Seemed highly recommended, but for a Saturday night were out of several menu items. Food was hot, but several members came down with stomach flu, tables felt a bit sticky.

Woodys is our go - to local restaurant. The food keeps improving and the service is always consistent and efficient. Can't go wrong with the shrimp tacos or rice and beans.

I visit about 1x a year by boat hoping it gets better. I used to visit by car or boat 6-10x a year. Service is almost non-existent. Dont go unless you are in no hurry. And you should bring your own drink to start, or dehydrationmay occur. I tried the shrimp fahitas, or maybe they called them tacos, blackened. Turns... More

Four of us, all seniors, stopped for lunch during our tour of the area. Parking was ample, self seating appreciated and service attentive. We tried several things, Cobb Salad-Fried Shrimp Basket-Mahi Mahi Basket-Conch Fritters, and all were well prepared, fresh and tasty. The blue cheese crumble and bacon on the Cobb were generous and the mixed greens a nice blend.... More

I had the blackened grouper sandwich and it was perfect! Not too spicy for me! I substituted their onion rings for the fries and they were delicious and the sauce for them was, also! Because of the substitution, I did not receive my coleslaw but our waitress did bring me one after I asked. FYI: She indicated that when I... More

We went for lunch and sat outside on the crowded deck facing the canal. Fun to watch all the boats go by while we ate. They have some interesting pairings of cheeseburgers. We had the gouda burger with caramelized onions, which was delicious. We would definitely return!

Went for snack and drinks while exploring Pine Island. Chose Woody's as it seemed to have the largest outdoor area on the water. Service was good, once we flagged down a server. Food was your standard pub food, grouper sandwich actually had too much fish and had to remove some to eat it. Would go back, would be fun to... More

Usually go each year to this restaurant when boating in Pine Island. Went with a friend and husband. It was a Monday & we realize a number of places are not open on this day. Outside patio fairly busy. HOWEVER at the outset we were informed that they did not have various staple items from the menu ie hamburgers, one... More

We got to Woody's for an early lunch just as all the outdoor tables, which we would have preferred, were all occupied. So we went inside and were told to sit anywhere. We were seated for about ten minutes before the young woman who told us to sit anywhere came to the table with menus and said that Lois (or... More
