Unique dining experience.

Very unique restaurant from the exterior of the building to the Stiffed grizzly bear on display inside, the caged area in the lounge and the fountain in the waiting area. The menu is on the table when you sit down then eat your shelled peanuts and toss the shells on the floor when you're done. They... read more

Have eaten here several times. Food has always been very good. The salads and cheese bread are great. If you are drinking stick to wine or beer because they serve a short pour on drinks.

My family loves the atmosphere here. We all enjoy the salads and cheese bread BUT the rest of most of the meals leave a lot to be desired. We do not feel the quality of the meals are worth the money they charge.

After all these years The North Woods Inn is still the place for great steaks and seafood in the San Gabriel Valley. Huge portions of tasty food from an extensive menu are served at this well known restaurant. They don't take reservations, so expect to wait, especially on busy weekend nights. Relax in the attractive cocktail lounge with your favorite... More

I've been coming to Northwoods for many years. Unlike many other places, the food quality has not declined. Steaks are perfect, cheese bread and potatoes fatteningly great. I get a to-go order of beef barley soup on a cold day. Yum!

Food is good. Soft lit and quiet. Tiffany lamps. Brass and logs. Fireplace. Old style. A place for conversation, not partying.

For work sometimes I'm in various cities......I always take the opportunity to visit Northwoods Inn for their special Salad/Red Cabbage Salad and famous cheese bread. I grew up in Covina, and this was always the special birthday Dinner, so I have fond memories of returning there and visiting. I will sometimes even get it to go and savor it later.... More

It's OK kinda fun if u have never been before. Food is about 3.5/5 stars. A little expensive, but if u go there for a special occasion you can impress your friends that you ate at a "real" log cabin. Sometimes too crowded and crammed with peeps. Don't really Care About Aunt Bertha's goiter problem as narrated by Overweight soccer... More
