Yummy food!

Being a native southerner and BBQ lover, I would definitely rate Woodland's as being unequivocally " The Best " I've ever had the pleasure of eating ! The service is awesome and there's a true down home southern atmosphere here !!

My wife and I loved our meals here. We each got bbq plates, she the chicken and sliced pork for myself. They were absolutely delicious. The food was served quick and with great sides. Also, the prices were very reasonable. The interior of the restaurant is great as well. Will definitely be back.

We always make a point to stop at Woodlands whenever we visit Blowing Rock and again it did not disappoint. Nice and warm and cozy visit during the Winterfest weekend. Food as always, down home BBQ. Delicious and reasonable. Music was really, really enjoyable. We would have loved to stay had there not been a wait for tables. Will be... More

Weekends are incredibly busy, so get ready for waiting for a table to open up, which is worth it. I had a vegetarian plate while everyone else had BBQ which they said was also excellent. The most fun is listening to Gene sing and play guitar while the customers join in, bang on the table and clap....GREAT FUN! Service is... More

My family and I spent a weekend in the blowing rock area and were looking for a good place to eat when we read a review for a different restaurant saying that woodlands was the best, and when we took a bite of the food we knew it was true. Not only were the barbeque plates great but the atmosphere... More

Our family has eaten at Woodlands many times while visiting the Boone/Blowing Rock area over the past 25 years. The food has always been good, not great, and we usually leave satisfied. We visited again last night (Tuesday). The restaurant was crowded (it usually is) but we were lucky to get a table (right next to the band) in less... More

Woodlands is a very good BBQ restaurant, the food is very good, the service is fast and friendly. The best part is the live music. When there is not road construction, their parking lot stays full.

This place came highly recommended to us by a local. I was not impressed! Our food came out barely warm. I have ate a lot of Bar B Que but this was nothing to write home about. I would not eat here again.

We enjoyed our meal but could not rave about it like we rave about 12 Bones BBQ in Asheville. I enjoyed the collard greens and fried okra but found the pulled pork to be on the dry side and not very flavorful. They have a nice selection of funny shirts and sweatshirts. Service was good but we stopped there on... More
