“On thin ice”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

Woody's Taphouse Braeside is a neighbourhood pub. Braeside and the surrounding communities are 30-45 years old and hence the clientele spans a broad range of ages. We'd not be called "regulars" but we do go 3-5 times a month, usually for a meal. Sometimes we meet friends and family at Woody's. We've always been comfortable there and the food is decent "pub-fare". Now it seems that the bartender thinks that loud heavy metal music suits the clientele. The waitress does not know the menu. One appetizer is delivered, the second is forgotten. There are three other pubs within a 2 km radius. We'll likely give Woody's one more chance and after that, if patterns continue, we'll drop in on the others even if Woody's happens to be the closest and most convenient.

“Is our money not good enough”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

Have visited this pub on several occasions and the service is usually slow, one shouldn't have to keep making eye contact for 5 minutes with the staff for them to serve your table, and it was not busy. Requested menus twice and before she remembered, I think seeing them on the table she was serving jogged her memory. After seeing other guests getting served plates of food in the same area, frequent visits to the bunch of guys and disappearing to the restaurant order system for over 5 minutes, we chose to pay and leave. We will not return to Woody's again and be ignored.

Tried to contact management to discuss how terrible the food is here, but there is no easy way to do it. Cooks have no sense as to what edible food is. Finally writing off this place as a neighborhood pub worth partaking in. Don't even want to get into service or price issues, which they also have! The food alone is enough to drive us away. Zero chance I would ever recommend this place to anyone.
