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

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 had just driven 11 hours to get to Tupelo and I'm telling it was well worth going to. It will be on my list to go to again. Also it was a restaurant that... More

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. Service is one thing we pride ourselves on, so we're going to have to try harder in the New Year to make sure we don't have a 'disconnect' happen between us... More

I don't know why we don't go more often-- food is good and pricey-- it's worth it-- Service is upscale and sometimes can be stuffy at times maybe that's why we stay away-- for a special night it's a great pick
