Went to woodys for dinner and had such a great time we went back to sit in the deck the next day for lunch. The views are awesome.

Great food here as well as dining on the waterfront (canal). I would recommend their grouper tacos, they were the freshest tacos and best grouper I have had since being in the Cape Coral area. Their apps are good also, Pork nachos and crab balls are awesome too. Highly recommend coming here!!!

My wife and I visited by boat and ordered the Thursday night special of BBQ platters. They were both outstanding. Would have given a 5 rating if we were not charged for the regular price instead of the special. The server corrected the overcharge once notified but it should not have happened in the first place.

Took a day trip with the "kids". This place was great. Very easy to get about. No steps and wide entry points. For food we had the conch bites, some chips and drinks both the beers and mixed drinks were a hit. This is our third visit now and I hope the weather is a little warmer next time. The... More

Great place to sit out and enjoy the waterside atmosphere. Ordered the shrimp and Jan had the grouper sandwich. Both were very tasty and seemed to be fresh from the Gulf. The service was good and drinks including beer were cold and reasonably priced. People in boats were stopping by and having drinks and lunch.

We were cruising the island and was debating between here and Low Key Tiki. Couldn't find parking at Low Key Tiki so ended up here. The reviews were good, however, our experience was horrible. Was told we could sit anywhere, there were no tables expect tables in the sun. We found some chairs up against the railing over looking the... More

You can sit inside or at the picnic tables outside on their wooden pier! It's fun watching the boats come and go. They have fish, burgers, and ribs with home made coleslaws from sweet to spicy! This is a Pet Friendly restaurant.

Stopped by about 130 in the afternoon while taking the boat for a ride. Food was good service was very good , hence four stars. Had the shrimp tacos and crab cake sandwich. Both were good but the shrimp tacos were the best! We will be back!

Great place to just hang out. However, if you are expecting prompt service, this is not the place! Waited 20 minutes for the waitress to even stroll over to give us a menu. Then, she took drink order but we had to look for her again to take our lunch order...and, again, to give us a bill. The good news... More
