Owner, Cody Wood comes from a large family. His father Myron is the middle child of nine, born to Maynard & Delores. The couple were members of the Lake Wisconsin Boat Club, & learning to waterski was mandatory for the couple’s children.
Frying up fish caught from the Wisconsin River & beyond, was not just a Friday night event. Family & friends often gathered around the grill to share laughs & a meal, wether it was summer time or not. When snow accumulated, the excitement of snowmobiling & dining at local supper clubs kept the family close & active.
After a long career at Madison Coca-Cola, Maynard “retired” & the couple purchased a supper club, 'Wood’s Riverside Inn' of Sauk City (the current location of Green Acres Restaurant). Dolly perfected her own recipes - preparing soups, salads & desserts daily. After 13 years of serving the community, the successful restaurant was sold.
Woody & Dolly’s children eventually grew & started families of their own, leading to 22 grandkids & 28 great grandchildren (an ever growing number). Gathering around the grill for a flame seared meal has remained a constant tradition between generations.
Wood BBQ carries on this family tradition by preparing meats in a drum style, charcoal rotisserie grill, & serving each with scratch made sides. It is our honor to continue the Wood family legacy by serving your family & friends.
