I've been going to Starlight for years for dinner, but I had never visited during bar hours. I was very surprised by the half-priced liquor Tuesday and the friendly service at the bar, but I was a little disappointed by the obnoxious college stupidity everywhere. That's the nature of the beast in Ellensburg, I suppose, being a college town. The... More

everything is a challenge hear getting the right order, getting your drinks and so on. The salad was sloppy the nachos lacked personality and the service was weak

Starlight is good for burgers at a good price! We attended on a Saturday night @ around six. The place was empty but proceeded to get busy a little later. Our server was, surely, new as she could barely describe the special as a burger with pork and bleu cheese (and who knows what that meant?). For the establishment being... More

I love writing reviews about places that I have enjoyed - a good hotel, a fine meal, an excellent entertainment value. I also will give any support I can to an establishment from my town. Unfortunately, I can't do this for The Starlight Lounge. Had a dinner for 4 the other night with an appetizer. We had five dishes that... More

We were up for Jazz in the Valley and having had a drink there earlier, thought we'd stop back in for a bite. What a surprise!! My husband had meatloaf, and we're talking "gourmet meatloaf" like you'd find in a fine dining restaurant in the big cities. Likewise, I had a bourbon steak that was to die for. By the... More

We've dined at the Starlight on a couple of occasions on the way to/from Seattle. We discovered it by chance one Saturday whilst attending the local farmers market. This restaurant is located in a historic old building, with a bar and restaurant section within. Having had both lunch and dinner there, I can say that the food was very good... More

Went here for Karaoke with friends. My husband had never been in a casino before. He had some potato skins that he really liked. I had the steak salad and it was good but the meat was cold when it arrived. I also had some corn chowder that was too thick but ok. The service was good but the girl... More

When the starlight first opened it was actually really good and reasonably priced along with great staff....now? Not impressed at all. The service sucks, the food is average, nothing over the top but the price was outrageous. I really think the starlight needs to acknowledge they are more a bar and cater to the college kids and just serve apps.... More

I go here specifically for the salmon Caesar salad. The service used to be pretty terrible, but I tend to go on weekends around 2 p.m. Good service from a friendly server and great salmon. Like great. I haven't tried the martinis but my husband doesn't really like theirs. He gets an old fashioned when we go; says they're the... More

Very tasty food. I haven't had anything there I haven't liked. Service is always great, and the drinks are wonderful. Prices are a tad on the high side for dinner, though. Very nice atmosphere and exposed brick in the historic Davidson Building.
