Worst Customer Service

The guy who sat us down was very friendly and allowed us to sit earlier than our reservation, but after that the service was horrible. Our waitress was slow, we waited over 30 minutes for lobster bisque appetizer which was not hot and lacked any lobster meat in it. Then we waited about an hour and... read more

This was a great place for breakfast!!! I had an amazing oyster benedict with sausage. My brother has this red bean omelette that was out of this world. I would definitely go back here for any meal! The service was awesome as well. Great place!!

Just had the seafood platter at the Star. The plate was loaded up with shrimp,oysters, a clam cake and some of the best tasting catfish I have ever had! I swear the broccoli side was half a head of the great green veggie which was cooked to perfection. To top it all off the service was great and friendly. Last... More

Had dinner here in October, 2014, and what a wonderful experience. Star Joey greeted us at the door and he is really great. Very personable and loved hearing about his grandchild! Our server was Penney and she was also great. The food was awesome and we all really enjoyed the atmosphere. Best customer service we had in our stay in... More

ordered the 2 lobster tails dinner and it was cooked to perfection. At first the location was off putting, it kinda looked like a hole in the wall but once the food arrived it blew the decor away. The website requires reservations. During the week we made reservations for 2 for dinner, only to arrive to an empty restaurant and... More

The new owners have remodeled the place and moved the bar to the front. I am guessing it was done to attract customers off the street for cocktails. However, this is not Bourbon Street and only saw one customer at the bar the whole time we were there. Unfortunately, the place has lost a lot of it's charm. Even has... More

Food was great! I had the blackened catfish with fried crawfish tails and my husband had the prime rib. Both were delicious!!! The seasoning on the fish was amazing! The fries were seasoned great as well.

We celebrated our birthdays on 1/4/2015 by having surf & turf at Star Steakhouse in New Orleans. We chose it after reading reviews here on tripadvisor.com. We had just been in NOLA for four days at Christmas and returned after our Carnival Dream Cruise for New Years. The meal was excellent as well as the service from all involved taking... More

My boyfriend and I got a groupon and went for a 6p. reservation. The atmosphere was ok, though online it seemed more upscale. We ordered the bbq shrimp appetizer with the surf and turf entre. I will say the shrimp was awesome with a nice heat to it buuuuutttttt... the lobster was too soft, we were given a well done... More
