About Blue Star

A Landmark Restaurant Since 1947

The Blue Star restaurant in Welland is more than just a place to grab a bite to eat, it's a local institution that has been serving up delicious food since 1947. The restaurant's loyal customers, who have been coming back for decades, have made it clear that the Blue Star is more than just a restaurant - it's a part of the community.

Despite its long history, the Blue Star hasn't rested on its laurels. The restaurant's owners, John and Renée Plentai, and brother-in-law Brian Mareau, are committed to making sure that the Blue Star remains a beloved spot for generations to come. They have added new items to the menu, including low-carb options, and are always updating the restaurant's decor to keep it fresh.

One thing that has remained constant is the Blue Star's commitment to serving up delicious food. The restaurant's signature broasted chicken is still a customer favorite, and the pierogies and cabbage rolls are not to be missed. The menu also includes salads, soups, steaks, hamburgers, and homemade pies baked daily.

The Blue Star has attracted some famous guests over the years, including former Prime Ministers Pierre Trudeau and Stephen Harper. But it's the regulars who keep coming back year after year that are the heart and soul of the restaurant. The staff, led by owner John, make everyone feel like family, and the friendly atmosphere is a big part of what makes the Blue Star so special.

With a new menu and updated decor, the Blue Star is ready to serve up delicious food for generations to come. As John says, "We've tried to stay true to the original recipe," and that commitment to quality is what keeps customers coming back year after year.
