Northwood has been dependable for years. Deciding between walleye and perch is the hardest decision one faces. Don’t count on good wine, but the selection of beers is very good, served perfectly.

The decision was easy because they featured a combo special of perch and walleye. Predictably excellent.

Service is normally good, but we got a young girl on her first night, and she was truly lost. Nice, trying, but in serious need of training. Management failed the server and customers that night.

Dr. Scott says: Go with confidence for good family dining and fresh fish.

Enjoyed a relaxing dinner with family after a busy working day. The spaghetti was delicious and my husband declared the ribs the best he has had in a long time. Looking forward to visiting again soon. Added to my saved places.

Stopped in again at Northwoods while in the area. Very friendly staff and the food has been good each trip. We tried to get into the bar area but it was packed. The fish is very good and the portions large. We were so full when leaving and our bill was $29 for the two of us. I would definitely recommend.
To the owner- I'm not a big fan of your coleslaw. Its a vinegar based cole slaw and just isn't that good. Thats just my own taste though.

Have stopped in at Northwoods twice in the last two weeks while in the area. The food I have ordered has always been very good. The servers are very friendly and attentive. The restaurant could use a bit of sprucing up but not terrible. Just starting to show some age. I would recommend.

The food at Northwood's is very good, and service is very friendly. Pricing won't break the bank, and this restaurant never disappoints for good steak and seafood. reasonable
