My husband and I both ordered the c.o.b.a.l.t. sandwich - It was terrible - a huge thick piece of chicken (it was tender) but too thick to be on a sandwich. It was totally dry - basically NO dressing - just dry, dry, dry. No bacon - menu said bacon - told waiter there was no bacon on sandwich - he said it wasn’t supposed to have bacon. Only thing good was the pickle on top. No avocado on one. Waiter brought two slices of avocado in container since we had finished eating. Sweet potato fries very good.

Cindy did a great job. Smoked trout salad was very good, but could have used more smoked trout. I had the special burger and while it was cooked perfectly, rare, I thought it was a little small for its $17 price.

We have loved dining at the Woodlands for many years. The food/service has always been wonderful. However we noticed this past Saturday April 17 that the prices have gone up substantially.
We understand stance some increase by the prices were noticeably higher for some of our favorite dishes. A little disappointing.

Always a great experience at Woodlands. Calamari was okay but the ahi tuna (entree-not the tower, which hasn’t enough tuna) was out of this world! Rosemary fries were piping hot and great.

We love this place!!!

"Old reliable"-type restaurants are now "in." They are still in business. Woodlands is back firing on all cylinders. Martini as dry as West Texas in July. Trout seems more delectable than ever. Simple wine list full of nice vintages. Service always attentive but not invasive.

Service seemed hectic compared with all other times I’ve been there and one of the orders was really off the mark. I was not happy that I’d brought people who had never been there. Usually just the opposite.

Waited 26 minutes, then asked who would be server (reservation in bar, thought bartender would be that person, asked her, and she said no...but she'd check tho until I asked, she didn't share prior to me asking). Had wanted to start on a drink prior to my party joining...saved me some money.
This was a first...at bar, or regular reservation, normally someone is soon checking on you. Still one of my favorite places to meet others.
