We just had the bourbon steak.... it was incredible !!!! It was juicy and tender with a bold bourbon flavor. Absolutely one of the best steaks I've ever had. Wayne was the cook and he cooked our steaks to perfection. Arlene was our server and she was friendly and provided excellent service. Will DEFINATELY be back.

This was our first time visiting Northwoods since they remodeled and was so surprised at how it had transformed from a "mom and pop" cafe to a really nice northwoods themed place. We were greeted by a friendly waitress who gave us plenty of time to decide what to eat for lunch, with so many good choices it was hard... More

Found this restaurant online. Excellent ribs and the Maple Bacon burger was the best burger we have ever had. They serve local brews and prices are good value. Just off 61, it is worth the short jaunt up the hill to silver bay. If you are up the shore this far try it out you won't be sorry!

I have only eaten breakfast at this restaurant, but I have eaten breakfast here about 5 times! The food is fantastic! They have a smoked salmon caprice omelet that I have gotten a few times for breakfast and it is amazing!

This restaurant is so cozy and the perfect spot to share a meal with friends. We came in after our snowshoe walk and were going to order to go since it was so close to closing time. Our server invited us to stay and dine in. She was friendly and fast. She had awesome recommendations and the food was excellent.... More

If you want a good burger, a good salad, good breakfast food, this is the place. The Maple Bacon Bourbon Burger is to die for. I usually can't get past that item on the menu except if I am there for breakfast, and their omelets are delicious!

The Northwoods' Family Grille served food far above my expectations. I had a GLUTEN FREE grilled cheese with a cup of chili and my mother ate a maple bacon bourbon burger with seasoned fries (both very tasty). I was very impressed with the gluten free options of bread and a bun. Also the chili was surprisingly gluten free. The atmosphere... More
