First of all, we are big fans of their restaurant in Bluffton, we think it's a little better. We enjoyed the fresh fish great BLTs. Easy to park.

A nice place for a quick and casual meal. There are lots of options on the menu and way too many fried items. If you are looking for oysters, there are many better places. Captain Woody's only has Gulf oysters and not their specialty. By far the best are their fish sandwiches - go for the simply fish either grilled... More

Decided to check out the Old Bluffton area and it is turning out to be a great stop. You have to look for it but it is worth the effort. Burgers are cooked to order and done right.

Had a lovely lunch here today with my husband. We'll be skipping dinner tonight because the amount of food is plenty to keep us both full this evening. We shared the fried onion rings, check out the photo it's a large amount and they were hot crispy and delicious. Husband had fried cod and chips dinner. He said the cod... More

We went to Captain Woody's on a Monday evening in the off-season. The food was good and our waiter was very attentive. Over all good service.

We were all hungry for supper on a Friday evening. Parking was full near the building so we had to park in an auxiliary lot which was awkward & we had to walk through a whole bunch of heavy cigarette smoke to get inside. Now for the good news. We got a table for 5 in less than 10 minutes.... More

Went to Captain Woody's on a Monday night in the off-season, and were seated immediately. It was a comfortable place, and our waiter was friendly and very attentive. We ordered a variety of seafood dishes, from crab cakes to fish and grits, and everyone was pleased with their meal. Captain Woody's seems to be the kind of place locals would... More

We ate here when we found Oyster Factory closed for renovations. I wanted to like it but was disappointed. My fish tacos had an earthy taste. My husband was happy with his fish sandwich. Waitress was very sweet and attentive. There are usually much better options on the island.

A group of six out-of-town friends on vacation here selected Captain Woody's as the evening's dinner destination. A very good choice indeed! We were seated promptly and attended to just as quickly. The dinner menu contained a wide array of options to suit most any taste. From house-recommended chef-inspired entrees to fried seafood platters, salads, and sandwiches, there was something... More
