A word from Woodside Lodge
The Woodside Lodge is located on the back side of Spring Mountain. It was built in the early 1920's and is the last standing Inn among several that catered to that periods travelers who came by train to Schwenksville to escape Philadelphia 's summer heat. Our vision is to restore the Woodside Lodge
to the wonderful meeting place that so many travelers and locals remember. Our Menu is Upscale American Comfort Food. We have Soups, Salads, Starters, Light Fare (Sandwiches), and delicious Entrees ranging from 14.99 to $26.00 that include House Salad, Bread Basket, Chef's Choice of Vegetable and Choice of Buttermilk Whipped Potatoes or Chef Michael's Famous Vermont Cheddar Stuffed Potato Cake!

We met another couple for dinner
and had a great time dining out on the open porch. The atmosphere was great although the road next to us was a little noisy but it didn't ruin the night (maybe putting up a few hedge/bushes) would soften the sound. Great place, will be back!"

This was my first visit to the
lodge. The menu was quite diverse and offered something to accommodate anyone's tastes. The food was very good but a bit overpriced for the atmosphere. I was a bit disappointed by the atmosphere in the room where we dined..it was dark and more pub-like. We had a great server; she was busy, but still very attentive and friendly. I would go back but the atmosphere is the only thing that doesn't add to the overall experience."

Woodside Lodge is an enjoyable
place to dine. Good food and friendly service."

The overall experience was quite
good. My only compliant would be the noise level in the dining room to the right of the entrance."

specials! Will definitely be back!"

Have been for Brunch and Dinner.
Food has never dissapointed. Staff is warm and friendly. Half price hamburger night on Wednesday is a blast."

The setting is lovely and the
restaurant itself is nice. Great front porch. The seating inside was OK. Two of us sunk deep on the bench and ended up sitting on our legs. The food was adequate. The service was slow even though the place was only about half full. The waiter was rather inattentive, too. We had to flag him down to get refills on drinks, even though he swung through the area a couple of times. We learned that waiting our turn didn't work; he'd just leave. The busboy, on the other hand, was efficient, polite and friendly. We had really hoped this could become a regular place for us because of the location but the mediocre food and disappointing service means we won't be back."

Wonderful selection and food! The
soups are wonderful along with all their food. We have eaten there many times and have always had a delicious meal."

I loved the Lobster Ravioli; my
husband enjoyed his roast beef sandwich; wait staff were all friendly & attentive; would definately recommend it & plan to return!"

Our recent dinner at the Woodside
Lodge was very nicely done. In the past, the food was very good but the service was a little amateurish. Now the service is every bit as good as the food."

I started with the French onion
soup, and we thrilled with the flavor and cheese! We had the crispy risotto balls which were fabulous! We enjoyed the cider brined roast pork tenderloin and the braised brisket with bourbon and cranberry glaze. Everything was just wonderful, and we also got to tour the rooms of the lodge which was beautifully appointed and looks very comfortable and inviting. The inn is a quaint and very well decorated venue for events, which we hope to use in the not-so-distant future. It is amazing that this little oasis is just 10 minutes from our home. We love it here!"

Got seated promptly at a large
comfortable table. Dining room was crowded but the room absorbed the noise well so my wife and I were able to have a fairly quiet ,pleasant evening. Our waitress was very nice, attentive and knowledgeable. The pumpkin soup special was delicious. Both our mains were very good. My wife wanted to give a big thumbs up to the lobster ravioli. An important thing to me was the meal was paced perfectly. Each course was brought out right when it should have been. Even though business was brisk we were never rushed. A very nice menu and we are both looking forward to trying some of their other offerings. Our first visit but definitely not our last."

Enjoyed the quiet atmosphere of
the dining room . The Soup of the Day was delicious. Our waitress was courteous and friendly. She made us feel right at home, knowing it was our first visit to the restaurant. We will definitely return."

My husband and I dined at the
Woodside this past weekend. I was impressed that there was a restaurant so close to our home that was this good. The atmosphere was simple but cozy. The service was very good,. The food was better than we expected. I had the French onion soup and my husband had the New England clam chowder both were delish. We were not rushed at all which is very important to us. I had the lobster ravioli which was good, my husband the Ny strip that was excellent for not being a steak house. All and all we would recommend, and I already did to my best friend!"

Valentine's Day was the first time
my husband and I ate at Woodside Lodge. I had driven by on a daily basis while the construction was being done prior to the opening of the restaurant, and I had mentioned to my husband that I wanted to eat there after it opened. We were very impressed with the food, the wait staff was friendly and attentive (although our waiter forgot my husband's beer). Our table was a little lop-sided (it moved every time we cut our food, which was a little annoying), but overall it was an enjoyable evening and I would recommend The Woodside Lodge to friends and family."

My husband and I made a last
minute Valentine's Day dinner reservation at the Woodside Lodge. We had passed it several times before but just never seemed to stop. What a great surprise. The staff was welcoming and the decor was comfortable. We were seated by the fireplace. We went with the price fixed menu. It was a great selection and a great deal. We also ordered one of their soups which was delicious. We had a wonderful evening and a great meal. We look forward to returning."

Good taste was really good but
wasn't really hot. Bench seats need to be firmer!! Too soft.. Ended up sitting almost table level ... Overall experience was really good ... Definitely will go again!!"
Dined on 1/25/2014
Went there for a quick bite to
eat. Service was good waiter very friendly and informative , food selection a bit limited but well prepared and hot when served. The wine list could use some improvement. A bit noisy area rug would help quiet the room. Over all a nice spot to relax in a casual atmosphere."

