My reservation was there and honored immediately.
Table was OK. Very close to other tables, somewhat cramped. And wasn’t large enough to accommodate all the food.
As always it was very crowded and noisy.
Food choices were excellent, even had s good gluten free menu.
Waitress was just OK, she was pleasant but not super attentive.

L Woods is our family's go-to place for family occasions. This time we were celebrating two birthdays. Food always well prepared, service was especially good. Wish they'd offer Prime Rib on days besides Saturday.

We ran into some snag ups. One order never was turned in and the rest of us were eating. It was difficult to get help but that was finally fixed. To our server’s credit, she removed the charge for the meal from our bill. We each ordered coffee and one person never got a cup. We finally fixed that one but it took a while. Servers should return to a table to check up on them. I know that is difficulty when they are busy but it really is necessary. Our server was very apologetic.

This visit was excellent. Our experiences at L.Woods are almost always very good to excellent. It's why this is by far our favorite restaurant.

There is a new young man bartending named Lester who is charming, efficient, well spoken and professional. He and Mona seemed to cover a busy bar together very well.

We went because we love L. Woods and didn’t feel like cooking on the holiday. We should have stayed home because our food was a mess. The 3 of us ordered burgers well done. All were pink throughout, completely to the outside edge. My husband asked if it would take long to get the burgers well done and was told it shouldn’t take too long. I told the server my double baked potato was room temperature; not even warm.

We asked for no pickles on the plates for the second round. We don’t eat the pickles and noticed that juice from the pickle would get absorbed by the bun for an undesired soggy texture and vinegar flavor to the bun. Food was sent back at 7:45. We ate the mac and cheese and green beans to tide us over while waiting almost 30 minutes for our entrees. At 8:10 we got our food. The plates arrived with only a burger and a pickle. The sides were not provided.

I had ordered a cheeseburger (not a bacon cheeseburger) with mushrooms and mine came the first time around with bacon and mushrooms. Wasn’t going to complain, I love bacon, was just trying to save on calories but when the 2nd burger came, it had cheese only, no mushrooms on it.

After we had to ask for the sides to return, we received a couple of orders of fries which were hot, and eventually my potato came, nice and hot. By then we couldn’t really enjoy the mac and cheese and green beans with our entrees as they were cold and half eaten.

I was too tired of dealing with errors to ask for the sautéed mushrooms to make it back onto my burger or for any charge for a bacon cheeseburger to be changed to a cheeseburger price. What a sad experience for a family holiday meal where we just wanted to relax and enjoy not cooking.

We always come here for family birthdays for 15 years or so. But I don't think we can anymore due to lack of vegan choices.

We love the beef ribs at L Woods, which is usually what we get when we dine here. Usually you get 5 big and meaty bones, this time we got 3 meaty bones and 2 skimpy bones. We were a little disappointed. The server was nice, not too attentive as it was pretty busy. Overall we like this restaurant and will dine here again within the next couple of months

Three of us ordered Walleye and three of us were disappointed.
The fish was very very dry . Thankfully there was water nearby. The restaurant was so busy , we knew it would not get a replacement in a timely manner so we left .
I called management the next day to alarm him and he apologized . He said they must have gotten a bad shipment and promised to be better, along with a gift card for us to use on our return. We have yet to receive the gift card.

The food is very good as is the service. Generally we love the decor but the last time we were in there we noticed that the number of tables seemed to have greatly increased and were very close together. Also the noise level was so high that conversation between my wife and I was rather difficult at times. Granted we were there on a Friday evening about 7:30 and therefore busy. But the close proximity of more tables really made the situation less than optimal for relaxed dining and good conversation, both qualities we go to L. Woods for.
Packing more tables into restaurants and poor acoustics seem to be the trend these days. That's unfortunate and makes one less likely to eat out.
