Found this place to be inviting to people of all diets. The menu offers several veggie items as well as meat and fish. Service was friendly and fast. The food was really good and well-priced. Loved the sweet potato fries!

We had dinner at Woodman's earlier this month and were pleased with the experience. My strip steak was tasty (better than the one we had a Brahma Grill a week earlier), and the cocktail large. Service was prompt but otherwise unremarkable. We dined late on a week night, and the decibel count was acceptable, but I sense that it could... More

A cozy trendy place with a variety of foods (from pub fare to filet mognon) and some killer cocktails and microbrews

The staff was friendly and helpful, the food was great, and the beer and wine hit the spot. We would definitely return if we find ourselves in Orono again.

It's a bar with some seating and a pool table. I have the sirloin tip salad - tips were good, salad was basic but fresh. My son had the pork belly noodle bowl which sounded a bit better than it tasted, according to him. It looked good.

Woodmans is a downtown favorite right at the key intersection of town on US Route 2. They have added sidewalk dining for the warm season. (Actually even though its Maine it is supposed to be mid 70's Wednesday October 19th) This is a great place to meet friends and have some great food and an evening of enjoyment.

I cannot say much about the food as we were more there for the bar portion. They had a wonderful selection, a band, it was PACKED (homecoming.....) just had a really great time!

This is a small restaurant and we visited for dinner on a Sunday evening. Check their hours because we arrived just after they opened. It is right across the street from a local beer brewery where they offer tours at that location. The meal, beer and service was excellent. If you are near Orono, you should give this restaurant a...

A friend took us to Woodman's several years ago, and we were impressed. Since in the many times we've returned, always a good choice. Bar service is usually available, with friendly and attentive staff. Only drawback is that in a college town, it is often crowded to the point of painful waits and lots of noise. But early dinners have... More
