    I had the crusted medallions with mushroom risotto. The risotto was extremely salty and under cooked. My husband order the prime rib medium and it came out from the kitchen medium rare we had to wait for them to correct his order and I had to eat dinner without him. For the price it wasn’t worth it.

    Other than the service being a little slow to start, everything was excellent. Brisket burger was outstanding, one of the top 5 burgers ever! Prime rib was perfectly done and superbly seasoned. Little loud but if you’re in the mood for an old super club feel, you won’t be disappointed. Highly recommend!

    Our reservation was honored within 13 minutes of arrival even though the Restaurant was at capacity. The service was extremely efficient and we were greeted with a smile & friendly attitude by all. The only negative was that my husband’s food arrived cold & I was faced with the dilemma of eating my dinner while hot or waiting for his food to be reheated.

    I enjoy this place very much, but I am lactose intolerant & everything they make here (including the bread) contains dairy. The only thing I feel safe ordering is a salad without cheese. I wish they would be more accommodating for people like me with dairy allergies. They do seem to offer gluten free.

    Food is great. Crowds and noise are high. Service was good but not great but I think we had a new waiter. Overall, a really good restaurant. I will, however, say once again--Lettuce Entertain You---TAKE OFF THE SERVICE CHARGE. It's enough already. Your restaurants are packed. You don't need the help. Thanks!

    We went at a less busy time and sat in a booth in the bar area, best if you want a lower noise level. The drinks and food arrived in sort of random order, some very quickly, some taking awhile. Didn't matter to us as we were sharing everything we ordered. But not up to LWoods standards.

    Our reservation was for 4 people at 7, we were not actually seated until 7:20. Our waiter did come to the table for at least 20 minutes and then he took our drink order and disappeared again. My guess is he had a few too many tables as the restaurant was super busy. By the time we had a chance to order our dinner they were out of the special (prime rib) and unfortunately that was why we had selected L. Woods in the first place. I'm assuming it was just a crazy night for them as the service was so slow and below their usual standard but disappointing none the less.

    Second time dining here, and I don’t know if I would go back. First time around, I lost my babysitter and had to bring my child with me. I never thought it would be a problem. Of course, as we arrive the hostess with the long black hair argues with me that they could not accommodate us. I just asked for a chair next to me for my child, yes there was room. Fast forward to this reservation, which was for my grandmothers 80th birthday. I put in the reservation details that I have someone with a wheelchair and a walker in my party. I even call the day before to verify they will be able to accommodate us. I’m told “Of course, we plan to have you seated close the entrance and it will not be a problem.” Well the day we arrive, same hostess, same problem. This time she actually can see the 2 handicapped adults and says, “is it gonna be okay to put you in the far back room?” Lack of common sense? I think so. So again, we start the meal on a bad foot and while I appreciate the manager comping some items off the bill, that’s not what I complained for. I can see this establishment is either lacking in any real management setting standards and living the values of this company, or they only accommodate their regulars. As the booth next to us had 2 babies in strollers at their tables, and the same hostess never made a problem for them. Either way, I highly suggest some changes from the top down as well as a lesson in restaurant etiquette to their hostesses.

    What a disappointment. I’m a semi regular customer. I ordered barbecue brisket sandwich. Where was the beef? Nice bun but such little meat inside. French fries were terrible. Barely cooked. Waiter was ok. My lunch companion had the fish sandwich which he liked but his French fries were also soggy and not cooked enough. I’ll give them another try but lunch cost was a total waste

    We had the chopped salad and fried cheese curds for appetizers. The salad was great. For entrees, we got the fish & chips, smoked brisket entree, brisket sandwich and kids cheeseburger. Everyone was satisfied with their choices. The ambiance is festive as the place was packed. Service was good.

    Love L Woods. It really reminds me of a Northwoods supper club. It's the only place I know where I can get walleye pike. Their beef barley and chicken noodle soup are also good. Wish they were always on the menu. Can't beat their double baked potato too.

    As usual, we had a wonderful dinner with friends last night at L Woods. We always find the restaurant so warm, welcoming and it truly feels like going to a cabin in the woods! The staff is very attentive and the food never disappoints. We drive 45 minutes to go to the restaurant as It’s between our friends in the city and our home in the suburbs. It’s always worth the drive! We would recommend it to anybody who hasn’t been there yet. Menu favorites are, their Chopped Salad, Baby back ribs, pounded chicken, any of their fresh fish entrées of course their steaks are really good too! They have nice updated cocktail offerings as well as and wine and beer selections.
