“Stars Waterfront Cafe -- Worth the trip alone.”
Reviewed August 29, 2003

We stayed in OIB this summer (2003), and stumbled upon a restaurant called Stars Waterfront cafe on the island. This place has THE MOST AMAZING FOOD. We ate there three times the week we were there. It's not the typical Calabash fried everything. In fact nothing was fried. This restaurant rivals any restaurant we have eaten in in Baltimore or DC. The dishes were inventive, beautiful, and some of the best food we have ever tasted. Scallops with peaches, bacon, and chanterelles were to die for. Tuna grilled on one side only (raw on the other) and served with spicy caviars and wasabi foam was amazing. Beef filet with chocolate vinaigrette was truly weird and truly delicious. I would almost drive from Baltimore to eat at this place.
