The patio is dog friendly at Woodshed Smokehouse, and a menu is available just for the furry patrons.

For lunch and dinner, you have many choices and all are cooked on various types of wood. The lamb brisket over oak and the crispy potatoes with smoked aioli over hickory are excellent options.
When you go to a place owned by a famous chef “Tim Love” you anticipate luscious dishes and a desire to come back with a dilemma, “Do I order the same delicious plate again or try something else?” Not our outcome.
We had six different dishes and all were underwhelming. No one at our table and several others finished. The flavor was missing, everything was bland. The meats were all overdone even the fish. Smoked meat is wonderful and should be moist and flavorful, this was jerky. This is a good place to have a beer, just don’t bother eating.
Note also, meals are ale cart so simple side dishes run your bill way up. There is no children’s menu and no children friendly food but they do have a dog menu and the abundant flies eat free.
This was a business dinner, with an out of town client. I had wanted to visit and this became the perfect opportunity. Our server was great and the food excellent, if somewhat unconventional. I loved it and will be back. I really want to try the rattlesnake!!!
My wife loved the Redfish, my guest had the brisket (and finished every bit of it), and I had the full rack of pork ribs...I'm still suffering pork overload!!! :-)
This was our first visit. We loved the food and the service. We will be back!
Enjoyed a fun meal of barbecue . Very gourmet barbecue. Served delicious meaty ribs, brisket, cabrito sausage which was the selected meat sausage of the day. Great cole slaw. Ambience on the river was excellent. Service for our large group of 8 at lunch could not have been better. Refills of iced tea were plentiful. Go and enjoy this restaurant.
Great food joint! We really enjoy Tim Love and his wonderful food!
I invited family from out of town to eat and had a great time. We had the beef shin, ribs, Mexican corn , and different deserts. The waiter was great but the cooks work not very friendly with off the menu items (we wanted grilled jalapenos). Other than that its one of the best if not the best places to eat out if you want to impress someone. All together it was a little expensive but worth every cent.
My favorites were the ham with their sweet and spicy barbecue sauce and their homemade hummis with campfire bread. Delicious. The view is great over a river. This is an outdoor restaurant that is dog friendly. Dress appropriately for the weather. I plan to eat here again if I am in Fort Worth. The service was also great each person we came unto contact with was happy and friendly.
We went here for a team lunch and it was wonderful! Our server was on top of things and got us in and out of there in a timely manner. Also, the food was superb. It was still a little too chilly to sit outside, but I will definitely be going back when it warms up to enjoy the patio!
If you plan in going on a weekend with no reservation.... Good luck no way!
It was beautiful to sit outside in the sun on a crisp day in March for lunch. The food was great, the service was friendly and perfect balance of attentive and comfortable. I LOVED the music that was playing, makes me want to come back for a mid day ice tea and a small plate and work outside. My boyfriend was in town from snowy Chicago and it was glorious for him to enjoy the food and sunshine before going back to cold and snow. We walked away satisfied and smelling like a barbecue, which isn't a bad thing at all. Thanks!
