We visit the Northwoods Inn whenever we can. Usually, my first choice for my birthday dinner. Love the food here. The salad is awesome, the cheese toast is to die for and the platters are all good.

We only had to wait for a few minutes. Some friends brought us here for dinner. I had the steak and crab! YUM!! As always the bread, and salads were amazing.

I lived near the original Northwoods Inn and frequently ate there until I left CA in 2000 for Texas. While back in CA last week, 8 of us dined at the Azusa location and it was nostalgic because nothing has changed (except prices). You still...More

I have been dining at Claremans restaurants since the early 1950's and the Northwoods Inn in Azusa and the one in La Mirada are both a real treat. The buildings look like a mountain lodge both inside and outside, and the food is delicious. They...More
