Well, I guess I'll take some solace in knowing that we weren't alone when we experienced the server from hell. Thank heavens that this place has some of the most incredible BBQ I've ever eaten, otherwise they'd be out of business in heartbeat for the way they treat their customers. I knew I was in trouble when I asked the... More

Where to start? My husband and I both got the sliced pork plate. It was so dry that you had to drown it in sauce to be able to chew it. I couldn't do that because the sauce was to spicy. My daughter got the half chicken which was very good and the sides were good. The cornbread, both plain... More

I purchased the plate that includes a little of everything. To my surprise, the chicken wings were the best things on it, followed by the ribs. The chopped pork was good, it was unseasoned but there is sauce on the table that you can add. I prefer sauce having been cooked on the pig. I must say that I did... More

Second time around for us! The first was twelve years ago, and now we found the same great barbecue we learned to enjoy! We had beef brisket...yum, half a rack of ribs and pork barbecue! Each diner said it was the best! Thought the curly fries were pretty good, too! Accompanied by a sweet tea, made a substantial lunch!

My husband and I stayed at a nearby hotel and wanted somewhere we could walk to eat. We decided not to dine in, but did stay in the restaurant while we waited. There was live music and hardly a seat to be had. The staff were all super friendly and we enjoyed our food. The wings are huge and the... More

The food was great, the bench seats hurt my wife's back. We would go back. The locals went there so that was a tip in the good direction.

Woodlands has been around for years and is still a great place to eat! Good food and great service, very casual and country feel and the bar is like a family gathering. Food was well prepared and a good value.

Place a take out order. I stood by and waited for the order. After waiting nearly an hour, I asked the young man at the registered if this is a normal wait for a take out order. He checked my name and order, turn around and grabbed a bag off the floor behind his seat and said "they just brought... More

It was the worst meal we have ever eaten in Blowing Rock. The entertainment was good but the food was lacking. We ate there one other time and it was good not great. This time everything was not up to our expectations.

Our family loved the barbecue at Woodlands. Not only was the BBQ good, but the sides were too. The dinner plates include 3 side choices, as well as the kind of bread or cornbread you prefer. The sweet tea was very good & refilled regularly. We highly recommend Woodlands for great food & unbelievable prices!
