I have coming to Woody's whenever I am in St Pete since 1994. It has basically never changed, although they have a new sign. Grouper nuggets have not returned to the menu, but Grouper fillets were available, and they were great. The menu shown on...Trip Advisor is out of date, some prices have increased, and some items are no more, but they still have their trademark chicken wings, as good as ever. They have the same fish dinners, which were always great. We came to Woody's twice in 5 nights. We were waited on by a cool and relaxed guy who made our visits feel relaxed. He didn't miss anything, he did a perfect job. All our food was served perfectly hot, drinks perfectly cold and on a regular basis, while we sat by the waterfront. A most enjoyable evening, hence we came back a few nights later.More

Not enough words to say how Delicious it was. Do yourself a favor and grab a virgin strawberry daiquiri. Best we have ever had, the shrimp were Devine as were the grouper bites and Cajun fries. Oh and the view, beautiful! They are cash only...but offer an ATM on site. Check them out. You won’t be disappointed.More

View is great, inside or outside seating. We had a friendly server and barley had to wait for drinks or food. Food was ok. Best part of "dive bar" was the Location.

My wife and I arrived for lunch at about 1:30 on a Saturday. We found a two-top table on the seawall and sat. We waited an extraordinary amount of time to be served, while several diners at the picnic tables had just vacated. Our server...was more concerned with picking up tips and clearing the tables, than paying attention to us. Finally, our server took notice of us. Our food arrived in a timely fashion, but my wife informed me that her chicken sandwich and coleslaw tasted 'off'. I also had the coleslaw and I've got to tell you...I've had some lousy slaw in my life and this was the worst. Since the condiments are left on the outdoor tables all day long, the ketchup for my fries had a bit of a wang to it. Overall...it was a poor showing. To add insult to injury, they only accept cash but for $2.75, you can get cash out of their ATM. I'm a local and this is the worst that the place has ever been.More

Great dive bar by the water. Happy Hour and daily specials make this a cheap beach date. Remember to bring cash!

CASH ONLY, and atm is available for 2.75 . Drinks are cold and replenished often, there's live music that's not overpowering your conversations and the dj is sure to get your evening started right. The food is typical beach fare. We shared the ahi special...with homemade wasabi sauce, perfect for 2, and was excellent 👌🏼. Enjoy 😎More

We had lunch here - nice spot on the water within walking distance of our hotel. The service was good. The food was good. So many people told us to check this place out so we did.

We ate at Woody’s last night. The service was marginal but the food was just bad. The menu listed onion rings but, when I ordered them I was told that they have been out of stock for months! Disappointing. I opted for garlic fries instead....This ended up being soggy cold fries with a couple of tablespoons of minced garlic on top. Not edible. The iced tea was so watered down that it had no flavor. The fried fish was decent and the beer was cold and refreshing. Entertainment was good except the singer took a one hour break from 6pm to 7 pm. There are much better places in the area. Take your business elsewhere!More

I ordered a fish sandwich to go one day at lunch and took it to the beach to eat. The next night a group of us went for dinner and ate outside on a picnic table. There was a keyboardist playing and singing that night....Service was good. The food quality was pretty much okay - typical for a bar. Not gourmet. Prices low to average.More

There's a handful of restaurants, all quaint, on the St. Pete's Beach Sunset Way strip. One of the best in scenery, waitstaff and food is Woody's Waterfront. Our waitress, Rachel, was so considerate and understanding of our rookie status at Woody's, explaining the entire rundown...on the different items this non-pretentious waterfront lunch and dinner place offers. Her attention to us was so amazing, answering every question we had and substituting bread on a sandwich item for additional lettuce and onion. The fish both my wife and I had was super fresh, cooked to perfection and very plentiful. We would highly recommend it. And if you happen to get Rachel as a waitress, consider yourself very, very lucky.More

Just passing through and wanted to eat at the "fancy" restaurant across the street but needed reservations. Heard music playing and a sign that said Woody's Waterfront. We gave it a shot. Beautiful location, rowdy bar scene, live music- what's not to like! We ordered...the fish dinners and the fish was excellent - fresh and well prepared. Sides were just the usual. Had a cocktail that was truly a cocktail- good sized and made with sufficient alcohol. It was served in a plastic cup. Perfect! Woody's was twice as good at half the price as it's neighbor.More

Stopped in with friends to enjoy the Gulf inlet. They've had numerous places in the area for 15 years but never experienced Woody's. The waterside tables are composite wood and beautiful. We orders three orders of naked wings (sold out of Woody's breaded wings) and...the wings didn't disappoint. I ordered the clam strips which most likely frozen. Not very good. Gooey - not cooked enough. But that being said. No one goes to Woody's for the cuisine. The view is spectacular, the weather was perfect. The service was very good too. What's not to like with that criteria. Everyone needs to experience Woody's at least once every year. We try to take our guests there to see how beautiful the area is.More

No age limits. Family friendly. This is a cash only facility, no credit or debit cards. Watching the dolphins play during diner was awesome.
