A group of girlfriends and I celebrate all our birthdays at Woodlands. We love the food and the convenience of the location for all of us. This last time we had the best server we've ever had...Heather was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and efficient. She added so much to our dining experience. We'll definitely be back next month!

This restaurant never disappoints. The food is always delicious and the menu is creative. Ingredients are fresh and beautifully presented. The wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The atmosphere is comfortable but nice enough for a romantic date or special event. One of my "go to" places for a great meal.

Good food, well presented, in a warm setting. A friendly neighborhood restaurant with good service, a variety of menu items and a place where kids are welcome. We have celebrated many birthdays at Woodlands American Grill as well as had business dinners at the restaurant. In each case the staff, food and atmosphere were right for the occasion.

We went for Easter Brunch and found the food delicious with quite a variety of options. The plentiful buffet was well-organized, the wait staff courteous and helpful, and even though there were lots of people, the restaurant was quiet and it felt cozy.

I really do enjoy this restaurant and do not eat there often. The Easter buffet offered a number of selections that were good, but not great and missing some flavor. A few items were fantastic. I will definitely return for lunch and/or dinner, but not likely for a special event buffet offering.

Great service, food (buffet) was good, pre ordering omlets not a good idea. Ours came after we had finished items from buffet. Asked if we could have smaller omlet or kid's size and was told no. One size only. Quiche or other breakfast items would have been more convenient. Overall good selection for breakfast or lunch.

This is one of those places where you will have a tough time deciding what to choose on the menu, as everything looks good. I went with the catch of the day and also had a bite of another fish. Both were very good, and everyone in my party seemed to love the food, so we (my family) recommend as a family meal spot or even a date night.

This was a business dinner and I had never been to Woodlands previously, but saw there were a number of good reviews. The reviews were right. The food was great and prepared perfectly. Our waitress was so very helpful and so enjoyable to talk with. There was a nice variety of entrees that everyone was happy. Everything tasted fresh and was cooked exactly to order. good size portions, but not overwhelming. I'll be back!!

I go to Woodlands all of the time. I love it! The food is good, service is incredible, and you can actually hear the conversation at your table! Our most recent meal was a Sunday Brunch. I've tried everything on the brunch menu and can never decide because every item is delicious. The $2 bloody marys add to the enjoyment. Love this place!

This is a wonderful place to have a great meal!
My husband and I started out with cocktails, Zambuca and Manhatten. Both were fantastic. For appetizers we had a hummus and trout mouse with warm pita and croutons. It was fantastic. Main coarse was the Mediterranean Pasta and Sea Bass with Pesto mashed potatoes and fried mozarella. They were both beyond belief. Presentation and portions were spot on. Desert was a mixed berry cobbler with ice cream. Needless to say we had no left overs.

This is my 3rd time at Woodlands, the first for lunch/brunch. The menu for brunch is not extensive which is just fine - it hits the main points of what you may want. Our food was good especially the blueberry pancakes. Nice vibe to the place. We'll be back.
