If you're a history buff or simply love stepping back in time...Or if you're like my sister and I and adore Downton Abbey....step into Woodlawn and be transported back in time.

“A real disappointment”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Bad food, and not even much at that. Five small tid-bits per person for $25 per person. Nice setting though
