Woody's has a nice canal location and offers a nice selection of bar food. Service was friendly and efficient. My wife approved of their Pina Colada, and they offer local craft beer on tap.

As with most restaurants on the island, the food is mediocre. But, nobody wants to get involved with the traffic jam coming and going to here. It is a hit or miss type of situation with their food.

Yes, you can go by boat, we saw several people arrive by boat. However, recommend you Google map showing canal access. We are not natives, and unfamiliar with all canal layouts.
