This is a guide to places to eat in the city of Woodbury, Minnesota.

Commonly known as restaurants, these are businesses that serve prepared food to customers, generally for a fee. There are several different types of restaurants, and they may be characterized in a number of ways.

For example, fast food restaurants are generally franchise chains that have become popular for serving low-price food quickly and conveniently, including drive-through options. Most cities in the United States have at least one fast-food place.

Fast casual restaurants are slightly more upscale than fast-food places, although they also tend to be operated as franchises. Most fast casual restaurants have open kitchens, where customers can watch their food being prepared.

Also known as casual style dining, family restaurants usually offer moderately priced food from menus that feature classic cuisine. Casual style dining can be any number of themes, from barbecue to Americana, to Mexican food.

Cafes or bistros are restaurants that don't offer table service. In a cafe, customers typically order from a counter and serve themselves, and common menus include items such as coffee, espresso, pastries, and sandwiches.

Buffets are a restaurant concept where customers serve themselves from a variety of dishes that are set out on a table or sideboard.

Prepared foods are also sold from mobile food trucks, sometimes known as catering trucks. Commercial and industrial businesses with a large number of employees are often served by food trucks, and they are commonly found serving visitors to public events.

Often, these terms are used interchangeably, however. For example, a casual dining restaurant might identify itself as a cafe.

Bakeries, and other places to eat or drink are suitable for this category, and they might go by any of a number of different names. These may include bar and grills, bakeries, barbecues, bars, BBQs, buffets, cabarets, cafes, cafeterias, catering services, catering trucks, coffeehouses, coffee shops, delis, delicatessens, diners, dining cars, donut shops, doughnut shops, drive-ins, drive-in restaurants, fast-food chains, fast-food restaurants, food trucks, hamburger stands, hot dog stands, ice cream parlors, ice cream shops, inns, lunch counters, luncheonettes, lunchrooms, lunch trucks, night clubs, pizza places, pizzerias, pubs, roadhouses, saloons, sandwich bars, smorgasbords, snack bars, steakhouses, taprooms, taverns, truck stops, and probably some others.
