We had a nice weekday meal of stuffed flounder and scallop dinners. The service and nice wine made up for the meal, while wasn’t bad, was only OK. The accompanying Greek salads were tasty and very fresh. We didn’t have room for dessert. Definitely worth going back.

Outdoor dining area is not available. Very, very noisy indoors but the food and our server Sandy were wonderful. After sitting in office all day, prefer outdoor dining so will probably wait until winter to go back.

We all had delicious meals! Two of us had the scallops and one had the pasta and crabmeat. I have never ever had a bad meal here and the service is wonderful!!! They even offered us a free dessert for my friend’s 51st Anniversary. Definitely going back!!!

The Wooden Nickel is a lovely restaurant. The dining room was tastefully decorated and comfortable. Service was very good and friendly. Hot bread as served before the meal and had just come out of the oven - delicious. We had a party of 4 with all ordering something different. Veal parm, meatloaf, steak and crab & angel hair pasta. My only suggestion is when you offer a "feature," you should give the price. My brother ordered the steak feature, which was very good and he really liked it, However, it was $65, more than double of any of our other meals. Quite a surprise. Granted, he could and should have asked, but I believe that the restaurant has the responsibility of telling the customer.

First time. Overall good dining experience. Started with a cheese board, 3 types of cheese, candied walnuts, bread. My husband really enjoyed the wedding soup. We both ordered the filet. Cooked to our liking and was quite good. Our only "complaint" was the room temp. We are not ones to complain about much, but the thermostat was directly behind us and was reading 62 degrees. We were cold... and it did distract from our dining experience.

Quality of food was excellent. Service was extremely slow and disappointing. Took over 20 minutes to place the food order after being seating, only to be told that one of the items (scallops) were no longer available and they need to remove them from the menu. This should have been mentioned when we were seated. Waitress was generally inaccessible the entire visit.

This restaurant is a little odd to get to, being next to the Petco, but once you figure that out, it’s smooth sailing. It’s a little above your average steakhouse like LongHorn or Texas Roadhouse, and a little more expensive, but the better food, quieter ambience, are worth a few extra dollars.
