Nothing to complain about, everything was superb. The service is great and friendly. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is just as good. Been there a few times and have never been disappointed once.

“Relaxxxxxxxxx.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

Set in a prestigious part of Yas Island, this restaurant, bar, has something for everyone, children's area, bar with TV screens, and separate restaurant for the smokers. The atmosphere is vibrant, and this visit was during Ramadan where generally restaurants and bars are more reserved.
Be warned book advance, as you might have to sit in the smoking side and it was very thick.
The staff are very attentive and friendly. The food is pretty basic, mine was cold on arrival, but there is plenty ,and my fellow diners enjoyed theres very much.
The setting is beautiful with the marina,and depending on the time of year some impressive bath tubs bobbing in the water.

“Chili con carne in the desert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

A friend took myself and another friend to this culinary ode to the United States. So what better way to start than with the nachos? They were just okay. A bit thin on the cheese to be honest. No foodie here but one doesn't have to Michelin awarding winning kitchen to call nachos as they see it.
Moving on, the chili con carne hit the spot. THe ambience is sports bar with a special on the F1 theme.
Bars n' Stripes is a big place too. We were seated inside. Hot temp in the evening + ramadan= I think equals indoor dining for the guest but don't quote me on that.
The beer was refreshing so there are no issues with consuming during Ramadan. I was glad to learn of this place and if I'm back on Yas Island, I'll stop in again for a bit of USA comfort food.

“Cheap hard rock copy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Not a bad meal I had a burger which was average but no complaints, my partner had chicken fajitas which came as a mountain of a plate of chicken with 4 small fajita wraps. She thought it was nice but I wasn't impressed with the chicken, seemed too soft as if it had been boiled, not my taste. Price wise it was ok 180dhs for two mains 2 corona and a pint of cider.

“From Strength to strength.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

Most of the work in and around Stars and Bars is complete and overall the look has improved by leaps and bounds.

Service has improved, and is more attentive and friendly. The bar has a great vibe and energy to it. Certain sections have brilliant views of Yas Marina and the Yas Viceroy Hotel.

There is indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoor, if you would like to smoke a Shisha. The inside has both smoking and non smoking sections. They have a lovely Jack Daniels Signature pool table as well. I wish the management would fit proper lights for the pool tables.

Plasma screens showing sporting events are scattered all over.

The food exceeded expectations. The steak, baby back ribs, Salmon and roast chicken were all delicious and flavorful. We ordered a Philadelphia seafood soup that was as good as a main course. Very generous with the seafood, but maybe they should consider a different sauce.

They have a large selection of cocktails as well. One of the cocktails was served a little weak, and when we pointed that out, our server was happy to change it at no extra cost or hassle.

Overall, as this was a repeat visit, I found that the service and quality of food had improved by leaps and bounds.

Worth a repeat visit? Definitely!!
