We stopped at the Starlite diner for lunch. Only 2 servers. Under new management. Prognosis for staying in business not good. Menu items not made... i.e. their classic seafood chowder. Couldn't make a smaller portion on an entree, even though we said they could charge us full price. Settled for a cheeseburger, chili.. which we figure will be Dinty Moore,... More

This place takes you back to the good old days of Rock and Roll. Personal size Jukeboxes at every table, song for a quarter. Decor is very authentic. Food is about the same as any burger joint. It's a nostalgia thing to go there.

Loved the food and service. For us travellers this was the old fashioned diner that you don't see too often. Great food, great service and great price.

Tried this place this summer and found it to be mediocre. We thought the prices were on the high side for the quality served and other similar restaurants in the area. Cute old diner décor.

We had an opportunity to visit your diner while vacationing on the island. We loved the vintage feel of the diner but more importantly the food was terrific. Thank you to our server Darlene for her hospitality.
