My wife, daughter, son in law and our granddaughter went back to Starks to see if it improved since our last visit in March. What a difference. The service and food were excellent. We all share the prime rib and this time we ordered it medium well done and it was perfect. Also, the best onion rings ever in addition... More

We attempted to go on a Saturday afternoon. Website said it was open. Got there is was very closed. It was rainy and windy. Yes we should have called ahead but i have never had that happen before. Also the location is not very nice. We watched a serious knockdown bum fight across the train tracks.

We had a rehearsal dinner in the private Wine Cellar with about 14 guests. It was a perfect location. Food was excellent. Service was fantastic. They treated us like we were special and attended to our every wish and desire. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Is a bit pricey but you do get what you pay for.

Wonderful old-school ambiance makes Stark's one of our favorite restaurants. Big, open dining room has a sumptuous, 1950s Rat Pack feel. Dark, classy and full of character with modern touches that make it oh so wonderful to be there. Pricey menu, delicious food. Great place for a date or special evening out.

My fiancé and I were in town celebrating my birthday and heard great things about this spot. I was a bit miffed at the beginning as we were told the wait would be 15 minutes. 45 minutes later I spoke to the hostess about this. She explained the kitchen could not keeping up and they were holding guests at the... More

I gave Starks a bad review, the manager sent me a message and encouraged me to try them again. I'm glad I did, because now I know the food and service deserved the high marks friends gave them. If you like oysters, you will love this place. Their drinks are very good, especially the cosmopolitans! The steak and onion rings... More

We decided to finally try Stark's Steakhouse because it had so many good reviews. I must say that our experience did not measure up to what we expected. I ordered crab "tots" - like tatter tots only made with crab. They were overcooked and I think a crab walked past them in order to be called crab. I didn't find... More

Went to Starks on a tip from our wine tender at Coppola. Make sure u call for a reservation as the place fills up quickly even on a Thursday night. Outstanding drink and wine list! In house aged steaks are the very best. Cooled to perfection! Take the time, spend the money and enjoy yourself!
