St. Patrick’s Day gathering of friends. Best corned beef and cabbage dinner.! Other delicious items to choose from,too.
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.
Food and service are consistently good. Atmosphere is pleasant. Good wine selections.
Service was very good, food excellent, nice place with a good overall atmosphere.
Everything was so enjoyable.
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
Good atmosphere, slow service, mediocre food.
Great Food - always consistent!
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.
thank you for a lovely graduation lunch for my son. Also the waitresses were lovely.
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!
Friday Fish Fry is outstanding
Great service. Not noisy.
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.
We had a very good dinner the six of us. Our server Elle was very good and took care of us. WE had a little bit of everything from the menu, Salmon looked great, Whitefish - two different entrees- one was the special and the other off of the standard menu, both were really good, Crab cake salad was also enjoyed. We had a birtheday at our table and when we started to sing Happy Birthday the whole restaurant joined in and 5 minutes later another table had a birthday and 5 minutes after that so did another table. The whole restaurant was into it. A lot of fun and always enjoy North Star American Bistro.
North Star Bistro is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. The food and service are always good. The menu features many dishes that are unique to this restaurant. It's noise
level is high and lighting bright so don't expect a romantic dinner for two there.
Beautiful location and atmosphere, great for date nights, and no rush from servers for longer conversation while enjoying your dinner.
We have eaten there MANY times and it is always good. It is amazingly consistent and a great value. You can do well with any thing from a simple burger to a full fish meal. By far our favorite place for everyday or family events.
Both locations always good...the Brookfield location is near our home so we frequent that location. Friendly staff and barkeeps...Mike and Duffy run very good restaurants....
Everything was great for what we were looking for.
Always a treat to go to Northstar. We go there once a month or so, usually for a special dinner with friends, when you want good food, excellent service, and a relatively quiet place for conversation and catching up. I've tried just about everything on the menu, from seafood to vegetarian to carnivore, it's all good. Good wine list. It's a bit pricey or we would go there more often.
Delicious food in a delightful, quiet and calm atmosphere!
By far, the best food Shorewood has to offer!
Even stayed for dessert
Fantastic...our fish was delicious! Service good. I would recommend the cream Brûlée for dessert.
NSB Shorewood was friendly as always. The broccoli cream soup and almond crusted whitefish were very good and we enjoyed coffee and soda. Very attentive service.
Great food and service. Friday night, a little loud.
We really enjoy trying new places in our community and we're very very pleased with our meal, our service, the quality and the uniqueness of the blendings and pairings of the food, it just was wonderful thank you so much.
Excellent food, beautifully presented; attentive, efficient service
The noise level is a little too high.
I took two friends to NORTH STAR the other night and we had a wonderful time. It was not a busy night, so it was great for conversation. I love sitting in a booth - they are roomy and comfy. Our waiter, Henry, was excellent. He was able to talk about local brews and was very familiar with the menu and he was very attentive, without being intrusive. The food was really good and we split a dessert - a flourless chocolate cake that was great!
Food was really terrific and satisfying - but server Ella was not - she indeed might have been handling too many people as the room had many large large parties, but she was only there to quickly press me for my order and bring it.
They had a nice patio area, but the food was awful.
I think my friends loved their salads and dessert. My food was great except the steak was a little tough. It was a little hard to converse because there were many large tables with many little children. But people were obviously loving it and having a very good time. Our waitress was excellent.
This has become my family's favorite local celebrating restaurant. We appreciate your excellent food, your unique playroom for the many little kids in our bunch, and we certainly appreciate your outstanding service.
The food was ok... if I were only paying for the convenience of not having to cook for myself. But they charge you much more that just a convenience surcharge. Thus, I can't justify the cost per plate. Or cost per drink for that matter.
They definitely have a very laissez-faire approach to serving. I suppose on a date or something where I have copious amounts of time to fritter away getting to know someone, I might have felt like this wasn't such a bad thing. But when you're trying to have a normally paced dinner, long enough to enjoy without being too long, it fails. Miserably.
At the price I would be quick to recommend numerous other restaurants before succumbing to suggesting this one. If they drop their price per plate by $4-5, then I might take another stab. Otherwise, my suggestion stands: go somewhere else.
