I ordered the Turkey dinner on Thanksgiving. The price was $25.00 per person. That did not include drinks or anything extra. You did not have a vegetable choice. The dinner came with a zucchini and squash mixture. I wish they would have offered a choice in that.
I thought the price was a little high for what was offered. I had to ask for extra gravy on the side because not enough was given with the dinner.

Party of 4 and we all had a different meal. The filet Oscar was outstanding and the only one disappointed was my husband. The flounder stuffed with crabmeat was a crab cake wrapped with a little piece of flounder. It’s a little pricey and 14 dollars for goat cheese and crackers

The food is incredible and hour hostess Sue, Chef Rad, our blonde waitress (her name is escaping me at the moment) were amazing and went above and beyond! Love this place!

Service was excellent. Very attentive and comfortable.

Food was not up to level of service. My wife ordered the special swordfish dish. It was rubbery and uneatable. I ordered the meatloaf. It was sandwiched between a huge mound of mashed potatoes and a very thick piece of bread. Not very appetizing. If I want all that starch I would have ordered pasta.

Unfortunately, the room was very pretty and inviting. Wish the food was as good as service and ambiance.

This is my go-to restaurant especially during the Covid-19 crisis. There is outdoor seating on a covered back porch, surrounded by flowers and shrubbery. The service, food, ambience, and pricing are all five star!

The restaurant's ambiance was very nice, it felt COVID safe, patrons were distanced. However, the food was not good and tasted undercooked. My husband ordered the twin lobsters, they appeared to have been just pulled thru the shells, no flavor, nothing. I ordered the lump crab shrimp, crab meat was terrible, could only eat a portion. We just did not like the food. The server was nice, but, not very attentive, so, definiely would not return, and we were from out of town, your restaurant was reviewed and selected based on your ad. Would not recommend to friends or family.

We celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary at the Wooden Nickel and had a wonderful experience! The service was great and the food was delicious! We were sat right in front of the fireplace for a romantic backdrop and were given a free dessert to celebrate. We left feeling so full and happy. We will be returning next week when family is in town visiting.

This was our first time at this restaurant. The decor was a little more worn than the photos indicated but the staff were very friendly and we felt comfortable and ready to enjoy a pleasant dinner. We certainly were't disappointed!! The first indicator was the Caesar salad that was crisp with the caliber of dressing you expect from made fresh at the table. I honestly think that I had the best seared ahi tuna I have ever had and my husband said his pappardelle was delicious. The sides lived up to the entrees. We will be back!
