L. Woods Tap and Pine Lodge
L. Woods is classic LettuceL. Woods is classic Lettuce Entertain You. Excellent service is and always will be outstanding! Ribs were great!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday Dinner!Party of 5 -- The food was delicious. We shared a large chopped salad for the table. Entrees included ribs, veggie burger, skirt steak sandwich, and 2 orders of the almond-encrusted walleye (yum!). Our waiter, Evelio, was the best! He was helpful (we were going to order two salads, but he told us one large salad would be enough, and if not we could always get more), attentive without being intrusive, extremely friendly without being overly informal, and he definitely gets 5 stars for his service! He also brought a candle in a complimentary sundae for the birthday girl--with 5 spoons so we could share--AND he sang! We were all so stuffed from dinner that a few bites each of the sundae was the perfect dessert! Thanks, L. Woods--and Evelio!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingAs always, L Woods delivered again. Accomodating our large party, and changes at the last minute.
And the service & food was, as always, stellar. Bravo.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMONE OF OUR FAVORITE RESTAURANTS!!OUR FOOD WAS OUTSTANDING!! OUR SERVICE WAS JUST THE GREATEST!!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMEat dessertFood great, waitstaff great, ambiance great (it helped that we waited til the day after Mother's Day to celebrate Mother's Day and avoided the crowd). This restaurant knows how to do it right, with warmth and genuine interest. Save room for dessert (which is hard to do, after a meal of excellent filet mignon, creamed spinach and twice-baked potato), because the new strawberry rhubarb crisp is wonderful. A perfect Spring meal-ender.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, great foodI have yet to try anything at L.Woods that isn't delicious. The fried cheese curds are so good my head almost explodes when eating them. My husband loves the ribs and steaks. The service is always top notch.

excellent!!!! This time the service was exceptional.
Ordinarily, the service has been acceptable.
The restaurant tends to be a little noisier than I
prefer, but that's because it's a popular place.

Bravo and bravo!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA Memorable, Fantastic Lunch.I'm very happy that I was able to reserve a table at L. Woods through OpenTable.com long before the restaurant opened to receive phone reservations. The web site was very easy to use. When I got to L. Woods, they confirmed that our table was reserved, ready and waiting for us. I plan to use OpenTable.com again to make reservations in the future. The atmosphere, service and food was nothing less than stellar! I've been there before, but my friend had not been and she was very pleased with my choice of restaurant to have lunch. Our waiter was friendly, courteous, informative and fast and his service was worth a lot more than a standard tip. I had a bowl of delicious vegetable soup, a full slab of pork ribs, whipped potatoes and coffee.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food & serviceOur first trip to L Woods but I'd been hearing about it for some time. Great BBQ ribs! BBQ chicken was outstanding as well. Wife had BBQ plank salmon and said it was delicious. Dessert was outstanding. Setting is nice and comfortable, quick and courteous, friendly service. Had a drink at the bar first and enjoyed our time there, friendly conversations and good drinks.
Overall, L Woods is a highly recommended place for a nice dinner!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper Supper!From the minute you walk in the door you feel as if you have stepped back in time and into a different world. Or at least another state. The decor is pure north woods supper club with dim antler lights and old pictures. The food and service are both top notch. The portions are plentiful and amazingly tasty. Our table ordered drinks, appetizers, entrees and side dishes. Our glasses were never empty and the food was served hot, and plenty of it too! It is not a cheap place for sure, but certainly reasonable for the quality of food and excellent service. We are looking forward to our next visit back at L Woods!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTrip to WisconsinOutstanding! Just like having dinner in Wisconsin supper club. Great fish and chips, BBQ and the best lime key pie.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI went to L Woods for my husband'sI went to L Woods for my husband's birthday with our young children.

Keep up the good work!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BbExcellent cuisine and service. We used to drve in from Milwaukee when this was "Bones". They always had the best babyback ribs ever. L. Woods is pretty darn close. This time we tried the dry rub ribs. They were very very good, but for our liking a little on the dry side...but then they are dry rubbed. We also had the skirt steak which was fantastic. My wife and I split the two meals that made for a great combination. We also thought the baked potatoes were excellent. I know it's only a baked potato, but the taste and doneness was perfect. You won't go wrong here. Another treats as to see Simma there, seating and greeting people. Simma used to work at Bones, back in the day and it was nice to see her seemingly doing well.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome as always. One ofAwesome as always.
