The arrogant general manager lost our business tonite. We have been loyal patrons of over 50 years. But I don't believe they care. The whole evening was surprising and shockingly cavalier towards us-paying customers. Won't be paying there any more.

It is a local favorite and we have eaten there for years but management, or lack of management is ruining it. You can call ahead to reserve a time but they do not honor it. Upon entering the establishment, the manager/hostess was on the phone the entire time and did not acknowledge or greet us. The party we were meeting... More

Went on a recommendation from a Topeka local, and I'm telling you, don't judge a book by it's cover. Was a little hesitant pulling into the parking lot, and even entering the place, but the service was very friendly. I went early on a Wednesday night, so wasn't very crowded but I could see on a prime going out night,... More

This is an old local steakhouse with a colorful history...they cut their own steaks-the best ribeye and steak tips around. Their gravy and fries are decadent. If you just want a drink they have a well stocked bar and with your drink you can enjoy the best appetizer tray around. They take reservations. I would encourage that as dining area... More

This was our first time eating at the Northstar, and we didn't call ahead for reservations. While they take walk-ins, do yourself a favor and make a reservation. It may save you some time waiting in the bar for a table to open up. We sat in the bar and ordered a couple drinks. and the bartender asked if we... More

We were in town visiting from Australia and our Topekan friends took us to North Star for a traditional local experience. We were impressed with the food. The atmosphere is also excellent. Certainly worth a visit!

When my wife and I want a special treat we go to the North Star. This has been our special place for over 40 years. No matter what anyone says, this restaurant is still excellent in my book. Great food, great cooks, great wait staff. Treat them with respect and you will get respect. Nothing has ever changed and I... More

While in Topeka, several locals suggested this steakhouse. It was closed on the 4th of July, but we went back with much anticipation on the 5th. The filet meal was $25 and included 2 sides - I chose salad and grilled vegetables - my partner chose salad and FF with gravy (a local favorite). Needless to say, we were sorely... More

My wife and I had eaten twice at North Star with .500 results. The first visit was blah, the second was good. So when we were invited with a group of my co-workers, I took a week to decide whether to accept. Our group of ten arrived on a Friday evening and was seated within ten minutes of the time... More

I have eaten here for almost 30 years-in the past the service was excellent and the food was good. Things have definitely changed! We had a reservation for 5 at 6:30 p.m. by 7:45 p.m. we still had not been seated, yet people who came later than us were enjoying their dinners. Ignored by the host and lied to by... More
