Just got back from dinner with my wife, 3 year old son and mother-in-law. While the food was quite good, the service was terrible. It took over an hour for us to get our meals, and when we did, one of the orders was wrong. The server kept telling us it would be up in a minute, only to find... More

There for brunch. Good food but why in an almost empty restaurant do they seat you right next to a table that is closely clustered with two other families? Can never figure that out. Convenience of the server? Love kids but their constant chatter prevented my husband and I from having a conversation. Tables were so close it was as... More

We had a great dinner and our waitress Carol did a nice job. We started our evening with a drink at the bar and we certainly didn't feel welcome and the drinks weren't great at all. Yes, the bar was busy but it was a typical Friday night crowd so it's to be expected. My experience at this bar in... More

Very difficult to find in the dark. Not very well lit, as it's just another store front in a strip mall. I wasn't the only person to miss it & have to call for help finding it. Food was tasty, just not a lot of it. They were accommodating for my wheat allergy. :) Their house dressing was delicious -... More

I visited on a Thursday Night Happy hour starting at 4Pm and drinks for only $1.00 to start. you need to get there early as the popularity with these low prices fills up the bar fast with locals who know a bargain. I tried four of the bar appetizers and found them all excellent . Service was slow but due... More

Lunch with people I volunteer for was delicious. Everyone was very pleased. The portions were nice. I had the mushroom pizza and salad. The place was packed but the service didn't skip a beat. I was most impressed.

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
