Everything was great! Had the crab cake salad and would certainly get it again.

Our food was quite good, our server was just OK. A few at the table ordered soup & it came out after their meals? There was quite a bit of confusion on our waitresses part over which burger was which. I was embarrassed for her & since there were 8 of us the tip was added on, which I'm usually fine with but she really wasn't an 18-20% tip worthy server. Again, very nice but not very accurate, almost seemed flustered by us?

Pasta was over cooked. Fish fry (perch) was over cooked. The food was not good enough to make us come back.

We had an open table reservation and were seated right away. We sat for 15 minutes before anyone came to our table. Once our waters were filled, our waitress came and all was okay. She brought butter when she first approached us but it was another 15 minutes until we got a roll and heard the specials. We ordered right away because we didn't want to sit another 15 minutes with our service. The food was very good. Knowing it was a Friday night and they had reservations, the service could have been quicker.

Everything was most enjoyable except the music choice. I didn’t want to be a cranky 60 something and complain, so I went with it and it became less noticeable as the crowd grew. (maybe someone else complained?). Our waitress couldn’t do enough for the three of us. Of course I didn’t get her name, but I would ask for her the next time I’m there. All three of us enjoyed perusing the variety of foods on the menu, but someone in our group recommended the mushroom and chicken risotto- so we ALL had that.
It was yummy!

We had dined at North Star in December. The food was excellent and service was very nice! We were celebrating my fathers birthday, even though he is no longer with us. We first were seated in the back room. It was so loud you were not able to hear anyone close to you. We moved to the bar, to a pub table. The waiter was great, he had personality and was very nice, but he could not make up for so so food. My husband and I ordered the same items that we had in December and they just were not as good, and were just so so. My mother had the fried perch, and it was over cooked, and they were very nice to replace it, but she felt that is was breaded too heavily and with a sweet breading that she did not like. We had built this place up as excellent to my mother and is was not. We will try it again, but will wait a while.

Food and drinks were great. Had a big table and ate early. The rest of the restaurant was empty, so no noise issues. We had steak, short ribs, salmon, burgers and a flat bread pizza and everything was delicious.

The food was good. The four people in our party all had sandwiches. Our server was very attentive. Martini's were excellent. Noise level was okay but there were not a lot of people in the restaurant on the Wednesday night we ate there. Would imagine if it was full the noise lever would be very high. You also would get noise from the bar area.

We are regulars (about every six weeks) at North Star because the restaurant is so consistent in providing excellent food and service . Of all their great menu items (and we've tried most), we think their Friday fish fry is one of the very best in the metro area. And among the best waitpersons anywhere is Jessica.

I had a group of 8 - 5 guests from out of town and 3 from my company. Our table was well-situated so that we could hear each other comfortably. My guests enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Our server was friendly and attentive without getting in the way. One guest asked our server to have the chef prepare his favorite item - he loved his entre and made a point of telling the server to thank the chef. Our drinks were all terrific as well. I have taken business associates here several times, for lunch and dinner and I've had a great experience with many compliments every time!

I was very pleased with the service and my food. I had been craving a good bowl of french onion soup for the past week. Then our waitress informs me that french onion soup was one of the two "soup specials" of the day. I was thrilled with the choices and my french onion soup was great. My Reuben sandwich was tasty and tender.
I will definitely be back to this restaurant despite the driving distance from Greendale.
I will be recommending your restaurant to my friends.

Only 2 blue cheese olives allowed in my Manhattan... otherwise they would have to “charge me extra”. Seemed kind of cheap for a restaurant trying to be classy. A couple large bones in my “naked cod” fish fry. Otherwise a very nice time

We went with another couple after a family event. It is easy to get to and plenty of "free" parking. The bartenders were very friendly and social. Darlene, our food server was knowlegable and explained the specials. She has a nice disposition and did not rush us but
checked in periodically to see if all was OK. Super food too. Will return.
