“Above average burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Woodies is a great alternative to the seafood and italian restaurants of LBI. Fairly fast, relatively inexpensive, limited menu. Order at the counter and find a seat. Kid friendly. BYOB. Not the cleanest place. Somewhat inconsistent in service and quality. Much better when they are busy in season than when they are slow. Sister restaurant located 8 miles south in Long Beach Township. Since there are no franchise burger pits on the Island they pretty much have the market to themselves but they still do a decent job.

“Can a use profanity?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I have been unimpressed before but last saturday was the worst culinary experience ever. I have to say, "why bother?" Why do they bother to cook if they obviously don't care. Get a new profession. How could a chicken cheesesteak and fries be so bad? I don't know but I do know that there were 3 of us who felt exactly the same way.

“Best burgers and a Malt!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

These burgers are not frozen when they get to Woodies. They hand shape each burger. And the selection of combos for the burgers is terrific! I love a good malted shake. You can get one as small as 12 oz which goes perfectly with a great burger. Eat outside or in - a favorite spot on LBI
