Step back in time into Woodies Diner, the authentic American beach-side style diner with all the retro touches to take you back to the days of Grease, Elvis and Buddy Holly! You'll feel like you're in a film set surrounded by 50's and 60's American memorabilia - from the jukebox to the "walk don't walk" sign, retro surfboards and classic diner décor. There's even palm trees out front to give that full beach side diner feel! Think Beach Boys meets Happy Days and you're at Woodies. Our waiters and waitresses will serve you all those diner favourites - thick shakes, soda floats, burgers, ribs, steaks and sundaes.

Absolutely disgusting! Came to Woodies to meet friends for brunch thinking. However when i asked for a plain omlette To be told they can't scramble eggs or do an omelette. They have nothing on the menu that caters for any dietary requirements. Why in God's name can I kitchen not Scamble an egg. If Michelin star restaurants let you order... More

Hi Carole thanks for getting in touch with us. Firstly may we apologise for your bad experience at Woodies. We do actually cater for vegetarians and state all foods that include possible allergenic ingredients based upon recent raised government standards. Regarding ordering the omelette that was not on the menu, due to breakfast being so popular it is our busiest... More

As we live locally we've been to Woodies a few times and have generally found it to be very good. There is a good selection of burgers and steaks along with classics like a steaming bowl of chilli or piles of spicy nachos plus various veggie options.A great array of drinks and very indulgent milkshakes coupled with some deserts to...

All had burgers of varying varieties, could do with a couple of extra non-burger options on the menu and hard to spot the specials. The burgers however were tasty and well presented,... More

The staff here are amazing. We have some food allergies and a hyper child, the staff always suggest items which can be eaten and suggest how they can make a dish suitable. They fully engage and play with the children. The food is great, very fresh and cooked to order.

Love this place! Fab menu of American favourites - Burgers, ribs, steak, nachos, chilli & veggie options. The burgers are amongst the best in town - Big, fresh & juicy. You have the option to build your own, which is great for picky eaters (like me!) Despite being extremely busy when we last visited, staff were lovely.

Visited this morning for breakfast as was my favourite place to come. Haven't been for a few months and will not be returning anytime soon. The prices have gone up by roughly 15% yet the quality of the food has majorly gone down, not sure how this works and how the price increases can be justified. The toast is now... More

Hi Stefanie Firstly may we apologise that your breakfast was not up to our usual high standards. We will be addressing quality control and consistency at our next team meeting. At Woodies we have not had a price increase in 3 years and unfortunately some prices have had to be raised due to increases in food costings, but we are... More
