    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/5/2012
    We went to Woody's on Sunday with the intention of having brunch. Your website advertises a brunch from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. My idea (as well as at least five people I have asked since Sunday) of a brunch is a buffet with both breakfast and lunch items available. Your idea of a brunch is to offer a menu where a person can either order breakfast or lunch. It was quite the joke. You should update your website to say that you offer a "brunch menu" as it was explained by the waitress rather than give the impression that you actually offer what is typically thought of as a brunch. Needless to say, we will not be coming back to your restaurant. It was a total waste of our time.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/18/2012
    I thought that the food was pretty tasteful. Friendly service. The only things were that we were sat by the door going to the outside seating and every time the door was opened it was loud because they had a band playing out there. Also, when we ordered our entree our waitress asked us if we would like either soup or salad. We thought they came with our entrees but they didnt so we ended up paying a little bit more than we wanted because of that. Other than those things, everything was great!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 6/1/2012
    Not sure if it was just a bad night, but our food service last Friday was terrible. We had staggered our order so we could have an appetizer while we helped our young kids with their meals, and then receive and eat our adult entrees second after the hungry kids were finished. However, our appetizer and kids meals took more than 45 minutes to come out and then they brought out our entrees five minutes later. It was not clear whether they even understood how poorly timed it was. The food was good, but the experience was not enjoyable at all. I doubt we will be back soon.

    We had a business meeting with a client. We arrived at 12:30 and found a table in the corner to conduct business but it was quite noisy. One of the guests was a vegetarian and found the only appetizing or interesting food to order was a veggie burger. It could help Woodys to be a little more culturally and ethnically sensitive in regards to a vegetarian choice(s)

    My husband and I had salad followed by Woody's Gargonzola Chicken Pizza. It was great! We were disappointed with our waitress. It was not a busy night. We had several empty tables around us and only saw our waitress once. The bartender delivered our food and drinks and was very accommodating even when he had to leave his bar unattended. After taking our order the waitress didn't return to our table, we were never asked or served water which we would have liked with our meal. My husband had to go to the bar to get it. As we were leaving the waitress, delivered bother tables tab and showed those customers her ridiculous flashlight glasses. Wish we could have had the time she wasted showing off her flashlight to get some water with our meal.

    My wife and I came here for dinner and breakfast. The dinner was good but typical. Nothing that made us say, "wow! This was awesome!" The breakfast was also good, except for the pancakes. They were way too big and tasted like cake. Too fluffy for me. Overall, probably wouldn't go here again for how much they charge for food that's only ok.

    The food and atmosphere were great. The fireplace on a snowy night hit just the right note for my out of town guests. The service unfortunately, wasn't so great. Our drinks weren't refilled without asking. The service was generally slow. After dinner, two of us ordered coffee and when it finally came, we had to ask for cream and spoons to stir the coffee with. When the dessert arrived (we'd ordered 3 to split between five people), the waitress brought forks but no plates.

    We went for breakfast and were not dissappointed. Prices are reasonable and our server was friendly. What I don't understand is why they don't seem to pay attention to opentable reservations. Granted being seated was not a problem at all, but when I 'checked in' at the host stand, the woman didn't bother to even check, so my points don't come thru until days later.

    Food was very good. Service was poor, this seemed to be our waiter the other wait staff serviced their tables well. It took forever to place a drink order, then took almost 15 minutes to have the waite bring the glass of beer and glass of wine. Took forever to receive our food order, when it came we each had one piece of bread, looking at other tables they all had a bread basket. We would have requested additional bread but the only time we saw our waiter after the meal was served was to bring our bill.
