I've been to this place (Stars Sports Bar and Grill) in Katy, near 99 about five times in two months. I've chatted up bartenders, managers, assistant managers and the owner. So, I like these people, but, I won't be going back and I feel like I should let people know why. For the record, I've not been kicked out, no arguments or drama with staff or owner, and I don't have an ax to grind.
Have you ever had a friend that thinks they are awesome at something but they aren't? Like listening to a friend who has a dream of being a professional singer, but they suck at singing. I don't want to be the dream crusher that tells them, hey, you suck.
That is how I feel about Stars. I really don't think that the owner of this place has any idea how poorly run and how bad things there really are. He has on at least one occasion asked me to go online and rate the place. I've avoided the topic until three nights ago when I promised staff that I would. So, here it is, and now I am the dream crusher.
So, listen up man, because this may not look like it, but it is a love letter of truth that is about to come at you.
Your place is in trouble. Aside from the fact that you are kind of out of the way to get to; your food is terrible. It is simple food too so it should be easy to make. Your bartenders aren't great. They are slow, and by slow I mean, like slow in service. Great people, just not great bartenders. They are treating the place like it is a hangout for friends.
I understand that you were supposed to open another restaurant or maybe you already have or something, but please don't. The market in Katy for sucky restaurants is already cornered.
Look man, focus on some of the basics. Product knowledge, service with a smile, food safety, quality etc.
or stick to construction.
By the way, the place feels hostile when you first go in there. Like, they don't want anyone in there that they don't already know.
Peace and good luck...

Got talked in to going to this place last weekend. I honestly think that the positive reviews on here must be from the owner because this place sucks. Went out for beer and wings came home and six hours later was puking and on the toilet. Got me and my friend sick as a dog.
On top of that, their beer sucks..

I love a good dive bar, the operative word being ""good.""
Stars Sports Bar & Grill qualifies as a dive, but not a good one and as a ""dive"" it only marginally qualifies since its interior and patio are actually pretty nice.
The bar itself is in a terrible location, the interior is clean, spacious and when you first walk in, gives you the false impression that your experience will be a one of cold beer and good food.
Poor beer selections and very bad food combined with top heavy, vacuous, brothel worthy, barmaids (ok, ok, admittedly this might not be a negative... ) and a dim witted ""Full Tard"" manager kill the buzz of hope one first gets by walking in the door.
My girlfriend and I went to Stars on a Friday to take in a game and eat some food. The place was sparsely populated... at most forty people in total.
We ordered fried mushrooms as an appetizer, nachos, and a well done cheese burger as entrees. All simple dishes to prepare, and something that any self respecting sports bar should be able to crank out on a Friday evening like a casual exhale.
The fried mushrooms arrived first. Immediately we noticed that they looked more like hush puppies than mushrooms. They were very heavily battered, tiny button mushrooms which looked and tasted like round balls of overly salted armpit lint. By weight, the batter easily outweighed the mushroom by two to one.
The burger was ordered well done (the only way to eat a burger), and came out half cooked (one half of the meat was cooked and the other half was a bright pink.)
and overly greasy (lets face it, a good bar burger should be a LITTLE greasy). The accompanying french fries were limp and undone.
The nachos were a concoction of greasy imitation cheese and a cheap, poorly prepared, overly greasy nacho meat lumped on top of tortilla chips.
The manager on duty was a shorter, less fortunate looking, much dimmer version of Stephen Baldwin. His attention to detail, product knowledge, customer service skills were lacking. So, not only was the food a complete disaster, but the service was poor as well.
I feel bad for the owner of this establishment. They are getting killed by the construction on route 99, by a poor location choice, but most of all, by terrible management and execution. The place should of been packed on a Friday.
Avoid this place. Unfortunately, Stars Sports Bar & Grill is just not worth your time.
MY FRIENDS WANTED TO GO OUT AND DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN MOS OR BAKER ST. SO WE WENT TO STARS ABOUT 4 MONTHS AGO. WE CANNOT STOP. THEY HAVE A BEVO BURGER BEST BURGER IN TOWN. THE EGGROLLS ARE GREAT TOO! THE SERVICE IS ALWAYS GOOD EVEN WHEN IT GETS REAL BUSY. NOW EVERY FRIDAY THEY HAVE A DJ AND HE IS GREAT. YOU TELL HIM WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR AND DJ JELLO PLAYS YOUR SONG IN THE NEXT FEW SONGS HE PLAYS. THEY HAVE A CALANDER WITH ALL THEIR SPECIALS FOR EACH NIGHT. STARS HAS UP TO DATE GOLDEN TEE AND NICE POOL TABLS. SHUFFLE BOARD AND BOWLING GAMES AS WELL WE WILL BE CUSTOMERS FOR A LONG LONG TIME. FREE UFC FIGHTS EVERY MONTH . I HAVE MET ALOT OF COOL PEOPLE THERE. I THINK THEY HAVE THE MOST FLAT SCREENS THAT ARE ACTUALLY NEWER SO THERE REALLY ISNT A BAD SEAT IN THE HOUSE. BETHANY MEGAN AND LIZ ARE ALL SO COOL AND YET SO HOT TOO!!!I THINK THAT THAT IS WHAT AN IDEA SPORTS BAR SHOULD BE LIKE. NBA AND COLLEGE HOOPS ALL THE NFL AND MLB GAMES AND THEY ALWAYS HAVE REALLY GOOD DRINK AND FOOD SPECIALS.WELL , I COULD GO ON AND ON BUT TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT AND CHECK IT OUT. IT'S ALOT OF FUN AND A GREAT PLACE TO MEET COOL PEOPLE THAT TREAT YOU LIKE A FRIEND. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE IM BIG BRAN AND A NEVER SAY NO TO A FREE SHOT!!!

