Was looking for a good steak dinner. Woody's was recommended by Holiday Inn. So glad. Nice atmosphere in dining room. Balsamic Filet melted in your mouth. They also have a 'sports bar' on the side which was nice before dinner. Waiting to return.

Friendly staff, nice atmosphere and delicious steak. The service was top notch and a nice variety on the menu. We visited during the Blue Suede Cruise car show and enjoyed the local atmosphere. A bit pricey for the portion size compared with other steak houses....More
