Woody's in panama

A truly awesome experience. Food is incredible as are the cheap drinks. You must try the lobster and shrimp dish. Best money that we have ever spent eating out. Thank you so much to Theresa, Dave, Debbie and Vern. We will be back and hope that all Canadians join us.

Woody's looked great today. Nice clean beach, nice bar, reasonable prices, excellent service - that's the good news. The bad news - the food was horrible. We ended up with 2 very rubbery Corvina fillets, 2 scrawny Corvina fried fish, and one order of very over-cooked (Mrs. Paul's) Corvina fish sticks. The kitchen staff is in dire need of help... More

We went to Woody's twice during our time in Panama, both times it was amazing. If you are staying in Farallon This is a place to visit. Great food amazing drinks and even more amazing owners. A little piece of home can be found at Woody's. Owners are from ontario and have managed to add at little bit of Canada... More

A great Canadian owned restaurant on the beach. We had dinner there while the Juniors hockey game was on (yes they had the Canadian game on!). My boyfriend and I had to try the poutine, the greek salad, calamari (soooo good, the batter was amazing) and we shared the sea bass with 4 beers and the bill was $45 U.S.... More

Woody's has a very cool beach location and lots of great Canadian memorabilia. When we first walked in the view to the ocean was very inviting and the bar was well stocked with beer and other adult beverages. They even had my favorite scotch...Famous Grouse! However, since it was the middle of the day and I was driving back to... More

Place was good to get a cold beer and burger average prices in a place to catch a hockey game since it's owned by Canadiens. Friendly party atmosphere but is on a local beach which is extremely dirty trash homeless people and drug evident in area. Other than the uncleanliness of beach this is a good hangout to cool off...

My wife and I split a hamburger and fries and a veggie stir fry with rice. We normally eat vegan, and though we could've both had the stir fry there weren't many other options for vegans. The food was not greasy at all (a common problem we ran into in Panama) and tasted good -- all in all very good... More

We met the new owners father Bob, who invited us in and made us feel right at home, just like the awesome Canadian decor. Excellent Caesars!
