Cowboy Star opened in May of 2008 and continues to offer a welcomed retreat to both a devoted group of regulars as well as excited first-timers. Located in the up-and-coming East Village neighborhood of San Diego, Cowboy Star Restaurant and Butcher Shop serves up a unique dining experience by combining contemporary American cuisine with a western flare. Winner of the 2008 Orchid Award for Interior Design, the restaurant features exposed beam ceilings, cowboy accents, and classic landscape photography creating a welcoming atmosphere where locals gravitate.
A stunning display kitchen is the focal point of Cowboy Star, offering an insiders view of the action. The bar at Cowboy Star offers a stylish and cozy environment complete with large leather booths, a fireplace and hand-crafted cocktails.
