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... read 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!

Ate here several times, breakfast, lunch & dinner; it's so great. There's a huge & tasty selection of food and drinks on offer,and it was great value, too. What's not to love! Service great, too. We'll be back. 😁

This place is adorable. Classic beach diner with a great menu. Wide variety of items. I had a grilled chicken club sandwich and it was delicious. Also had a cherry coke (haven't had one in years!). The service was great and very friendly. I'd be here often if I lived nearby!

We have been to this location twice now. It is always busy and heavily populated by Senior Citizens from Laguna Woods. Their Shrimp Caesar Salad was worth an encore. The shrimp are large and the Romaine is lightly grilled and served on the stalk. The service people are very well trained and friendly, making the visit pleasant. It is biased... More

I enjoyed our "blast from the past" by eating at Woody's. I used to own a woody - way back when. Fond memories.

This is a great location, right off the 5 freeway. It is easy to park and enter. Hamburgers are varied and delicious. Wednesday night specials are worth the drive. Great service, too!

My hubby and I go about once a week to Woody's for happy hour specials in the bar. It's a small area in the restaurant where everyone seems to know each other. It's next to Laguna Woods so the crowd is often over 50. Sean, our bartender is very friendly and quick with our order. However, for the second time... More
