A word from Ruddick/Wood
Ruddick/Wood is a casual restaurant and tavern serving locally focused, seasonal, new-American fare alongside craft beer, wine and cocktails in a renovated 1920s garage in downtown Newberg, Oregon. Ruddick/Wood has been built around the idea of country kitchens, roadhouses, saloons and way-points; and reflects our love of local food and drink, as well as our desire to create a place that is part of the community fabric.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We recently ate at Ruddick/wood and had an outstanding meal. Everything we tried was well prepared, especially the roasted beet salad. My only concerns were pacing. The restaurant was not busy and there were long pauses between courses. And there didn't seem to be enough air conditioning. It was verging on too warm in the restaurant. These two items not withstanding, I will definitely be heading back."

  • "We ate at 5 of the Valley's best restaurants, and I think we thought this was the best; certainly the best value."

  • "We had brunch at Ruddick/Wood. The menu was limited, and the food just wasn't that good. One member of our group had the lamb sandwich and said it just had no taste. It was nothing special. Two people had the chicken and biscuits and felt they were alright but that they had definitely had better. Overall, we were disappointed. However, the service was great."

  • "The ambience and attitude at R/W is terrific. The menu is perfect for the spot and the food was very good for the price even if there was a bit of slippage in execution (e.g, soggy French fries). All in all a great addition to the Newberg scene and we will return when in town. Excellent and well priced wine list."

  • "This was a good place to go for a solo dinner. I had two appetizers and a side dish instead of the entrees, partly because there was a great list of things to choose from on the appetizer side, and I didn't want just one! I had the deviled eggs, charcuterie platter, greens and apple bread pudding. The food was all excellent - and it's hard to make braised greens that are excellent! They had a nice selection of wines by the glass, mostly local. Service was unobtrusive. I gave it a four instead of a five because a five star experience should be outstanding. This was excellent - not in my top ten all-time greats, but probably in my top fifty - and I eat in a lot of restaurants."

  • "I'm not a fan of uncooked steak, and that usually results in loss of flavor, dry meat, or overcooked taste and texture. That was not the case here. The cooks at R/W did an amazing job and it was the best rib eye well done I've ever had! The restaurant itself it's very nice and has a great look to it. It's easy to spend a long time there! A bit pricey, but that just makes it a great spot for special occasions."

  • "My husband and I just found this wonderful restaurant. The food is amazing!!! You know that it is good organic, well prepared food. If you sit and the kitchen seats you can see right into the kitchen and watch your food being prepared. You can feel that they care about the food they are making which I really appreciate since I am eating it! Great restaurant! "

  • "The service was excellent, and the food was sooo delicious. I had the shaved asparagus salad special and the salmon with the nettle broth, and it was cooked perfectly. I am very particular about my salmon, and I would order that again in a heartbeat. I love this place!"

  • "Was excited to try this place, but didn't enjoy it. It was extremely warm inside (no a/c) and very loud which made it difficult to hear our tables conversation. The waitress made us feel pressured to order quickly, eat and leave. Not a relaxing experience for a Friday night. I will say their IPA beer was fantastic. I would return as a place just to meet friends for a beer, but will sit in the tavern section next time."

  • "Great dinner at Ruddick Wood. This was our second visit to the restaurant and both visits were wonderful. Cocktails are unique. The Charcuterie plate is amazing and we had it on both visits. The wine list is diverse and reasonably priced. So great to see affordable, local wines in the wine country! Our entrees were all perfect; duck breast, chicken, lamb and ling cod. This is a great addition to Newberg. You will not be disappointed!"

  • "We decided to try this restaurant about a week ago and boy are we glad we did! Everything we ordered was excellent and the service was quick, professional and very friendly. This will become one of our go-to spots for a good meal ;)"

  • "Mothers Day Brunch was amazing. Our table was ready when we walked in the door. We had a great time and felt pampered...the waitresses are so friendly and helpful! The Duck Confit melted in your mouth. I could eat the spicy sauce on the eggs benedict on anything.My new go to spot!"

  • "We were a bit disappointed to be honest. The service was friendly, but slow as ever. It took over an hour to get our food and our orders were relatively simple. The food was pretty mediocre. The pickles were so saturated in vinegar that your sinuses could have exploded. The flatbread was dry and overcooked. We had high hopes for the cute simplicity of a nicer tavern environment in Newberg, but I wouldn't come back here."

  • "Our waitress was snooty and the menu needs more options. It took too long to get the little food we had. We had been in the bar and liked it, but the restaurant was a let down. You didn't even have diet soda?"

  • "We've been wanting to try this newly opened place for a while and finally got by for lunch. It was early, maybe 11:45, so the place was deserted except for one other table of 4, so it seemed a little empty. The service was very casual and barely attentive, not refilling coffee even once at the end of our meal. That said, the food was excellent. The burger my husband ordered was cooked perfectly to his order and delicious, high quality beef. My grilled goat cheese and squash flatbread sandwich was very tasty and the side salads we both had were carefully dressed and a great blend of very fresh bitter greens -- perfect accompaniments to our sandwiches. We will be back to try this place again and hope that the service aspect will be improved."

  • "The food was top rate and tasted very fresh. Prepared in a manner to highlight the natural flavors while adding a NW flare. There house pickled vegetables are incredible. I would go back even if they were the only thing on the menu!"

  • "Went for lunch and took longer than we had hoped. With a little improvement in that area for the lunch crowd it will be a great place to go for a g all round experience and excellent meal."

  • "My husband & I enjoyed a lovely meal that was delicious, generously proportioned, and a steal! The quality of the food & the hospitality of the staff definitely enriched our Easter holiday together! It was also lovely to unexpectedly see so many of our friends dining there. Nice to have such a locally focused restaurant in our 'hood!"
