There is never a question when eating at the Downtown Grill about the quality of the food or the service. The batter dipped Shrimp is better than any seafood house. The entertainment at night is a casual sound and great for all ages.

We wound up spending the night in Starke, FL (story for another day) and asked the front desk clerk about her favorite restaurant in town. Without hesitation she recommended Downtown Grill. Glad she did. It's not a chain - we like that. The food was...More

I know the new owner's Ricky & Chrissy Thompson - They have great food and great staff. When your in small town like Starke it's great place to stop in and have a nice meal and a drink.

Starke needed a restaurant like this. It is located near the railroad tracks downtown. The place is nice for lunch and dinner. I love their chicken salad sandwich and they have good hamburgers and fries.

We stopped for dinner on Saturday night on a whim, never having been there before. We were greeted promptly and seated in the dining room, which is separated from the bar area. Very nice atmosphere. The Reuben sandwich and the chicken salad croissant were awesome!...More

Stopped by on the road to an event. Good food. They have a nice dining area and an even better bar area. Stark is not a fancy town so big city folks should go in and have a beer.

Shotgun Shrimp, a house specialty, quite good. My wife's tilapia was not. There are better choices in town.

I ordered the black and blue burger. It was a Bubba burger. Gross. I'd rather have a REAL burger from Sonny's. At least the bun was grilled and there was a lot of blue cheese. The mixed drink was ok.
