I love L Woods... the food is always excellent. However, I tried the fried chicken for the first time and was not happy with it. It was way too peppery for me. Others may like it, but it was definitely not the taste I expected. I was sorry that I didn’t get something else that I would have loved.

I really don't like to mention one off experiences but the service was extremely poor, first time I've ever experienced this, I hope it is not a trend. Always love going here, just like a backwoods lodge in Wisconsin. Also, the area where the wait staff congregates going into back room should be improved. I moved to other side of table to face away from this area so that I did not have to witness the banter, the chatting about how difficult certain tables were, the fixing of socks physically taking off shoes and lack of respect for front staff trying to seat people.

The beef medallions were amazing! Better than many steak houses in the area. Waiting area was crowded but hey, word’s out. Noisy but nice crowd. All the sides were awesome too!

We had a great server and we chatted with our table neighbors about what they had to eat. We were in a small room with several big parties and it was very noisy, but the occasions were good so the atmosphere was cheery. Our food was good, and our server listened to our wishes without being pushy. We didn't want an appetizer or dessert and she didn't try to bully us into either one, which was appreciated. We already talked about what we would get the next time we go!!

Our experience was very disappointing. After frequenting L Woods many many times, it will be a long time until I go back. We had a reservation, and were first shown to the worst table in the house, a half boothe right next to the swinging door to the kitchen. We requested a different table and got one next to the waiter's station, squished next to 2 other tables. Okay, so someone has to get stuck with these tables. We sat for over 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged our presence. When the waitress came, she offered no explanation for the wait. Both my ribs and twice baked potatoe were barely warm when served. My husbands fish and chips were hot. No towelette was offered after a rib dinner, no receptacle for bones, which I have had before at this establishment and observed other patrons using. I guess we had a really bad waitress.

We had a waiter that we have had before and he made our meal very enjoyable. The food was very good but our booth was a little mushy and cold. I will go back for the food and service, but I will request a booth away from the outer walls where it is a little chilly.

L'Woods has a very tired decor. The booth seats are dumpy. The springs in the seats are shot and old. The menu is boring. While the service is usually top notch, it wasn't this time, and we had to have the waitstaff to our table to correct several errors in the order.

This once top restaurant has fallen several notches in my estimation and I have heard the same from other people.

It needs a fresh look and new menu.

We actually wen on my birthday. When we checked in, I said it was my birthday and the reservation had that on it. Food was great. Service was awful. Sever had an attitude. Brought beverages and then disappeared. When he brought drinks, we asked about bread. He said we had to request it and we hadn’t. Took order. Disappeared again. Different person brought meals. Very pleasant. Husband ordered ribs. Almost finished, server brought bowl and wet towel. Server asked about dessert/coffee. Told him it was a birthday lunch. Said oh, didn’t know. Brought the little dessert. Delish. Check came quickly. Husband still gave a generous tip. We’re LEYE members and were very disappointed at this special occasion meal. Won’t be back anytime soon.

We took our aunt out to lunch. We all loved the breaded cauliflower. Ribs were just awesome and of course your Sunday special fried chicken was delicious. Amber was just so nice and on top of her job.

I’ve been to this restaurant over 50 times. Has always been good. However, this time was very different. We had to wait forever for our food. Waiter said there were only 4 people in the kitchen. We had a 2 year old with us, but thank god we had things to occupy her. Really would like to know what the heck happened on Sunday.

If you could imagine the perfect restaurant this is it. The service is absolutely impeccable and they anticipate and offer what you might need. The ambiance is stellar considering all the terribly sparse and TV laden horrible restaurants today. Very warm cozy and comfortable. Then there's the menu. No wings, pizzas or any of the other sports bar fare here. North woods type menu with cheese curds, walleye, au gratin potatoes as well as great sandwiches, salads and entrees. We've been here many times and brought others with us. Everyone loves this place and can't wait to come back. A real treasure.

We dine here every month or so. Two negatives this time. First, there should have been more focus on taking our order and bringing us our meal rather than pushing us to sign up for the rewards program. Server was too aggressive in that regard. Also, LWT needs to work on their fries; too many small broken burned pieces last to visits.

We were taken to our table prior to the reservation time! Great start to a terrific dinner. The spinach salad was huge, but there was none left! I sacrificed those world- class baby backs for that salad. Don't miss it.
Although many consider L Woods merely a neighborhood restaurant, it should not be missed.
