|Our view while dining at Woody's River Roo|
On the way home from Englewood beach, my parents and I stopped by the Ellenton Premium Outlets. We really were not interested in eating at the outlet food court.
I did a little mobile digging and uncovered a mom and pop, less than a mile away from the outlets, and on the Manatee River- Woody's River Roo.
We were able to find a table on the patio with a great view of the river. Even though it was hot, they had misting fans blowing. It was perfect!
|Delicious Onion Rings|
We decided to start with an order of onion rings. They were made fresh and to order.
Plus, the horseradish dipping sauce was amazing!
|It was packed but there was plenty of seating!|
|Florida Gulf Shrimp basket|
I ordered the fresh gulf shrimp basket. It was nice to actually eat fresh shrimp from Florida and not Indonesia.
However, next time I would order the shrimp dinner instead of the basket because the basket was a tease! They were so delicious!
|The Woody Burger topped with fried onions|
My father went with the Woody Burger- topped with American cheese, fried onions and sliced mushrooms, finished with homemade BBQ sauce.
He enjoyed every bite!
My mother went with the Patty Melt- certified black angus patty on grilled rye bread with swiss cheese and grilled onions.
It was juicy and full of flavor.

Overall, Woody's is a Florida mom and pop you must stop by and visit!
They have a great tiki bar area if you just want to stop by for a relaxing drink. I definitely recommend visiting Woody's the next time you are in Ellenton.
