Woolgrowers is consistent, consistently good, consistent menu, consistent good service.

The sides dishes that accompany all entrees are alone worth the price of admission. Friendly and family oriented with many large groups in attendance celebrating all kinds of events. Pete serving drinks in the bar is a class act worth pre-dinner stop. I can't remember...More

I am not a huge fan of Basque food, except I do enjoy the soup with beans and pickled tongue. This place is smack in the center of old downtown, and is not somewhere you want to go unescorted at night! The tradition of serving...More

Wool Growers starts dinner seating at 6:00. They may take your reservation, but you won't be able to be seated until then. The last time we were there it was a Wednesday night and it was packed.
