The crowd was much older than anticipated. Great place for a meal with your parents but not for a date.

Seating location for an important business conversation was perfect. Timing of service was perfect. Special requests were honored and smoothly handled. Food was great. One of the guests said he had scheduled an additional meeting with a Board member, who had suggested Woodlands, as well.

We arrived before the dinner rush so atmosphere was quiet. The food was amazing. I usually get their pork chop with sauce which is wonderful. My husband had their fish and it was very good too. Woodlands is one of our favorite restaurants.
