We had breakfast here a few times. We found the pancakes to our liiking, and the service friendly and alert. If local color is your taste, there's plenty of that here too. Wi-fi available.

From the outside, we had some questions about what it would be like but found we did not have to worry. The food was very good and at a fair price. The restaurant was clean and neat. The staff was friendly and courteous. We were treated as if we had been there many times.

The North Star is no fine dining establishment, but if you're looking for a simple, tasty, filling meal this will definitely fit the bill. The menu offers a reasonable range of choices, service is attentive and the dishes come out fresh and well-prepared. Their fries are delicious. Worth noting that you can get a delicious breakfast here from 6 am.

As the title implies, the service was outstanding. The food was also very good. Portions were huge and very tasty. We had dinner and then had a take-out breakfast and on both occasions the food was excellent value for the money.

We ate breakfast twice here during our vacation. It's a popular place, many more cars & people than at other breakfast places in town. Our first experience was excellent. Friendly waitress, good choices on the "specials" board, fine food. The second experience was a disaster. The "specials" choices were identical to the previous day. Promised coffee, and then waited 15... More

We waited over an hour to get served our breakfast. When we got it, the food was very good. We gave them another try later during our vacation and we left after no server showed up for 20 minutes. I won't go back.

They also serve lunch and dinner but we only ate breakfast as it was conveniently near our motel (Captns Inn & Suites). Pretty basic diner. Food was OK.

This was the best dinner we had while in A Bay on vacation. Everything homemade and delicious. The staff was very friendly, and accommodating. We had our 1 yr old that was miserable, crying, etc and only wanted the oyster crackers they served with our soup. So the waitress gave us 4 packages just for her. The actual owner came... More
