We have been coming here over 25 years and no complaints but today we ordered 3 prime rib plates two of them medium rare which were really rare so you could really smell and taste the rancid meat. My wife had a end cut so she couldnt smell it. But after four bites she smelled my daughters piece and stopped eating hers also since it was from the same rack. The waitresses were great as always but the Lady Owner treated us very rudely making us feel like scammers. I would never try to scam and had no problem to pay the bill & tip for the service was good. Its just the owner denied the bad meat but if she would have smelled our pieces it doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out its bad and should be thrown away so as not to get anybody sick. So if in the future you get your piece well done it might be to cover up the smell and taste of bad meat.

I went to this place on the recommendation of a friend who said the food was great. Maybe there was a change in management or something because a chaulk this up as being the second worst meal I have ever had in my life! I had the fish, my husband the prime rib, and my daughter had a $25 steak. All three meals were just terrible. I don't understand how anybody can like the tasteless food here. The service was not bad, but the food was just terrible. Even the baked potato was tasteless, and my daughter said the steak tasted like "water", in other words, like nothing. I would not recommend this place at all! The only good thing in the meal was the garlic bread. I give this place a big ZERO.

I"ve only been once with my husband on our date night. Great strong drinks. Really appreciated that! I had dirty martini's and my husband Southern comfort and coke. Service wasn't the best and this was during the week when it wasn't that crowded. I went there on recommendation from another couple for their steaks. I wasnt that impressed. I ordered a prime rib and my husband a rib eye. I just wasnt that impressed. To be honest...I went to Outback Steakhouse around Valentines day and had an amazing ribeye blackened. I know that sounds tacky but in all honesty when i think of a great steak The Backwoods In..is not the place i think of. I did like the comfortable environment. No dressing up necessary! I also loved their salad and blue cheese dressing. We also ordered the sauteed mushrooms which came in some weird coffee cup kind of thing. it was weird.

The Best Ribeye in town!!! And if you like a good cocktail this is the place to go. I have been going here for about 15 years and they have never let me down...

I just drove by here on Sunday and said to myself we have not been there for a long time. It has great food and great service. The only problem is the location it is a little of the beaten track, but I think we wil venture on over there it is worth it.

Great food, fun atmosphere, the Backwoods Inn reminds us of our roots here in Santa Clarita.. a wagon wheel stop where someone could get a BBQ meal on his way through town.

There are many steakhouses out there, but there aren't very many that stick to their theme from the time you walk in the door, to the time you leave. I took my mothere there for lunch (which is a review all in itself) and from the moment we walked in, we felt like we had stepped into a wild west saloon out of the late 1800's. The staff there is just as friendly as those pioneers from the period, and the food is right out of the period as well. Made to order with care and love and served with a smile.

Prices are moderate and definitely won't break the bank.

All in all, a wonderful experience for those meat lovers out there!

PROS: good food, good prices, wonderful atmosphere
CONS: It's off the beaten track just a little bit.

This steakhouse has been around for over 20 years. The decor never changes, and the food is STILL very tasty. They have the wonderful steaks and the BEST grilled salmon which comes in a very healthy portion.

Backwoods Inn has been a family favorite for over 20+ years. One's visit is always pleasant. The aroma as you enter immediately gets your tastebuds all primed for a wonderful dining experience. The menu offers enough of a variety that everyone finds something to their liking. The BBQ ribs and chicken is great also.\nThe well stocked bar has a capable and friendly mixologist. \nMy personal recommendation to you would be the bacon-wrapped filet mignon or the mouthwatering prime rib. \nThe salads are fresh,the soups are good. Their Garlic bread is a must. \nYou will leave satisfied and thinking about your next visit. Maybe I'll see you there soon. Enjoy!

The true test of any restaurant is its ability to withstand the test of time. Backwoods Inn continues to draw a consistent crowd despite the slew of new restaurants in the SCV.\n\nThe atmosphere is cozy and fun. Drinks are great. But the best thing about the place is the food. I go back and forth between the Petite Filet Mignon and the Teriyaki Top Sirloin. Both are fabulous. The stuffed potato is a treat and salad is consistently good. The dessert tray offers 6 or more choices and I'm almost always happy with what I choose.\n\nI will be enjoying Backwoods Inn for years to come and introducing it to as many people as I can. It's nice to see an independent restaurant thrive.

Love this place. The sawdust on the floor and antiques really set the mood. The food is great and inexpensive. The seafood platter is overwhelming. I go at least once a week.
