The scenery/decor are nice. The food is just o.k. For the price I'd rather eat at a nicer steakhouse/restaurant. Service was ok. Overall not what we expected for the amount of money we spent.

This place has some of the best steaks ever. Their baked potatoes are like a small football. The cheese bread is awsome. Love eating here. The service and atmosphere is excellent.

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