Did not expect to find a steakhouse of this quality in the little town of East Tawas - this restaurant is the kind you would expect to find in Petoskey or Harbor Springs. Tucked behind a Big Boy, Northwoods Steak House has delicious food. The steaks are excellent and the wine list, although small, has some great higher-end selections (which... More

Wow. What a complete and total surprise to find a high-end restaurant in East Tawas. Being adjacent to the Big Boy, we were expecting a disappointment, and were we ever wrong. The food is excellent, the service is excellent, and the selection is the best of all. Dale was our waiter. He did a really good job and made great... More

Had a dinner here one night with a small group. The décor is well done and inviting. Especially loved the chicken and dumpling soup for the appetizer. Entrees were excellent all around the table. Although I am not a fan, they said the stuffed mushroom was amazing!

The appetizers were good, the main course was great. Dinner comes with soup, salad & a wide choice of potatoes. I had the ahi tuna & it was done to perfection. My partner had the steak & shrimp, also done right. The wine list is extensive & moderate in price.

Great Steak House, a definite hidden gem in this area. Our meal was excellent, although a little pricey for the area. Would recommend the prime rib, and the demonico steak..both very flavorful.

Chose Northwoods Steak House to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and was not disappointed! The atmosphere is great, the service was excellent and the prime rib was spectacular! Worth the trip and the price! Have eaten there before, but will definitely be back again!!

Upon trip-advisor recommendations, four of us enjoyed a mid-week dinner here. My husband's filet was perfectly cooked, melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Our friends enjoyed the walleye- also very good. I loved the lobster bisque. The house salad was just delicious. Our server, Chris, was attentive and accurate in his explanations of various items on the menu. The atmosphere here is quiet, comfortable-... More

Beautiful dining room, but the sauteed whitefish I ordered and my husband's meal likewise were sub-par. Just not good flavor.
