We had a very nice dining experience! I had the salmon which was very good and my husband had the strip steak. Also has the eggplant/zucchini appetizer which we both enjoyed. Had a brandy old fashioned that was also good. Our waiter, Joaquin, gave us really excellent service. We were served a complimentary flourless chocolate cake as we were celebrating our anniversary. Look forward to going back soon as other menu items looked good too.

Good selection from main entrees to sandwiches/burgers to a Friday Fish Fry. Only disappointment was that they ran out of the Perch Fishfry. Friendly staff and a nice place.

This is the second time I have visited North Star with a friend In the past few weeks and the food is always delicious. I loved the scallops salad and my friend loved the scallops squash special if the day. My favorite is the salmon salad so that is hard to pass up. Great service and great food!

One of my favorite restaurants!
I had the special, 'Braised Lamb Shank' on Risotto, with a red wine reduction.
It was excellent.

Great variety of food from casual sandwiches and burgers to steak. I absolutely enjoyed my bacon wrapped meatloaf and my husband had any awesome steak. Great wine selections finished with a delicious elegant farmer cherry cobbler. We always have great meals and there is always enough variety to please all. Highly recommend!

We waited at the front door for almost 10 minutes despite several employees walking past us many times. We waiting almost 10 minutes for a waitress to come to the table. Out food arrived in a timely manner yet the chicken was hard, dry and did not taste. For a $100 bill it was mediocre at best.

Our first time at this restaurant. Food was very good and an excellent value. The service was a bit spotty but not bad. The menu variety was very good and the preparation was top notch.

It would be good for them to have a hard liquor list.

We'll be back

Was able to reserve two tables outside for my parents’ wedding anniversary that allowed us to maintain social distance while still enjoying good food and each other’s company. Service was fantastic as was the food. Nice night out during the Covid era!

I had the beet salad with added salmon and it was so very tasty. We also added a side of the rissoto (Chix and mushroom) and it was the best.

We appreciated being able to make a reservation to dine outdoors during the Covid pandemic. The waitress was very pleasant and did not rush us in any way. The food was great both in quantity and quality.

I should have known we were in trouble when we had to wait quite a while for our reserved outdoor table and then were placed not at the nice table right in front that had just been cleaned off, but to the furthest table down the sidewalk. It was only about 24" in diameter and wobbled dangerously. The waitress seemed peeved with us when we complained and it went downhill from there. We waited forever for our salad and then were only halfway through it when they showed up with the entrees saying they could keep them warm if we wanted. As we both had fish, that seemed like a terrible idea. They finally agreed to redo the food and bring them back. The table was incapable of holding all the dishes at once. Very uncomfortable experience. Won't be back.

Between appetizers and wine, the most amazing happy hour on Thursday...period! My wife and I did not cheap out, though. We both ordered entrees. She had the roasted beet and goat cheese salad and loved it. (She wanted more beets, but I talked her out of being greedy.) I had the scallop and risotto special. It was outstanding. The scallops were large, tender and well prepared. The risotto was the best I have ever had. We eat out almost every night at some of the best restaurants in the area and that is high praise. This fine establishment has gotten through the COVID19 debacle with style, excellent food and I must mention the staff. Every time we stop by, the people are welcoming, attentive and very knowledgeable with regard to the menus. We cannot wait to try out the beer tent. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

The food was very good and the service wonderful. We sat outside on their make shift Patio experience. They do a great job with the space they have and if your concerned about social distancing this is a great option with good food. You are on a sidewalk with cars parked right up close so it loses a little date night ambience but a good choice if inside is not an option for you.

Our waitress was a gal wearing a cool black ensemble and a stylish patterned neck mask. She was efficient, professional and smart. We had colorful, delicious drinks, and then had the superb goat cheese and crostini appetizers. Our respective meals were finished by all except for a little bit of the savory bacon wrapped meatloaf I’m saving for tomorrow. Our outside table had comfy chairs and an out of the way location so we could talk easily. If mosquitoes hadn’t been on the prowl, we might have stayed for dessert. An excellent time.

Haven't been back since COVID started until now. Everything was wonderful and we sat outside. I will tell you that there is not social distancing happening inside but since we were outside and far apart it was fine. I'm not prepared to sit inside without social distancing of the tables yet though.

Our food was delicious.

My mom and I had the perch fish fry. It was just ok. I regret not ordering the fish special they had. In general North Star has excellent food but I would say their fish fry is not the best. Now I know. I will definitely return to North Star. And sitting outside was great!! Our server was extremely attentive, friendly, and created a nice experience. Thank you North Star!!

We ate outside in the beautiful weather on their patio. Perfect for social distancing. My strawberry mojito was fabulous with just the right amount of fresh fruit. Our lunches were mostly salads- but amazing! I had blackened salmon on my poke salad. Had never eaten here before, so the waitress, Carole, gave us options and was so patient with us and very welcoming/friendly. Have already set a date for the four of us to meet back here next month. The inside looked a little more upscale with a nice long bar. Bathrooms were clean!
