Rustic atmosphere with hearty food

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

North Woods Inn in Covina never disappoints. Fabulous green salad and red cabbage salad and the best cheese bread ever. Choices of steak, seafood, chicken dinners. Great sandwiches and ton of peanuts to munch on while waiting for your order. Hope this place is around forever.

We go to North Woods Inn quite often and always for special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. We have never been disappointed with anything we've ordered. Because they serve such large portions, we often get the open faced sandwiches for dinner, which is satisfying. They are also very accommodating with large parties. We love this place.

Nothing has changed about the North Woods Inn. The food is very good, as is the service. Like a trip back in time.

This restaurant mini-chain has been around forever for good reason. It's a fun place to go, tossing peanut shells, the steaks are great, and it's all very reasonably priced!
