small, great atmosphere...our waitress, Cat, was lovely, and friendly...excellent service. It is in one of the original Carnegie libraries, and the decor reflects that...real books on the walls that you can read while waiting for your meal.

We ate on the patio and loved it. Enough shade and had ceiling fans to help keep you cool. Menu has a wide variety of items. Service was great. Food presentation and taste was good too! We will be back!

We go to Woody's, downstairs from The Library, quite often. It's a more casual setting and the food is out of the same kitchen as the more pricey restaurant upstairs. They always have a nice variety of beers on tap, and several TVs, if you...More

Woody's has above average food and a great location. The problem is the three times I've tried to eat there this year I have been turned away. I am not sure if they have issues with their staff or what but it seems they can't...More

We - two sets of parents of that particular age group (well, 3/4 of us) - went for lunch on a Monday so did not get a chance to enjoy the library ambiance upstairs- we ate on the partially enclosed ground/sidewalk level floor - but...More
