Northstar Pub is a real gem in the Fallcreek neighborhood of Ithaca. It is casual and reasonably priced. The food is excellent. The crab cakes are the best (no fillers). Lots of beer and wine choices. Love to sit out on the terrace in the summertime. The servers are all friendly & terrific and know a great deal about wine pairings and different beers. I drive 10 miles in to town to eat here about once a month.. I have never been disappointed!

We go and eat at the bar. Everyone is cool, not fussy and they give friendly competent service. The food is very nice. Salmon Ceasar with garlic bread was great. Salmon cooked perfect and the dressing was very good, not full of mayo that does not belong. The flatbreads are great. The wine list is perfect for a bar meal and affordable. We liked the shrimp roll (like a lobster roll) with cajun spice. It was simple and very tasty. It is gone from the menu.
Just a darn good place to go.

If you are in Ithaca, find Tioga Street and head over to a really fun place with great foods and lots of microbrews on tap. Fun for couples, groups of friends or families. Local foods are featured and there's something for every diet on the menu. The Northstar is small but worth the wait.

This place is amazing, the food is great and most ingredients are local. Just get there early because the place fills up quickly!

I had been wanted to try this place because of their strong emphasis on using local ingredients and was not disappointed. My meal was great and the coffee was amazing!
