We eat here every Sunday night in the summer when Sunday is a beach day. The food is always very good but the bar service is unfriendly and negligent. After our last experience when we were ignored despite there being only 4 other people at...More

We had just arrived in town and were looking for somewhere we could eat outside with an ocean view. We were coming up empty and getting hungry so we settled on Woody's. From the map, you would think there would be an ocean view, but...More

After some amazing lobster bisque last year, we had to come back to Woody's for dinner this year. However, our lobster bisque this time was the consistency of glue and had no flavor at all. We were embarrassed after talking our friends into ordering it....More

Ok. I should say more. But, shamefully, I keep ordering that. Repeatedly and over and over again. It's just so good. I mean, I've tried other things and they are good, but that dish? Oh man. I substitute the rice for the spicy mashed potatoes...More

I love Woody's for lunch. Best chicken salad sandwich ever! Pulled chicken, not chunks...and fresh sliced avocado. All their food is good but I think dinners are overpriced. Bar area is small, and on weekends is mostly couples.

Not sure if they offer a gluten free menu, but they do have salads and sea food that I'm sure you would love.

Just a few steps from the Atlantic Ocean in Sea Bright-one of the Jersey Shore's iconic beaches-Woody's offers the area's top fine casual dining destination. The unique atmosphere at Woody's is somewhat upscale, yet very laid back. Our menu is California coastal with a southwestern flare which includes our famous fish tacos, fresh seafood, and exciting southwestern creations. You will always find something satisfying at Woody's.
