Solid reliable Diner Great Hamburgers, soup and salads

My wife and I first encountered Woody's when we attended a on Lido Island, Newport Beach. Looked like a simple dinner, had a large menu and was crowded.( A good sign) We then tried the Woody's nearer to us. I got hooked on their Hamburgers. Fresh meat, good sized, great taste with a variety of... read more

Loved the food & "surfing atmosphere" of Woody's. We had breakfast there twice, lunch twice & dinner once. Each meal was well prepared. Wait staff is very friendly & efficient. Every meal we ate there was a pleasant experience, & we would definitely go back again. Menu has many choices to please everyone in your party.

Stopped in for breakfast on our way South on the 5. Did not check any review sites - just took a chance and we are glad we did. They had a breakfast special - $5.99 - two eggs, two pieces of bacon, and choice of waffle, pancakes or toast. It was great! The small, fresh squeezed orange juice was only... More

No I did not die an go to heaven but the breakfast at Woody's diner was among the BEST I have ever had. That says a lot since in love a hearty breakfast like the omelette, side of potatoes, and biscuits and gravy.

We've been many times before. We love eating on the patio. (by the way they allow dogs) The food and service has always been good, but yesterday we were very disappointed. We arrived for an early dinner. The booths were not cleared and there was food on the floor. We figured they had been busy and the mess would be... More

This is what you would expect from a local diner… It is clean and neat… Not overly decorated… Has a somewhat "beach like" feeling… silverware comes pre-wrapped in napkins… Food is adequate – and lots of it, really… it's just not anything that you will remember this… But… That being said – you get good clean food in an adequate...

I must admin i was simply disgusted. Everyone has a bad day so I gave them the benefit of doubt. On the second trip, with terribly over cooked food, I spoke to the on duty manager. I was amazed at the attitude, bad mannered even rude response when I pointed out the disgusting food of the day. I wouldn't recommend... More

Food was good - the service was OK - it was not busy but still took awhile to get service. Not bad for a quick meal.

If I were to imagine a beach bar eatery this would be the place. Service satisfactory and friendly, clean and very tasty food. Had breakfast but the facility is worth another visit for lunch or dinner.

A classic diner with some surprising menu choices. The onion rings were probably the best I have ever had, light and crispy, definitely not greasy. We ate a variety of sandwiches and all of them from burgers to clubs were delicious. Highly recommended!
