“Good food in smaller area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

This is a surprisingly large restaurant. It is pretty loud when it is busy. I would recommend the porch area when you can get it. The food is solid. Seafood is well prepared. My friend liked the ribs. The ahi tuna appetizer is sushi grade, but the topping is so strong, it overwhelms the funds. The Mac and cheese was much improved with a bit of salt and pepper.

“consistently horrendous”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Only once before in my life have I had such a consistently terrible experience.

I was on a business trip. Because there were 8 of us, we made reservations. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were told there there was no table for us, though there clearly was a large open table. We were seated at a six-person booth with two chairs pulled up directly behind the live entertainment. The 8 person table remained empty our entire stay.

Drink and appetizer orders were made. The waiter had to be flagged down, as two of the drinks were awful and he never followed up. He was clearly not trained in making wine choices or discerning preferences. Replacement orders were made.

After more than 30 minutes, the waiter was flagged down and entree orders were made. The salads were served to the wrong people. Once that was settled, one had to be sent back because the request (no bacon) was not heeded.

Entrees were served. Two people had surf & turf, and both steaks were cold. (The scallops were superb.) Two had fish. Both the trout and the seabass were of below average quality. One person had duck. He took one bite, made a face, and wouldn't even eat the vegetables around it. One person had a headache triggered by the loud music and ate about 3 bites. The rest just ate in relative silence and shook our heads.

We had to flag the waiter down for refills on water and also for our ticket.

The person who recommended the restaurant to us went to visit another party that he had also encouraged to come. They were a smaller party, but had a very similar experience with cold food.

We complained to the manager twice. He offered us free dessert. We refused. The person who ordered duck wasn't charged for his meal, but the rest of us left our food on the table, horrified at the experience and that no one cared.

We were a mix of travelers, and they managed to lose all of us. They cost themselves thousands of dollars via person in our group with the black credit card who routinely wines and dines high-dollar clients in the area. Most of the rest of us were middle to upper middle-class and acutely aware that the neighborhood Chili's or Applebee's was far superior to what we had.

Don't waste your time. Whataburger would have been quieter, more friendly, and probably better.

“Nice atmosphere close to home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

This was our second dinner at Winewood and although the service was really fantastic, some of our food choices were rather average this time. My crab cakes were really very nice but my husband's calamari looked like the old fried clams at Howard Johnson's in the 60s. (Read: unappetising.) That said, he ate them and dare I say, enjoyed them. My wedge salad was good but a tad pedestrian, although I know that type of salad seems to be de rigeur at a steak house (to which Winewood seems to aspire). My husband had a rather boring looking cobb salad with chicken and again, he thought it was good but nothing special. My mother in law ordered "shrimp cocktail" which consisted of 4 huge shrimp. She enjoyed them until the last one which she said was tough and inedible.She really enjoyed her wedge salad,however.
Our waitress was very knowledgable and attentive so we appreciated that, and the atmosphere is warm and the decor is nice so we will go back. Especially for the half-price bottles of wine on Sundays!
