Our Two Cents
The White Star is that kid in school who everyone got along with. There’s nothing that could rub a person the wrong way about this downtown mainstay. Varied crowds gather throughout the week — you get your hipster kids; the older, cranky fellows; urban jocks smothered in too much cologne screaming at the television during games; the public servant crowd bringing their kids in after Little League for Wednesday Dinner Specials and a whole slew of other regulars.
The owner of this place is a down to earth guy who has been unwavering in his commitment to consistency, quality and providing his patrons with an incredible food and drink value.
Draught beer is always fresh. I have yet to sip a diacetyl tainted pour. Bottle selection is admirable. It’s not d.b.a. or Blind Tiger in here, but for a typical JC corner bar, the place is great.
We’re classifying The White Star as a pub due to the atmosphere and the quality of food served. More than wings and fried baskets of heart attack, this place serves up great meats (burgers, roasts, stews, etc.), hearty salads and fantastic pub classics.
