Woody’s Wharf, Newport Beach, CA



Ever wondered how it feels like getting roundhouse-kicked in the butt? Come to Woody’s Wharf owned by Chuck Norris and you’ll know.

OK, well, not quite. He used to own Woody’s back when all customers would eat what he was having, because [insert random funny Chuck Norris fact here.] 😀

I bought a Groupon dinner-for-two deal, $25 for $50. Not bad of a deal for a nice and casual restaurant that sits on the water with beautiful views of the Newport harbor. We were lucky enough to get a booth seat facing the window, which made our dinner much more romantic and enjoyable.

Everything on the menu sounds delicious. Mostly seafood, the kind Chuck Norris would catch with his bare hands and they would taste excellent.

Fried calamari appetizer – huge portion, crispy to my liking, and served with tartar and marinara sauces.

Seafood cioppino – popular Italian seafood stew consisted of shrimp, clams, mussels, cod, calamari, tomatoes, basil, and pasta. It felt as if I was having an under the sea themed party in my mouth. 😀

Auzzie grilled shrimp – seasoned and grilled jumbo shrimp with wasabi mashed potatoes and tangy chipotle remoulade. The shrimp is scrumptious, sweet and tangy. And I also liked the presentation.

We decided to go for the cookie and ice cream dessert. It was decent, definitely not comparable to BJ’s pizookie. The cookie was cold and hard that it felt like we needed a chainsaw to break it apart.

Overall, it was a nice dining experience, taking into account the location, atmosphere, friendly service, and the “half off” Groupon deal. I would give this place a 3.5 stars and might come back with another Groupon deal. 🙂
