Big 12 weekend – Went to Woodrow's Friday night before the Big 12 Championship with my family and was very impressed with the food and service. Members of our family ranged in age from 6 to 61 yrs old and we all had a good time. You definately get your moneys worth on the food. There sampler platter is more than enough to feed 2 people and still have leftovers. You do have to find the hostess though to be seated. She was not at front like most restaurants/sports bars. All in all I would come back for the experience again.
First time go there and it is great – Read reviews from citysearch and thought going there for their crawfish special. Service is quick except when seating, no one helps. Waitress comes to us within couple minutes and bring drinks right away. recommend us happy hour specials. very nice. crawfish is great and spicy. We also had a chich philli cheese and it is the best chick sandwich we ever had. Food comes to table quick. Waitress comes by a few time during meal to check on us and replace filled bucket (alot crawfish shells). We had good time there. Will go again.
BAD Service – We met friends here on a Saturday afternoon -- nothing major going on in the sporting world other than the NCAA tourney had just started. The deck was okay and the sound was quiet enough that you could have a conversation without yelling at each other. The food was decent, once we actually got it. Our waitress was AWFUL -- she'd ignore us for a while, then finally come over and get our drink order and then reappear with it 10-15 minutes later. The place was NOT busy! We ordered an appetizer sampler platter -- half hour later she brings us a tray of crawfish. At least she comped our food. BAD SERVICE!
Woodrow's is Aight – Been there on Sunday's to watch more NFL games than my brain could handle. Tried the mudbugs and there were decent....not a place AT ALL to meet women though...to bad cuz it is a party type atmosphere during the games, but what do expect with 90% dudes only in attendance......I still go....
cold beer – Authentic Cajun food and PLENTY of appetizers to go along with the city's COLDEST beer. Best college football location in town. Geaux Tigers! Isn't a great problem to have when your beer is delivered with ice in the bottle! Very casual and the city's largest deck. See you there!
good cold beer, not so good food – Great place to watch the game and have cold beer. The food was a little less desirable - but this is an 'ice-house' so I should have guessed about the food quality.
"Party," used as a verb – Woodrows is fine for a casual happy hour, or for people unaquainted with the benefits of a skilled bartender. It's a place for bottled beer and people who still use "party" as a verb, well into their 20s. The best patio in town is The Social -- Hot bartenders, cool breeze outside, DJ music, delicious cocktails and real pints. The big leather chaise lounge by the front door may be the most coveted place to sit in all of Houston nightlife.
