My wife and I went here for dinner and it wasn’t the best dining experience, but it certainly wasn’t the worst either. I had the chicken and ribs with mashed potatoes. Plenty of food to be sure but it was underwhelming as far as flavor...More

Rustic saw dust on the floor place. Prices are reasonable and the food hits the mark. Filets and baked potato are top notch. Surprised that the chicken was also really delicious.

One of the original restaurants of the area. We went there for our first anniversary back in 1981 and had a wonderful meal. We have gone a few times since, but honestly about 20 years ago felt the meal, service and experience were so lacking...More

This restaurant has been here longer than me. The first time I came was in 1979, just a small girl. My family loved it, and at the time it was one of the only nice restaurants in town. Today the feel is much the same...More

Backwoods Inn was a disappointment. In the past, it was a "go to" place for many of my friends. I hadn't been there in years and the latest visit was disappointing. Food was overcooked and overpriced. The service was good and atmosphere as cozy as...More
