Nice location, decent lunch

We had a nice lunch at Woody's and really enjoyed the view. Nothing to write home about, but no complaints. We ordered the barbecue sandwich and the fish and chips. Both were fine. The hushpuppies were probably my favorite part of the fish and chips meal. I wish I had gotten the salad bar though... read more

Went up to Lake Arrowhead for the day to have lunch on the water found Woody’s. They had outdoor dinning which was small but not crowded. It had a boating vibe to the decor which was cute but it didn’t make up for the lack of quality of food or service. As I said it was not crowded but there... More

We had our business there, and Woody's is absolutely as GREAT as can be. The view of the water is spectacular, the staff and owners are great and the food is great. That's all I can say.

For shame!!! worst food ever. brunch looked acceptable. Advertised a salad bar but was not available until 3PM. Service was very slow; appeared to be understaffed at lunch time.

We walked in were seated, we were not offered any drinks or saw waitress for over 10 minutes...worst customer service I have ever seen. Plus there were only about six tables full....guess that should have been a clue. It has a great view and cute layout, but they need to get better servers if they are going to be successful....

Dated decor. Place empty for good reason. Food was disgusting! The potato skins had been refried, dry and nasty. The salad bar was the best, was was just average. Waitress slow, even though no customers. Food was old and tasteless or bizarre. This place has so much potential, due to being right on the Lake, but the owners must not... More

We sat at the windows overlooking Lake Arrowhead on a particularly cold summer evening last week. Our waitress was friendly and quick to provide the butter that hadn't been provided with the bread basket (delivered by one of her colleagues). The view was lovely, the interior setting simple and unpretentious but the food neither matched the view nor our server's... More

We've never been to Lake Arrowhead before. Unfortunately, it appears the entire village closes down at 5 p.m. on the weekdays. Finding a place for dinner was becoming a challenge since the pickings were slim. After reading all the horrible reviews, we reluctantly went to Woody's Boathouse. Not surprisingly, it was empty. Visiting from 100+ degrees heat, we definitely wanted... More

The location of this restaurant is stellar, unfortunately, the server we had and the hostess who seated us were anything but! To say they were rude would be an understatement, and the delivery of our mediocre food took 40 minutes, and we were NOT there during rush lunch time. Horrible experience. We will never return to this place unless it... More

We arrived around noon on 7/5/15 - busy to say the least! However, they were wonderful and found accommodations for our 4 adults, two children and a service dog in less than 5 minutes! Our waitress was wonderful with the kids, adults and even brought a bowl of iced water for the dog! Food was wonderful (adults had the Sunday... More
