    Lobster roll is top notch. Chowder's good too. You can pass on the fries, though.

    Their fries, onion rings, etc are fried in lard and thus not vegetarian. But I doubt many vegetarians are going to Woodman's anyway.

    Lobster roll is delicious. French fries and corn, well, not so much.

    This place was recommended by a hotel staff member. It was very disappointing. Clam chowder was watered down. Lobster didn't taste fresh.
