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

This hidden gem was a very pleasant surprise. The owner/Chef Gustavo was not only personable and a fine gentleman he is a world class chef. The server staff in particular Amy not only made you feel at home and welcome, but she knew every entree on the menu and her recommendations were spot-on. We ate the Venezuelan breakfast and it...

The Sea Star Cafe is a casual, tidy little venue that is perfect for lunch. It is just off State Route 70 just east of Lakewood Ranch Blvd. It is easy to find. The only problem is parking: get there early as there is not much. They do breakfast and lunch, but breakfast food predominates. I have been there a... More
