If not a local no need to stop in this restaurant. Walked in and was advised by the waiter to seat ourselves. Found a table and waited for service, finally a waitress came over and gave us menus and took our drink order which was two ice teas. Waited for over 10 minutes and never received the drinks or any... More

This was right near our motel so we were able to walk to the Northstar. This was big plus when you are on a vacation and have traveled many miles and not familiar with the town you are visiting. They had a special each night for the dinner hour, the servings were very large and the food was delicious. The... More

Okay. Good pancakes. Bacon taste like more like a maple than regular bacon. Pancakes were just pancakes. Home fries were great though.

There is one staff for 6 tables and 10 sitting at the bar. Poor maintenance at best. And no all natural maple syrup.

We were in the area looking for a place for lunch: not many choices in March, but saw this place and decided to give it a try. The place was pretty empty, on a slow Sunday, early afternoon. Our waiter was friendly, and the service was good. The food was rather average though. We tried two breakfast entrées and a... More

Here it was Sunday morning after church in Theresa, looking for a place for breakfast. We could hit the diner in Philly like we usually do, or drive all the way to Watertown. How about trying something near? Okay….but as we drove up to the diner on 37 in Theresa….packed parking lot. Wife has inspiration….something must be open in Alex... More

The wife and I had the sausage gravy and biscuits w/eggs. Quick service and convenient. We were hesitant due to the seasonal timing but we're pleasantly surprised. Thank you we will be back.

The place was packed (a good sign) when we went, food looked good on other diner's tables.... we sat at the counter, waitress was prompt in initial greeting and taking order but then we waited 40 minutes with no coffee refill and staff far off not noticing our occasional wave. When the guests sitting next to us left without food... More

This place is in my hometown and all of the locals go there for good home cooking and basic food. If you are looking for fine dinning, this is not the place. If you are looking for a good, nourishing meal, you have found it. Open all year round for breakfast and lunch. Excellent.
