Linwoods never disappoints! They happily accommodated our special requests and all of the food was yummy. Further, the entrees were hot when served to us. So often I am warned about a hot plate by the server but the food is barely warm. Our server (Sister) was fabulous. She was pleasant but not too chatty and always there when we needed her. One of the best servers that I’ve had anywhere!

My family owned a bar/restaurant for 52 years. I bartended and waited tables for 15 years.

Our waitress was rarely available, did not communicate why things were taking so long, and had to be called to our table. She is not the quality I expected for the price of the meal. I was thoroughly disappointed in her service; her lack of attention to us made me late for a meeting.

The busser on the other hand, was a total delight! She was a young, attractive African American woman, with her hair up in a scarf on her head. She was terrific, and would be a fantastic server for your consideration.

Thank you.

Wonderful birthday lunch for a friend! Sister was our server- and we love her!!! She is fantastic!!!! I would like to suggest adding another lunch salad for winter. Maybe something with apples, nuts, chicken, ......We really enjoyed the salad that was on there last and was taken off.

Service excellent and not overdone. The guys liked their onion soup and hamburgers. We girls felt the same about the Brussels sprouts and Caesar salads . The stuffed ravioli with mushrooms with the butter sauce fab . A piece of the s’mores cake with candle a nice birthday touch for one of the guys.

We've eaten at some of the best restaurants around the world, and the meal we recently had at Linwoods might be the best we've ever had. We've actually eaten at Linwoods multiple times before, but not in the past couple of years. Our experience at Linwoods has always been great, but this most recent meal was one for the record books!

We have always loved Linwoods, however, sometimes the service can be a little uneven. We had to wait 15 minutes for our table (with reservation), and the service was very slow. My beet salad was just fair- the beets were a bit hard, and I couldnt find the goat cheese. It also seems the portion size has gone down- and I'm not a big eater

We are big fans and dine with you often. We brought two of our friends for dinner and they loved it as well. Our favorite server and we closed the place down. A few hiccups with the food coming out, but as delicious as always.

A surprise gem of a restaurant! Truly a fantastic dining experience. Nothing was missed. The food is exceptional - rivals the quality, taste, and presentation of any world class restaurant. The menu has fantastic variety. And the overall experience is a 'ten'. I highly recommend.

Great food, great service, lively atmosphere. I would however call the noise level louder than "energetic." But otherwise a pretty perfect place for dinner.

Linwood’s is always excellent, and yesterday’s lunch was no exception! My friend and I each ordered the lunch special with the petite filet.. I ordered crab soup instead of the salad or soup of the day as I am gluten and lactose free. My only complaint is that the crab soup was very thick , more like a thick stew. Very little broth! That was surprising as your crab soup is usually excellent. It, of course, included plenty of jumbo lump crab on top.

Our server, Kevin, was excellent ( as he always is) , and we were also impressed with Kamala, who was working with Kevin as a trainee. She will be an excellent server.

Loved the food , worth the price. The noise level was horrible , our table was very close to other tables and we could hear the laughter and conversations of others. In the end we couldn't even hear our voices for conversation. Tables being far apart from each other would be helpful and would make the dinner more enjoyable.

We had great tasting food and combinations. The squash soup was tremendous. The appetizer was excellent- mushrooms, cheese, and ravioli. The desert was the bees knees- pecan tart w ice cream was impeccable. Always glad when Linwood checks on us during the meal. Pleasant experience.

The food and service was good, but it has definitely declined since last time we dined there earlier this year. Hopefully it was an off night.
