    One of my favorite restaurants but tonight missed the mark. Sprecher not working and I guess it may have been too long since my last visit as Pork tenderloin is no longer the Wednesday special and 1000 island no longer available.

    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.

    Service was very good. We were seated very quickly for a Saturday night. Food was very good. Ribs are always excellent here. The chocolate cake is also excellent. Overall Ellots Pine log is always a treat. The only bad thing I can think of is how expensive it has gotten.

    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.

    You have been one of my favorite restaurants for years. However, last night my fish was served to me lukewarm. I sent it back to be warmed up and waited. After a while it came back, but it was still warm. I sent it back one more time And waited longer. By this time, my companion whose birthday we were celebrating, had finished her meal, and I still hadn’t been able to begin my entrée. I was given a brand new piece of fish, which came to the table just right. But it took three tries.

    A wonderful time was had by all. Food extraordinarily good tonight. The special rib dinner and the special crab corn fritters were outstanding - as was the creamed spinach. The chocolate cake was excellent, as well. Roasted brussel sprouts were a little dry and crusty. But, hey, they're brussel sprouts.

    Our waiter and server were above and beyond excellent, and attended to our needs in a timely manner. Our water glasses were filled without having to ask and a few times the waiter came over to ask if everything was going OK into our liking. The food was excellent, and came out piping hot. The sale was fresh and crisp and adequate for four of us to share. Due to it being Valentine’s Day the restaurant was packed, but Service and Food did not lack due to how busy they were. I only wish it was a little closer so we could frequent the establishment more often during the week.

    Love this tried and true restaurant. BUT.....the '3% surcharge' on ALL checks' is extremely annoying. And yes, I know I can ask for it to be removed. But I shouldn't have to. Either raise the prices, or get rid of the out-of-date pandemic-inspired charge.

    I met my nieces and nephew and their fiancés at Lwoods. Their first time at my neighborhood restaurant. They loved it and enjoyed their entrees. We sat in the Kenilworth Booth which sat the 6 of us comfortably. They got a kick out of that. We had a lovely waitress who was very accommodating. Our shrimp appetizer was forgotten but bill was adjusted promptly. Such a fun afternoon.

    L. Woods was wonderful as always. It was a little loud, and I've had faster service, but it was Saturday night. Our almond crusted walleye, chopped salad, and my $10 Old Fashioned more than made up for it.
