New Bar/Restaurant Set to Open in Former Woody’s Roadhouse

Cowboy Jack’s is going in at the location, which has seen a steady rotation of restaurants over the years.

Renovations are underway at the former Woody’s Roadhouse in Woodbury, where crews are turning the space into a Cowboy Jack’s.

The renovation only began recently, said Jesi Mosny, marketing director for the After Midnight Group, the holding company for Cowboy Jack’s. An opening date hasn’t been set, she said.

Once complete, the space will have a “down-home feeling,” Mosny told Patch on Thursday. “That local place where everybody feels comfortable.”

The space—at 1690 Woodlane Drive—has seen several restaurant fail there; Woody’s lasted only four months before it closed.

Asked about that situation and how Cowboy Jack’s plans to succeed, Mosny pointed to a diverse customer demographic.

“We don't just cater to one type of person, but rather to everyone,” she said. “We work very hard to create a very inviting and comfortable environment, whether you have a business lunch, a birthday party, dinner with your family, drinks at our bar … We want everyone to feel comfortable and welcome. That includes providing great customer service.  We work incredibly hard to find your next favorite server or bartender. Our customers are our friends, our family. We take great pride in the lasting relationships we create.”

She said Cowboy Jack’s will be involved in the community.

“We don't want to just open a restaurant in Woodbury, we want to become a part of the community in Woodbury,” Monsy said. “From supporting high school sports programs, raising money for the Special Olympics, or supporting a local benefit for your neighbor. We are heavily involved with the communities in which we are apart of. “

Cowboy Jack’s will feature plenty of comfort food, Mosny said, noting in particular meatloaf and potpie.

“Things that make you feel warm and fuzzy,” she said.

Cowboy Jacks will also have nightly specials, a gluten-free menu, a brunch menu, kids menu and live music.

“We provide a fun lively environment and serve mouth-watering entrees, which include braised chicken, gourmet burgers, potpies, soups/salads, steaks, seafood and, of course, desserts,” Monsy said. “We are always working to improve our menu to fit our guests needs and take great pride in our food. We are proud of the fact that almost all of our food is made in house from scratch.”

WAA has had Pull-tabs in several of the operations there, we were hesitant to open a site in the new restaurant until we saw what they are doing and visited their other establishments. These guys seem to be trying to do it right. We are going to open with them and are hoping that we finally have a restaurant that will be successful, yes this was the same Ol' Mexico group as the Roseville store and there were a lot of reasons that they moved out, blaming it n the city is justa cop out, they didn't want to manage two stores. Lets all get out and support all of the establishments in Woodbury and kick up your heels a little. We are shooting of early to mid April to open the pull-tab booth, so I think they will be ready. They have totally gutted the place and it will be pretty nice in there.

Not sure where Jason gets his statistics from but, if you look at the album charts and how well Wild Bill's is doing I would say that 90% of residents not liking country is quite high. Country is HUGE right now in all cities in all age groups, not sure why the entrance to the lot would stop people from going to a place, location and the hotel next door yes but, the way you get into a lot doesn't seem to be valid. I have an idea, maybe you should apply for a job there or open your own because you are so knowledgeable about what should be done??

Does Wild Bill's play a lot of country? I've only been in there around lunchtime and happy hour and never really noticed. I'll have an update on this place this week.
