The food was good, but the prices were extremely high. I am glad we went once, but I wouldn't go there again due to the high prices.

Try the woods for dinner, get a taxi and make your reservation early for a quaint dinner. The horse carriage will take about 20 minutes to get there, it's $7 per person each way. We enjoyed the great service and good number of food options....More

We had a conference meal here. The service was great and the food exceptional. The pecan ice cream ball with fudge sauce (don't know the official name) was exceptional. Of course, half the draw is the atmosphere itself in the main hall with two fire...More

A friend and I decided to come here, but we did not have a whole lot of money, so we split an appetizer, entrée, and dessert and it filled us up! We got the Lobster Mac-N-Cheese (appetizer), Pan Seared Venison Medallions (entrée), and Profiteroles with...More

how close is it to Mission Point?

Response from GHKellie | Property representative |
Woods is not near Mission Point at a;;. We are located more toward the center of the island near the airport and Stonecliff.
How do customers hail the taxi for The Woods, and where does this taxi pick up? Are strollers (folded up) permitted on the taxi?
