Traditional breakfast menu. Nothing special. My eggs were over done. Service was fine clean and nicely decorated. biggest complaint was , in my opinion , over priced.... for the price I would go somewhere else for something more special. Try it for yourself!

I've been there dozens of times in the past few years and the food generally is very good. but the service is inconsistent. The coffee is too weak. Also, there's been a large turnover of waitstaff probably because business seems to be down. During my last visit the waitress walked out about half-way through our meal and she nor anyone... More

We went back to Sea Star Cafe for lunch. The place had new owners. The walls were painted and the whole place looked good. The server was friendly. It seemed to be a family run business. We were happy with the food and thought the menu was large.

My husband and I were in town for 4 days. We had lunch there every day because it was so good. Every time we came in, the cafe was full and everybody seemed to enjoying themselves. The Philly steak and cheese is to die for. The fresh side pasta salad is the best I have ever had. The cafe is... More

I'd been a regular once or twice weekly customer here for four years, but the food has really gone downhill lately with the revised menu, new cook, and changes in suppliers/ingredients. Potato soup with the consistency of peanut butter; soggy, doughy breading on the fried fish; cardboard-like crinkle-cut fries; hot dogs barely four inches long; annoyingly familiar and presumptuous new...

It started when the server was coughing I to his hand , and continued to place toast into toaster and placing condiments on the tables..the breakfast was very expensive, however the coughing and non washing of hands made me want to run out..we ate our food reluctantly, picking about..the bacon was extra salty and my husband said it was the...

We had not been back to this family run place for awhile (20 minute drive) and it has changed owners. Same décor but a totally different vibe....very quiet...we were the only customers at 9:00 am. My wife's cheese omelet had very little cheese and while my Greek Omelet was filled with good stuff, the eggs had a strange consistency...like dried... More

My husband and I are long time local residents who eat out frequently. We stopped into Sea Star for lunch today. Restaraunt was less than half full. We sat at our table for 20 minutes. No one came by. Staff seemed oblivious. Another couple came in 15 minutes after us and their order was taken right away. No one even... More
