The tables in the main dining room are uncomfortably close together. The host was lovely and moved our party of 6 to a back room with a little more space from other tables.

Our server did not know how to handle nut allergies and didn't understand the basics which included not being sure what constitutes a tree nut. I did not have confidence in her ability to navigate life threatening allergies. In fact, when we spoke about dessert, she was surprised that I asked about pecans in crusts, almond extracts, etc. Like it had never occurred to her that those things would be in dessert foods. It was unsettling at best.

The salads were all fine. Nothing exceptional. The beet salad have very few beets and too much dressing. But the main course is not to be believed - the bacon wrapped meatloaf was not edible. It was a pate? Condensed pureed meat (like spam or canned dog food) wrapped in a piece of bacon. Never in my life have I seen nor eaten anything so awful.

Were it not for the fact that we were traveling and did not know the area and were famished, we would have walked out. It was that bad.

The description of the food sounds like it is an upscale bistro but the actual food was on par with Olive Garden. Pass this one up and keep looking!

Everything was delicious. Service was fantastic. We are travelers from out of state, worried a bit about casual wear we had on, but no worries, people dressed from business to very casual.

The food & service was on point!!! Read the reviews, and went for it.

I ordered the short ribs- fantastic and husband ordered the meatloaf-
By the end both plates cleaned!!

The vibe here is so negative. Arrived and we were sitted right next to a big party. I asked we move 6ft further. They moved us but the waitress came back and told me that that specific table (the restaurant was empty) would be needed in an hour. Food was okay. Noah out waiter was great. But man the first impression just gave us such a bad vibe.

Amazing food and service. Would have liked for the servers to either be wearing a mask or at least keep a bit of distance or put a sign up that everyone on staff has been vaccinated. Still getting 5 stars. Awkward point in time.

We received a gift card and had never been before. We felt the crowd was a bit on the older side, but definitely friendly enough. Not much to the atmosphere, but our waitress was lovely, super helpful, and very friendly. The food was outstanding! I just wish there was a more trendy upscale feel to the place...felt more like a supper club.

NS continues to be one of our favorites and we eat there often because it's close to our home. The quality of the food and service is constantly first rate. Great fish fry. Great short ribs. Great martinis.

We always enjoy lunch at North Star because every meal we have eaten here has been delicious. My cousin and I had the salmon salad which is always a favorite. We also like the Reuben sandwich and shrimp dinner, and particularly the scallops! Delicious scallops prepared well are often not on the menu at many places, so that’s a great choice. Whatever you order know that it will be good! Also Carol is a great waitress and gives pleasant, helpful service! We will be back!

Food was very good, but a bit pricey for portions. Nice, upscale atmosphere, but felt strange to be seated at 5:00 directly next to the only other two tables in the restaurant (especially during COVID). Overall a great experience, our server was attentive and friendly and did wonderful job.

Perch fish fry was horrible. Very thin piece up perch encrusted in dry, heavy crust. Coke slaw and tartar sauce were absolutely tasteless.
Waitress came to take our drink order with a dirty plate in her hand, when she came back to take our order she didn’t wait a second until we were finished taking or excuse herself, she simply talk over us in a louder voice. When she brought the meals, she stood on one side of the table and handed the plates over the table instead of walking around the table and serving each person. Terrible training.
