not so good

3-1-2013 yesterday was I went here to get the great food that I used to get here.Boy was I disappointed that was the worst food.First had to send the tea back it was awful then had to send dirty knifes back the melba toast at salad bar must have been months out of date.Then to top it all off was the price and they add the tip to your bill I like to leave the waitress the tip myself.Will not go back.The next time I want a good steak I will go to the Longhorn or Outback.

Good food for the money

I have been going to the Woodshed for years since I live in the area. Those who say it is too expensive don't bother to understand what they are paying for. The fact is that most restaurants in the area charge more for an entree than the Woodshed does for the entree and all the fixings including salad bar. Recent changes in local ABC laws now allow them to sell beer and wine on premises so you don't have to brown bag any more. As for the quality of the meat, the Woodshed meat is USDA graded choice or higher. When a restaurant brags that they serve Angus beef, this says nothing about the quality of the beef. Admittedly the service can be less than you may expect sometimes but you can deal with that by not leaving a big tip. And if you really like the onion and tomato sandwiches, then why are you complaining about having to pay a couple of bucks for one. Did you like them because they were free or do you really like them? Prices are going up everywhere. Get over it. I read one review where the gentleman said his filet was ordered medium well and then grossly overcooked. Are you kidding? A medium well filet is already ruined anyway. I say give them a try and be fair about your comparisons. You will be pleased.

No Good/ Woodshed Stanley

The supermarket quality steaks are no where near worth the price you pay for them. The service and atmosphere are OK, but the price vs quality of food is a joke at your expense.

Woodshed Steakhouse Stanley NC

This review has been written by someone that knows high quaility food, and fine dining.

After reading several reviews we decided to try the woodshed steak house in stanley nc.

The service was fine and the establishment was clean.

The Food was not as good as everyone claims. Most of the reviews are comming from locals because this is restaurant doesn't have any other restaurants near it that serve steak.

The Price of the meal for 2 people exceeded $70 which is outrageous for what we got.

If you are a steak lover and enjoy really good steaks don't waste your time or money at the woodshed, Instead go to another place that has really high quailty food such as Morton's or Captial Grill just 30 miles from this restaurant. You'll be glad you did and will appreciate this review.

Low Value/ negative rating

My wife and I went there yesterday to celebrate our 43 anniversary. We had been there several times before years ago. This time was a total disappointment. First we found out they have not coffee; just something called Sanka decaf that taste like colored water. Also they have no wine list, but do allow byob (not their fault, a town reg.) The major complaint was the value of the steak served, a 5 oz filet was almost $23! This may have been the least expensive cut on the menu and smallest in size; no more that 2 inches in diameter. My medium well was way over cooked. My wife and I swapped steaks since she liked hers cooked more. Also gone are the once famous tomato sandwiches on the salad bar. You can get one now for an extra $1.95!! I would not recommend going there even if someone else is paying. Did I mention they do not have Coffee?

Great steak and great service!

First time visitor to the Woodshed and had my reservations at first...but they were quickly erased when I sat down. Great Filet and Prime Rib. We had a male server named Jeff who really took care of us. The combined service and steak was top shelf. Can't wait to go back!



Local Tradition

You haven't ever had a steak if you haven't eaten at The Woodshed! This place has been around a long time, and is always consistantly spectacular.

The Best Steak ANYWHERE

You go to the WoodShed for steak. You don't go for white tablecloths and snooty waiters wearing tuxedos. I have been going to the WoodShed for 15 years and have never had a steak that was not cooked exactly as I ordered. The restauant does not serve alcohol, but if you brown bag your own they will give you a set-up. Last valentines day we had a minimum 2 hour wait. But there is a reason people put up with it....The steak IS that good! To avoid the wait get there really early or go on a weekday. Don't forget your tomato and onion on wheat sandwich I love 'em. The atmosphere is rustic. Wood floors, a toy train running on tracks overhead, and booths much like you would find at a shoney's. It is pricey. For a couple with and appetizer it could be $60 plus tip.

Great Food - Good Service

Our group gathers at the Woodshed at least once a year around February. They don't take reservations after the Christmas season, but said there would be no trouble seating us. Even though there was quite a crowd there the last time we went...I think we were seated within a reasonable amount of time. My husband and I went a little early to get our groups name on the waiting list and I am sure that helped. The food was fantastic....We all love to eat here because of the excellent food. The name of the restaurant realistically discribes the atmosphere as it is a rustic setting. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful, but most of all we enjoy the food.

Service makes it not worth going to

We travelled an hour to get to the Woodshed to celebrate my grandfather's 80th birthday. We called the night before because there are 10 of us and were told that while they were out of reservations, they would be able to accomodate us. When we arrived, they put us at two different tables. When questioned, they said that they could not move the tables because they were nailed down, which they were not. Then we were told it was a liability because of the overhead hanging lights. When the manager came to speak to us, we were appalled at how rudely he treated us. I suppose that the Woodhouse is doing enough business that $200 isn't a big loss and they can treat the customers rudely. I know that I won't return there and I will warn as many people as possible that they shouldn't either.

We just redesigned! Do you like it?
