Yes, it's hard to find. Yes, it looks a little odd from the street. But, if you're up for something a little different then this just might be for you. North Star is located in a period building that has an interesting past. Gin mill, speakeasy, house of questionable repute...any of those might fit, and the fact that there are... More

Very dark when you get into the place, but after 5 minutes all will be OK. The service is really good. Very nice waiters can help you on the best choice. But, the star, of course is the steaks. Tender and tasteful do not matter your choice. The sides are very well cooked and tasteful as well! When you go... More

Service and food were phenomenal! I took my extended family out for dinner and all ten of us had a great meal. Even though we did not have a reservation we were seated within 30 minutes on a Friday night. The fires and hash browns are served family style and have that fresh cut taste. A real compliment to a... More

One could say this is an old restaurant that needs some updating. I would tell them to go elsewhere. We have had dinner here several times. The food is great, the service is great, and the environment is great. They always accommodate our large group and there is rarely a delay. I would suggest to the owners that they add... More

We went to dinner here and the service was good and the food was all prepared as we ordered it. The steak was awesome and we had enough for take home it was such a big portion. All of the side items were what we expected them to be.

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.
