This restaurant is more of a transport cafe than American diner .The interior is basic with a few surfing posters hanging on walls. The food lacked quality but the portions were american sized. The burgers were undercooked.

It really was a mistake choosing to get a burger here. It really is a case of style over substance. There is too much emphasis on a menu full if silly sounding dishes such as the "Triple Decker Ford Thunderbird Burger." I can't actually remember what type of burger I ordered but I wasn't impressed. The quality of the meat... More

Hello Willvz1972 Firstly may I say that we are disappointed that you did not enjoy your meal at Woodies. We always try and listen to feed back from our customers (we recently dropped our 10 percent service) I think when you mentioned the "Triple Decker Ford Thunderbird Burger" you meant the T-Bird? Our burgers are sourced locally by our butcher... More

Nice interior inside, place has been kitted out well. Good atmosphere, plenty of US knick knacks. Service is good. Burgers are quality. Nice choc milkshake!

Called here for a pit stop after a long journey. Service was very prompt and smiley, and the food delicious. Good for both families and individuals - adult only area provided - with nice touches of stickers and sweets with the bill. Would certainly go again!

We visited woodies for the first time today for an early dinner as we don't enjoy busy restaurants and it was suitably quiet. It's a nice place, very clean and well laid out, cartoons for kids would have been a bonus had we taken our daughter along but she was elsewhere. The nachos to share were lovely and we both... More

I last took my son to Woodies about six or so years ago, and the service was so dreadful I vowed I wouldn't be back. However, he'd been with some friends since and it sounded like things had changed so we decided to go for Saturday breakfast. Things didn't get off to a great start when we were told 'kids'... More

Hello Karen We are sorry to hear you didn't have a great time at Woody's. We are glad our server did move you after hearing you were not happy with your table. We will be reviewing training of our drinks so hopefully our consistency will improve. Golden syrup is actually 100 percent Canadian maple syrup. We really appreciate the feed... More

Woodies has been on our doorstep for a decade so my visit was long overdue! It's s chromed-up 50s themed American Diner offering burgers and fries in a bewildering array of combinations. I went Heavy Chevy with blue cheese sauce on the fries (a first I was reliably informed by the waitress) washed down by a beer (or two) and... More

My wife and Kids treated me to a Suprise Breakfast today at Woodies Diner, we were first in line at 9:30am to avoid the rush as its a very popular place to eat, we were greeted with a smile and led to a window seat, my kids watched Tom & Jerry ( ok I watched too ) as we ordered... More
