I have dined at North Star for years now and have only had a bad meal there once. I mentioned the issue at the time of service and had my entire meal and drinks comped plus got a gift certificate for a free drink the next time I came in. Needless to say I have been back time and time... More

Sitting at the bar is great when you want to catch a game. 3 bartenders were terrific at service for food and drinks. They made a great team. Menu has nice variety from ordering sandwiches, burgers, single pizzas, soups,salads or dinners. We ordered the bacon bleu burger and the bourbon salmon. Both yummy. The bourbon salmon is one of their... More

I ordered some kind of steak (what a great reviewer I am!), and it was quite good. I found the beer selection great. Everyone at our table of 6 liked their meals. The place is a bit pricey, but the atmosphere is in-line with that, as is the food and service. I'd go again.

We went to the North Star Bistro for dinner. We did make reservations online, which I'm glad we did. We got there at 5:45pm and by the time we left, the place was full and there were people waiting. The service and food was very good. The restaurant did get loud as the night progressed, and it was hard to... More

We loved our carry-out dinner from North Star. The North Star Burger was excellent, as was the Charcuterie (which was more than a meal for one.) The burger came with delicious fries. We enjoyed the leftovers of the two dishes over the next few days. The bartender packaged everything up, through in a few dinner rolls and was very friendly.... More

Sunday was my third visit. It seems like the service is really bad on Sundays. Maybe they can't figure out how to do brunch, but it seems like the majority of the problems were in the service, not the kitchen. We had a reservation for 1 pm and the hostess seemed to have a hard time seating us. She went... More

I have been here for business dinners several times. Great food! Love their beef short ribs, crab cakes and whitefish. Service is wonderful. Highly recommend.

One can not help but like this place for a number of reasons: great, exciting menu, wonderful service and excellent tasting food. Specials here are definitely Special. This is a reasonably priced place. You can not go wrong whatever you order.

Variety of menu choices with some upscale twists. The Wild Mushroom Soup I had was absolutely delicious and the Apple-Walnut Salad with warm dressing was delicious according to the friend who was dining with me. Need to go back for some of their dinner menu items.

If you want a GREAT meal, casual from a fabulous Salmon salad (I ask for it blackened and it's yummy ) to the AU pauve (sp?) burger, fish fry, truffle fries dessert...everything is fabulous. In addition the staff is superb (especially Carol) just a great place to go! We have literally changed from many good places because it is close,... More
