We'd been to the Northstar before for lunch. This was a breakfast stop. Looking at some of the previous reviews, I have to comment that on both of our visits, we did not encounter the "locals first" issue. The server came over with menus just after we sat down and shortly thereafter with morning coffee. Our breakfast orders came out... More

I totally agree with another reviewer that said locals get severed first. We came here for breakfast, we waited 10 minutes for a menu, ( there was only 8 people in here at the time) and another 15 for our order to be taken. Meanwhile 4 other tables came in and got served right away. They were obviously local people... More

A good bet for breakfast at the counter. Good coffee and fast service. Had lunch there as well. Worth a try.

Had a late breakfast with family. It's a large typical looking diner on the inside. We sat at a booth, which was quite hard and uncomfortable but not bad enough to stop us from enjoying the meal.Food was great, the omelet was cooked well, the over-easy eggs were perfect, good coffee and very friendly service. They seem to be in... More

We had lunch there with friends and it was not very clean. The window sills needed dusting, very badly and service was a little slow as they were short staffed and so was the kitchen. But all in all not too bad.

The kind of restaurant that you grew up going to. Old guys at the counter and marina workers coming in for breakfast. Waitress okay,not very talkative. Food was good. Knew how to make perfect eggs. Decor could do with a update. Coffee very strong.

Ordered within 5 minutes of sitting down \o/.... An hour later after no less than 8 other tables were seated and served, some twice, we paid for our coffee and left... Seems that if they know you, u get placed at the front of the cooks line. Funny thing is we are locals, just not regulars I guess, and certainly... More

Stopped in here for breakfast on a early Monday morning when leaving for home in Ohio. A lot of locals eat here. Most everybody kinda knew other people and the waitresses. Friendly service and food cooked properly. Nice older CLEAN place. I would return again.

I guess my biggest problem is when I'm sitting down eating I tend to look at things maybe more than most people but an improperly displayed American flag and holes in the floor. Multiple tables that were not clean doesn't do much for me sorry and the hardest thing for me is that they have a great location and it... More
