Come to the Starlite Lounge Restaurant and Wine Bar for exceptional wine and dining in a friendly, casual atmosphere.

We are OPEN Thursdays through Sundays from 4 to 9pm, and beginning in April we will be Open SIX DAYS A WEEK!  It’s true! We’ll be adding Mondays and Wednesdays to the mix.  More days open means more Starlite to love.  Get ready Kernville, here we come!
