Had lunch with friends at Woodys. Waterside tables on quiet canal. The food was very good. We ate coconut shrimp wraps and shrimp tacos. Fries were good, potato salad was not bad, but not my style. Meal for 2 with drinks ran about $30. Felt...More

We didn't get our first menu choice because they were out, but thankfully that was the worst of our experience. The food that we ordered was delicious and the service was not the fastest, but pretty good.

This is the former Double Nickel and a locals place. Good selection of beverages, decent food but the restaurant was not at all busy and the server just didn’t seem to be on his game.

We went for lunch today and they do a nice business. Had the Naw'leans Bayou shrimp wrap and the Baja California Chicken wrap which were both delicious. Great service and an awesome view of the boats in the canal. Will definitely be eating here again...More

We have supported Woody’s for years as locals on Pine Island. We especially like to support our local restaurants during the off-season. However, Woody’s Waterside has a habit of taking their phone off the hook, making it impossible to place take-out orders. After calling the...More

Just opening Monday morning when we popped in to kick off our vacation on Pine Island. Great waterfront location, good service and cold beers. Love the “Woodys” story. We too had a lab much like Woody! We could relate. We nibbled on crab bites and...More

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.
