I'm sure this restaurant was wonderful back when there were other stores in the plaza to sustain it. We used to go to a Woody's over in Orlando and loved it so decided to take the ride from Lakeland to Winter Haven to enjoy Woody's BBQ. We won't go again.

Love their soup and salad, full salad bar. Lots of good things to choose from. The soups are different everyday and always hot!

Nice, neighborhood rest. Clean with friendly staff. Ribs were moist, fall off the bone good. Sweet potato was cooked perfectly. French fries were a little disappointing.
