Very good overall experience. Was sticker-shocked at the final check (alcohol is outrageous) and the 3% surcharge doesn’t help. Would return to restaurant very seldom given the high pricing.

Had the beef brisket sandwich. Very tender.
Went at an "off time" so it was not crowded. Happy they checked for Vax proof & ID.

I've had better service at L. Woods. Fried calamari was excellent as usual. Shrimp DeJonghe was, to me, just okay and not that much shrimp for the price. Other diners had Strip Steak and Fish & Fries which were fantastic. Felt pretty expensive for casual dining.

Our server, Cecilia, was so personable and friendly! She timed everything out perfectly so we could have a relaxing dinner at the perfect pace. She was a great reminder of how customer service used to be and sparks hope that we’ll get back there again.

First time here and It did not disappoint, ribs were great, walleye was great, the scalloped potatoes were great and we started with the cheese curds and that’s a must, had a Schlitz beer that brought back memories.

Every dish and side we ordered was delicious as was the cocktail! Fun environment too. Ribs, brisket sandwich, cheese curds, Mac n cheese (might have been the best I've ever had), augratin potatoes, salted caramel bread pudding (OMG!)...a fantastic meal overall. The gin citrus old fashioned - so good!

Our server, Stephanie, made the night! She was excellent, taking great care of us, providing good advice and recommendations, and making our birthday guest feel special. The fish was a little disappointing, but all of the BBQ and appetizers were excellent. Especially the BBQ ribs, buffalo wings and brisket burger.

Great experience, per usual. I may be a bit biased, as my family has dined here since I was a kid. It was nice to see some familiar (and new) faces and receive the same great level of service. The classic parm-crusted filet and French onion soup never disappoint.

Great food, wonderful service! We were there to celebrate my birthday and they certainly made me feel special! My only concern was that the tables were very close to each other and, while they were diligent about checking vaccination cards, I still felt a little uncomfortable being that close to strangers.

Freezing cold in restaurant. Asked for heat to go up and it seemed warmer for about 15 minutes then cold. Wore my winter coat during dinner . Plus tables were packed in together. NO social distancing at all but yet you want your 3% Covid charge

Food is good and drink prices are relatively reasonable compared to other restaurants. Food came out quickly.

But the highlight was our server. She was attentive without hovering, remembered my friend's food allergy, and was very pleasant. Great service.

As always, L. Woods is the best. The food is incredible and the vibe is so north woods chic, it makes me want to go to a cabin! Amber was our server and she was one of the best servers I’ve ever had! She was so sweet and attentive!!!! I was super sad that they were out of au gratin potatoes but life goes on. They had a salted caramel bread pudding and it was amazing. My partner got the beef ribs and the portion is out of control!!!! The almond crusted walleye is my favorite dish. The stuffed mushrooms were also so good!

Delicious food, slightly higher priced meal.

Birthday dessert was ridiculous 2 bites of brownie with a scoop of whipped cream that makes you think it was ice cream. A scoop of ice cream would have been good! Considering this was a somewhat expensive meal this dessert seemed deceptive and made it look like they were trying to make it look like ice cream. Who eats a scoop of whipped cream?
