I have gone to this restaurant since it opened as when I lived in Southern California it was one of the clients of the accounting firm I worked for. But last night was a night that would not have brought me back if it was my first time. We were waiting for two more of our party to show up... More

Nice atmosphere. Don't like the menu system. Food was better than average but not great. Our server had the personality of a rock. We were a party of 4, 2 of us arrived 15 minutes early and had to wait to be seated until the other 2 arrived despite the fact the restraunt was half empty. Not only is the... More

I have passed this restaurant numerous times on my way to and from Disneyland ... always wondering why there was a log cabin with fake snow on the top so far (20 minutes or less) outside of Disneyland. While staying at a nearby hotel, I decided to check it out and found one of my new favorite 'dive restaurants' in... More

We had driven past this restaurant many times and always commented on the fake snow covered roof in the middle of California heat waves and finally decided to stop in for quick meal, thinking they will have some different things as the sign does say, sandwiches and dinner. We were sorely disappointed as the menu prices spiked higher than a... More

When we arrived I felt like I was in the mountains, which I loved. It looks like a giant wood cabin. The salad was awesome, the even bring a big bowl of red cabbage and awesome cheese bread. There are peanuts on the table, and you throw the shells on the ground. The food is not cheap, but it was... More

Went while traveling on business while in La Mirada. The food was marginal at best, I will not be going back based on poor quality of food, ambience of the restaurant is dark and dungeon like and the prices are way to high for poor food quality. This place needs a refresh or needs to be closed.

Burgers and salads (especially) were quite large; my co-worker ordered a salad that ended up being enough to feed her and two co-workers back at the office. Spent $50 on lunch (burger for myself, salad for my co-worker and chicken for another co-worker); service was quick but very expensive for lunch for three.

I saw that Northwoods had good reviews so I felt compelled to correct that. Atmosphere is kitschy with peanut shells on the floor and cabin/lodge decor. Save the money and buy your steak at the market. Overpriced, overcooked,over seasoned and overrated.

I am always a bit leery of thematic restaurants. My impression is that many sacrifice quality in food or in service for the "overall experience" (i.e. Rainforest Cafe). Fortunately, North Woods Inn is the exception to the rule. Our server, Jobe, was top notch. He was friendly, helpful and attentive but never pushy. The food, both in terms of quality... More

This restaurant got some good reviews on Google (found it on my Android app), so I figured that I'd give it a shot. Their menu includes mostly beef and seafood items, and each is served with ungodly portions of side dishes -- two salads (green with blue cheese dressing and red cabbage with a warm dressing), rice pilaf, baked potato,...
