Food was very good. Service was great and friendly. Four star name fits it well, not a 5 star though. Prices were very low for the quality food you get.

our first visit - at first I thought typical senior citizens restaurant but as we walked out I was surprised at how full the restaurant got and several families with small children were there. The place is somewhat run down, the window blinds were broken so my husband had the sun in his face through dinner but it was busy... More

The fried chicken dinner here is exceptional!! We did have a problem on one occasion with the side of gravy - had some type of cleaner?? in the monkey dish - was not edible. The owners are wonderful ppl and a huge asset to this community.

We stopped here while visiting our daughter who lives in Pewaukee. It was a solid choice. My wife had the weight watchers special (although she really doesn't need to). The plate was piled high with cottage cheese and fresh fruit. The steak was done to perfection and better she said, than others she's had. My daughter's chimichanga was enough for... More

Just the other day, my wife and I enjoyed another great visit to this place. Our food was tops, had prompt service, and the prices are fair indeed. My omelet was perfect as was my wife's. The juice was listed as small, but the size was more like a large. This is the best truck diner around with the best... More

We typically go to Four Star for breakfast on a Saturday or Sunday morning. Old style diner, truck stop atmosphere. Has been here for a long time. It may not be fancy, but the people are friendly, and the service is always attentive. We go for the breakfast skillets and bottomless coffee. Prices are extremely reasonable.

My husband and I were traveling and dined at this restaurant on a Saturday evening at about 9:30 p.m. We had seen several cars in the parking lot so we figured it must be pretty good because others were dining there. We are believers of supporting local restaurants so we chose Four Star. When we entered the restaurant, we were... More

I'm not sure what other TA contributors are raving about. This place is dirty, and the breakfast subpar.
