We were in the area of SR 70 and I-75 after a tour Southern Sarasota County and were hungry for a non-chain type restaurant for lunch. We did an Internet Search and saw that the Sea Star was within a couple of miles from our location. We arrived after the rush hour and were not dissapointed. After downing a bowl of home made chips, I attacked a loaded philly steak with a side of onion rings. Service was fantastic and my glass of diet Coke was topped off ever few minutes. The quanity and quality of the food was very good. Sea Star is a must if you are in the area.

Owner operated, service is good and they do a great job with the food. A hidden gem, one of the better restaurants in the area. Always busy.

Every town has one of those great little cafes or diners that all the locals go to. Well, in Lakewood Ranch...this is it. It's tucked away off State Road 70, but no impossible to find. The food is really good. Standard foods, like pancakes, eggs, biscuits & gravy and daily specials. Everything is made fresh to order, which is nice. The staff is friendly. I'm going with 4 stars simply because it's not a swanky establishment. If you try it out, you'll probably love it.

Nice little local breakfast / lunch / brunch cafe. Provides the complete range of menu choices expected from this type of cafe. Inside decor is fresh and bright. Seating is mostly 4-person booths plus limited counter seating. There is also a small outside seating area which basically overlooks the parking lot. Not alcohol licensed. Food is well prepared. Portions are generous without being "over the top". Nice range of omelet choices, in addition to more creative dishes such as Eggs Benedict and Coconut French Toast.. Egg-white and egg-beater optional for $1.00 additional. And, as the menu states... if you want something not on the menu, just ask, and if they have the ingredients they'll whip it up for you. Service is always consistently friendly and efficient. Coffee fill-ups offered often and without prompting. Over the past 3 - 4 years this cafe has become our primary post Sunday service breakfast location, and we have never left less than completely satisfied.

We tried the Sea Star a few weeks ago while looking for a new place to eat breakfast. Like I said, it's been a few weeks and all I remember was my general impression.

It's a small diner, and you better know where to look if you are going there. The Sea Star is tucked away in a shopping center off of Hwy 70 in the Lakewood Ranch area. As I recall, the service was decent and the food was a bit better than average. Open for breakfast and lunch.
