Lunch on the water. Very attentive service. Sat outside on the water and enjoyed the island breeze. My fried shrimp basket was very good. Will eat again before leaving Pine Island.

We went by boat on Sunday afternoon. Dock space is very limited, but we were lucky and able to tie up. The service was slow, but reasonable given the crowd. Once the ordering process was started the attention was very good. We were six and all of the food was very good, the prices reasonable. A fine boat (or car)... More

Right on the water, watching a boat or two pass by, live music, good drinks, great food, wonderful atmosphere... What else is there about waterfront dining? This place has it all and then some... Been there a few times. Always worth the trip.

12 motorcycles 17 riders, they knew we were coming and were ready for us. The food was very good, and fast. They kept our glasses full and the staff was super friendly. Very casual and comfy.

We had plenty of time for lunch which was just as well as it was really busy. Sat watching the boats docking for at least 30 mins before drinks arrived. The whole lunch probably took three hours. No problem as we were just there to relax and enjoy the view. Food OK. Enjoyed our first visit to Woody's.

My wife and I were on Pine Island to ride the bike trail. An acquaintance who has wintered on the Island for a number of years suggested we try Woody's. We sat outside at a picnic table, our server, Louise greeted us and left menus and took our drink order. I might add it was windy and we were told... More

Woody's is the place to come when you want to get into the Island experience. The service is good and friendly. The food is not gourmet, but very nice. Fish and chips, grouper sandwiches and the like are all what you expect. Located right on a busy canal next to a marina, sit outside and watch the fishing boats go... More

Great little hangout on a waterfront lot. Quick ride in from the Gulf of Mexico, limited boat parking, but the guy next door let's you park for $5. Great docks! Great food and very good wait staff. Drinks are reasonable as is their food and it is very good. Can't wait to go back. This place is a bit more... More
