GOOD FOOD WITH A TWIST

I like going here because they have different types of meat. The downside is the noise. The dining room is very close and therefore very loud. But the food is worth the stop.

We've been here several times and have always had good food and good service . My wife likes the salmon salad, the shrimp salad, and the taco salad. The pulled pork sandwich is my favorite, but I've also had a hamburger and a horseshoe here and they were both good. We've always had friendly attentive servers as well, so we'll... More

Absolutely wonderful service!!! I own a restaurant and good help is hard to find. Our waitress said she's been there for 15 years and that really says something about the management 😄😄😄 Great food and a neat atmosphere Clean bathrooms👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

I have been there several times, and have never been disappointed. It is a casual atmosphere, a backwoods type place, that serves chicken, fish, elk, bison, etc. their walleye (actually whitefish) is really good, and I love their fresh fried chips. It's definitely a fun time!

Westwood has some unique things on their menu that you won't normally find and they are worth trying. The staff are always nice, friendly and willing to help explain the choices you may be considering. Once you order, the food is served in a reasonable amount of time so you are not sitting and waiting for unreasonable amounts of time.... More

Great menu. Items available include things like bison and elk...not available anywhere else of which I am aware. Reasonable prices. Great selection of draft beers. And, a wonder land for young and old alike as the decor is a taxidermist showcase

Stopped in to try it after a friends recommendation. The food was very good! I got the wings and they were flavorful & juicy. They do have wild meat options if you are feeling adventurous. The menu has much variety and I love the way they print it! The table & chair were dirty the last time we came in,... More

Stopped to eat before going to the airport for the return of the Honor Flight. Service was very good as well as the food. Drinks got down a little bit and they were immediately filled. Food came out very quickly.

Our friends took us there for lunch. This is neat place with a hunting theme. The menu is printed like a newspaper which we thought was very unique. They gave a decent beer selection. We ordered a tenderloin and was afraid it would be pounded to flat. We were surprised that it wasn't. We ordered the house made chips with... More

I tried this place a few years ago and had a hard time with the menu choices. This time was different. I'm not sure if their menu changed or if my palate has. They have regular offerings but also offer bison, gator, etc. My bison horseshoe was really good! I'll be back!
