Stopped by Woody's for lunch and stayed for a few hours. Woody's new deck provides the best outdoor dining experience in Carmel.

In Carmel area for baseball and didn't get out till 9 pm. Stumbled into Woody's thinking it was cute from the outside and was as equally impressed on the inside. It was not overly crowded due to time of night. Our waiter was very attentive and our overall experience was extremely pleasant. We split a tasty tuna appetizer, a wedge... More

I had the fish and chips, which I often like to try. It was tilapia, but prepared differently than I had had before. The fillet was brushed with egg... More

We happened by the building while enjoying Carmel for the weekend. Decided to go back for dinner and we were glad we did. The wait staff are professional, friendly and efficient. The food was very good and came in large portions. If you are visiting Carmel you should stop in for a meal!

Went here for lunch and it was a good meal and nice atmosphere. BUT wait Woody's just put a new deck out in front right on Main St. It looks like a lot of fun and would love to hear some reviews on the new outdoor seating.

We had dinner here on our way to an event in Carmel. What a surprise to find such a quaint little place. Ryan, our waiter absolutely enhanced our experience. He greeted us with a smile and a casual easy going style. He made some great suggestions. My friend had the prime rib and I had the fish and chips. Both... More
