For my 2nd 'girls getaway' in Old Forge, I went with the tavern at the Northwoods Inn primarily due to the fact that they had a deck overlooking fourth lake. We previously decided to eat at the tavern vs. their restaurant due to the fact that we wanted something light and that ended up being the only choice anyways due to a wedding having been booked at the Inn. Our only choice was to eat on their deck. Again, it would have been our choice anyways due to the view. We all ordered hamburgers and at least 2 out of the 5 ordered were not perpared as ordered. I ordered mine medium rare and it came out well done. The service was a bit lacking as our plates were quickly removed while they still had food remaining on them (our waitress didn't even ask if we were done). Perhaps the quality of the food and the service were impacted by the large wedding party.
I would still give this establishment another chance since their setting is just beautiful. I was so looking forward to enjoying a drink down near the waterfront on their dock. Unfortunately, it was rather windy on the day/time that we were there. Menu looked quite interesting and varied so I anxious to try this place again.
