We have eaten and shared cocktails at Southwoods since it's inception and unfortunately everything has gone down hill. If you are on a lunch hour you will not make it back to work in time. The staff is friendly but consistently sabotages your order either ordering you the wrong item, "forgetting" to ask the kitchen leave off the mushrooms, or... More

Visited with my gf and her 8 year old. Looked out dated when we walked in but the staff and food was nothing but amazing. I'd visit this place every visit. Simply amazing.

We decided to try this restaurant since it was close to our hotel. I looked it up on Trip Advisor and usually don't go the restaurants with this low of a rating, but we decided to give it a try. The special for the evening was steak. We both ordered it medium. I like mine medium-well, but decided in a... More

Walked in for an early dinner to a terrible smell & very hot/stuffy entrance. No one even acknowledged us, so after quite a few minutes of trying to make eye contact with someone on staff, we just walked out. They likely didn't even notice, sadly.

We had a delicious dinner here this past week. The menu is very large with lots of choices. The atmosphere is "diner-style" with booths around the perimeter. The bar area is separate. The service was excellent as it was not very busy. We were very happy with our selections for dinner. This is not an upscale place, but a down... More

We were looking for a sit down restaurant for breakfast and stumbled upon this place and glad we did. I got the Vegetarian Omelet with green pepper, mushrooms,, onions and Cheddar cheese and hash browns for $7.99. I was able to substitute a pancake for toast. My husband got the Supreme Omelet - it was stuffed with bacon, ham, tomatoes,... More

I guess everything has to have a catchy name nowadays. I don't know what makes this a 'Chicago burger' but I can tell you that all the burgers we've had here are first rate'. Fresh, hand made monster patties cooked precisely as ordered. The Chicago comes with Blu cheese. bacon and a slice of swiss to hold everything together. My... More

Service was fabulous, thank you. The soup was delicious, chicken tenders outstanding, fries were so good and the cheeseburger was cooked perfectly. Lots of food, price is very reasonable.

The fish and chips were very good. We got the whitefish and were well-pleased. The chips (fries) were hot and crispy. The server was great.

We went to Southwards Restaurant with friends after church for brunch. The wait staff is uniformly hospitable, the food tasty, and reasonably priced.
