Stars Restaurant Shines at Hingham Harbor

Article and photo by Eric H.

Every community should have a restaurant like Star's on Hingham Harbor in Hingham, MA, located about 20 miles south of Boston.

Friendly, cozy, and reasonably priced, this dining spot with views of Hingham Harbor serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a creative streak. Always going the extra mile, the Shepherd's Pie, as an example, isn't just ground beef, mashed potatoes and corn: there's also a herb tomato demi glaze and Parmesan crust. The baked mac and cheese features a four-cheese sauce and bread crumbs. The cod is potato encrusted with grilled seasonal vegetables and a roasted tomato-herb vinaigrette.

For those who love food without a twist, Star's comes through quite including favorite American dishes like burgers, a great clam chowder, chicken pot pie, lobster rolls, grilled salmon, and a delicious grilled tenderloin medallions with asparagus, onions and real mashed potatoes.

Stars presents huge portions, but if you have room for dessert, there's the amazing cookie-baked brownies served with vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, caramel sauce and whipped cream.

The atmosphere is just fine with red walls, blue wood and multi-colored lights around the dining room and bar areas (with sports playing on the televisions) -- and with some views of Hingham Harbor. The restaurant appears to appeal to all walks of life, as evidenced by the BMWS and tiny Kia sedans out front and the investment banker and shaggy people-type customers inside.

Stars really shines with its contemporary-to-traditional diner food, and we can hardly wait to return for a hearty breakfast!
