We arrived and waitress said she would be with us shortly. We waited 5 minutes while she ignored us and continued to have a conversation with a customer. It was clear that she didn't care if they had customers or not. We left after being ignored and waiting the 5 minutes to be seated. I recommend never going to this... More

We were looking for a good place for breakfast--and we found it in a sea of Denny's and similar places. Woody's is a great place for breakfast--We loved the eggs and super spuds, a mix of hash browns, mushrooms, cheese, onions. Greqt coffee, too! Attentive service, too.

we stopped by for breakfast. The breakfasts are big, flavorful. The coffee is good, serice is quick, and the menu items are a great combination of unique and traditional.

Unfortunately this place is now surrounded by a building project so you have to know how to find it. Just aim for Trader Joe's and it's next door. Friendly staff and the usual breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus a bar with tv where one can dine as well. Good for comfort food, a tasty burger or just when you're not... More

OK, it's just a diner, but some diners are better than others, and this one is pretty good. Large portions, especially the sandwiches, and the sides (fries, onion rings, etc.) are also both large and nicely done. Friendly service and reasonable prices.

There is a Wednesday special every week. It is get a hamburger free with the purchase of another. The hamburgers recently have not been as good as they were in the past.

My family needed to meet somewhere for breakfast on Sunday to discuss a family reunion. My cousin was driving south from Simi Valley and I was driving north from San Diego. We learned about Woody's Diner on tripadvisor at Laguna Hills as it was equal distance from both locations. The staff was attentive, kind, and gracious to allowed us to... 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
