Woody's Dewey Beach has been serving the best crab cakes and burgers at the beach since 2009. Located at the heart of Dewey Beach, our friendly staff is here year round to provide great service and our award winning food in a fun and friendly atmosphere! Stop by and sample our menu - from homemade chips to the best authentic crab cake around, and check out our daily specials and events. Whether you stroll off the beach to have lunch on our porch, or came back at night for dinner and entertainment, you'll see why we were named the Best of Dewey in 2012!

Best Crabcakes!

This place has a very casual, relaxed bar atmosphere. The food was excellent! A friend had recommended the crab cakes to us and they are the best ever. All crab, with a tiny bit of filler - just enough to hold them together. We had soft pretzel with crab meat on it which was excellent also... read more

The best Crab cakes on the East Coast, the Homemade Pizza is heavenly, nachos are great too. Jimmy is a hands on owner and always involved with the community. This is definitely a place to stop for a great meal or adult beverage or just an ice tea. Even though its a restaurant/bar, Jimmy and his staff make all feel... More

We met friends and had a wonderful crab cake meal. There was no filler in the crab cake at all. We were able to eat outside and the weather was perfect. It was nice to not feel rushed while we were eating.

Woodys is a home run every visit. Stopped in last week with friends. Instead of having their DELICIOUS and famous crab cakes, I tried the shrimp salad. Tasty as well - shrimp were huge!!! It's the beach so parking will be challenging as well as finding a table. Luckily, they have outdoor seating on the front porch which faces Rt... More

April 28, 1015 When you tell someone you had lunch or dinner in Dewey, DE at Woody’s East Coast Bar & Grill, people always say did you have the “Crab Cakes”. Yes we did and they are the best we ever had. There was no filler just Jumbo Crab Meat on a warm bun. We ate outside, however if you... More

Now this place is definitely a bar so if your looking for something else get your crabcakes to go,we did this while on vacation a few years ago because we had a baby... More

I had the opportunity to taste some excellent crab cakes in Dewey Beach. This is truly the best Crab cakes in Delaware. This is coming from a Marylander living in Delaware. It has a nice broiled taste and all lump crab meat.

Crab cake was delicious. Kids had hot dog and fries. Average. Initial service was slow for off season. Better once order was taken. We sat outside because they have very few tables inside. Definitely a bar atmosphere. Faces busy road.

We're native Delawareans. We drive through Dewey Beach several times each summer. But, we never knew about this place! But on Sunday, as we were visiting the Painted Stave in Smyrna (another review), my sister and bro-in-law mentioned the place. So....nice afternoon, nothing else going....off we go. Best crab cakes I have had in many a year!!!!! It's a little... More
