    Overpriced tasteless food.. ordered stuffed shrimp with crab. Got 3 pasty shrimp where was the crab ? Served with 3 asparagus for $17. I don’t mind paying the price for good food but this was awful & ridiculous .. ordered dessert because we were still hungry. Never had a key lime pie that the whipped cream had more flavor. Tired decor needless to say we won’t be back.

    They did not have our reservation. The food was horrible for the price charged. My meal came out without the sauce it was suppose to have, when I asked for it, it took a good 15 minutes to get and my food got cold. Very disappointed. I do not recommend.

    I have had the papardelle bolognese here twice, and it is excellent! The service is good. I think it's great that they have busboys. The only real negative was that both wines by the glass I asked for they were out of; I did find a decent replacement, but when they are out, I believe they should offer to substitute something similar at the same price. I like the atmosphere--not trendy or too modern. Prices seem a bit high, especially for pasta. But, overall, a great place and I will be back!

    Went for a special Mother's Day lunch. Limited menu but options for the whole family. Server was great and brought food in a timely manner, also kept our water filled (and we have a few in our party who drink a LOT of water). Enjoyed the time and meal and restaurant.

    Absolutely wonderful dinner! We had such a great time with wonderful food. We started with a Shrimp Cocktail that was moist and delicious with a zesty cocktail sauce that paired beautifully. We then had a wedge salad, with delicious Bleu cheese dressing, crispy bacon, and chopped tomatoes. We also had the French Onion soup, that was rich, full of onions, and topped with lovely croutons and baked with cheese that was nicely browned. After our soup and salad, my husband had the filet with asparagus and mashed potatoes. It was cooked and seasoned perfectly and tasted so good. I had the grass-fed strip steak with mushrooms and onions in a demi-glace eith sour cream and chive mashed potatoes, which was cooked beautifully and tasted delicious. We finished our meal with Key Lime pie, which was a nice light ending to the meal. Our server had good timing to the service and made the meal really special for us.

    We had a late lunch. The food and pricing were as expected and reasonable. I thought my lunch entree should come with a small salad or a cup of soup for $17. Service was good. The servers were personable and offered smiles galore. -But that carpet needs to go. It was worn and somewhat soiled.) The carpet does helps to keep the noise down (I get it) but almost a distraction. That being said, everything else was just lovely. We won’t hesitate to return.

    I’ve been to the Wooden Nickel many times for lunch and for dinner and have never been disappointed. I had dinner with friends on Saturday night and the dining room was full which accounted for a slightly higher than normal noise level. The food was great and Paul the server did an outstanding job. It’s always a pleasure to dine at the Wooden Nickel, and it is comforting to know that the food and service will always be exceptional.

    It was pretty nice! We needed a special occasion spot for to take my parents and grandparents for grandpa’s 81st birthday. They had a good time and enjoyed the food. The prices were reasonable for what we got. Our only complaint was that the kitchen was pretty slow, but with the employee shortages that’s to be expected. Even with that, it wasn’t a ridiculous wait and we had a positive experience.

    We enjoyed our evening, and that is the whole point. Very clean . Friendly and efficient. Entree amount was a bit small. Steak definitely not worth it. Seafood was a much better choice. Upcharge to the blue cheese wedge. Saturday wine offer is terrific. a little pricy for the amount,

    Food was wonderful. The chef had to make some alterations due to low supply of what we ordered, but we still ate well and got a discount as well. Chicken salad sandwich and French onion soup were wonderful, as was the key lime pie! Service was a tad slow due to understaffing, but our server was as kind as could be.

    First time at the Wooden Nickel but will not be last. Party of four had four different dishes and all were well prepared. Dry rubbed filet was as good as you could get anywhere, ahi tuna was favorite of wife, lobster mac and cheese had excellent flavor if perhaps too rich to finish all and vanilla shrimp was excellent. Can't wait to go back.
