Home Cooking! – Almost everything is homemade - love that! From their whole roasted turkey breasts to homemade dressings! yum! Buffalo burgers are awesome... ! We eat there every week and think everyone should give it a try for some truly good stuff.
No pancakes??!! – The service is usually mediocre at best since they never have enough waitstaff and the food although good isn't anything that special. What's most upsetting is in the blurb about this restaurant it says it has pancakes. On the weekends it does not. Why the heck would you serve breakfast without include a staple like pancakes??!!! Very disappointing.
I agree with "Hate to say it..." – Everything that review says is pretty much true. I have been dissapointed for the last time. I first began going to the Blue Star for breakfast, and it was fine. Lunch: Terrible service.
I have worked in the Restaurant and Bar industry for over 10 years. I am very forgiving and understanding when it comes to service standards. I know the job is difficult at times. This being said, I am not pointing the fingers any particular member of the wait staff. The problem starts at the top.-Owners and Managers.
1- Owners have become complacent, because there is no direct competition. The best thing that could happen would be to have someone open another eatery located where Beso Del Sol once existed.
2- Managers are not properly "Running the "show." Why were the other 2 servers allowed to leave around 1:15 when people were continuing to walk through the door for lunch. Our server took waaaaaay too long because he was having to deal with every table in the restaurant(about 10-12, which is a lot for one server to handle). I am guessing management earns a bonus for keeping labor costs down. Keeping labor costs down??? At the expense of me, my time, and the other patrons dining at the Blue Star???- NEVER AGAIN!!!
best breakfast restaurant – After trying lots of places, this place has the BEST biscuits and gravy in ALL of Seattle. And Barbara is the best waitress ever. The service is always fast and friendly, (except when you're being seated). But the dinner menu is nothing to get excited about.
Good Solid Meal – I had the Brazilian Omelette - it was very good. The hashbrowns are good with hot sauce, I like them a bit more crunchy. Call ahead for parties larger than 2 - we waited only about 10 minutes. Busy! But good solid meal for only 10 bucks!
Great place!! – Reading some of the reviews, I'm surprised. So Blue Star doesn't have Seattle's most excellent service, but I really feel like you get your money's worth. They have a huge menu and I've always really enjoyed the food. The beer selections are also fantastic. Throw in comfortable seating and a quieter atmosphere and you're set! My kickball team has been several times before and after our games and they're always very accomodating to our big group and get us taken care of right away. I think it's a great place and worth a visit!!
Hate To Say It........... – I have long been a customer of the Blue Star, and it has slowly deteriorated in it's service. The food quality is still there, but the service staff is just terrible and I am sad that I finally have thrown in the towel and will not return. The last several times I have gone there I have been hoping for a better experience, unfortunatley each time has proved to be worse than the time before. I think the managers should seriously consider customer service training for their staff...they have no clue how to treat the people that come in and support this restaurant.
atrocious – Words cannot describe how bad the service was when my family dined at Blue Star on a slow early evening. The waiter seemed sedated. He knew nothing about beers either- after learning they were out of the beer I had ordered, I asked him what other ales they served. He informed me that "All of the beers are ales", which was not true. The restaurant was out of most of their "specials", although it was 5pm, and we were not informed of this until well after we placed our order. Whole orders were forgotten, and by the time some of the party got their dinners, the other half had finished. The worst part was that the waiter was clearly not fit to be serving the public. If I hadn't been with extended family, I would have insisted that we not stay past the first drink order. Truly- McDonald's would have been a more enjoyable experience, and would have been a heck of a lot faster.
User review by cityeater1 – Had a great brunch at Blue Star, our order was delivered surprisingly quick, the food was fresh and tasty, it was a great find, we stubbled across it on an early Sunday afternoon and hope to stumble from the bar one night from sampling their long list of microbrew. Check out the Blue Star if you're looking for really good American food and a and lovely late breakfast!
This laid-back Wallingford cafe has lazy brunch written all over it. – In Short
Breakfasts are the specialty, with more than 20 omelettes gracing the menu alongside pancakes, waffles and egg dishes. Or diners can opt for breakfast items like Seattle eggs: a simple mix of salmon, eggs and hollandaise sauce over English muffins. Midday brings a selection of fried appetizers, burgers and a few basic American adaptations, such as the lamb burger on a sun-dried tomato bun.
