“Great food, always leftovers.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

The "Woods" restaurant is one of our favorite places to eat. The Friday fish is Fantastic. My grandchildren beg to go there for breakfast. Again leftovers of chocolate chip pancakes,sausage patties,ham and eggs. Thursday night is rib night and they are second to none.
Staff is friendly and helpful. I can't remember the last time I had room for dessert. Just too much food.

“Good food and LOTS of it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012

This is a very family-oriented restaurant, and they have a varied menu. If you come for Sunday breakfast or lunch, be prepared to wait as it is very popular! The are not open on Saturday night usually.

“Nice sit down restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

Years of experience count and this place is a cornerstone for Waupaca and the mall. The mall is a joke but this diamond in the rough is a pleasant dining experience. Order anything. I've heard bad 'incidents' but I know that they could have been resolved, so ask for the owner if you have any doubt. I've eaten here frequently for 40+ years.

“Best Breakfast and food in the area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

We have eaten here quite a few times. The food is always great. I would definitely have breakfast or an other meal if I was close to the Woods. The wait staff is very attentive and all of the employees are hard workers.

“"Wood" Not Really Recommend”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2011

Friday night and must try the traditional Wisconsin fish fry...after about a 10 minute wait (as the place was full) we got seated. Service was extremely slow. Took about 15 or more minutes just to get the drink orders. Then just as long to get the drinks, including plain ice water. They had a nice variety of fish on the menu, including local fish. Unfortunately the broiled haddock came literally swimming on top a layer of melted margarine and the fish had a heavy coating of something orange, maybe paprika (it added no flavor). Dinner companions fried fish was fresh but the oil it was fried in tasted old. It's a shame such fresh fish was ruined by poor culinary skills.
