We come here often for Sunday dinner, but were so disappointed this time. Both steaks at the table were not cooked to our requests, and because we were dining on the later side, we were subjected to all the cleaning of the restaurant (vacuuming, moving tables around) for the next day. Really distracting and unpleasant. We will not return at closing time again.

Good is always delicious and abundant! I always have leftovers. My favorites are the wedge salad and chicken and ribs combo. The meats are smoked to perfection and just melt in your mouth!

Our experience at L Woods was good, but not great. I had the walleye fish & chips and found them bland and disappointing. My wife had the ribs and really liked them. Our server was good, but forgot the bread and seemed distracted (he was busy). We had a late dinner (after 8:00 pm), but it was still crowded and loud throughout. Overall, L Woods definitely lives up to its "Wisconsin supper club" vibe, but I doubt I'd try it again. Like I said, it was fine for one night, but nothing there makes we want to go back.

L Woods never disappoints. Been going there for years. Went on a Wednesday to get the fried pork tenderloin. Terrific. For the holidays, they have a cranberry mule. Do yourself a favor and order it.

Always a great time at L Woods! Cocktails are fabulous & skirt steak is a must! I ordered the pounded chicken, not bad but could maybe use a little sauce?

Service is always impeccable & friendly.

Service was not as good as usual, a bit rushed. Waiter seemed overwhelmed. Food was excellent. We sat in the bar, which my friends like, but I like the main areas better. This was of course noisier.

Setting was nice - not too loud, family friendly, food was great (ratings are pretty accurate) and reasonably priced, our waiter was a bit slow but it was a busy night so I don’t blame him. Made a reservation through Open Table and then the restaurant called the morning of to confirm. They were able to acommodate a high chair and booster seat as requested on Open Table. Super easy and simple to make a reservation.

It's a great place for everyone. Been going for years and years.
The menu is limited if you are a vegetarian/vegan. They're trying but, really should up it with a few new items for that genre of diner.

As usual the food was magnificent. As my husband said, we have never had a bad meal here. The only drawback of the evening was the less than attentive service. Our server was helpful and nice but we had a hard time getting her attention when we needed something and she really did not check on us that often. It was a Sunday evening and I know it was busy but it just was not our usual experience.

Our server Emily was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and never let us feel that she wasn't aware of where we were at in our meal and if we needed her (or another drink!). I had "Pounded Chicken a la Sima" sort of a personalized verson of Chicken Picata - fantastic! My friends had the "Walleye Fish and Chips" - huge service portion, and the trout (which I don't see on the online menu, but is on the printed menu) - declared also fantastic. The food is delicious, arrived hot to the table and very plentiful servings. Prices are very reasonable, and being a part of the Lettuce Entertain You, frequent diner club "Lettuce Eats" is wonderful - they're generous and it's easy to use. My two friends had been there many times before, this was my first time, but believe it...it won't be the last!!!

The risotto/barley combination that accompanied the filet special was not what we expected from risotto. It was not the texture of a creamy risotto-it similar to undercooked rice. Otherwise, everything else was great.

We love this place - it consistently has great food and great service. On this occasion we had Caleb as a server and he took such good care of us - he was very attentive and friendly. We had the brisket burger and the prime rib. Both were cooked as ordered and were very good. Portions were good. You can't go wrong eating here.
