Hamburgers were good, nothing spectacular though. Many choices, staff was friendly and polite. After we sat down my husband was called back up to the counter, the gentleman taking our order realized he had overcharged us and gave him the difderence. We never would have noticed had he not called him back up! Honesty is a wonderful thing... Thank you!!

Went here because of the great reviews. Found my burger to me mediocre, tasted like cardboard on a bun with a few condiments. A better burger can be had at McDonalds. Management has ignored my complaint, not even a response to say we'll do better. Marked this one off my list of places to eat.

Woodies is the perfect quick and delicious family dinner on LBI. Outdoor dining that feels like you're on your own patio with a perfect burger- and some live music if you're lucky. I loved my "flamethrower" burger with pepperjack cheese and jalapeños. YUM. My kids were dancing in their seats to the music as they wolfed down their chicken fingers... More

Good selection of burgers and other items. Kids menu too. Easy to order and sit inside or out. Friendly staff. Nice option for a burger craving in a relaxed setting.

They hit the nail on the head with this place! These are the best burgers on LBI and every bite was delicious! This place touts that it has been the best since the 50's and they are right. It sits at the end of Ships Bottom near the Surf City line and it is the original spot with plenty of... More

Wife and kids had burgers, I had fried chicken. They enjoyed as did I, but small portions. Pleasant drive-in type atmosphere. Good floats and shakes. Price reasonable considering how close to the beach.

Recently choice to give Woodies Drive In, which is located in Ship Bottom of LBI, a chance with my GF after having driven by this restaurant about 1000 times. Glad I did. The menu is actually quite large with a lot of burger and other sandwich selections. On this evening, I had a grilled chicken sandwich topped with guac and... More

Stopped in here for an ice cream recently and enjoyed the live music. (They have a musician on hand Thurs-Mon during the evenings to serenade the patrons.) The ice cream was good, they don't have a ton of flavors, but what they do have are more than satisfactory. The girl working behind the window could have been nicer, but overall... More
