Breakfast!

Great place to start the day! Friendly staff. Great food! Down home feel to this place. We have visited this restaurant yearly and the food is always great. They will even pack you a lunch to take on the boat.

The Wooden Spoon has been around for a long time. We arrived to a group out front. You wait outside until a table opens up. The food is fantastic for breakfast. The cook is fast, so it may look like it will take forever to get your breakfast, it doesn't. We waited outside for 20 minutes and once we were... More

We went for breakfast/ lunch (slept in that morning haha...) The food was really good and the price was less than some other places where the food didn't taste as good. Highly recommended!

I ate breakfast here with my family on Fathers Day. The place was crowed and understaffed. The table was dirty and after a 30 minute wait my food arrived and the scrambled eggs had shells in them. Our waitress never bothered to ask how the food was and seemed distracted. Last meal at the "Wooded Spoon".

This place is nothing to write home about! The food is just average and they really have no signature dish. I found it to be on the pricey side for what they have to offer. Everything we ordered we could have made at home better.

Lovely recommendation for a typical local eatery... went all in for a breakfast that included "grits and biscuits"!! For us English folk who had no idea but love an adventure ... biscuits are like scones, grits is a bowl of semolina type stuff, not pleasant but added maple syrup and it was like a nostalgic school pudding!! :) But pancakes...

Looks like a little hole in the wall; true! But you will notice; it's full to the brim with people because the food is terrific! More than fairly priced and delicious!

So when you first drive up you think to yourself I'm good,I rather go to the McDonald's next door, at least that's what we said and did. BIG MISTAKE just thinking there was one day I didn't go to the wooden spoon saddens me. We ate here everyday for 7 days straight, and now being at home(Cleveland) I often say... More
