Come to the BackWoods Inn for good comfort food. The restaurant may appear a bit 'funky' but give it a chance. The food is very tasty with a good selection from which to choose. Depending on the evening the service may be a bit slower...More

We had a lovely time during our first visit to the Backwoods Inn. There's no secret here... this place is all about the ambiance. It is fantastic! It is difficult to even begin to describe it's eclectic feel. Elements of victorian, colonial and the country...More

This restaraunt claims to serve the "Best Steak in Santa Clarita." Our steaks were over cooked twice!!! The quality of the meat did not match the price! The decor is outdated and not very appealing. Won't be coming back.

Rustic saw dust on the floor place. Prices are reasonable and the food hits the mark. Filets and baked potato are top notch. Surprised that the chicken was also really delicious.

We recently returned here after a couple of years. In the past the food was up and down, sometimes good other times no so good. This time it was very good. We arrived early, 5pm on a weekday and it was empty. Had our choice...More
