Delicious food, but the prime rib was fatty & tough. Saturday is prime rib night, should be better.

LWoods knows what it is doing around food, service, and ambience. They are very reliable for the consistency of their product. Saturday night Prime Rib is terrific.

I've been here many times and tried many different options on the menu. I can honestly say that I have never had a bad meal. Always satisfying but you do pay for the quality. Usually crowded with wait times in my experiences.

it's just one thing all very well I had my reservation at 8.15 but I arrived at 6.50 and I asked the hostess that I had my reservation at 8.15 that if I had a table for me at that prayer and she tells me if there is no problem it was My dad's birthday and I was very happy with the service because I arrived one hour before and I was not in bad with my father for arriving before my reservation and the hostess saved my dinner thanks to her and in general 👏.

The food was much improved this time at LWoods...We were there in June and the house salad was bland, the chicken was not as good as it normally was.
I have been going to LWoods since it opened....the food was always excellent.
But this past June not as good as it usually was.
We were glad to say our dinner Monday night was very good and back up to the standard we normally have when dining at LWoods.

Food as always was excellent. Even though it was very crowded, we had a reservation and wait for table was minimal. Service was excellent, unfortunately it was very very noisy.

Every time me and my three friends go there we say, what are they giving away because it is so busy. Well, what they are giving is good food and service in a nice atmosphere. We always say we are going to try somewhere else but we keep coming back. Last night was a good reason why. We shared a very nice chopped salad, two in the party had the whitefish, one had ribs and I had the walleye special. We all really liked our food. Next, we had a really anxious to please server. Evilio, who really was quite nice and caring. We finished the meal with a good piece of chocolate cake.
My group gets together every couple of months and I guess we will be going back to L. Woods for the good food and service. In sum, Lettuce gives their patrons a nice bang for the buck.

Nice overall lunch. We both had the Tuesday brisket special. It was flavorful but a bit on the fatty side. The service was exceptional and the booth and ambiance are top notch.

The food was delicious. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. However, it took a long time for the food to come out of the kitchen. And I noticed that it was the same for a table near us who came after us.

Very enjoyable American style food with a rustic lodge feel. We were here about three weeks ago and wanted to come back for our anniversary. Specifically, the French onion soup and the ribs. The French onion soup is delicious, sweet and covered in cheese. One of the best we have had. Will return again just for this. Wish we lived closer. The ribs are good (meaty), but the sauces are delicious. They have a spicy devil sauce, but the regular is what we prefer. The service was very good.

Long tine guests....Food, service both great..only issue was the Service Dog next to our table...normally not a big deal at all but the dogs handler was feeding him scraps of food the entire time we were dining....not sure of the laws but it sure didn’t seem very sanitary.

As always our experience with L Woods was
Amazing. The Appetizers took a little too long to come out and without a word from us, our waiter complained to the manager and had them taken off the check. Other than the restaurant being a little small and ALWAYS way too loud. This place is awesome.

It was a decent experience,but I was somewhat disappointed with the food. The ribs were overdone. I ordered the brisket burger medium rare and it was medium well. We didn’t say anything, but probably should have.
