If you are spending time in Cape Coral it's worth a 15-20 mile ride out onto Pine Island and head south to St James City for Woodys Waterside Bar and Restaurant. Seating is either indoor or outdoor. Food is good and reasonably priced. Sit outside...More

The food is good, especially the seafood. the drinks are also good and they have a lot of different beer to choose from. What makes this place a winner? It's the view of the canal that makes it work.

The food here is always good. It is a bit pricey for the end of a tiny island but they sell liquor and out here that is a tough find. The staff is efficient and they kick out some serious food in busy season.

We were referred by a business associate to this restaurant/bar. The food was good, but seems overpriced for a burger and 2 beers. The closing time states 10:00 PM, we arrived before 9, yet it seemed the 3 employees were in a hurry to close...More

Excellent food, service, and location. Our party of 9 including children all had different items off the menu and no one was disappointed with their meal! Some even took their leftovers home to eat later.

Yes, you can go by boat, we saw several people arrive by boat. However, recommend you Google map showing canal access. We are not natives, and unfamiliar with all canal layouts.
