Woody's Sports Bar, Bermuda
$, Seafood, Bermudian
If you are looking for a locals' spot in Bermuda to eat then this is one of the great favorites. It doesn't get too crowded, that's mainly because not many tourists know about this restaurant cum bar.
However if you do go there, you can find many locals either queuing up at the outdoor counter for take out food or relaxing at one of the picnic tables with fish sandwich and beer.
Woody's is a budget restaurant and prices here are surely less compared to the island standards. It's located at Boaz Island in Somerset (Sandys Parish) which means that it would be quite convenient even for the cruise ship passengers docked at the Royal Naval Dockyard to easily reach out by bus or taxi (it's only about 2 miles from the dockyard).
You won't miss out the blue colored bungalow style building with few garden umbrellas in front.
Woody's Sports Bar & Restaurant
While you can sit inside, most prefer either the open yet roof covered veranda or the open grassy patch in front where several colorful picnic tables are laid out. When you sit outside or at the veranda, you get lovely view of the ocean (Boaz Island Bay) across the street.
Great fish sandwiches, fish n' chips, fish fritters, grilled fish etc are what most come here for. However there are several other nicely prepared items offered including fresh salad, jerk chicken (really good), shrimp dishes, French fries and more.
The menu is written on a blackboard and changes depending on what is available. In fact they themselves catch the fresh fish. Rock fish fry is another favorite. They usually use Wahoo in the fish sandwiches as well as grouper.
The fish sandwich is served with coleslaw and tartar sauce. You can ask for the bread you want and also tell them if you want that toasted. Raisin bread is one of the favorites for fish sandwich.
Note that in 2015 in an island-wide competition held by Bermuda Tourism Authority, Woody's was selected as one of the top five restaurants in Bermuda for fish sandwich.
The bar is nicely stocked and you get good varieties of beer, cocktails and spirits. They also keep imported spirits including Johny Walker Scotch whiskey. On some days they also organize DJs.
The staff is very well behaved and friendly. Although this is no way near an upscale spot, but you will feel at home and can enjoy. There is enough car parking available.
Fish sandwich costs $12.75 and the portions are great.
The restaurants is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is an outdoor counter for take out.
