Description: We are a local favorite thanks to our delicious food, "Old Florida" vibe, outstanding service and of course terrific views! We offer live music 5 days and week with two acts playing on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Karaoke is a great night to come to on Tuesdays! When you arrive you can sit yourself at any of our tables, from the outdoor patio, inside dining, or our very own TIKI ISLAND! Remember, if it's busy, it may take a bit longer for your made to order food, but where can you go and wait while sitting and drinking, listening to music or simply enjoying the views of the Manatee River!

We like Woody's because it is a great little place on the Manatee River. Accessable by boat, car, motorcycle, etc. Food is always good, love the homemade chips & burgers. There is always somekind of music and sitting out by the Tiki Bar is always fun too. The only bad thing I can think of is that their draft beer is never very cold. I always have to add ice :(

Woody's River Roo has excellent food, including the Ahai Tuna and coconut shrimp. Eating outside on the river is beautiful. Service is nice. Definitely recommend a trip out to Ellenton for the experience, skip the mall and just enjoy a Corona on the River!

Great site for outdoor eating. Friendly bar and grill that you can either drive to or boat two. Eat on their floating island or sit by the river.

It is so pleasant and peaceful to sit outside along the water....especially when we left the cold and snow behind in PA. There is live music. The sandwiches were delicious...loved the Grouper and chicken salad wrap.

We walked here from the Sleep Inn for dinner. Live entertainment was going on; Friday evening and crowded. We sat along a bar outside to have dinner; Bill took care of us quickly. We had the turkey wrap and scallops platter; hubby loved the scallops and my wrap and fries were very good as well. Only complaint...the beer from the outside tiki bar was barely cold. Lovely sunset for our dinner. Give Woody's a try if you are in the area!
