Diner Reviews
  • "We dine here often and w/an out of towner in it was a perfect place to meet. Server was friendly and present without being pushy, really knew the menu. Food served promptly, and as requested. Very pleasant experience."

  • "One of our favorite restaurants. L. Woods always has great food and service that Lettuce Entertain You restaurants are known for."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Great Service and Wonderful Food! The food never disapoints, this time I tried the Sunday fried chicken which was superb! Some of the signature items that I love there are the Fried Onions and Baby Back Ribs. The portion size is a really good size, big enough for sharing, and if you order appetizers or plan on having their wonderful Apple Streudel for dessert then you will have plenty of food. I highly recommend the Apple Streudel, it is soooo good! Just remember that it takes 45 minutes for Streudel so order it when you first get there! If you remember the old Kenilworth restaurant you will find L-Woods to be very nostalgic!"

  • "We went for the prime rib that was just ok- definitely not bad but a bit chewy and not the melt-in-you-mouth you look for in a prime rib. The taste was very good. The service felt very rushed I had to ask the waiter to repeat everything be use he was speaking so fast and not that thoughtful. Not sure I would go back."

  • "Usually a great experience and food was wonderful as always, but our server (forgot her name) was a bit moody that day. Kind of put out because we took a bit more time to settle in and order. We didn't get our bread (actually we didn't notice till almost done with the meal so too late, but it should've been there earlier regardless). We had mentioned we might want dessert, but she gave us our check before confirming yes or no (we thought she wanted us out of there or something - not sure). We did order dessert so she had to redo the bill."

  • "very busy however using open table we got in right away food was pretty good service not so great though everyone there is very nice prefer sitting in the back room area than the bar or 1st dining area"

  • "L Woods Tap is one of my favorite restaurants, and before changing its name from Bones … this was my family's favorite restaurant. I'll bet because I have lived in the general neighborhood that I have been to L Woods 300 to 400 times in my lifetime. It always feels like home to me, and the food and service is always top notch."

  • "The lunch menu is quite extensive and there are a lot of different options (burgers, sandwiches, salads, steak, chicken, bbq, daily specials, flatbreads, etc.) so that anyone could find something to eat that they will enjoy! The kids menu is great and even has a delicious steak on it for only 11.99 with a potato and applesauce! The little 6-year old steak lover enjoyed it very much, cooked just right- medium rare! The kids burger was thoroughly enjoyed by the "hamurmer" lover. Sandwiches- pulled pork, steak, veggie burger- were good and our fried walleye chip appetizer was delicious as always! Super nice and efficient server made it an all-around great lunch experience."

  • "Love the walleye fingers. Great north woods type menu. Service on it."

  • "The food and service were great. We made a reservation and did not have to wait long before we were seated. Only disappointing thing was a lot of food was out of stock like fried chicken, ribs, and other specials."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "The fried chicken they do on Sundays is fantastic! They also make a really good Bloody Mary. Be forewarned though, you need to make a reservation for this place as it is always packed. And no quick meal schedules! We have been here a few times and normally the kitchen is not so slow. This time the meal took a super long time to arrive (over 45 minutes) but the waitress was very attentive and we weren't in a hurry so just had an extra cocktail."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "It was our first time at L. Woods and they sent us a free flatbread to welcome us. It was very tasty! I had the special of the day which was the fried chicken. It was awesome! My husband ordered the steak sandwich which he said was great! We will be back real soon!"

  • "We had written on open table my husband and I and our 3 kids were celebrating my husbNds birthday. I reminded the hostess of his birthday. Our service was slow unattentive. Waiting 6 to 10 minutes for a simple request eg. Olive oil for the bread is not acceptable in my dining book! The server never came back to see how things were and if anything is needed. And to top it all off not a word was spoken to celebrate his birthday. The service overshadowed the food in a negative way no desire to ever go back."

  • "My wife love the LEYE restaurants and this one is right around the corner from our home. We always love the attention to detail given from the host side, but our service was a bit slow this go around. The food is always hot and prepared great for the price, honestly the best quality in the Lincolnwood/Rogers Park area for casual scratch-made food."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "My experience was generally good and been so consistently over the years. Reservations are honored, staff is helpful, and the food is good. The only issue that came up was over-cooked and over-sweetened carrots that came with my turkey dinner. They were quickly replaced with another vegetable that was more to my liking. The food is American meat and potatoes with some good fish. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone who enjoys a good stick-to-your-ribs meal and professional service."

  • "Great burger and steak house in northweest area; don't have to go downtown for a great meal! Great for lunch, events and special occasions. Ambiance is always great."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "As always, hubby loved his steak! Drinks done to perfection! Consistent high quality food and service. No beef ribs available, though, which was disappointing. According to waitress, they haven't been up to their quality standards lately. We appreciate that L Woods would rather disappoint by not having the ribs than by serving poor quality ribs."

  • "I have dined here before. Thursday is pot roast special. It was very tender & flavorful. If you like potroast, but don't want to go to the bother of cooking it. This is the place to go. Their chopped salad is excellent. The servers are happy to put ingredients on the side if a member of your dining group doesn't like them. The portions are big. A small will feed 3 or 4."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Great ambiance, like a northwoods supper club, we had a great waiter who walked us through the menu since it was our first time at this restaurant. We had to ask several times for more bread and our waiter, while good, seemed to have a lot of tables and we didn't see him much. Also, there was a speaker right over our booth and the music was VERY loud, really too loud even for this energetic of a restaurant. Food was terrific, and plentiful. Really enjoyed this restaurant."

  • "We came in for my husband's birthday and loved the place! The waiter was attentive but not annoying. The food was fresh and clearly prepared to order. We loved the variety on the menu and the energy of the dining room."

  • "1st time at L. Woods. Fish is fresh! Interesting walleye small breaded bits with homemade potato chips. Good homemade tartar and cocktail sauce with horseradish. Excellent Schlitz batter haddock, although smaller than expected pieces. Great flavor. Perch is fresh and breaded. Baked fish options available. More fish options on Fridays. Potato pancakes are tasty, but could be lighter. Homemade coleslaw. Weakest link: Elvis dessert. Interesting patrons...One couple drove from north of Milwaukee to come here. We asked if this is better than Wisconsin Fish fry. If Wisconsin residents come here on a Friday, it must be pretty good! People appeared happy to be at L. Woods. Attentive waitress and staff. Worth drive from Chicago."
