Restaurant Review

The White Star Bar, located a few blocks from Hamilton Park, is a friendly Cheers like bar serving excellent burger, sandwiches, wings, and brunch made with quality ingredients. It's an excellent choice for meeting up with friends for drinks and a bite to eat, or for a date night.

The well-executed menu is prepared with high quality ingredients. They use prime meat from Pat LaFrieda, bread from Balthazar Bakery, and fresh locally sourced vegetables 

The menu features an extensive selection of burgers, wings, sandwiches, and weekend Brunch options.

The ambiance is casual, rustic hip, and Cheers-like friendly. There are dimly lit candles atop booths with long bench seats, and tables. There is a spacious bar with TVs. The music is at a good level, not too loud that you can't hold a conversation. 

The White Star Bar is open daily for lunch & dinner and for weekend brunch on Saturday and Sunday.
