Silver Star Grill has really moved up the food chain. The upgraded menu is awesome. The calamari is perfect and the Kalua pork is very tasty.

We were looking for a place that didn't have a 45 minute wait for only average food. We stumbled upon silver star and was pleasantly surprised that they serve local fish and beef, awesome! When we entered we wondered if we made the right choice (kinda divey) but when the food came we finished everything. I always take home but... More

This place operates in conjunction to the next door bar, they are communicated through a door at the end. The hamburger is one of the best you can eat on the coastside, good quality beef and excellent thin crispy fries.

After having terrible fish-n-chips earlier in the day, I was a bit reluctant to order the same for dinner. Thankfully, my sister said they were a good option here. And she was right. The fish was light and creamy, and the batter salty and peppery. Definitely fresh fish well fried. My wife had the fish tacos. Although the pieces of... More

Hamburgers are wonderful and better than local burgers at twice the price. Check out the fresh fish special - never been dissappointed.

What a great find in Princeton! The Silver Star has very tasty food at a great price; and there's some great drinks/entertainment in the next room. Don't miss this place!

Used to have nice big Hamburgers and great fries, now it is a very small unremarkable burger and awful fries. Pete is missed.

We went in there for some fish and chips and a burger, but they were taking forever to cook it. And then, oddly, I went for a Guinness over at the attached bar, and they also took so long to let it de-foram that the thing was too warm by the time I got it. They were "cash only," so... More
