I have driven by this place hundreds of times and never thought to try it. We finally stopped in and it was worth it. Food was great and the menu was a little more elevated than we thought it would be, which was a pleasant...More

I've lived in Carmel for 24 years and I finally went to Woody's. It was fantastic. The grilled chicken without the bun was great so was the grilled asparagus. The creme brulee was just the right size to satisfy my sweet tooth. The staff was...More

We won't be here for a birthday party in a group. They even have Friday night meal specials. There is also a bar downstairs. This place is a real library that was built in the early nineteen hundreds. You can still see a lot of...More

This was not the dining experience we expected. We arrived about 6:45 on a Saturday and were told there would be a 10 minute wait. Fortunately, it was a mild evening and we took a seat on the only bench outside. The other option seemed...More
