Gotta love a place you can eat breakfast at the bar.

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.

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.

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
