My family had lunch there on a Sunday afternoon. There were 3 children in our group and the staff was very accommodating. The menu had something for everyone ( vegan, gluten free, small children) and everyone enjoyed it.

We will go back!

Good food and cocktails. Nice atmosphere. Quiet enough to have a conversation during dinner.

Another excellent meal and service. Would recommend the crusted whitefish and steak sandwich.. both very good . Our server, Maxwell, was very attentive in refilling coffee and water and letting us leisure through dinner.... It was a quiet Monday night due to the pending snow storms and we were so happy to be inside warm feasting on a great meal on a great lake in Shorewood!

The salmon salad, at both locations, is always very good

The 3 people who ordered the steak on mashed potatoes all had very tough pieces of meat (couldn't chew).the salads were ok.the premeal bread was not up to your standards of last year.In fact the entire meal was not up to our last years experience.
I was celebrating my birthday w/ my children & their wives & was embarrassed w/ the food.

Service was rather slow on a non-busy evening. I always order the meatloaf here as it's usually very good. This time, there was too much sauce and it was only lukewarm, as were the mashed potatoes. Other entrees were decent.

Took my nephew to North Star Bistro before he went back to school. Food was great, the service was good even though we had to ask for bread. I had a martini made with an allspice syrup. It was excellent!
North Star Bistro makes the best short ribs in town. It's really a great meal.

My sister and a mutual friend went to North Star on a bitter cold Wednesday night and were immediately greeted warmly and led to a delightful table. Our enthusiastic server made us feel at ease. The menu was supplemented by the soup of the day and a special. Two of us tried the soup of the day, a mushroom soup, rich and flavorful. My sister had a cheeseburger, and our friend and I tried the special, a mushroom risotto with scallops. Delicious and perfect on such a cold night. The glass of tempranillo I had was a good accompaniment to the robust mushroom flavor. All in all, a nice evening.

We had not been there for awhile and have now re-added it to our go to list in the North Shore. The tuna is fantastic!

I am a repeat customer who lives in Florida 6 months of the year, and live 100 miles from Shorewood the other 6 months. My wife and I get to Milwaukee several times and always enjoy this restaurant. Only complaint is I always leave a little hungry, and don’t feel like popping for desert and all those calories. Portions could be bigger or throw in a side salad.

First time for brunch. we have been there before for dinner and always enjoyed it. The service was erratic. Our waiter was attentive at first but it was a long time between our beverage order and ordering our entrees. Eventually we had to ask for him. The food when it came was good. My gravlax on potato pancake version of eggs benedict was very tasty. The others in our group of 4 enjoyed their meals as well.

The food and service here are always good,. The problem is parking. Be prepared to walk several blocks when the restaurant is busy. This won't be a popular option in winter. The Village of Shorewood needs to address the shortage of off-street parking.
