Went here for a Sunday brunch with two of my girlfriends....the service was terrible. The bottomless mimosas were about the only semi-decent thing there. The food was mediocre at best. I asked our waitress for ketchup and hot sauce and then had to ask again before she brought it. I then asked for this special butter that was supposed to... More

Woody's has great daily specials. I had the surf and turf and was not disappointed. The turf is a melt in your mouth filet and the surf a large lobster tail. The sourdough bread bowl clam chowder was delightful. Be careful if you order this as a starter it is a meal in itself. The location is on the water... More

Woody's Wharf has been in Newport Beach for decades with minimal changes. That's what makes it special. Food is very good (especially sand dabs) and cocktails are in full-to-the-brim large glasses. Prices reasonable. Service very prompt. It's a genuine oldie, but goodie. Almost all tables have views of Newport Bay.

We stopped here for lunch this afternoon, best deal is the surf and turf, on Thursday all wines are half off and selections are abundant. Very relaxing ambience especially on a sunny day, price is very reasonable, very much recommend!!!!

Quaint restaurant/bar overlooking Newport Harbor. We've been here a couple of times this vacation. Champagne brunch was delicious. Service was awesome. They have the best clam chowder I have ever tasted!

We love this "joint" for a midweek lunch or dinner when we are strolling around Newport Beach. We always make sure to sit by the window while drinking our Mia Tia's. Love the Black and Blue salad, mussel's, clam chowder, and Prime Rib Weds. Like I said a "Hidden Gem" in Newport Beach. I work in a Anaheim Area hotel... More

The food was regular bar/pub food. We had some apps, and the burger - no complaints, they were all delicious. The view of the harbor was beautiful! We ate at sunset and the view was stunning. Service was great. Would definitely recommend.

Old landmark restaurant on the wharf so you can pull your boat up and dock...or sit and watch from the restaurant. Great happy hour menu, but we were there at dinner. Started with the Bang Bang Shrimp which were spicy, served along with a Mai Tai and their French Mule. For entrees my husband chose the Kobe Sliders on Hawaiian... More