I was looking for a new place to
try in the area when I came across the Woodside Lodge. My fiance said that she had eaten there in the past, but not in several years, she wanted to go back. Being that it was New Year's Eve they had a preset, fixed priced menu. All 4 courses were delicious and well matched. The entree choices were typical and we both had the surf and turf - Outstanding!! I overheard a few other people commenting that their food was delicious also (not sure what their entree was). I would have given a 5 star rating, however being that it was my 1st time there I had no other experiences there to compare to. Will I go back - definitely. Will I try other foods - definitely. Will I recommend Woodside to a friend - already have."

I took my wife here for her
birthday. We drove by it many times and loved how it was restored. The experience exceeded our expectations. The food was excellent, the staff was great and it was very nice inside. We will definitely go back again!"
Dined on 12/7/2013
We decided to give Woodside
another try after having serious service problems soon after it opened. We were delighted with our experience this time and will be back often. The service was wonderfully attentive and the pace of our dinner was not rushed. The food was excellent, well prepared, and there is a good selection on the menu. Highly recommended!!"
Dined on 11/2/2013
My wife and I are new to the area
and we've been trying out local restaurants looking for places to take friends and family when they come to visit. I can say without a doubt Woodside will not be making that list. We asked the waitress what she recomended and she basically reread the whole menu for us which probably should have tipped us off. I had the "slow roasted" brisket of beef which tasted like it had been heated in a microwave and was maybe the smallest portion size I've been served as an entree at a restaurant. My wife had the veal oscar which came out luke warm. If I have bad service and a good meal I usually give a place a second chance, but going 0 for 2 means I won't be back."
Dined on 10/25/2013
we have been here three times and
have not had a bad meal. The food is always hot and plentifully. The staff is pleasant and helpful. It was my mother in laws birthday and they made her feel special. She even made their Facebook page. Definitely a need to try place. The mist important thing the food is not over priced. Excellent atmospher."

It was a beautiful drive to the
restaurant taking the back roads. The hostess was very nice as well as the waiter. We are looking forward to going back!"

Totally enjoyed. Staff very
friendly, accommodating and attentive. Food exceptional. Had an enjoyable meal including talking about the paintings on the walls, especially the one that happened to be painted by a staff member."

First time since it's been
completely redone, sat out on the porch, we'll be back."

My family and I love your
restaurant, this is the third time we've eaten at your establishment. My husband and I have enjoyed a couple date nights there. My favorite thing about your restaurant is the out side porch, because we love eating outside when the weather is nice!!! Last but definitely not least, the food has always been great!! It's great having a good restaurant near by!"
Dined on 8/14/2013
Food was good and the service was
great. I would recommend as a nice place to meet friends and family for a good time. The place looks great with a nice atmosphere."

We love this little gem, just up
from the Perkiomen in the woods. Food is great and service is always very positive and friendly. No hesitation in recommending it. With different dining areas there is room for intimate, groups and families... even a spacious outside porch..... We enjoy eating here... and you can even stay overnight."

Wonderful, renovated restaurant
with charm and country feel. Nice outdoor deck, beautiful new bar area and scenic dining room towards back of restaurant. Very good service and friendly, helpful staff! Nice menu with entrees and sandwiches! Couldn't ask for more. Think this will be our favorite new spot! Can't wait to return with friends!"
Dined on 7/20/2013
Woodside Lodge can be any dining
experience you chose. Sit on the porch and enjoy the scenery, socialize at the bar or have a more romantic dinner in the upscale indoor dining. The help is always friendly, attentive and nice to talk to. The Wednesday night burger deals along with happy hour can't be beat in both quality of food and price. It's a fun place to have an excellent meal."
Dined on 7/17/2013
Food was great, service not too
good. Never got rolls and butter with entrees. We were greeted by the host and hostess. Were told our reservation was for indoors (we requested outdoors on Open Table rez). The hostess said they can't do a specific request like that with OT. She said they are charged a fee for using OT and we should call directly in the future. Imagine my surprise the next day when I got an email from OT stating the Woodside Lodge had cancelled our reservation. AFTER WE DINED THERE, EATING A FULL MEAL. I called the restaurant twice to rectify the situation and my calls were never returned. Thankfully OT gave me the points I should have gotten when I let them know about the situation."
Dined on 7/13/2013
Very glad we went. Service wasn't
the best but it won't stop us from going back."

A nicely remodeled local gem. Food

We had a great Mother's Day
Brunch. Good selection of food, great tasting. They did not pack more tables in like a lot of places do for Holidays. Will go back for regular dinners."
Dined on 5/12/2013
Seated right away. Waitress
greeted us promptly and asked for drink orders. Drinks arrived quickly and she told us to head up to buffet and hurried off. As she was walking away, asked her if they were making omelettes, which I knew they were because was posted on line. She never mentioned them at all. The omelette ended up being very good. The buffet food was good, not great. She checked on us again and did ask if we would like anymore drinks, which we did since all of our glasses were empty. By the end of the brunch, we had plates stacked high and empty glasses that she never removed. The bill was presented as we were still eating. I would like to go back for the outdoor seating, but was not overwhelmed with this experience."

Our server, John, was so terrific.
He was kind and made our experience so nice. As always we will be returning."

We were very surprised at the
quality of food and ambiance of the Woodside Lodge. I don't think the pictures on the website do the place credit. The food was very good. I ordered the salmon with mashed sweet potato, and my meal was excellent. The kitchen was a little slow, but the service was great. The staff were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We will go back."
