    I have been here before but sat at the bar last time. This time I had a server Pria and she was very attentive and I also appreciated that she kept a smile on her face. I had the spinach dip and salad and both were pretty good.

    We are regulars at Woodlands American Grill for either lunch or Dinner. The main reason we go to Woodlands is that it is close to where we live and the food is always good with a variety of choices and the service is always gracious.

    Prime rib was terrible. Meat was fatty and overcooked. Au jus was more likely a beef bouillon and was also bad. It probably didn’t matter because even a good au jus couldn’t have saved that sandwich. My friend ordered the club sandwich. Also bad. Stick with the salads and the mushroom soup. I’ve had them before and shouldn’t have ventured on this visit.

    Another delightful meal at our favorite neighborhood spot. Delicious pasta dishes...Mediterranean shrimp and Campanelle chicken. We love the "red envelope" promotion during the holidays. We used the last two last night, and were allowed to share one with a young couple next to us allowing them to enjoy a $25 bonus on their meal. Service is always friendly and efficient.
