The staff was friendly and helpful, the food was great, and the beer and wine hit the spot. We would definitely return if we find ourselves in Orono again.

It's a bar with some seating and a pool table. I have the sirloin tip salad - tips were good, salad was basic but fresh. My son had the pork belly noodle bowl which sounded a bit better than it tasted, according to him. It looked good.

Woodmans is a downtown favorite right at the key intersection of town on US Route 2. They have added sidewalk dining for the warm season. (Actually even though its Maine it is supposed to be mid 70's Wednesday October 19th) This is a great place to meet friends and have some great food and an evening of enjoyment.

I cannot say much about the food as we were more there for the bar portion. They had a wonderful selection, a band, it was PACKED (homecoming.....) just had a really great time!

This is a small restaurant and we visited for dinner on a Sunday evening. Check their hours because we arrived just after they opened. It is right across the street from a local beer brewery where they offer tours at that location. The meal, beer and service was excellent. If you are near Orono, you should give this restaurant a...

A friend took us to Woodman's several years ago, and we were impressed. Since in the many times we've returned, always a good choice. Bar service is usually available, with friendly and attentive staff. Only drawback is that in a college town, it is often crowded to the point of painful waits and lots of noise. But early dinners have... More

One of the more 'upmarket' places to eat in Orono, so it wasn't exactly cheap. However we had a very nice meal and the staff were all very pleasant and obliging. Worth a visit

For over a year we have said, we really want to try Woodmans. But every time we drove by, people were waiting for tables-we didn't want to wait... but this past Saturday we finally decided to do it and we are so glad we did! At 7:30 on a Saturday-there was a wait time-we were quoted an hour but was... More

If you live in Orono or are passing through, you must be sure not to miss the Woodman's experience. This restaurant/watering hole is at the heart of Orono, both physically and socially. It is where the students meet up, where the profs come to confer, and where the locals like to come for their dinner dates. The food is incredible... More
