Five of us stopped here on the way to Petoskey on a Sunday afternoon. Took a while to get seated, but once there the service was exemplary. I had the patty melt, which was very tasty. My brother-in-law ordered the spaghetti, asking that the cheese be left off. It was served with the cheese, which he cannot eat. The waitress... More

I've heard this restaurant has good liver and onions but had to try for myself to believe it. It was delicious, not over cooked, and served with bacon and onions. The meal, which included salad, potatoes and vegetables, was enough for two people. Amazing! And the price was so reasonable. The blue cheese dressing is made in-house so it's very... More

Went Tuesday night for dinner. My wife had the New York strip. She barely needed a knife. I had the chicken. Had to peek in the kitchen to make sure Gramma wasn't cooking.

My husband and I and our two girls searched and searched to find a place to have dinner on a Monday night on our vacation. Every place we found was either closed on Monday nights or it was permanently closed. We could find nothing but fast food. We happened to drive past the Northwoods Restaurant when the girls shouted, "That... More

I was hoping for a good, juicy, flavorful burger and I found it at Northwoods. A real multi napkin delight.

This is our "go to" place when we visit the area of Burt Lake. Open on Monday is another plus!! We usually eat in the bar, but the dining room is popular also!! Northwoods has a large menu-from burgers to dinners-something for everyone at reasonable prices!

Stopped in on a whim after an afternoon of boating on crooked lake. A pleasant surprise! Excellent service and great food. The prices were VERY reasonable compared to most of the restaurants in the little traverse area. I believe it's worth the trip.
