This establishment is a great looking corner bar/restaurant. But the food/burgers were absolutely greasy, over cooked and over priced. The bar crowd was loud drunk cursing and kept going outside to smoke weed. You cannot separate yourself from the bar and my friends from out...More

White Star is a local dive with a very limited menu. The burger is excellent and fries are very good too. The spaghetti squash salad is an okay bar food alternative. Beer options are good. Service is efficient.
