This restaurant prides itself on EXCELLENT food and OUTSTANDING service. There is nothing that I have had that has been a disappointment. If you’re looking for steaks cooked perfectly cooked, this is the place to go!

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.

My favorite restaurant ever!! Food is always good . Salads are awesome. You can split and meal for a fee because you get slid and breast included. Staff is friendly. We have been going there for more then 35 years.

steaks are great, salads are crisp and tasty plus the delicious garlic bread and very generous portions. A bit pricey but worth it.

This is almost and institution in the East San Gabriel Valley. I do not believe I have ever had a bad meal there. It is known for its steaks but I like the fish. The cheese bread is unforgettable.

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