  • The Bright Star has lots of great dishes to chose from with their fusion of southern cuisine and greek fare. Try their broiled seafood platter to taste a little of everything.
  • The fried green tomatoes are GOOD. Loved the snapper almondine! Everything was perfect!
  • The Texas Special (Greek snapper, lobster & crab au gratin, beef tenderloin) is literally a perfect meal. Pair it with the garlic cheese dressing for the salad and hand-cut fries as your potato.
  • Save room fir dessert. Peanut Butter Pie is fantastic. .pj
  • Really neat place with great food! The lunch prices are very reasonable! I got the snapper almondine and loved it!
  • This star burned out a long time ago. Don't believe the hyped reviews. The people that like this place think Wal-Mart is a good place to buy groceries and Pizza Hut is the best pizza. Gag!
  • I'm just wondering how this 100 year old restaurant stays open because the food was not good with the exception of the blue cheese salad. The food was bland. Do not have the spinach casserole.
  • The Greek steak is fantastic
  • Try the Greek Snapper, it's delicious!
  • Love the Greek style chicken, and the cauliflower.
  • Italian snapper rocks.
  • Crab claws
  • The atmosphere and history are awesome the crab cakes divine! Definitely a tradition for us.
  • My last meal would be the Lobster & Crabmeat Au Gratin with french fries and a slice of lemon icebox pie. Literally, my favorite meal on Earth.
  • Hubby had rib eye I had stiffed baked shrimp. Both were put of this world. The steaks are aged with fantastic flavor. Service was great. Enjoyed very much.
  • The peanut butter pie!!
  • Excellent !!
  • Not good. Long time patron but this trip was not worth it. Steak was dry and bland. Best part of meal was the Greek salad. Somebody doesn't have passion in the kitchen anymore.
  • Greek Snapper is wonderful! Pineapple Cheese Pie is the best!
  • Snapper throats are great.
