It was the last minute but we had the need of a great meal that only Linwoods could offer. Fortunately we were able to get a table. A new lemon Eddy cocktail was refreshing on a warm night. We shared a wedge salad. Of course, Linwoods has the all-round best crab cakes. We got the double :) It was a lovely evening and we were happy to end the weekend with a great meal.

It was very good. Someone should train their servers not to put coffee cups in the saucers when walking to the tables, as my saucer was filled with coffee. Also, it was annoying to receive several emails reminding us of the reservation and a call the day of the dinner to confirm. We have been customers here for more than 20 years and never been a no show.

We have been coming to Linwood's for years and love their food, atmosphere and exemplary service. However the past couple visits have been consistently disappointing when it comes to the quality of the food. Not sure if it has to do with a different group of rotating chefs each night, quality oversight etc. We had a new waiter who was very kind. We were celebrating my husband's birthday. He, who seldom complains said on the way home..."I am not sure I want to go back...we seem to be encountering the same problems...my asparagus was tasteless and soggy, my french fries were limp and congealed together and the calamari was soggy and an entirely different quality from what we have come to enjoy over the years." A plus was the crab cake - which was flavorful and delicious and the service was excellent - as always. Thank you for assessing these issues as you continue to aspire to ongoing quality improvement and retention of long time faithful customers.

Excellent food. Service could have been better. Server was held up at another table as we were ignored. Server apologized on her own but when I pay top dollar for a meal I expect top service.

Linwoods is absolutely fabulous. Our first experience with them was when they catered our wedding. Some of our guests said the wedding food was the best they'd ever had in their lives. We've dined the on our anniversary ever since and have had outstanding meals and service - way above and beyond. We've asked for a special favor for our anniversary to have some of the white chocolate pound cake that was in our wedding cake because my bride is allergic to chocolate and has raved about that cake since the wedding. They have been very gracious to supply a smaller version of that cake at our anniversary meals. I really can't say enough about this gem of a restaurant and experience. I noticed this year how may of the the patrons knew one another and had been coming here for many years. If you haven't been to Linwoods, you're missing out on a delectable, wonderful meal and environment. Go now!

Time to celebrate! soft crabs are back! These are the very BEST! They are lightly sautéed and rest on top of green beans with almonds. They came with Old Bay potatoes but we ordered FF and, of course, they were great as well. I love the artichoke appetizer. But for a heartier appetizer get the roasted carrot and beets. REALLY good! Ask for extra berries on the warm tart with ice cream if you go for the fruit more than the tart :) Of course, cocktails are great.

I had a fabulous dinner tonight to celebrate my son's graduation. We had so many amazing dishes. The dining room was definitely busy with many celebratory occasions but that is clearly due to the experience that Linwoods delivers. Even with a full dining room each course was better than the last and the staff was always attentive and fabulous. As always bravo to the entire staff for another superb meal. I can't wait to dine with you again!!!

My friend and I both loved our meals. The 4 oz. tenderloin was perfectly done. My friend's salad looked wonderful, too. It's dark and cozy, which was nice, but if I had realized there were outdoor tables, I would have done that on the nice day that it was. Our waitress was terrific.

My husband and I love this restaurant. Whether it is a special occasion, a party we are hosting or just because we love Linwood's and everything about it!
We love that they do not nickel and dime you for changes to your side dishes. That is never a problem!
And we think the menu offers a wonderful selection of choices.
We would give 10 STARS if we could!!!

Our food was spectacular and our server was very attentive. We were celebrating our anniversary and after a fabulous meal of tenderloin with the most scrumptious vegetables I've ever eaten, and the halibut dish, we were surprised with a lovely homemade amore for the sharing. Our entire experience was positive with amazing food. Can't wait to return to try something else on the menu.

I took my girlfriend to Linwoods for her birthday dinner. The atmosphere was very romantic. Food was outstanding. I considered Linwoods to be a good value given the quality of the food, service, and ambiance. I will return as often as I am in town. The hostess even brought a small cake with candle for the birthday.

We always love Linwoods for special occasions - and any time our family can get together is a special occasion. We had a 21st birthday and a graduation to celebrate in addition to our little family reunion. The service was efficient, despite the fact that the restaurant was full! Thank you, Linwoods, for making all of our celebrations so memorable!

I should eat more fish. I would eat more fish if I could eat fish from Linwood's every day. I know Salmon is really really good for you. But most places Salmon is prepared it's "eat to live" quality. Boring.

New to me on the menu at Linwood's is a sweet chili glazed Salmon. It's not too sweet and just a light spice. It was perfectly cooked with some crunchy vegtables and wasabi peas. I started with the spring pea salad with parmesan also good for you! (Well, the pea salad did have some BACON!)

My lunch companion had a classic gazpacho with crabmeat.

The food was spectacular, and it was full of vegtables and proteins that are actually good for you. At Linwood's you can live to eat and still be healthy!
