We went on a Sunday for brunch. It started out mixed because our waitress had a large table and we sat awhile before being served. The atmosphere however was pleasant. After I enquirer about our wait time the staff was amazing!! They quickly rectified the situation and the manager came by twice to inquire and apologize. The food was fantastic and the overall experience was very positive. We will definitely return!!

My recent brunch experience at Woodlands was not good. We had reservations and were there nearly an hour before being served! When we asked what the problem was, the server told us that there had been a printer problem in the kitchen. Really, they should have been able to work around that. I had the Marketplace Omelet with bacon, swiss cheese, and mushrooms. There was very little cheese, the bacon and mushrooms were almost non-existant, and the eggs were extremely overcooked. It was easily the worst omelet I’ve ever had.

Delicious Tuna Tower. Brunch menu has about 7-8 items. Mimosas and Bloody Marys are no longer bottomless at brunch (as of April 2019) but are $3 each. Not crowded at 1015am, but the after-church crowd fills the restaurant quickly so plan accordingly. Food was awesome--spinach artichoke dip, tuna tower, calamari.

Our visit on Friday, March 24th again met our expectations of excellent food, meticulously prepared & served, as always.
We have been loyal patrons of the Woodlands since the day it opened because we can always depend on the consistency & quality of their food and service.
Our favorites are the cedar plank salmon salad and Woodland’s hamburger cooked medium with sweet potato fries. One member of our party ordered the Chicken skewers from the Happy Hour menu along with the deviled eggs.

One MUST order a dessert, even if it is to be shared! A creamy
crème brûlée covered with crispy flambéd sugar & garnished with succulent raspberries & white chocolate chips or an enticing warm fruit cobbler baked with vanilla ice cream are my favorites to complete an exquisite dining experience.

The Frank Lloyd Wright inspired venue retains its warmth & quiet elegance without being too formal or stuffy. I have never been disappointed with any item I have ordered at the Woodlands in the nine plus years I’ve frequented the Woodlands. It’s a restaurant you can count on for any occasion!

Happy Hour visits to The Woodlands are rapidly becoming a tradition for us. Great appetizers and fairly-priced drinks. Can be a bit noisy depending on the crowd at the bar, try to get a table in the bar area if you want to converse.

It is a nice place but almost every dish has maple glazing or mushrooms and I hate both and I hate being picky and asking to modify dishes. It was really tuff for my wife and I to order. The big thing wasn't the ordering either for us, it was the atmosphere, we were the only ones outside of workers in there under 65-70+. I get everyone's got to eat but market it that way if that is what it is.
