The Woods Jupiter, Tiger Woods’ $8 million Florida eatery, has been open for a week.
The upscale sports and dining club doesn’t even have a menu on its website yet, but diners lucky enough to snag a table during the restaurant’s early opening have already started leaving posts on Yelp about the Lollipop Lamb Chops, delicious steaks, tuna crudo (a type of tartare) and even a chocolate cake with bacon.
The Woods Jupiter, in downtown Jupiter, already has a 4.5 star rating but many were more impressed by the ambiance and hi-tech décor than the food. The restaurant received consistent marks for its “stunning” atmosphere and “sophisticated design”-- from people who really seem to like televisions in the dining room.
Here are some of the most entertaining Yelp reviews of the championship golfer’s new dining establishment:
“There are so many TV's in just the right spots and they'll change them to whatever channel you want. Thanks for such a wonderful experience, I'll be back soon,” wrote Aaron K (5 out of 5 stars).
“The three banquettes have their own televisions that you can control- so you can watch a game or, if you are there with kids, a show for the little ones,” remarked user R.A. (5 out of 5 stars)
“The Woods Jupiter is a stunning restaurant and bar where the sports elements and flatscreens are integrated into the sophisticated design and the exemplary food shows fine dining and sports need not be mutually exclusive,” user Foodie Girl P. sums up the entire experience (5 out of 5 stars)
The Woods Jupiter may be trying to fill the void for hungry people who just can’t bear to be away from a TV.
