As a local to Sea Bright we've tried to like this place but the barmaid is consistently rude (and shouldn't be able to even work there) and the food is mediocre to just par. We stopped for a late lunch during the week. Other than...More

I always look at the menu and listen to the specials. Then I get the Shrimp Tequila. Love it! Plus the Orange Crush Shrimp and Orange Crush drink. Crazy good!!!

I love Woody's for lunch. Best chicken salad sandwich ever! Pulled chicken, not chunks...and fresh sliced avocado. All their food is good but I think dinners are overpriced. Bar area is small, and on weekends is mostly couples.

Everything was good that we ordered but a bit overpriced. We ordered a few small plates and sat at the bar. Friendly wait staff.

Besides the great menu and good service, I will always remember Woody for the charitable role he played during Sandy storm - he supplied local residents, rescue works with meals for everyone. He was the Sea Bright relief center. Thank you Woody.

After driving for 8 hours and finally arriving in Sea Bright we were ravenous. Woody's was very close to the house we rented so we decided to take our chances without a reservation. The front of the house staff is wonderful, wait staff fabulous and...More

I was there last weekend with 3 friends..We ordered a wide variety of items from the menu, Calamari, Lobster pasta, soup, and scallops. Each one was prepared well. My only complaint is that the drinks were not very good. Service was excellent as well

It was my first time at Woodys I never knew anybody that went there either. I chose this because of the trip advisor reviews. My husband and I were not disappointed all. We expected a long wait because they do not accept reservations, but we...More

Not sure if they offer a gluten free menu, but they do have salads and sea food that I'm sure you would love.

Just a few steps from the Atlantic Ocean in Sea Bright-one of the Jersey Shore's iconic beaches-Woody's offers the area's top fine casual dining destination. The unique atmosphere at Woody's is somewhat upscale, yet very laid back. Our menu is California coastal with a southwestern flare which includes our famous fish tacos, fresh seafood, and exciting southwestern creations. You will always find something satisfying at Woody's.
