Stopped here for lunch on the way from Idaho back to Seattle. This bar is in downtown Ellensburg, away from the highway, but Wes worth getting away from all the typical fast food places they are putting by the highways now. I had the portobello mushroom with cheese sandwich as I was not in a meat eating mood. Was quite... More

Went here with friends who highly recommended the Burgers. We were there after 6 PM. Place not overly busy. Ordered the burgers 5 total. It took over an hour to get our orders. Drinks were forever getting to the table in that hour. I asked the waitress for bottled water 3 times and she said two of those time that... More

The restaurant has the best atmosphere. Located in the heart of downtown Ellensburg in a historic building. Delicious food and the service is great.

I have always enjoyed the atmosphere and the drinks, but I do not recommend the salads. They are over dressed and I didn't think that was possible ~ but it is! Tried it a second time and same thing. You will have to ask for dressing on the side if you want a salad.

Good food, the shift transition after dinner to late night hipster bar was a bit awkward for staff. All in all, nice experience.

Starlight Lounge is a wonderful place. First of all, it has a sophisticated setting, befitting any hip big city. Real classic style paintings on the wall, leather bound booth, waiters dressed professionally. Service is prompt and attentive. Food is artfully served, and tasty. The key to this place are their custom margaritas. Not only these drinks are unique, there is... More

Went here because of a recommendation. Was not impressed. Two entry doors and you just stand there until someone notices you and then are told to find a table. Food was OK, not nothing to write about. At the end of the meal, the waitress walked over (for the first time!) and asked "Do you want to pay now?" Rates... More

Ellensburg is growing on the restaurant scene, oh, yes it is. Starlight has been around for awhile and the reason is it's consistent with quality of food, beverage and service. You get to slip into a cozy booth in a restaurant abuzz with diners and enjoy happy hour, lunch or dinner. I am ready for them to change up their... More

Cozy place to stop for a drink and lunch. Food is OK. Just the service is not constant as the first time we had an amazing time and great service, then we decide to come back and the service was poor. Our drinks arrive after our meal, they make a mistake on our orders, and was just 2 more tables... More

The two appetizers we had were both very good. The chicken satay, in particular, was a standout. The bulk of our consumption, however, was the excellent cocktails, We had mojitos and a pisco sour. All were excellent. Can't speak to the dinners, but snacks and drinks very good indeed.
