Do yourself a HUGE favor and enjoy the pimento cheese dip appetizer. The food is so fresh, flavorful and delicious. My only gripe is that there isn't a location closer to where I live. I took my manager here who is a foodie from Chicago...he absolutely loved it as well and it is now a requirement every visit. Simply the... More

We had the best experience at Northstar! We had never been there before and so we were a little lost at ordering, but the customer service we got was outstanding!

I've been to all of their locations. I highly recommend this restaurant to those who have never gone. No matter the time of day or the menu they are offering, I am never disappointed.

Brunch at North Star is always a treat! One of my favorite things to do. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is warm and sunny and friendly, and the service is always fast. Some may think it's a bit pricy, but it's totally worth the price :)

Great place to go if you're looking for organic/ healthy food with an emphasis on locally grown & raised food sources. Vegan & no gluten options are numerous.

Had a lovely dinner. Had the burgers with sweet potato fries. Absolutely delicious. Would have liked the evening more if the noise, music plus overall cacophony, wasn't so loud. Overall, would go back but maybe use the outdoor seating when weather permits...

I have friends that rave about Northstar. I've tried it 3 times now. It seems very pricey for average options.

Thank Wendy-S2J
