Diner Reviews
  • "Food is great; we just happened to get seated right next to a very loud foursome, kind of squeezed in by a wait station too."

  • "Initially, I go to support SDN, and always end up having the best experience! Staff is so attentive, food is absolutely amazing! Had brisket nachos-OMG!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014

  • "I usually love coming to this place and my last trip was a group outing with the family. My dad got into an argument with one of the bartenders about a certain wine and then was offered cooking wine. Food was great as usual (bit overcooked filet mignons)."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "L Woods is always a treat. The food is tasty, although the walleye had more bones than usual this visit. The service was also not quite up to the usual standard. We had to request and then wait for beverage refills."

  • "LOVED THE FOOD AS USUAL..... DID NOT CARE FOR OUR WAITER... FELT RUSHED EVEN BEFORE WE ORDERED... HAVE BEEN A DINER FOR A LIFETIME...(BONES) I WOULD NOT WANT THAT WAITER AGAIN... HE WAS ALMOST RUDE... NOT PLEASANT.... NOT ACCOMADATING... JUST WANTED US TO ORDER EAT AND LEAVE.... THAT IS NOT WHY WE MEET AT L WOOD...

    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Daily created specials are always worthwhile and often not on the online menu. Smoked brisket - sandwich. Tasty. A lot of sauteed mushroom, some cheese curd, and a small amount of brisket. Whitefish is fresh, but has small bones. The fresh walleye has more fish substance. Walleye chips and walleye is always terrific. Northwoods feel. Corn off the cob is a great non potato side. Creamed spinach - good. Desserts are a revelation. A recent blueberry buckle was incredible. The current blueberry pie has fresh blueberries, but pales in comparison to the recent buckle. Fresh lemonade good, but has sugar. Attentive waitstaff. Supperclub feel is great. You can imagine that this is a Wisconsin supper club."

  • "I have enjoyed L. Woods on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed in the quality of service, food, beverage, menu choices or prices. I love using Opentable.com to conveniently make reservations and L. Woods has always graciously accommodated any special requests I have made. I usually order their full slab of ribs, but I know that my meal companions appreciate the large selection and variety of menu items to choose from. My latest visit to L. Woods was the second time I had lunch there with a friend visiting me from Texas and, after her first experience, she was eager to dine there again. No matter how busy they are, the service and quality of the meal are nothing less than stellar! Small wonder that they are so popular."

  • "Got seated in the bar and we were there 15 minutes after they opened so its not like they didn't have room in the dining room. The bar area smelled like an outhouse. They need to use some lemon pledge on their woodwork. Ordered French onion soup and the bread in it was burnt. Ordered a chicken sandwich with cheddar and bacon and the cheddar was like cheese wiz and the bacon was burnt. I thought this was a quality restaurant. Very disappointed for the price I paid."

  • "The pricing helps this restaurant make sense. The dessert (order when ordering your meal) was excellent. We were trying to enjoy our salad but our entree's came out as we started eating the salad. They offered to take our meal back to the kitchen but that didn't make much sense. The bummer was salad didn't get eaten at restaurant and not many leftover items are worse than left over salad."
