"My girlfriend and I decided that we wanted to spend New Years Eve close to home, but have a nice sit down dinner. As soon as we saw there was an open reservation for Wooden Nickel on Open Table we jumped right on it! They had a great special occasion menu with a variety of options. Our waitress was so kind and made great suggestions for wine to pair with our meals, as well as desserts! They did not try to force us out quick as most places do on holidays to turn more tables. I would gladly go back for a dinner or special occasion!!"

"This restaurant is a real gem in the heart of Monroeville. Food is phenomenal and they are always so personal with the service. The staff went above and beyond to give me and my wife a quiet, romantic New Years Eve Dinner. The Vanilla Bean Stuffed Shrimp are to die for!"

"The Seafood choices were very unique and delicious (Vanilla Shrimp!). Had trouble hearing over the din in the main room, but might be just that particular noisy party. Menu had enough variety to please any gathering. A bit pricey, but would definitely go again."

"The food here is good and well-prepared. For a casual but nice evening out for date night - perfectly fine. My only real request for the management is to lose the glass tops on the tables. When presenting a nice, white tablecloth experience there is nothing more disappointing than having to rattle around on the table with a glass top. It just makes the whole point of having the table cloth service lost on the customers. It smells like something out of the 50's - and not in a good way. Other than that - nice selection and friendly service!"

"Was much better a year ago. Mediocre at best. Poor service; food-quality okay but the preparation was overdone ( perhaps from 'sitting under the lights'); smoky fumes floating around the dining room following dinner, and noise from the bar area. The four of us agreed that desert was the best part of the experience..."
