Grab a drink, listen to the band , and have a good time. Do not order any food or you will be disappointed. Everything I've had over the years has been average at best.More

Driving to the Ellenton Outlet Mall, I looked over and saw the place I wanted to try for lunch, Woodys River Roo. What a cool place. Anytime I can sit on the river, listen to music sitting under a thatch roof table that is clean,...More
