This will probably be quite a boring review, but I can only say, it was ok, nothing more. Not fantastic. Service was slow, obviously was the end of a busy lunchtime service. After we made our minds up we seemed to wait for quite a...More

Great American diner menu in a really friendly place. Nothing too much trouble and all burgers can be done "your" way

Transport yourself to a 1950's American beach café. Fantastic varied menu, I love their Frings, if you can't decide between fries or onion rings, you get 1/2 and 1/2

We used to love coming here but on the last two occasions (came back again as thought it might have been a blip) the breakfast has been substandard. What happened to the fluffy American pancakes? Why have you reduced them to a third of the...More

Step back in time into Woodies Diner, the authentic American beach-side style diner with all the retro touches to take you back to the days of Grease, Elvis and Buddy Holly! You'll feel like you're in a film set surrounded by 50's and 60's American memorabilia - from the jukebox to the "walk don't walk" sign, retro surfboards and classic diner décor. There's even palm trees out front to give that full beach side diner feel! Think Beach Boys meets Happy Days and you're at Woodies. Our waiters and waitresses will serve you all those diner favourites - thick shakes, soda floats, burgers, ribs, steaks and sundaes. Pop in at the weekend for breakfast and fill up on a pancake stack or breakfast burrito. Thinking of visiting Woodies' Diner?
