“Fine Food-Fine Dining-Great Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Over the last seven years we have had quarterly occasions to visit in the Lewsburg, West Virginia area. We were thoroughly surprised to find a local restaurant on the main road through town that serves up absolutely great food. We make it a point to go after 1:00pm for lunch to savor the "Trust Me Salad" and/or the "Naked Burger." One cannot get seating around noon because the place is so crowded due to its popularity, hence the recommended 1:00pm show time. The atmosphere is most welcome, the service is excellent, the staff talks with you, even the chef on duty will talk with you! The staff promises me that there are absolutely no calories in any of their desserts prepared by a local bakery chef, I think a relative, so enjoy a great meal topped off with a mouth watering dessert. I promise you that you will return again and again as we have!

“An excellent bistro !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We attended on Saturday night with a group of 20 persons. The restaurant is not large but the tables had nice room between . The food and wine selection was enjoyed by all. The service was excellent and attentive. We had a peanut allergy that was handled professionally.

“Superb Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

The Stardust Cafe is a gem of a restaurant on Lewisburg's main drag. It has the atmosphere of an American bistro, and an international vibe in this small West Virginia town. On our most recent visit, a Morrocan chicken dish was featured, along with a chicken curry with coconut milk. Both were authentic and delicious. The wine selection was good, with reasonable pricing. A house salad is served with most meals, though the menu could be clearer on that point. Many folks stop in for a delicious dessert and fine coffee, and perhaps to enjoy the inviting aromas, mood music and buzz of conversation that gives Stardust its vibe. Everything we have eaten here has been fresh, often locally sourced, and expertly prepared. Wish they had outdoor seating -- they would do it right!

“Simply Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Wonderful lunch dining experience today. I truly cannot say how much I enjoyed it. Had the butternut squash soup and the sausage and cheese sandwich on ciabatta. The soup was very good and the sandwich was fantastic, terrific, amazing, and then some! Can't wait to go back again. It may have been a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. I would do it again in a heartbeat! Make this a definite stop on your trip here. I have eaten at many of the local restaurants and hands down, this meal has been the best to date.

“Fun Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Dining out for me is not just about the food, although I completely understand that it is for some people. Atmosphere is high on my list and the wait staff can make or break the entire experience. Regarding atmosphere, if a restaurant dresses a "dinner" table with a vinyl cover I'm probably going to have a problem. Even white paper over a white cloth will speak volumes over vinyl...I just don't get it. That being said, we have enjoyed the Stardust both at lunch time and dinner time (no vinyl ever, yea!). The food has been from really good to really great, the service has always been outstanding. The menu and drink selections are pretty impressive and better yet they change it up, which also rates high for me. This is a small space serving up a big experience so cut it a break if it's crowded and noisy at times. If you have to wait for a table, order a glass of wine and enjoy the people...Lewisburg always offers up a diverse crowd of folks. My very handsome husband and I had an awesome lunch experience right there in the middle of lunch hour rush on Labor Day. Rock on Stardust, you are clearly doing something right.
