Omg so good. First experience and I loved everything about it. The fine dining atmosphere but with approachability. Britney (sorry I didn’t check for spelling on the receipt) was so fun and personable...—which I love when I go to a restaurant (I work in the industry). The soup & salad combination was surprisingly filling (the salad looks small when it comes out but WOW it’s more than enough—get the house salad with the red pepper dressing! Ask Britney what her favorite dressing is—it’s that one! Lol.) definitely worth checking out. See More

Food was good. Not great. It was a very filling yet light meal. We didn't leave hungry, but also didn't have that full feel of a hearty meal. The calamari was cooked perfectly but a bit bland. T...he Bourbon Salmon was delicious as well as the goat cheese appetizer. The roasted red pepper soup was spectacular!
Service was ok. One person in our party got the wrong salad and water glasses were not filled unless requested. Although we enjoyed the meal and the ambiance, it is not worth the 30 minute drive.

This restaurant normally is a 5 star experience. However, last week I was there for dinner and ordered a well done hamburger. It came blood red so I flagged down another server since ours wasn’t aroun...d and he returned it to the kitchen. Our server came back and apologized saying it was his fault and that they were making me a new burger. When it came, it was already cut in 1/2 so I knew it was my original burger,not a new one. The bun was soggy from the juice from the original rare cooking and that was rather unpleasant. The server, again, was no where to be seen so I ate it since my friends were basically finished eating by now. I was not compensated for his error and had a very subpar meal. North Star is normally much better than this! See More

As always, delicious food and great service. On a personal note, I had won dinner for two and a free app near the Christmas holiday, which expired 3/31/18. When I called toward the end of March, Mark,... manager, very graciously extended the dinner certificate expiration until the end of April. We used that coupon tonight. Not only that, he also accepted the free app certificate. People and a company that really appreciate their customers. See More

Came in for Sunday Brunch, with my 2 year old. We sat at a table in the bar area. The staff was very kind to us, even when he had a little meltdown as we were finishing up our meal. The food was excel...lent! Very happy we came across this place and will definitely visit again. The rest of the menu looks amazing also, can't wait to try. See More

We stopped in for an early dinner. Caroline was wonderful. My husband had the bacon wrapped meat loaf and I had the cheddar and bacon jam burger. Delicious! Our only regret is that it’s not closer to ...our house! See More

First time there. Will now be one of my favorite places. The staff was amazing. I had the scallop and truffle salad, which was to dye for. Also had Creme Brulee for dessert. Delicious. Looking forward... to trying some other items See More

Excellent menu, excellent service and priced lower than the quality of dishes would suggest. I travel a lot and when I am in the Milwaukee area this will be one of my stops. The yellowfin was exquisi...te, cooked properly with a salsa topping that was awesome. See More

Food was ok. Got the traditional eggs Benedict. Hollidaise sauce tasted burnt. BUT the service was excellent.

We walked in wearing our Sunday Packer gear and asked for a table. Instant judgement because we weren't in our Sunday best. Server was quick to greet us and brought waters right away. She took our dri...nk order and came back to get our order in a fashionable time. After she brought us our food, see never came back to check us on. I got a skillet with over-easy eggs and was disappointed to find my yolk was closer to fried than easy. My boyfriend got the eggs and ham and the ham was over cooked. She came back after we were finished and asked if we'd like anything else. We just stated the check and she informed is the computer systems were down. We stated we were paying with cash and she said she couldn't help us and I informed her we had the cost on the menus and asked if she could add it up and give is a total from there. She said when she had time, she would try. We grabbed a menu, added it up, and handed her the money and I told her I would have appreciated her checking on the table. She said she did ask us if we needed anything and I said once we were completely done and out of beverages. For having a 4.4 star review, I expected a lot more and would hope every server goes by the 2-bites 2-minute policy for checking on a customer, especially when it was not busy. See More

This is a perfect venue for a shower or birthday party! We just completed a shower for our best friend and had nothing but 5 star service! If you or someone you know is looking for a place, I recommen...d North Star! See More

We went for our New Year's Eve dinner last night. Our waitress was completely wonderful. We have a 15mth old daughter and our waitress was completely thoughtful. She asked us if we wanted our daughter...s food to come out 1st (which was an awesome idea) and then later on when we ordered dessert, she bought Oli out a little scoop of ice cream with sprinkles! I wish I knew her name so I could thank her for making our night completely wonderful. Great job Northstar! We'll be back! See More

Had a lovely dinner with my two daughters, two grand daughters and one great daughter who was a last minute addition. Our waitress couldn't have been kinder and did a superb job. Sometimes when you in with a one year old you automatically get that "oh no look" but the staff couldn't have been nicer. Food was great and they even have a children's menu. One of my favorite places to dine! See More

Went last night for our anniversary dinner. Awesome food, and excellent service. Modestly priced too! Second time eating here and will definitely be back again. Applebees pricing but food is 3x better.... Thanks for running a top notch restaurant! See More

Justine, our server, was amazing and the food was beyond my expectations. I left the cocktail choice to her, which she picked nicely, I can't stand mushrooms, but the special was so delectable I ate t...hem and enjoyed it.

Can't wait to go back!!
