Everything was delicious. My fried chicken sandwich special was perfectly crispy. Ask for extra bbq sauce on side.

My husband and I went to L. Woods for our first dinner out since restaurants reopened. We were seated immediately and our server really took good care of us. The loaf of delicious warm bread came along with our drinks. My husband ordered his favorite, the chopped steak and I ordered the veggie burger. The food came fairly quickly and both were outstanding. The strawberry sangria I ordered was the perfect summer drink. L. Woods is our favorite restaurant and they did not disappoint. Hope to return soon.

One of the best filets I've ever had, nicely seasoned and perfectly prepared medium rare. The au gratin potatoes were cheesy and delicious.

My husband had the boneless ribs and said they were also wonderful, as was his mac & cheese, which he opted for instead of the sweet potato fries that came with it.

We were celebrating my birthday, and without us even telling them (just based on them knowing because of my membership in their rewards program), they brought out a piece of chocolate cake with a dollop of whipped cream and a candle -- a very nice touch!

The cocktails, as always, were on point, too.

Overall, a lovely evening!

The half slab of ribs were very charred almost burnt hard. The meat was a bit dry as well. This is not usual. The baked potato was fantastic as usual.

Very few things in life are certain. However, at L. Woods you can e certain of great food and outstanding service at a very reasonable price. The beef ribs are fantastic and couple with a twice baked potato, my pallet was in nirvana!

The service was NOT up to par. It took a long time before our waiter, Manny took our order. I believe he may have had many tables that he was taking care of outside on the patio. We started out with salads, ours was one that we ordered off the Specials menu — the Shaved Vegetable Salad. It was very tasty. Our friends that we were dining with had the Caesar Salad and they thought it was dry but that’s probably because they ordered the dressing on the side. L. Woods should be more generous with their salad dressings! Our main entrees were very tasty but it took forever for them to come out of the kitchen!!! I ordered a slice of Key Lime Pie, which also took a while to be served and it was frozen!!! Ugh, how could they serve frozen pie to their patrons??? It was a bit noisy in our room at first but then the tables cleared out so it was quieter. Also, they charge a surcharge on your bill but you may ask them to remove this charge.

over the past several visits, various food items have come to the table lukewarm. That has been items ranging from the coffee to french fries to hamburgers. That never used to occur. Wish the barbecued pulled chicken sandwich was available

Unfortunately, the fish sandwich was terrible. It was thin, and overcooked to the point of it being very dry. , the tartar sause was unusual, and not appealing. The service was excellent, but it could not make up for the poor quality of the food. I've been here many times before, and have had better dishes. I would not recomment the fish sandwich to anyone.

My husband’s birthday. We came for the Sunday special,
buttermilk fried chicken. The service was good and so I was the food, especially the Caesar salad. I was disappointed that my husband’s birthday was not acknowledged even though I specified on the reservation that it was a birthday celebration. Most Lettuce restaurants will at least give you a cookie or at least a birthday wish. Overall, L Woods Tap has always been one of my favorite restaurants. Thank you.

Barbecue Beef Ribs very meaty and sauces( spicy and regular barbecue sauce) very good and very tasty. prices increased a little due to Covid, but, restaurant gave 4-5 large ribs each. Side dishes were big enough to share if you choose too. Servers very knowledgeable and had good suggestions for meals and Specials looked enticing to try.
Will return again in near future for other tasty tries. Only slight complaint was our server at times didn't come around as much as others. Outdoor seating looked busy and full of patrons.

The waitresses and manager went out of their way to explain the food sources on their menu: farm raised fish vs fresh caught; organic turkey burgers etc. And it was a busy day too. We thought that was very gracious and much appreciated.

Service lacking, and inattentive.
Also brought a Manhattan with a big glob of butter (or something) on the rim of the glass, he tried to explain it was cherry juice - it was a big white glob on the rim with a dark brown drink in the glass...
