We came and had a couple of the specials. Porky's Revenge was over the top.This burger had so many incredible flavors and was so juicy. Everyone else had the Wahoo special and loved it. Friendly staff reasonable prices.

I went to the Bistro side of this establishment, one my father goes to frequently while visiting Labor Day. All those awards for She-crab soup....had to try for myself. Just the right kick to the unusual preparation of this East Coast favourite. I thought the sound system was excellent then it dawned on me, we were hearing a live singer... More

Wanting a good crab cake for lunch. I went to Woody's. Lump crab meat, didn't notice fillers with home made tartar sauce on a brioche bun with lettuce tomato onion. After eating half; I decided I only want the crab cake with the tartar sauce. The french fries were delicious with tartar sauce or ketchup! Another satisfying meal!

We went to Woody's tonight with friends. They had incredible specials if you go early. We all loved our entrees. The service was excellent. My chicken picata was amazing and the portion was huge. Go and support a local small business.

Used to come more often when we lived closer, always a great place. They usually have local beers on tap at a decent price. I am ordering the burger of the day which features spinach, sundried tomatos, and goat cheese! A great burger can be flavored just like that, no condiments necessary. The soup of the day on their board... More

They have a special burger everyday plus a selection of various burgers everyday. Good lunch menu that includes salads and sandwiches. There dinners include at least one or two specials plus a wide selection of uniquely prepared dishes. Good service. Worth a visit. I go there fairly regularly. Never disappointed. Love their specials.

I can understand why the reviews for Woody's is mixed. I went there for a cup of their soup of the day, jambalaya (thin and not very flavorful), and a cheese steak. I ordered the sandwich with extra steak (for a $4.99 additional fee), which delivered a sandwich of the substance level I would have expected with a "standard" sandwich.... More

I came here on a whim with friends in search of a place for brunch. It was fantastic. The bloody mary bar was delicious. I see a lot of reviews that said it was "ok", and maybe they have kicked it up a notch since then but I just don't see it. I liked it so much we came back... More

Whet twice, second time with friend that love this place. First visit was really bad service and over cooked hamburger. Second time poor service, but the food was good. The beer selection is lacking. Good menu, but just have to execute it. Good luck I see this place fading away... Maybe see it on bar rescue.

My wife and I have driven by here a few times, but decided to stop in on a late Saturday morning. We passed on the brunch menu, and had their wings. Large and juicy, with fresh blue cheese dressing. We followed with the shrimp tacos. They were excellent, and a good sized portion, too. The waitstaff were very attentive and... More
