Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Great food, laid back atmosphere and a bunch of food. If you are a light eater you can easily share a plate. My eight month old enjoyed the live music and flirtinf with our sweet waitress. ;) We will return!

“Good food, uncomfortable seats”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

I love the pulled BBQ chicken at Woodlands. The sides are also very good. But the backless bench seats are very uncomfortable, especially for people with bad backs.

“Tired dining venue with benches and tables that do not move and average food and service.”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Dined here during our recent trip to Blowing Rock. I read the reviews and went anyway hoping for the best. I will not rate BBQ because there is such a variance between the many different places that prepare BBQ. My rule is just do not order BBQ up north, far left coast or upper Midwest. That rule has served me well. I have had BBQ in all over the south from Carolinas to Texas to Oklahoma, from Memphis to St Louis and everybody does it different- so no rating the BBQ other than to say that I thought the RIbs were what they did best. The remainder of the food other that the BBQ was just average- sorta of a fried food heaven-for sure not a farm to kitchen type of place.
Other than just being an average restaurant, the tables in the entire place were afixed to the floor and so were the benches. Perhaps this makes it easier to clean up or keep the patrons from moving the benches around to enjoy the regularly schedule pickers and performers. Note that we scheduled our time to arrive about 20 minutes before the time the website listed for the music to start. Upon inquiry, we were advised that the actual time was 30 minutes later than posted on the website. They were starting as we were departing. Prices were ok.
In summary, next trip, we will place a pick up order of ribs and get the rest of our food elsewhere for an enjoyable picnic or dining at the condo.

“A must try while in the Boone/Blowing Rock area”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We came on a busy Friday night. The place was packed and there was live music (one guy with a guitar or piano). The ambient noise level was pretty loud so not the place for a great conversation. The food was exactly what you would expect from the name of the restaurant. Loved our pork bbq and hush puppies! Okra was delicious as well. I'd take a pass on some of the other sides if I went again, veggies a bit overcooked. However that doesn't take away much.
