Service was attentive and pleasant without being overbearing. The building was the summer home of an... More

My wife and I recently met with another couple at the Woodlawn Inn as it was halfway between our two homes. We expected a reasonable casual lunch but the meals far exceeded our expectations. We each had the 3 course lunch special, and each course was outstanding. I had a very garlicky and delicious caesar salad, while the others tried... More

We went for a family birthday gathering at this facility over the past weekend. In a word, the title says it. We were quite a large group ranging from very young children to more senior adults. Everyone was looked after and left satisfied. That alone is a testament to the service we experienced. We were given a separate, private foom... More

Didn't stay at the Inn but have used their restaurant a couple of time. Certainly a good spot for that special dinner. Not a huge menu but the food was excellent albeit a bit expensive.
