The food was excellent and large portions. The workers on the floor and behind the counter were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Looking forward to going back.

Looking to grab a quick bite to eat on a cold Tuesday night in Columbus. I had the Basil Chicken burrito and my husband had his standard & favorite North Star burger. Always great service and a fun casual atmosphere. Nice selection of magazines to read while you wait for them to bring your food.

Every meal is excellent. Atmosphere is casual; not the best for talking over a long leisurely meal, as they tend to be loud; good to eat if you are alone (lots of cool magazines), but good for a breakfast, lunch, dinner for terrific AND healthy food. I have been here dozens of times, and often get take-out

I love the North Star Burger with sweet potato fries! The orange juice is also really good!! My brothers love the cloud nine pancakes (not gluten free :() and the cheeseburger. I would like to see gluten free baked goods and pancakes in the future!

Northstar is one of my Columbus go-to's when I am town visiting friends. The food is always good and the place is usually hopping, which means things are fresh. It can get loud, especially on a Sunday morning when lots of local families are out and about. Been there for Sunday breakfast and also Saturday lunch when my friend and... More

Love the restaurant, love the menu, essentially a self serve breakfast bar, my only complaint is breakfast should not cost $50.00.

Do yourself a HUGE favor and enjoy the pimento cheese dip appetizer. The food is so fresh, flavorful and delicious. My only gripe is that there isn't a location closer to where I live. I took my manager here who is a foodie from Chicago...he absolutely loved it as well and it is now a requirement every visit. Simply the... More

We had the best experience at Northstar! We had never been there before and so we were a little lost at ordering, but the customer service we got was outstanding! Not only did we get a run-down of the menu, but after our selections were made we were told that our dinner was free, since it was or first time... More
