Carriage ride to Woods delightful! Ambience awesome! Excellent choices offered on menu! Everyone in our party of eleven raved about the food! Reasonable prices! Impeccable service! Live piano music!

We had a very nice meal. Service was quite good. Location is a weak point because it's far out of town and the horse carriages are slow. Check out the manual bowling alley.

Woods is not near Mission Point at a;;. We are located more toward the center of the island near the airport and Stonecliff.
