We love L. Woods - one of our favorite restaurants. Our service was extremely slow, but the food was top notch.

Another great meal at L Woods. Started out with the cheese curds and buffalo cauliflower. Excellent appetizers. Do not normally have drinks, but we had an Alexander the Great which was very tasty. For the meal, had the prime rib, chicken schnitzel (not sure of the menu item name), walleye sandwich and veggie burger. All of the food was excellent, can rely on it. For dessert, had the apple strudel, which was delicious. Service was fast and efficient, always filling up water and soda, but never being invasive. Love this place, will continue to keep going here.

We ordered a piece of pie for dessert. I have NEVER seen such a small slice of pie in my life! The waiter said that it was the lunch size but couldn't tell us what the difference in price was between the lunch and dinner size. We re-ordered the dinner size. On our way out we asked the hostess he difference in price between the lunch and dinner size pie. She said that as far as she knew there was only one price for pie. RIDICULOUS!!!

Made it just before the ‘Big Close’ of restaurants. Not disappointed, as usual. Every visit has always been fantastic with great service. Can’t wait to (be able to) go back.

They honored our reservation time which is extremely important. The server I believe was new and needed to be a little more attentive. The food was excellent as always. The atmosphere was great and the temperature was great too. Some places make it to cold to rush you out but here. Can't say enough about the restaurant

Food was delicious, as usual. When making my reservation on YELP, I was very particular as to where I wanted to be seated. After 30 minutes, and several attempts to satisfy me, we were offered a “quiet”, spacious booth. Our waiter was terrific! Knew the menu well, checked in several times. Lovely demeanor. Always had a smile on his face.

First time we've had less than perfect service. Place is always busy,so no issues with that. Seems that the wait staff and " helper" didn't quite have control, ie, no silverware, no bread, but fast to ask for drinks or apps, and slow to respond to silverware and bread.

Been customers from day 1 and before ( Bones)

Our server was very attentive and made sure our drinks were refilled and our food was ordered and served in a timely manner. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals. The fried chicken special was very large portions. Our server also noticed that we were celebrating my son's birthday, without us telling him directly, and brought us a birthday dessert with candle.

It's always a good sign if when you arrive for your 5 pm Sunday reservation, the parking lot and lobby are full. Shows a lot of local support. It's even better when they haven't messed up your reservation, and they seat you right away with a smile, even though the place is packed. And then when they deliver exceptional food that fully lives up to the menu descriptions, it doesn't get any better, regardless of price. I tried both the "Wisconsin" and the "Classic" Old Fashioned, and they were very well done. My "Almond-Crusted Walleye" was the best restaurant fish dish I've had in a long time—done to perfection with a great crust—all-almonds, not a breading. Finally, my Fudge Sundae (my go-to restaurant dessert) was just the way it should be—delicious, homemade vanilla bean ice cream and not-out-of-a-can fudge. My companions were all very pleased with their brisket sandwiches, kale (etc.) salads, drinks, and desserts. Glad to see they carry Sketchbook local brew as well. Can't wait to go back.

I like the “feel” of the log cabin atmosphere. The bar area is lively ( wish it was a little bigger). I usually order a “seasonal” drink. They are always different and delicious. The French onion soup is great, as well as the almond crusted walleye, the prime rib and you have to end a perfect meal with a perfect dessert, the apple strudel with caramel sauce is so good and you wont be disappointed. As have a great meal and leave happy and satisfied. One of my favorite restaurants.

Our reservation for two was at 5pm on a Friday. We were promptly seated, but the place was already very busy. Dinner was good. I had the house made veggie burger, my friend the coconut shrimp. I didn't love the WI Old Fashioned. Our waiter had no issue changing it out for something else. Be prepared for a lot of chatty noise and close proximity to walking waitstaff and other diners.

This was the worst service I have experienced here. I typically enjoy my dinner as well as my service. Our server did not seem interested in our table. It took him 20 minutes to initially take our order. I had to ask for silverware, a refill on beverages, when I ordered my drink he didn’t even as the other four people at the table if they want any kind of beverage he just walked off. I had to call him back to take the rest of the tables drink order. He was not attentive never came back to check on the table unless we waved him down. Extremely disappointed, my family and I came here often but all in agreement that perhaps this restaurant has ran its course.
