A Covina staple, and an american classic. From the salad and cheese bread to the perfectly cooked steaks, this is everything you could for for and more. No matter where you're from, Northwoods is bound to become a family tradition.

Unfortunately Northwoods Inn does not accept reservations. It gets very crowded so I recommend if you go at dinner time, be prepared to wait.
