Beautiful patio and good food!

Want to sit outside and enjoy the weather? This is the spot. Lots of room inside too. A casual dining spot that I have been to a few times. This time it was lunch on a hot sunny afternoon. We sat on the patio - I had the special for $12 which was a Jamaican jerk chicken wrap with fries... read more

Pleasant terrace and nice outlook but the menu is limited and pricey. $8 for a beer?! Caesar salad was just ok. Staff a bit slow, didn't know the menu very well. Husband in wheelchair was greeted with a flight of stairs and no ramp. As it was only a few stairs we carried the chair up and he climbed up.... More

We went to Wood for dinner before a major holiday. The service was just as good as the first time, and the food still amazing. Lots of times when you go back to a restaurant, the second time is not as impressive. Not Wood. Salmon burger and yam fries - so good! My friend had and loved the Hunter Chicken.... More

We were seated quickly and had a lovely waitress. The food was amazing the best we have had on a 3 week holiday over North America.

We stood around and waited for an outdoor patio seat for 20 minutes, even though there were 6 empty tables. I offered to sit at one and get my own beers from the bar, but was not allowed to do that. They obviously need to hire more help, or maybe better help. It was just so disorganized. Finally, we ordered... More

We've been to the wood restaraunt twice and the food has been great each time. We had kids with us ranging from 7 to 15 and everyone was happy with their meals.

Read average reviews but went to sit on patio after a hike. Actually had a lovely wrap for lunch, nice glass wine and especially friendly and helpful girl serving ( who also volunteers for mountain rescue) all good!

We got there around late on a very hot afternoon, patio was full, needed drinks and our server suggested a couple of unique thirst quenchers that really did the trick!! The salmon salad was wonderful and refreshing.

Comfort foods, yeah ! Nice relaxed pub atmosphere, very friendly service, and the food was delicious. (soup, chicken tenders, salmon burger etc)... More

Went to this place because it was the only place open where we could get something to eat and a beer. The beer was cold and several types on tap. The food was ok. I liked the beer much more. The outside seating would have been nice but they weren't turning the patio heaters on and it was chilly. Service... More
