It's so easy to pick North Star Bistro. Ambience is pleasant, food is top notch. Waiter tonight was really good.

Great food and nice atmosphere, and though our server was fairly new, she was very helpful and our order, including a few special requests, came through perfectly.

Pretty good - gluten free pizza good - pan seared cod fish fry good. Nothing generous although healthy -a treat to have dinner out kind of eve. One small roll pp. Only complaint is the staff seemed stressed. Really, ok to relax and smile I'm so glad you came in and welcome!😃

11-11-2021 Birthday lunch turned out perfect. Great menu choices so everyone got something they enjoyed. I suggested North Star as a change from our normal venues and it turned into a very special lunch experience including a wonderful creme brûlée for the birthday gal, me. Should have gotten a picture maybe next year.

Great food and great service. A little noisy but everyone was having a good time and my lunch party was contributing to the volume! I will eat here again next time I'm in the area.

I requested a quiet table because I was meeting with my Bookclub. Northstar Bistro generously seated us in a side room. The wait staff were attentive, the food was enjoyable and everyone at the table thought it was a great restaurant choice.

I am surprised the quality of the food has remained so high when most places locally have dropped terribly. Indeed, the prices are up and service hours reduced - but our server Lacie was incredibly attentive and kind - kudos to her and management.
Whomever is in the back cooking - thank you for keeping us well fed in challenging times!!

Our dining experience was ok. Nothing stood out as being beyond ok. My salmon was overcooked and my husband’s chicken and mushroom risotto was not what he expected. The eggplant and zucchini appetizer was good. Our server was very nice and checked on us frequently.

It seems I write a review for North Star every month or two. If it wasn't very good we wouldn't keep coming back, but it is so we do. One of the best beer-battered fish frys around.

Has been my favorite for so long but have had two bad experiences recently. Basically with the food and the service. Last night the Pecan crusted whitefish was lacking the pecans. It was a very small piece of fish with plain breading. The fish was so thin that I felt I was eating breading and it was tasteless. Felt it was a waste of time to finish eating it. I asked for something besides the spinach side and was offered broccoli which was served Luke warm with no flavoring. After our food was served the server made himself scarce. Then to top it off, I wanted to use the $25 award and was told there was a zero balance. I finally was able to flag down our server and asked him to get the manager. She came and was able to credit the reward.

One of my favorites because it is always top notch. Wonderful place to catch up with friends or celebrate an occasion. Yummy food, great ambiance and excellent staff. Also, there are always GF options for an allergy-free meal.

Can’t beat the ambience and even though there has been a staff shortage, the bartender came outside and made sure we were taken care of even though she was responsible for the people at the bar and other diners! Just an all around great place to dine.
