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.

I must say, I was silly, I tried the Ahi Tuna after being promised it was fresh and very good. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great like I'm used to. I did try a friends Perch and it was fabulous! Some other guys had steaks they liked as well (I didn't sample them). So order correctly and you won't... More

Hidden behind the Big Boy restaurant it this great restaurant. Extensive food and wine menu. Our group had steaks (NY strip, filet mignon) and lamb chops. The lamb chops were a very generous serving. Steaks were great- we all had bleu cheese on top. Our meal started with warm dinner rolls, we had salads and fantastic potatoes as sides. The... More

What a gem right next to the Big Boy! Amazing choices and the food was FABULOUS! We went twice the week we were there! Escargot was amazing! Staff was knowledgeable and friendly! We were surprised to find this place on a Sunday night when much else was open and how lucky we were! Come and enjoy a terrific meal! :)
