Good Food with a retro flair.

We were greeted well and our server was great. Food was very good and the retro feel was great. This place is out of the way but worth the find.

This little out of the way place does not look as nice as the steaks are good. Service was adequate. They don't waste a lot of time on you but, they are very busy. I ordered a filet mignon and my husband ordered a rib eye. They were excellent. Salads and rolls were okay - nothing special. It was recommended... More

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
