Diner Reviews
  • "Food was fair, service was slow and less than attentive. The restaurant has a gluten free menu, but the server was very uneducated on what gluten even is. A five minute explanation and a server would know a baked potato does not contain gluten. Clearly, management hasn't put in the effort to train staff on this dietary need, however has put the effort into marketing to the gluten free. I ordered the filet mignon, which was supposed to include sautéed mushrooms - no mushrooms, unappetizing less than stellar cut of meat seasoned only with salt and pepper. They shouldn't offer a GF menu if they can't make it work well for GF customers. For $27.99, thats pretty shameful."

  • "L. Woods always makes the experience very nice. We were seated quickly despite our group of 4 not all yet there (Chicago Rush Hours!) Our Waiter was incredible. Caesar Salad for 4 remains one of the best. Skirt steak was cooked to perfection."

  • "I returned in hopes of finding the steak salad I remembered so fondly. It was still on the menu and every bit as good as I recalled. I love the goldbrick sundae, a treat that I haven't found anywhere else. My companion was delighted with her burger and fries. We both appreciated the waiter. A pleasant and comfortable atmosphere."

  • "L. Woods has something for everyone. It is kid friendly, yet perfect for couples, the elderly, families, and larger groups or parties. The food is reasonably priced, of good quality, and most of all, delicious! It's in our neighborhood, and high on our list for evenings out."

  • "A unique place in the city. Once in the doors you feel as if you are at a lodge in Wisconsin or Michigan and you left the city. Reservations are necessary if you are dining on the week end. Items on the menu are reasonably priced. The briskets we had were soft and very tasty. The dessert cobbler was great."

  • "With good reviews we decided to try LWoods. Not so great my encrusted whitefish was mushie,the fried cod was so salty and flavorless,ribs were fair,no comparison to Carsons,salmon ok. The waiter was not great,very quick and uninviting to us...lets get u in and out! Had to constantly ask for more water,more bread,take ourplates. Not impressed with the qualityand service at all. Will not be back and will not recommend. Much better at Wildfire for similar cost.$$"

  • "We had to wait 20 minutes for our reservation. But the waiting didn't end there. Our server had a room full of tables that he couldn't handle. 20 minutes to get our drinks, 40 minutes for our food, and our water glasses remained empty. The food was the only bright spot. Lwoods you need to prepare better for dinner rushes!"

  • "We went to L. Woods for a team dinner after work. We were all very pleased with the food and with our waiter Jason. He was so friendly, super informative about the food, very nice personality and had the food out to us really quickly. Great waiter. The food was to die for. I ordered the BBQ salmon which was made perfectly. I loved the duchess potatoes abound it. 2 Co-workers ordered the sliced beef and both said the meat was so tender. Dessert was great! Can't complain about this place. We have done other work events at this place and have never been disappointed. Great Job!"

  • "My husband and I went there for lunch because we had to go to the North side to pick up something. We live in a Southwest suburb of Chicago. Our waiter asked if we had ever been there before and we said that it was a very long time ago (probably over 10 years ago). He treated us to a free appetizer and we had a nice relaxing lunch with a few beers and good food. We enjoyed the supper club atmosphere."

  • "THE SEATING HOSTESSES ARE ALWAYS NICE AND TAKE GOOD CARE OF SEATING ALL CUSTOMERS!! MY SERVER, BILLY, IS ALWAYS A GREAT SERVER!! HE TAKES GREAT CARE OF ME!! THE FOOD AT THIS RESTAURANT IS ALWAYS SO GREAT!! THIS IS A PERFECT RESTAURANT TO EAT AT!!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "L Woods has a nightly supper club offering that is always delicious, ranging from fried chicken to prime rib to brisket to pork tenderloin. But I also love their "traditional" menu items. Their flatbread pizza and a wedge salad more than suffice as a wonderful meal. They have a fabulous chocolate lava cake for dessert but order it as you order your entrée so it will be ready, and tell them you want it as a lava cake, not to let it bake that extra bit longer which would make it less gooey. They serve it with freshly whipped whip cream. Delicious for that special occasion!"

  • "THE SEATING HOSTESSES ARE VERY NICE AND FRIENDLY!! THEY ALWAYS TAKE GREAT CARE OF CUSTOMERS!! THE FOOD AT THIS RESTAURANT IS SENSATIONAL!! MY SERVER, BILLY, IS FABULOUS!!

  • "Used to love going there for the beef ribs. Went 8/2/14 and they were pathetic. They went from being bounteous tender fall-off-the-bone delicious to skinny,tough, and boring. Used to be the reason we went there, now won't go anymore."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Positive thing was the gluten free menu and great gluten free burger buns. Lettuce entertain you restaurants rarely disappoint. However, the veggies for the burger were obviously cut the day before, soggy pickle, soggy tomatoe, soggy lettuce(ironically). Server was up and down. Ehhhh... Not horrible but not great. Ambiance is ok. Like a restaurant on a rustic lake setting."

  • "Every time I make a reservation at this restaurant for a special occasion and remind the hostess, othe waiters never bring out a special dessert. It happened again this time. I brought a friend for her birthday, noting in reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and reminded hostess when I checked in. At the end of dinner, no special dessert. Hostess said she did inform the waitress but to no avail. Very annoying!"

  • "This is one of my favorite dinner restaurants. I've only lunched here twice, though. The mood is different during the day, catering heavily to the business crowd. Yes, the 90yr old matriarch of our family group took a good while to decide on her entrée, but that doesn't excuse having to ask twice for appetizers and bread, getting no refills on drinks, having no sugar available to us, and being largely ignored until I explained we were a little pressed for time and asked if the waiter could check the kitchen for our meals. (Yes, I DO know, sir, how long it takes to cook a hamburger 'medium', thank you. But, I also know food comes faster once the order has been placed with the chef.) The food was customarily great, but service was lacking"

  • "We have a new tradition of dining at L. Woods to celebrate the birthdays of my step-daughter and me. Our granddaughter loves it, too. She can order mac and cheese and french fries! The ribs, both port and beef, are the best. Had a great time, though the noise level was difficult."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "The hostess was distracted when two of us arrived slightly early. We were seated but it wasn't recorded. So when the second couple came, she said we hadn't arrived. We ended up going and fetching them. After we all ordered, the appetizers came quickly and properly made. We then waited 45 minutes for our entrees. They weren't worth the wait. Everyone was disappointed in their food: - buffalo wings were cold. ( The one gold star was the waitress - The waitress got a new order as soon as we said there was a problem), iffy tasting pike sandwich, chopped chicken, cranberry salad had very little chicken and dull dressing, skirt steak salad was nothing special"
