“Fun but service frustrating”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Star cinema is a fun family outing. It was frustrating that service was not very good. We enjoy it. However I would say to servers your tips are better when you try a little harder. Food quality has definitely improved.

“All in one movies... :)”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We go there often. We can take the kids if there's an age appropriate movie. The ticket prices are less than the big multiplex theaters in the area and the concessions are less expensive. If you take anyone under 17, you have to be with them at all times; the absence of loud, unruly, unattended children is one of the things that makes Star Cinema Grill so enjoyable. There's no waiting in line for food or drinks; you have a waitress or waiter who will serve you a full meal or snacks anytime before and during the show. I love the grilled shrimp tacos and fried pickles. We went twice last week. For adult night out, they offer a full bar!!!

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Great place to go see a movie. The movie we went to was sold out but still enjoyed. Only complaint was that I was one of four people. We ordered at the same time but they all got their food & finished their food before I was even served mine. I had to ask our waiter what the status of my food was. As soon as I asked he apologized and brought it to me within 3 minutes. The food was good. Will definitely choose this again over your typical movie theater.

“Great place to watch a movie!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This is the best place in town to watch a movie. You can eat and drink while you watch. Seats are comfy and roomy. Great experience.

“Great combo - movies, food, & drinks - & no unattended kids!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

We've gone here for years because we love it over any other cinema for several reasons We really like the ample leg room & extra space between every 2 seats the way they've modified the rows. The food is pretty good & a wide selection, as well as adult beverages. Very young children are not allowed, as well as no young teens without an adult, so no kids running around making a lot of noise & running around. Very nice for couples!
