Advised to get there quick as they close at 7pm... Arrived, the place is run down and shabby. The people where very nice. The food was absolute crap and my husbands... More

We tried all of the local breakfast eateries in Wells and Barkerville. While none of them were substandard, except for some watered down coffee in one establishment, the Northwoods Restaurant was best. Linda, Bob, Karen and Amanda all made us feel welcome and, even better, part of their family. Their breakfasts were tasty and more than enough to keep us... More

My wife and I had breakfast here. It was average, thought the hash browns were underdone and cold. This restaurant is like stepping back to the 70s. Inside it is colourful (though the flowers are fake). The exterior could use some work to make it more inviting

The ladies washroom was fine, nothing fancy but clean and functional. I had breakfast there the next day and ordered off the menu. Bacon and... More

Only place to eat during winter. That being said I wouldn't rely on the advertised hours. If going to Wells during off season bring your own food. Breakfast was great at this place. Coffee was amazing. The owners were friendly !

Ate dinner here as it was the only place open. Ordered a burger which was very tasty. Yes, the decor is very dated but the food and service were good.

Had a pork chop dinner... It was great! Generous portions and nicely presented. The service was great and although they were only offering the buffet, when we asked, they allowed us to order off the menu.... Awesome!