This is a nice (clean) place to kick back and watch a football or baseball game over a beer. I'll echo the comment below - tends to be over-crowded with UFC fans in their Affliction t-shirts...:)
However, I've never failed to hook up with a hot girl here, at least for conversation, sometimes more. ON a related note - I've never seen so many ""well-endowed"" women in one bar, staff or customer. Is it something in the water in Katy??
Anyway, if you like your girls curvy, go here :)

I have been coming to Stars since the day the opened. I was at the 2nd year anniversary party this past weekend and the place was rockin'. Tony always has fun things planned to entertain us. Also, I always like to eat there because the food is GOOD! The food menu is very impressive for a sports bar. Being female I love that Stars offers a variety of salads and healthy foods as well as stuff for the guys like wings and hamburgers etc. There is something for everyone! Oh, one more important thing for us females coming to Stars, the ladies bathroom is always spotless and well maintained. YEAH! Bottomline, WE always have a GOOD time at Stars! :)

I frequent stars almost weekly. You can't beat the unbelievable service & food (I recommend the BLT)! The entire staff knows you by name and they treat you like a good friend or family member. They frequently have events outside the bar that you can participate in as well. By far the best bar in the area!!!

This is the best sports bar in Katy hands down. Its nice to go to a sports bar that both women and men can both enjoy. Star's has so many wonderful events on different nights. It's a local place where you can enjoy great food, great staff, and some great fun.

Lots of flat screen TV's - catch all your favorite games. Great food and drink specials, pool, darts - even a poker night. The staff is friendly and the owner is usually there to make sure everything is running smoothly. The bar is like a mile long plus lots of tables; lots of regulars make it a friendly place to kick back. Did I mention great food and lot's of TV's? Check it out - you'll be back.

This bar is on the top of my list of places to go. First and foremost, the people who work there and the patrons of Stars make this a unique establishment. It has become my Cheers. Where everybody knows your name and they are always glad you came. These lines ring true at Stars Sports Bar. Secondly, the food is a big draw for me. The burger is one of the best in town because of its buttery bread, fresh ingredients, and overall flavor. Many other items from the Menu are very good such as the Texas Cheese Steak or Chicken Wrap. I could go on and on about menu items because I have never been disappointed by Stars food. There are great drink specials and I always have a blast there. I recommend Stars to anyone looking for good food, good drinks, and good times.
