My husband and I have visited Woodberry in December and in July. This restaurant is truly one of, if not the best dining experiences I've ever had. From the location in the newly renovated section on Clipper Park, to the exterior eating and fire pit, to the dimly-lit, vintage rustic interior, it is unique and fun. The servers are very knowledgeable about the food and drink they serve without being pretentious or too "foodie". They wear plaid shirts and jeans and fun aprons.

Everything is locally sourced, farm raised, organic, and/or made in house. That is what brings us the 2.5 hours from Bucks County, Pa. You can taste the care and attention in the food.

Bar drinks are superb, coffee is amazing, the burger is the best you will eat, and anything seasonal is a treat. Enjoy!

I've lived in the Baltimore area since the 1990s and really can't say I've been to a better restaurant. The ambiance, service and most of all food is unbeatable.
Everything is organic and I've never had a bad meal (been there about six times now).
Although the menu changes regularly, my husband always gets the chicken and biscuits which seems to be a staple. HUGE portion.
I like to change it up and most recently had the winter vegetable pot pie which was excellent. If you've never been, it's a must do...just make sure you make reservations FAR in advance.

Scrumptious food; fascinating choices and combinations, beautiful setting. I had humus with roasted peppers and braised skirt steak with root vegetables. Everything was delicious. Meat was slightly fatty, but I think that has more to do with cut. It was falling apart good. Wine excellent. Service very good. Dining room is warm and captivating. They go a little overboard on the "homespun" quirky flannel presentation, but I get it... Oh, and we walked in and got a table-- unheard of! Guess we lucked out.

1. Your website directions need to stress NOT to turn on Clipper Mill Road, which is immediately prior to Clipper Park Road. If you turn there, you will go over the river and through the woods.
2. You MUST remove all of the very dangerous fraying and curled area rugs in the main passageways by the entrance before someone falls and sues you for grevious personal injuries. Seriously.
3. You need to comply w/ ADA regs. by installing grab rails in your unisex restrooms so that disabled patrons can use the toilet. Again, seriously.

Now for the good news: Our party of five thoroughly enjoyed Sunday brunch. We all sampled each others' orders and all agreed EVERYTHING tasted wonderful. This included the morning "flatbread" (like a pizza), kitchen omelette w/ side of country bacon and the shrimp salad roll w/ pickles and h/m potato chips. Mimosa and bloody mary drinks were delish, but pricey ($11 and $12 for champagne flutes). French press coffee was perfectly brewed.

Service was excellent, w/ knowledgeable and pleasant wait staff all over our room, which was not as noisy as the main, more open dining area. Despite a busy day, we were not rushed at all. I can't wait to return for dinner some time soon now that I know how to get there!
