Great Steak

If you are looking for a great steak this is it. Friendly service. Small with limited seating and nothing fancy. But you will be hard pressed to find a better steak or better price than right here. I do believe it was the best meal I had during our 5 days in NOLA.

I ate there the day I left NO and had the fried shrimp. The breading was thick and tough. I have eaten there in previous years and food was good. (Lobster, steak, fried shrimp and oysters )

Our server Kevin was friendly and polite. My bf has the ribeye and lobster it was perfect. I ordered the surf and turf and it was horrible. I wound up sending 90% of it back. Very bland and was never asked if I'd like something different.

This was a pleasant surprise. It was not my intention to eat steak during my 5 day stay in New Orleans but one of my friends wanted to. Needles to say he is a better friend now! We got Star Steak and Lobster House's name out of a magazine and to our surprise the food was really good. I had... More

Very bad smell in the restaurant, dirty tables, took almost an hour for our meal, not great taste, too expensive, 18 percent tip already included, for an average evening.

My family and I dropped in for breakfast. My daughter enjoyed the french toast with pecans and shared a bite with us. It was very good. The portion was huge. My hubby and I enjoyed our breakfast sandwich served on french bread It came with I side of potatoes and they were very well seasoned. An overall great meal.

The Star Steakhouse is one of those hole-in-the-wall places that doesn't look like much from the outside. It's a long, narrow room, and it's on Decatur Street, which is off the beaten path a bit. However, I found it to be well worth the trip; I would highly recommend the Star if you're looking for a great steak at a... More

This restaurant had great crab cakes! The po boy was delicious. The dish with étouffée, red beans and rice, and gumbo was to die for! The staff was very friendly. Would go again.

After the disappointment of missing a tour we had scheduled (tip: street cars are fine, but don't depend on NOLA public transport buses for anything!), the Star Restaurant offered the sweet solace of a wonderful, leisurely meal. Staff is very friendly, attentive (i.e. professional, not hovering), and they offer great suggestions when you just can't decide. The food was so... More

Get their early because it fills up fast. Filet was great cooked perfect! I got their early and just sat at the bar. The bar tender was friendly. The owner even came out to see how I liked my meal. I had the garlic butter sauce which was good and I am a garlic lover. Service was quick and the... More
