Friendly staff, good food, very inexpensive. Quentessential neighbor restaurant. Delicious chicken salad and homestyle sides. Crowded inside, so we opted for the picnic tables in the large grassy area.

Another review of North Star. Good food, friendly service, and lots of local atmospheres. Hubby had the seafood dinner, I had the famous Bacon Cheese Hamburger Your Way, with a side of lemon pie. Bill had his usual banana Pudding. Took home a to-go box...as the food helping is quite generous.More

Stopped to eat here on way home from Doctor's appointment. Ordered the fried flounder with french fries and coleslaw. The flounder was so overcooked it was difficult to cut even with a steak knife. Fries were also overly cooked and hard to chew. Have eaten...here many times but this was the worst!More

The North Star Restaurant is a great little old country diner located just a short distance to the East of Exit #162 off of Interstate 81 in Virginia. I stop at this diner almost every time I travel up and down Interstate 81. There is...a spot where you can let your dog out to get a stretch under some shade trees next to the North Star Restaurant. I usually just get the daily special at the North Star and it has always been good. My dog Sadie and I love the North Star.More

If you appreciate an old style southern cheeseburger, then this is the place to go. like the ones at the drive-ins back in the 50s and 60s.

Think you will need to call for breakfast hours. They are open 7 days a week and serve breakfast each day in morning. They DO NOT serve breakfast all day.
