We stopped in for lunch on a whim and it was worth it. Generous portioned salads made with fresh ingredients and delicious. The soup, we had the Caribbean chowder, was really good. We would definitely go here again. Thanks for an awesome lunch!!

Woody's is a true salad lover's dream. Their salads are always fresh and made to order. You can tell they always use high quality ingredients and dressings. Their greek salad is perfectly proportioned.The Chopped Tuna Woody salad is a another favorite with a delicious dressing to top it off with. When the weather is right, their made-from-scratch soups go perfectly... More

Why wouldn't a place proclaiming famous salads have good salads?? Woodys has a variety of salads to choose from but they've also got an ever changing selection of soups to go with them. Not a salad eater? No worries, grab a delicious sandwich instead. Overall happy with what I've had there

For over 30 years I've been eating Woody's Greek salads...now chopped & SO yummy, with perfect potato salad in the middle. There are other salads, sandwiches & wraps, but it's always been their scrumptious Greek salad for me! And their soups...made fresh every day with the best ingredients...Armenian Lentil, Lemon Chicken Feta, Lasagna, Country Greek Tomato, Italian Wedding...3 soup options... More

It WAS a Greek salad, but not like Papas Famous Greek Salad. This one was good but still lacked that makes a Greek salad great. We tried it for lunch, busy little place and the service was excellent. Still looking for the perfect Greek Salad to replace the now closed Pappas.

I work next door so I eat here a lot and I absolutely love Woody's! This cafe makes everything in house and they have awesome lunch and brunch options. Their soups are simply the most flavorful and rich creations! I could eat their Armenian lentil and chicken lemon feta soup forever! Their salads are awesome with generous portions. Their sandwiches... More

Woody's has been a south Tampa lunch staple for decades with good reason. They make a great Tampa-style greek salad (served on top of a scoop of potato salad) as well as homemade soups and sandwiches. The pick-2 soup, salad, 1/2 sandwich option is nice. The lemon chicken feta soup is my favorite but other choices rotate on the menu.... More
