Love the atmosphere, the lighting, the old exposed brick. Nice roomy booths. Salad bar has everything I wanted. Steak was perfect and our waitress was wonderful. Didn't hover, but was there when we needed her. She kept glasses full and was friendly and great at her job. Can't wait to go back again!

It has a good salad bar, most everything is kept fresh. I think the tri tip is the best meal (usually enough for leftovers the next day). Very limited wine list.

The Woodshed has been around for years and I can tell you why....The best food and service around. We have been several times and have always had a great experience.

The food was great and so was the service. I love the trains!!! It has the best salad bar where everything is cut fresh everyday. You must try their very own Onion and Tomato Sandwiches!!! Great place to celebrate with family and friends.

No vegetarian choices. We waited 1hour for food, waitress was very good, did not get her name but she kept apologizing. We were not told there were several large parties going on. It is extremely cold in restaurant so take a jacket.

We eat here often enough - largely due to the best prime rib on earth. And I'm serious- the pepper crusted steak is tender, thick and full of flavor. The salad bar is delicious and fresh- not loads of choices but dressings are house made and we love them. The bread is a little sad for the price of a... More

Best Prime rib and ribeye money can buy and they have an awesome salad bar to add to any meal we love this place and stop by anytime we are in Stanley town for dinner. Would highly recommend.

I was attending a financial seminar that included a free dinner so I can't opine on the value for price. I can say three restaurant was cozy and clean. The wait staff attentive and the food was good.
