now open!



YES, we have our liquor license now! Beer, wine, and cocktails — including Whiskey Cheerwine slushies and frozen margaritas.

Please join us Saturday, August 24 at 11am for a book reading and signing with Kyle ‘Black Cat Tips’ Brooks. Kyle will read his recently-published book “Smile a While” in the game room at 11am and then hang out to chat and sign books. All are welcome; no purchase necessary. (Of course, Kyle will have books for sale that day.)

We will be OPEN on Labor Day (Monday, September 2) from 11am to 4pm, closed for dinner. Scroll down to our Catering Menu and reach out to place your orders! Please don’t wait until the last minute; we’ll have to cut off catering orders when we reach a certain volume and really don’t like to say no . . . . And, even if you just need a pound of this and a pound of that, please place as a catering order in advance so we can gauge our needs for the weekend properly and feed as many of you as possible!

See our Instagram feed and the menu at the counter for weekly brunch specials, offered Saturday and Sunday, 11am-3pm, in addition to the regular menu.

7 days a week 11am - 9pm

Named for one of the first churches to serve the Summerhill community immediately following the Civil War, Wood's Chapel uses traditional wood-fired pits to prepare an extensive barbecue menu including whole hog, prime brisket, salmon, and turkey.

Todd Ginsberg, Shelley Sweet and Jennifer and Ben Johnson opened Wood’s Chapel BBQ in historic Summerhill in June 2019. The four also are partners in The General Muir, TGM Bread, Fred’s Meat & Bread, Yalla, and The Canteen — collectively “Rye Restaurants.” (Sweet and the Johnsons also are partners in West Egg Café). 

Chef-Partner Todd Ginsberg, Chef Wilson Gourley, Sous Chef John Williams, and Pitmaster Craig Hoelzer lead the culinary team at Wood’s Chapel.
