Great place for Canadian expats to feel a bit at home.

We visited in off season so it was a bit quiet but there were still people there eating and drinking. Lots of Canadian 'stuff' hanging on the walls. I had a pina colada - served in a huge glass but a bit on the sweet side. Had poutine as well. I am sure it get pretty lively during the high... read more

Woody's is a quick walk from the resort. Its right on the beach and owned by Canadian's. You can get the food/drinks from home such as poutines and ceasers! Its very casual. Food is ok. Good to catch some sport games and see some neat jerseys.

Fun place on the beach, owned by Canadians. It is fun at night, there is music and a live cover band. Go there for a few drinks and some dancing. It is super casual, flip flops and shorts- no need to dress up. I would not recommend eating- the food is sub-par.

They have everything from lobster and jumbo shrimp to less expensive plate of the day (fish or chicken). The beer was cold and the staff friendly.

I have to say we're really disappointed with the service we had at Woody's today. We typically go there each visit to Panama which is 3 - 4 times a year. I knew Woody for many years and we would frequent the place to catch up with he and Monique. Never in the past did we have food that had... More

We read several comments about Woody's before going to visit. The first trip the food was typical bar food. Well, at least on the first visit. The second time we visited, it was far worse. My husband had wings both times. The second time the wings were nothing but breading and tasted as if they were overcooked (or cooked a... More

Went for drinks. Refreshing after walk on the beach. Nice ambience as decorated with lots of Canadian sports team memorabilia and a hockey rink decorated on the floor. Friendly staff. They offer food but we just had drinks. Owners introduced us to a local English speaking taxi driver who gave us a tour of the area.

A fun spot - great for a few afternoon beers. I found the food to be overpriced - I ate there twice, having the steak one night (small but decent tasting) and chicken wings (again, small but tasty). Definitely pop in for a pint or two, but there are a couple other restaurants with much better food for around the... More
