Interesting exotic food

Its a good place to go for trying food you cant get anywhere else, exp bison Steak, Elk steak, ect. The bar in the back is fun on Thursdays for Karaoke. The service is very nice and the bread they serve while you wait is Excellent with the blackberry butter.

I ate at Woody's tonight. Started with the special Southern Appetizer (shrimp cocktail, fried crab fingers and fried crawfish tails.) It was delicious. My steak was prepared perfectly, medium rare. Salad was fresh, salad dressing delicious. The smoked Gouda mac n cheese cannot be compared. No room for dessert. As always, my waitress made me feel like I was very... More

Traveling through Tupelo and our hotel was just down the street from Woodys. Started with raw oysters and they were delicious! We ordered the Filet Wallace and by far one of the best filets we have ever had!! Demi glaze was fabulous! Smoked grits out of this world!!Fabulous food, convenient location and our waitress Trudy was very good!

First off....If you are a vegan, vegetarian, or just don't like meat, bless your heart, then I would recommend Newks---who serves perhaps the freshest and most abundant salads in Tupelo. Now for my carnivore, meat loving brethren (Youre my boys)....From the minute we were seated and the waitress mentioned the words "Prime" and "Rib" when reading the specials my mind... More

THIS was just...wow. You have such a descriptive style of writing, and I was quick to share this review with the staff, Adam. Maybe next time we can try a little wild game, and get your feedback (char-grilled Elk tenderloin, over roasted jalapeno smoked cheddar grit cakes, pan roasted green beans and a rosemary port reduction take your fancy?)

Dinner was Fabulous! We had the filet and lobster for two special. All was cooked to perfection. And the Bananas Foster that Bobby made for us was the icing on the cake.

This is probably my fourth review of Woody's and this was by far the best experience yet. I have written a few reviews and the owner has responded with each time so this time I introduced myself when I arrived. I jokingly told her that I should have waited until we were through so that she couldn't poison me. She... More

My wife and I stopped for dinner here after reviewing several other restaurants in the area. I wanted to try the Elk listed as a special or the bison. Turns out they did not have the elk so I ordered the bison and the wife ordered the Shrimp & Grits. We also each ordered the house salad with ranch dressing.... More

We're hoping you find yourself in the Tupelo area again, so we can redeem ourselves on the Buffalo! It should NOT have been a little tough, and we addressed that problem as soon as I read this review. Thanks for taking the time to write it, and I'll pass on the praise to the staff. Happy New Year!

I was recommended to come to Woody's for a nice restaurant. It did NOT disappoint. The food was superb and the staff was incredibly nice.

We stopped at Woody's after looking for local seafood. I was't in love with any of the seafod items so I ordered a steak. It was cooked exactly as I asked and it was very good. However, first I was brought the wrong side. It was corrected, no problem. My other side was way too spicey but my companion enjoyed... More

I'm sorry to take so long to respond to this review. We're quite disturbed that you did not enjoy yourself, particularly since the service seems to have been lacking.
