    Crab cakes were wonderful, as well as the service. Actual entrance is hard to see from the parking lot, lighting there could be improved. Will definitely return

    The soup and salad were very good. I had the Filet Oscar. The beef was prepared as requested to medium rare but it was not a high quality beef as it lacked flavor. I was expecting lump crab and it was not lump and was small flaked with a thin white sauce also with little flavor. Husbands crab cakes also disappointing. Errors on the check and clumsy service

    The food and drinks were good quality, aside from the lobster mac having obviously sat under a heat lamp for a while. We barely saw our waitress, but the restaurant was packed for Valentines Day. Had we gone on a day where the business wasn’t stressed to max capacity, it probably would have been excellent.

    Service and food was very good. My husband got the filet and it was cooked perfectly, the mashed potatoes were very good. I got crab stuffed flounder which was cooked perfectly as well. The parmesean risotto and asparagus were both delicious. We would definitely recommend and eat here again.

    Took my wife here for her birthday, It was a Monday night so it wasn't busy, but that assured us the service was top notch! the atmosphere was quiet and peaceful and they sat us next to their fireplace which made for a splendid evening. The server was on top of everything, we never had an empty glass, or a dirty plate on the table. The wood was excellent, my steak was cooked just the way I asked and my wife commented on how great her risotto was. This was our first time here, but they have earned a spot in our rotation.

    It’s too expensive for the quality of the food you get. My husband got a strip steak, it was a bad cut- huge fat strip and poorly seasoned. Mashed potatoes were over seasoned. I ordered the Crab and Angel pasta with a citrus garlic beurre blanc sauce. I’ve had good beurre blanc sauce and this was not it. It was unbalanced and had actually split. Our waiter was fine. They were under construction so we were forced to eat in the bar. They put us right under a heater, so I had warm air just blasting me in the face. We won’t come back.

    They managed my food allergies well. We spent $120 for a dinner for two that only included one split appetizer, one alcoholic drink and one shared dessert. Meals were good but not big enough for leftovers.

    The Wooden Nickel has been one of my favorite restaurants and I haven’t been there in a very long time! It was so nice to come back with my lady friends who went for the first time! They all loved the food and the friendly waitress we had! Our waitress was Lisa and she was very patient, friendly and an energetic bunny! Definitely will be back again!

    Lobster, steak and pasta very good. Stuffed flounder needed much more seasoning and more crab and there were only 3 stuffed shrimp on that entree and for the price, there should have been at least 4. We asked for lemon to put on shrimp and flounder and that helped a bit. Risotto with the lobster was very good too. The potatoes with the stuffed shrimp were rock hard--asked for something else and got regular mashed potatoes (not the redskins that were with the steaks) which desperately needed salt. Kids portion of spaghetti with meat sauce were huge and well worth the price. The mashed red skin potatoes with the steak were very good as was the asparagus vegetable. Excellent attentive service.

    We had 6 adults & one 4 year old. Unfortunately, and never again, we were seated in the bar area. We had trouble having a conversation with the person next to you let alone someone across the table. The bar was so loud it was difficult to have a good experience. I really didn’t want to hear the problem with someone’s husband. We were seated immediately upon arriving, 6:30 pm. However it was close to 1/2 hour before we got drinks ordered. I don’t remember the exact time but it was approaching 8 o’clock. Three of the dinners were prepared satisfactorily, but the other three ranged from nearly raw to definitely undercooked. In order to eat hot food the 3 good meals were eaten while the others were being cooked. All 3 were finished before the other 3 got served. All the food was eventually cooked well & was delicious. However, it was after 8.30, 2 hours, before we got to leave. We were planning on a group of 12 in late January but are thinking about somewhere else. In any case, if we do decide on The Wooden Nickel it won’t be in the bar area.

    Two in our party had never eaten here before. Before we left they said they wanted to come back to try other dishes on the menu that sounded good to them. My only issue was that we were a party of four women and our waiter kept referring to us as “guys.” I know what it’s part of the vernacular, but it’s just as easy to say “ladies.”
