The waitress was the best. Our intention for lunch was to share a salad first and then an entree. She brought the salad first, as requested. And she even served the main dish on two plates making it easier for us to share. We had a very relaxing and delicious lunch. She kept our drinks fresh and was very attentive without bothering us. Sorry I don’t remember her name.

Front staff was SUPER wonderful. Waiter was inattentive. Food was good, but I think you shouldn’t have to choose between a vegetable and a potato on a $35 dinner, but that’s just my opinion. Blueberry desert was unremarkable. Decor is homey. Good experience but not over the top.

We had not been back to Elwood’s in awhile due to its distance from our home. This visit was great. Very good food & specials. The noise level was very high & we had two guests who were hard of hearing. Having a round corner booth helped. Beware as well that if you are ordering the fish & chips the chips are like potato chips & infused with vinegar. The French fries were amazing!

Excellent service by Jason. Food is reliably delicious. The noise level from piped in music is intolerable. Very difficult to hear conversation at our table with the background music. That is all I would change about our experience.

Leye members for years. Used to frequent L. Woods but moved away a couple of years ago. Returned on recent visit to Chicago. Food was disappointing. Friday special fish fry, lake perch, was terrible. Flavorless and tough. Accompanying sweet potato and clam chowder fared better. Baked whitefish was full of pin bones. Mac and cheese made with processed cheese. $10 for individual “everything” wedge salad which actually had “nothing” on it. We enjoy this location and the supper club vibe/ambiance, but suffice to say, we are likely to patronize other Leye establishments that rarely disappoint.

A VERY PLEASANT SURPRISE ! I will be back :)I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable. My BBQ chicken - excellent but I would have liked to have it cut for me ! Steak and everything else wonderful

We have always loved it there but this time there was so many things gone wrong

The temperature was so cold my spouses feet were freezing and I who am always warm was freezing and went to my car to get my sweater

The food cam out cool and some cold

The food was over cooked

Couldn't wait to get out of there. Hesitating if it was because it was Sunday on a holiday weekend and the normal staff and cooks weren't there or just bad

We're not running back we were soooo disappointed

I’ve had the cedar planked salmon many, many times and always enjoyed it! Tonite, it was disappointing. The salmon was cooked separately, not on the cedar plank as it is usually cooked. The salmon was placed in a black, burnt piece of cedar, with the usual mashed potatoes and corn, none of which had the cedar flavor.
Please let me know your thoughts.

We are frequent visitors and I was less than impressed with the service. It took forever for him to check on us, I actually needed something. I thought our apps were cooler than they should be, but since he was so busy and inattentive, I gave up on saying anything.

As always the food is very good, drinks are good too!!

L'Woods suffers from being old and worn out. The booth seats are so old that you sink into them. The table top was warped and scratched also. The food is still good and we will continue to go there, probably that's the issue.

It's time for them to clean up the place, and have a slightly varied menu. It's old and tired.

L. Woods is a great throw back to the northern Wisconsin super clubs.
Food is very good and the prices are average.
The brisket burger I had was over cooked and very dry. I wouldn’t recommend that.
The fish fry my wife had was excellent.
