Expensive and full of loud drunks

I took my wife here for our anniversary, the food was OK, but they are VERY over priced...worse part though, there is no division between you and the bar, and the "regulars" were having far too much to drink..didnt enjoy ourselves at all, but hey, at least it cost four times what it was worth.

Excellent food, good prices, attentive staff, good décor. WE go there every summer several times. My special favorite is their lamb chops which charm even those who don't like lamb. Their steaks, too, are excellent.

We have been coming here for a few years now. Lisa is an excellent server. The food is very good. I like their wine list. It clean and warm. We visit in the winter, usually. If you are looking for a nicer restaurant in the Tawases, this is it. A good value for the price.

Visited Northwoods Steak House several times but held of reviewing until now so that I could give the average of all my experiences there - because there are several bad reviews. I have to say that in more than 5 visits I've had nothing but excellent food and excellent service. It's a bit pricey - but I do feel that... More

Up north for the weekend and decided to give it a try. Chris, our server was excellent, good menu, great ambiance, good wine list, well outfitted bar. The food was excellent, adjustments we asked for well accommodated, and in general a worthwhile dining experience. I recommend it highly.

We came in search of Prime Rib - everyone asked said this was the place. Sadly, we were told no this evening as they only serve on Fri-Sat. They do not open until 4:30pm, and were not fully ready for guests even at that point. But our server was friendly and attentive and they offered many choices, even if this... More

We visited this area last week and visited several restaurants. The service was excellent, the steaks were excellent and the lobster bisque was better than any I've had in years. You get what you pay for at this restaurant

My husband and I had lightly blackened whitefish. Perfectly done. I had garlic mashed potatoes and a house salad (spring mix with blue cheese, cherries and walnuts. Also house coleslaw. Hubby had rice and lobster bisque. We both loved our meals. Interior is as it sounds, woodsy with fish and animals. Nice surprise in East Tawas.

I will never go back. It was really cold in there. Potatoes were lukewarm and I could tell they had been made much earlier and had been reheated. A 7.95 plate sharing charge and they just brought an extra plate. Didn't even split it for us! We had a Restaurant.com coupon on our phone and because of their bad wifi,... More
