I travel quite frequently for work and I must say Starky's is one of the greatest restaurants in the country. Delicious food, fun atmosphere, very reasonable prices (especially compared to major cities,) and the staff is incredible! The wait staff is beyond wonderful-very friendly and incredible service. Starky's is an excellent place to eat, you definitely won't find yourself disappointed!

Starky's has THE BEST calamari fries we have EVER eaten! Not the little chewy, tough rings...I'm talking small drumstick sized pieces of the best white meat you'll ever eat!! They are served with sliced pepperoncini and capers. And if you go between 4-6pm for happy hour they are almost free!! Stark's "happy hour" menu has a great selection of items that are "over the moon" delicious...you could have an early dinner on the appetizers alone!! AND to top it off we had a huge scoop of homemade vanilla bean ice cream...yes I said homemade...and carrot cake that made us glad we saved room. (We took part of our dinner home in a bag so we could have coffee and dessert!!) Our thanks to Kyle, too, for the phenomenal service. 5-Star evening all around!! Did I mention they make their own bread and pastries, too??

Kathy, my wife and I visited your restaurant Friday night 3/8/2013. I will give you 2.5 stars out of 5 for the following reasons:

1. The waitress was very sweet, but she didn't bring us waters until we asked. I saw her bring other tables water, so ???
2. The spring roll appetizer was very cold in the middle. We asked for her to take it back and bring us another hot one. She or the the kitchen staff forgot and it never showed up. I finally had to ask the waitress about it when dinner arrived. She apologized and took it off the bill.
3. My wife asked for extra black beans for her $9.50 salad (which contained no meat!!!). The salad came with few black beans. Very expensive for what was received at the table.
4. Halfway through the meal I asked for a second beer. The waitress, again, forgot. I had to ask her about that too and then she went and obtained the beer.

I think my wife and I have reasonable standards of quality and service. The restaurant didn't deliver. Frankly I'm surprised the place was busy with the quality of food and service we received. The waitress was the red-head who graduated about 3 years ago with a degree in photography, if that helps you figure out who she is. I felt very bad, but I gave her no tip for the above reasons. I would recommend you take a look at your staff and food...in a competitive market you have to be at the top of your game!

Thanks

Hello, you may remember me, I did speak with you at your table about the mistakes that happened during your visit to Starky's and appreciated your willingness to be specific. For all the hard work we put into training and managing, sometimes things do not go as planned for every guest. As you mentioned, we were slammed on a Friday night for a reason, we try hard to deliver great food and great service and Bozeman knows that they can rely on us for a great night. Once in a great while, a server can have an off moment or the kitchen can make a mistake. We apologize that unfortunately, a few of those happened to ruin your dinner experience with us. We have already convened a management review and have posted this review in our kitchen and with the servers. We try our best to do what's right including our commitment to the community, our staff and our guests. We hope that you when you return to Bozeman, you may come again and experience why we are so busy! Best of Luck to you both.

I love this place for lunch, it has very unique sandwiches, something for everyone. I love thier new service to the tables, used to be you would walk up and order, but now they wait on you and they added beer and wine. They have outside seating for summer which is really great. They have the best cookies in town. It is my "go to" place when I am in Bozeman.

Always a delight, though I miss the chicken and waffles. Had their Cuban Rueben last time and the crab cakes the time before both very good.

Thanks, Shelby! It was our pleasure to create food for you and we are thrilled you enjoyed Starky's. We are thinking about revisiting the chicken & waffles, so many people did not understand them, but we are glad you did! Keep posted for new and exciting dishes coming this spring.
