Woody’s is a staple restaurant in Carmel. You can enjoy the patio outside on a nice day or the downstairs bar, and it is located just a few steps from downtown. I recently had the salmon salad and was very pleased with the flavor. The...More

We won't be here for a birthday party in a group. They even have Friday night meal specials. There is also a bar downstairs. This place is a real library that was built in the early nineteen hundreds. You can still see a lot of...More
