Yup! Surprised me when a couple of colleagues took me here for lunch. The bear jn the glass case was a little over the top but the service, food, and atmosphere were cool. The cheese bread is delicious and the portions very nice. Our service was excellent. The place is really dark - no windows and dim lighting. Peanut shells... More

Love the coziness of the "snow covered" rooftop outiede and the uniqueness of the inside with the big bear and log walls. The food is excellent although shockingly high for lunch. But that's easily th only meal consumed that day as the portions are significant. It's dark in there...just an FYI...no external lighting. Very good and service is always spot... More

Five of us all had excellent lunches here. Food was great, our server was superb and the portions were huge. I had the chef's salad and it could have easily fed three of us; I'm not kidding. The server said he's only seen one person finish it all, not a sight I'd care to experience! Our only very minor complaint... More

When my hubby and I were dating almost 44 years ago, we happened upon North Woods Inn in Covina. We fell in love with it so much there were a few times we ate lunch there and then dinner also. It was my first time eating at a restaurant that actually encouraged you to throw stuff on the floor -... More

Stopped here for dinner on a spur of the moment. Timing was right because there was no wait. Its all very rustically decorated. Nice bar area . A little dark when coming in from outside and bright sunshine. Large dining room and very attentive waitstaff. We each ordered a Lumberjack steak, which is a 9 or 13 oz sirloin .... More

We came here through recommendations from friends. Ample parking at the back and it's a great looking building. Going inside, however, it was so dark with no windows, overhead lamps on low, and glowing orange wall lights. Atmospheric perhaps but when one needs a flashlight in order to read the menu, it's too dark! Fortunately we were seated quickly without... More

We moved out of the area so I haven't been to this place in years. After we went to our daughters graduation at Azusa Pacific University we all met at the North Woods Inn. They let my wife decorate the table. There is a bar. My wife and I had filet mignon. Perfect! Baked potatoes are huge. Salad is family... More

This place is the last anyone should go to if they want to watch their weight. For the rest it is great. They start you off with a bowl of peanuts and you throw the shells on the floor. Then comes the salads. A green salad with blue cheese dressing and a red cabbage salad with a vinaigrette. The red... More

My wife and I first ate at North Woods on a date over 30 years ago and we thought it was the bee's knees as we were in our teens. Over the years we have eaten there countless times. This is the first time that I have rated the North Woods even though I have been in the hospitality business... More
