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

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

We stayed at the Riu Playa Blanca for two weeks from March 20th on. Found Woody's on day two --- a great place ! Had dinner there twice during our stay...food is great and the pricing is very reasonable. Saturday nights they have live music - had a great time! The new owners are really nice people and thoroughly enjoyed... More

There is plenty of parking and a nice size beach establishment. I just had a beverage and hot chicken wings this stop as I had lunch in the city before... More

Heard the onion rings were the best so had to try them, one of the worst actually I've had. Tried the red snapper and was very dry..over cooked (in the deep fryer). The chicken wings were good, a bit on the small side but overall the live band made up the shortfall

Walked over from The Decameron resort, short walk from Lobby 3. Great Canadian experience, had to try the poutine, they serve Caesar's and Coors Light. The Owners are Canadian and Woody's is decorated with Hockey Jerseys from all over.

Just had a beer but heard the food is good. Bring a Canadian shirt to hang in the wall with the others.
