South Woods of Cudahy, a supper club that opened in 1970, will serve its last dinner on Oct. 28. Owner Larry Burss cited factors including the rising price of beef and seafood and the prohibitive expense of making the lower-level banquet room fully accessible for customers with disabilities. It's been an emotional week since making the decision to close, he... More

After munching on the bread basket (the garlic chips are out of this world!) we ordered. I had a salad which was fresh and quite... More

First time customer with all five kids and spouses. Called ahead for seating and was not a problem when we arrived around 6:15 Thursday.Interior presence was not the best.

If you like old school supper clubs, this is the place for you. Their prime rib is awesome and the value can't be beat. The seafood combo is my husband's favorite. You always get soup and salad with your dinner. A stop in the bar is a must. Flo makes the very best martinis anywhere!! The only thing that keeps... More

My husband and I celebrated our 36th anniversary and were looking for a nice restaurant with good food and service. South Woods hit a home run on both !! The food was excellent and plentiful and our server "Liz" was attentive and helpful. We were surprised to receive an anniversary cake to top off a perfect evening. Would highly recommend... More

We always went to South Woods for family gatherings. Wonderful food, and great prices. I love the chicken cordon bleu myself! Get reservations during holidays, otherwise, you might be able to wing it.
