A nice little out of the way place to go if you have the time for a little ride out to St James City. Great food, great service, clean and well maintained. Come by boat or drive on out. Woody's is always a good time.

Yes, you can go by boat, we saw several people arrive by boat. However, recommend you Google map showing canal access. We are not natives, and unfamiliar with all canal layouts.
