Was not impressed – I have lived in Houston 16 years and right down the street from Big Woodrows for 4 years. I decieded to go Saturday 3-31-2012 and try the famous crawfish I hear so much about on the internet with my girlfreind. Right off the get go the waitress was not very freindly, we asked for ice tea and got horribly watered down ice tea. The waitress asked if we would like a pitcure of water instead when we asked to take the tea back and get us coke ( didn't think that was funny). The crawfish was cold and tasted fishy, they charged extra for the small corn and potatos you get with the crawfish. We didn't finish our meal and left around 3 lbs of crawfish on the table. I am sure the place is a great place to have fun with freinds and drink beer, as for the food service I will go elsewhere.
Epitome of Texas Goodness – Woodrow's is a great place to just go, drink some delicious drinks and eat some yummy barfood. Highly suggested, and worth checking out.
Great Place for a Friday Night! – I just moved into the area and this is just a really great friendly bar. I have no negative opinions about Woodrows, except their are too many tables!
Great for Tiger Fans!! – Love this place on LSU Gameday. However, I am finding that it is becoming more and more crowded with UT fans and they're starting to demand that the Tv's be turned to the UT games even though it is an LSU bar with LSU fans already sitting there. Other than that though I usually enjoy everything there.
unbelievable food and great service with a smile! – I was there about 2 months and have been going back ever since. On my first visit i was told a thirty minute wait, I almost left cause im not a very patient person but than god i didnt leave! it was simply amazing from the food to the service. Ive eaten some of the tastiest crawfish at this place. I cant wait to go back...mmmmm
Good TImes, Good Food – Woodrows is a great place to go and unwind, the beer is cold, the food is hot, and there is most likly something of interest on the tvs. I have been frequenting Big Woodrow's for the Crawfish for as long as i can remember, and althought the priceing is average (at $4.99 a pound) the quality is not lacking! The other food on the menu is great as well, we always start off with an appatizer of fried pickels and gator, move on to the Crawfish, and finish every thing off by munching on some texas hushpuppies. The over all atmosphere is quite unique. Entertaining and friendly, If one ever has a problem the waitstaff or managers are willing to help in any way they can. The decore never ceses to amaze me, every time i walk in there is something new on the walls. (every thing from new specials and new neons to a dress and other random bits of clothing.) I would highly recomend going to Big Woodrows to any one who loves to have a good time, enjoy good food, and be around real good people.
Response to this Review - Beware of waitress, she'll tag extra money on your receipt – An effort to correct this situation has been made. The employee in question is no longer with Woodrow's and the customer has been compensated. This event is not an every day occurrence at Woodrow's and not acceptable. We want our customers to be happy and come back to enjoy our hospitality!!!
Beware of waitress, she'll tag extra money on your receipt – I would have given a rating of 4 stars because they did have amazing crawfish (even at $5 a pound), but I just checked my bank account and noticed the waitress tacked another $2 or $3 on my what my signed receipt shows. I spoke to my friend that was with me and she said the waitress did this to her also.
The waitress was very friendly and even sat at our table and ate crawfish after her shift was over so I was a little surpised to know she did this. Her name is "Leslee".
I'm going to speak to the manager later because this is unethical and I believe they should be aware of this.
A good sports bar for a brew and some crawfish, even if you aren't a sports nut. – In Short
Big Woodrow's, as it's called, draws a business crowd during the week for happy hour, and a raucous bunch of students and college alumni on big game days. Within the bar's weathered boards and bayou-style exterior is an efficient operation that provides cold, affordable beer and some of the best Cajun bar food around. Along with sports on more than 30 televisions, Woodrow's adds live entertainment, karaoke on Thursdays and TV trivia into the mix without compromising its sports-bar status.
Great Deals All Week Long – Where else in Houston can you find cheap draft beer on an outside deck on a Saturday night or $3.50 Grey Goose or Crown Royal on a Friday night. My friends and I usually start here to pre-party before heading "out" but we rarely ever end up leaving the Woodrow's Deck. It may be a sports bar but quite a few attractive ladies show up here also. Even if you are not an LSU football fan, Saturday's in the fall when LSU is on, this is a site that you have got to check out....it is crazy. During the spring there is not a better place intown to eat crawfish at then Big Woodrow's deck. The attractive female wait staff are friendly unlike the girls at other snobby bars. If you arrive for happy hour, do not expect to leave till late
