Nice Atmosphere

We went for a Sunday lunch without a reservation and did not have any trouble getting a table. The food was fresh and was presented nicely. Service was attentive.

North Star's menu never disappoints, and the food is superb. You can have a Friday fish fry or a burger or a pizza, but you can also have a nice assortment from their dinner menu. Salads, bread are very tasty. Main courses are always elegantly prepared yet not snooty. Whenever we take out of town family there, they always want... More

Visiting from out of town for a large family gathering, I wanted to have a more intimate dinner with my immediate family. So glad Trip Advisor helped me find North Star American Bistro. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. My sister and I split the short ribs, which were delicious, and our server, Carol, had them plated... More

This is based on a lunch visit in summer. The location and parking are convenient and there is limited outdoor seating. Bar available for waiting but this is not a sports atmosphere. There are a lot of choices on the menu although the red meat eaters may be disappointed. Good salads and sandwiches for lunch. Service was very good and... More

The restaurant itself is nice. Good food - the blackened tuna was well executed and the risotto was very good. Service was ok but not great. What hurts this place is the location. It sits in a strip soon-to-be power center or so it seems. So it is a space that could be a quick service place or retail store.... More

Had lunch here with a colleague from work. We decided to sit at the bar, the service was outstanding. We ordered a Cesar salad and a steak sandwich, both dishes were prepared to perfection. Overall good meal, the atmosphere could be improved, will be back.

Since North Star is in our neighborhood, it's a "go to" place when you want a variety of choices. They have personal pizzas, salads, sandwiches, full entrees like steaks/pastas/chops. I've never had anything that was just ordinary here. Some things like the blue cheese burger are dependably consistent. I've had some brilliant dishes here: a pasta with early spring peas... More

Lunch with friends was a huge success. I had the 2 crab cake salad which was delicious. It came with greens, capers, onions, cherry tomatoes, avocado, blue cheese and nuts. In addition the bread was great as well, although I would have enjoyed a second piece which was what you usually get and I didn't think to ask for more.... More
