Our waitress was so poor. Twice she got one of the orders wrong. Her service was so slow that my friends will no longer go back.

Always good food and service. Didn’t like freshness of my broiled whitefish and waiter immediately brought a substitute meal.

My family eats here frequently. My mother always orders the Almond-crusted Walleye, and she always raves about it. We felt a little rushed this time, and I'm not sure why: it was a Monday night, crowded but no line. Waitress was professional and efficient, as usual. We will be back.

The Garlic mashed potatoes were so awful. There must have been something wrong with him. They tasted like something that was picked out of the garbage from days ago and served to me.

Can always depend on a good meal at L. Woods. From the delicious salads to the entrees - the meal is satisfying.

Not our best experience at L'Woods. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived, but even after the crowd thinned, service was subpar: no water refills, order was incorrect, sever didn't check-in to see f we needed anything, etc. Thankfully, the food was good.

Outstanding service, great food. This is one of our favorite places however since we go often, wish there were some more dishes on the standard menu. However, what’s is on the menu you can’t go wrong with, everything is very good.

I dined at l. woods several times. Tuesday they were out of all apple drinks, and service was very slow. The food was great but we were disappointed in the service and lack of selections.

Food was delicious. Generous portions that always leads to leftovers. Place has a great rustic feel of a supper club from the 1970s.

This was our first time at L. Woods and the experience was quite pleasant. The food was delicious (even if a little slow to be served) and service was great. We will be sure to return.

Fast, good service. This is a casual place, not gourmet food. BUt the food was great. I had turkey burger and baked sweet potato, both delicious. Potato came with pecan butter on the side, which I wasn’t expecting, but nice little extra!
Servers were great. Huge place but doesn’t matter, all runs smoothly.

L Woods food is always good the price point is reasonable for the quality. Best Walleye fish. I do suggest that they also offer it broiled rather than Almond encrusted

Most of the food was very good. I was looking forward to the cheese curds and they were soggy and greasy. The ribs were very good and so was the apple strudel dessert. My husband enjoyed his fried chicken, big serving. Service was good.

I love this restaurant and have been coming for years, but I recently had a disappointing experience. My wife and I went on Friday, September 27 and very much enjoyed the food and ambiance as usual. The service, however, was quite poor and not in line with my past experiences. Our server never brought us bread and went a long time between check-ins to see if we needed anything. My place setting had dirty silverware, and I waited a very long time for our server to come so I could ask him for a new one. I eventually asked the bus boy to take care of it, which he did. Luckily, I know this place is great and that this was a one off experience, so I will be back, but if I had been a one time customer, it is unlikely that I would ever return.
