Dont judge a book by its cover!

Pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem! We were looking for a new place to try, and I came across the menu online as well as some good reviews of the food. Honestly, driving up to the Woodsman, I wasn't sure what to think, as well as the interior décor didn't match what I was expecting after... read more

Been twice because I heard they had good thai food. I guess those people like their food super salty, drowned in teriyaki sauce to the point you could spoon it up, and slow service.

In town for a wedding and was fortunate to be able to visit Woodsman to pick-up rehearsal dinner catering. Wow! Excellent Thai from a location that's very easy to pass by.

Back in the day the "Woodsmen" was an American Restaurant where loggers came into eat and would have a plate of food that would fill them. It has since switched owners and the Thai food is good but the American food is lacking. This restaurant is no longer the "Woodsmen" and is a Thai Food place. Wish they would change... More

It's hard to find Thai food in our area so when we did we were pleasantly surprised that the food was wonderful. I can't suggest the pineapple fried rice enough. My wife enjoyed the PadTai (sp). The outside of the building truly hides a jem inside!

Don't get the good reviews. Bizarre logger decor in an oriental business is surreal and the high point of any visit. We were first in the door for lunch on a Saturday. With no lunch specials, you get the $$$ dinner menu meaning most Thai dishes run $14 and up - spendy for a single item unless it is first... More

Driven past this place a hundred times. Wife & I stopped in and enjoyed an excellent burger and Thai dish. Food was delicious and generously portioned. Server was very attentive. Even the owner came out to ask us about our food; she was a kick in the pants!

The Woodman restaurant is a Thai place, near the outskirts of Philomath. Built in 1936 the building served a reported rough and tumble mill bar for decades but has changed into a delectable thai restaurant/ i have never been to a Thai restaurant that has saws and chain saws on the wall but it works. The food is great, large... More

I haven't been in here for quite a while, not really a huge fan of Tai food. That said, We had a dinner party of six seated. All ordered Tai dishes, except one member who ordered a burger and fries. The service was good and the food, all the dishes well prepared and enjoyable. Two in the party have traveled... More

I know this place is supposedly good for Thai and I had the chicken fried steak but it was average...a small piece of meat with a plate full of vegetables...ugh! Taste was average...nothing special. The atmosphere is like a dive bar and doesnt do anything for the food...I really have no interest going back.
