Woody's is the new version of the 1980's Ichabod's near the beach in Sea Bright. The two-level space still has the light wood and exposed brick but everything has been freshened up and there is a creative updated menu. We tried the salad special, a green salad with shrimp, feta cheese, watermelon and pineapple, a surprising combination which was delicious.... More

Richard......Thank you very much for the review. We're glad you had an enjoyable lunch. I just wanted you to be aware that you posted on Woody's Ocean Hut which was on the beach (snack bar) and destroyed by Super Storm Sandy. Woody's Ocean Grille is thankfully still in tact and that's where you dined. Thanks again for your review. Chris... More

Had lunch at Woodys in Tinton Falls, formerly Charlie Brown's, Gertrude Brown's and most recently Moose's. After 40 years of enduring the same out dated decor the new management did a total gut and changing the decor to an updated, clean modern look. The bar area looked very different and will look forward to checking it out. We sat in... More

Beautiful interior. Friendly service. Nice drinks. Disappointing menu. Most dishes are Mexican, fried and unhealthy. Upstairs often feels like a kindergarten.

We have eaten here a few times in the summer and then the Fall and early Winter. Great beer list and wonderful Mahi Mahi tacos!! My husband loves the pulled pork sandwich. Will return

The food here is less exciting then the atmosphere. I had the shrimp and lobster bisque and it was alright a little too thick for a bisque. I also had the pulled pork sliders and as a fan of pulled pork I could tell it wasn't made in house and was right from the freezer to the microwave. My husband... More

My wife and I stopped for lunch at Woodys while visiting the Jersey Shore. A victim of Hurricane Sandy, this place has been completely rebuilt, with more than adequate parking which is important in this small seaside town. Modern, open and airy, we were warmly welcomed and promptly seated. We were both hot and hungry after a morning of driving... More

Woody's came highly recommended. Seating was quick. Service was slow, my food was lukewarm and it took forever to get the check. Not a good experience.

We had lunch yesterday at the Woody's snack/bar restaurant on the public beach in Sea Bright. It was disgusting and I wouldn't consider eating there again. In fact, I don't know how it hasn't been closed by the department of health. First, I did not see a single person preparing our food wearing gloves - everything was touched with bare... More
