North Star Lodge is a great location - right on the water. Traditional dining room with a canoe serving the "salad bar". Over the years the service and food have declined. It is almost as if they believe they don't need to earn anybody's business anymore, that they will get business anyway. I have numerous issues with this establishment which...

This place is awesome. We've dined here for both lunch and dinner. The food is exceptional and the staff is extremely attentive. The setting is tremendous with a stunning view of Star Lake. We've enjoyed the Pot Roast, Pork Chop and Salmon on Friday night. Don't pass this up!

Do not go to this fine place if you want to use a credit card. Make sure that you have your checkbook, or plenty of cash with you. This place is a very neat, clean, rustic place, that appears to be very well and tastefully maintained. We did have to wait to be seated. While we waited, we kept making...

My husband and I got married in Wisconsin in 1991 and have been visiting the Northwoods every year since. We went to the North Star on our anniversary on a Wednesday, July 2, 2014 around 6:30 p.m. I asked for a table for 2 and the hostess asked if we had a reservation. When I said no, she said it...

The owners were so accommodating and were awesome hosts. Cabins were awesome. Food delicious. A long way away, but soooo worth the trip. It was a great place to attend a small wedding. Enjoyed a beautiful fall weekend when the leaves were at their peak! Would be awesome any time of the year.

I understand that this place is suppose to have a rustic feel but unless you like the smell of mold and enjoy using a communal shower/bathroom this place is not for you. The furnishings were old, insulation under the windows was exposed, and one of our beds collapsed. No TV, radio, WiFi, or signs of civilization. We couldn't get out...

This is a step above most Wisconsin fish fry fare. The breading is very light and crisp. Excellent service with a very nice salad bar. A little off the beaten path but once there it is a hidden gem. We will be back.

This restaurant is a bit hard to find up on highway K in the tiny hamlet of Star Lake. It is nestled in the confines of beautiful little condo development on a ridge overlooking the lake. The restaurant entrance is highlighted by a well tended, colorful garden. A wall sized window at the end of the building allows everyone in...

This was our second visit to Hintz's, once on a Saturday evening in the winter and once on a Friday night in the peak of the summer season. I'll admit, as the last reviewer stated, the setting is nice and the Friday fish really is good. The other menu items we tried were fine as well - nothing extraordinary, but...

By far, one of the best Friday night Fish Fry's in the north woods of Wisconsin. The Lodge and dining room is extremely charming with a homey feeling with beautiful flowers and surroundings. Gorgeous view of Star Lake while you eat if you ask to sit by the large picture window. The food is always consistently wonderful, and the salad...
