Usually we go there for lunch or supper, but their breakfast is great too. They've been in business here... More

First off, their fried chicken tastes exactly like my grandmother used to make. This is a big compliment! All of their food is great if you like southern fare. The restaurant is in a small older home and has a really cool feel to it.
