I love Woody's for lunch. Best chicken salad sandwich ever! Pulled chicken, not chunks...and fresh sliced avocado. All their food is good but I think dinners are overpriced. Bar area is small, and on weekends is mostly couples.

Everything was good that we ordered but a bit overpriced. We ordered a few small plates and sat at the bar. Friendly wait staff.

Besides the great menu and good service, I will always remember Woody for the charitable role he played during Sandy storm - he supplied local residents, rescue works with meals for everyone. He was the Sea Bright relief center. Thank you Woody.

After driving for 8 hours and finally arriving in Sea Bright we were ravenous. Woody's was very close to the house we rented so we decided to take our chances without a reservation. The front of the house staff is wonderful, wait staff fabulous and soft shell crabs amazing. Great wine list as well. Definitely would encourage folks to eat... More

Being local to the area, we visit Woody's once or twice a month. The food is always fresh and the service exceptional. They are willing to work with you since I have a family member with dietary requirements. The menu ranges is offerings, both style and price. For an affordable meal, go for the fish tacos. Or if you want... More

I was there last weekend with 3 friends..We ordered a wide variety of items from the menu, Calamari, Lobster pasta, soup, and scallops. Each one was prepared well. My only complaint is that the drinks were not very good. Service was excellent as well

It was my first time at Woodys I never knew anybody that went there either. I chose this because of the trip advisor reviews. My husband and I were not disappointed all. We expected a long wait because they do not accept reservations, but we were surprised when after 15 minutes our table was ready. The atmosphere was casual and... More
