My daughter and I dined at this spot last night. We are on the way to her University in Oklahima. We had been on the road for 13.5 hours when we arrived. There was a 20 minute wait but the friendly staff offered us a seat and a much welcomed cold beer in the lounge. The place is a true... More

Went to this establishment for the first time in years. We were with a group of friends, so about 8 of us. The service was good. The food was excellent. Large portions and the steaks were cooked and seasoned to perfection. In our case many of us took portions of our meals home for another snack. Seating was a bit... More

The quality has become better and consistent over the last few years. The steak was good and cooked spot on. The biggest draw, the gravy, which is outstanding.

This is the best steak in town! Don't miss out on the fries with gravy, or you'll regret it. The service is always excellent, and the food is on the table fast.

Really good food, I swear they use a cast iron skillet for all their cooking, it has that wonderful taste in every bite! Steaks, Catfish, veggies, all totally delicious. Their gravy pulls everything together and boy, is it every good. Attentive service, 1940's decor, the food is so worth going there.

Please do not go to the North Star Steak House. It is way too good to become popular. Its dark, its loud, the food is too good, the drinks are too strong, and if the secret gets out, it may be ruined.

Very quiet environment. Gone three times this year and each visit is great! I always get the Ribye which is my favorite. Fries and gravy go great with the steak. Always make a reservation. As stated go on your birthday. You get around $15.00 off your steak. We have had Whitney serve us every time. She's great!! Definitely worth trying.

I've been coming to the North Star for 30 years, and it continues to serve tasty, well-cooked steak. The service was excellent and attentive, and those darn fries and gravy are still delicious. I hope to eat here for another 30 years!

The motel front desk person recommended North Star, and it's good we had the recommendation because we would have driven past the building otherwise. It's off Route 24 and looks like a nondescript roadhouse from the outside. The waitress was very friendly, efficient, and accommodating. The salad and bread (come with every entree) were nothing special, but the steak was... More

Avoid the chain places and go to this hidden gem. Step back in time at this throwback steakhouse. Your taste buds will thank you.
