We are sad to announce Starlight Diner will be closing Monday July 4th at 3:00 PM for the last time.
Our Landlord served us with notice to vacate and has the space leased to a non-restaurant tenant. The landlord has been one of our best supporters but had no choice at this time and we appreciate all they have done. Once we got behind we have not been able to reduce the amount owed at the lower sales.
As many of you experienced we are very busy on Saturday & Sunday's but cannot survive on 1 to 2 strong days a week during non-season. We staffed for success, prepped for success and maintained the diner for success even during non-season; unfortunately that was more than the revenue generated.
Thanks to our loyal staff and we appreciate the support from all of our customers, especially those that came on a regular basis during non-season, it was just not enough. Hope to see you at the locally owned mom and pop restaurants, please support them.
Starlight Diner opened March 3rd 2014 and has become a destination restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner since opening. As you approach the 50’s – 60’s diner, with its retro interior, you are greeted by Elvis holding his guitar, striking his signature pose. As you enter the diner Marilyn Monroe greets you in the famous iconic pose, laughing as her white skirt is blown up by the blast from a subway vent, is shot during the filming of The Seven Year Itch. Once inside, the classic black-and-white checkered floor with seating in aqua, white and chrome are sure to bring back memories. Or how about the old Coke machine and the bubbling Wurlitzer Juke Box? And did we mention the drive-in movie screen showing classic old movies and 50’s – 60’s TV shows? As you sit and listen to all the 50’s 60’s tunes, you’ll notice the mural-classic old cars and classic old stars! Dine outdoors on the patio and enjoy the glorious SW Florida Weather! You can even bring Fido- Stevi’s patio is dog friendly for all Stevi’s well-mannered friends.
Enjoy a great meal with friends and family at Starlight Diner anytime.
