    Brunch is great here. Awesome service. Loved the prosciutto and biscuit with eggs. Solid tap list, cocktails and there's oyster happy hour every day from 5-6 pm where you can snag $2 oysters.

    Brunch was mediocre, my Dutch Baby tasted of pork which was really odd, the hollandaise on the Benedict was thin & lacked flavor. Moderately expensive too!

    Delightful classic American fare: the fried chicken and mashed potatoes were very tasty, and the Demara cocktail was perfect. Pecan pie and the black cod are also hella tasty.

    Beer and bottle list was surprisingly impressive. They had Pliny the Elder on draft and Russian River sours in bottles.

    The pancakes are thick like biscuits and the coffee is bomb. Plus the atmosphere is one of a kind.

    Overrated and overpriced. Wait staff is aloof and inattentive, especially for the price point of the establishment.

    The service is excellent - each time they've recommended the perfect bourbon for the meal. I have yet to eat something here that wasn't great; but the oysters and steak have been my favorites.

    Seafood tower steals the show, but it's a hit or miss with the raw inventory. But the happy hour is a sleeper- crab buns and the burger. Also, good for brunch.

    The chicken pot pie was amazing, the braised brisket was about half the size it should have been, and mostly fat.

    The fried potatoes and oysters are great but the rest of the food leaves much to be desired. Skip the brunch and just come for the oysters.

    Great place to go for 1st dinner. Sit at the bar, order a cocktail and try the foie gras, buffalo chicken nuggets and oysters. Wine list is fantastic as are the cocktails.

    Fantastic food and bar, but the best thing about eating here is the table-side Stumptown Chemex coffee at the end of the meal. Do it!

    Woodsman Tavern takes from big-city influences, Balthezar's seafood tower, Hog & Rocks' ham plates, chef Jason Barwikowski brings it all down to earth with his Mediterranean flow. [Eater 38 Member]
