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, 2013, 2014.

Great Sports Bar Atmosphere

We went to Woody's on A Saturday in January to watch the NFL playoffs. It was crowded, but luckily got 2 seats at the bar. I had a Lagunitas IPA on tap and my girlfriend had a mixed drink. We were a little hungry so we ordered onion rings and crab dip. They were both great. We stayed pretty much... read more

Best crab cakes ever in this charming bar. Reminds me of a cross between the neighborhood bars of days gone by and pubs in UK. Quick fast service, and pet friendly porch area makes it perfect...even in the colder months

We were told that this location had the best crab cakes. Then I read the reviews that made the same deceleration. So my husband and I went on an adventure. Its definatly a bar which we don't usually frequent. As we approached it looks like a dive. There are only five tables to sit at. We walked in and no... More

We stopped in last night for dinner after the movies. The crab cakes were really among the best I have ever had -- no filler and large pieces of crab. Also had good steamed shrimp and an excellent huge chicken quesadilla appetizer (great value).

Went to Woody's off season as it was one of the few places open there. We had some of the best crab cakes ever. Very full with little filler. The chips were great too. The waitress was nice and they are actually quite busy with a bar crowd. I imagine it might get a bit cramped in the summer particularly... More

The restaurant was full on an off season Thursday night and for good reason. Many TripAdvisor contributors have raved about the crab cakes and we would like to add our name to that list. For those who don't want the dinner of 2 - 6 oz crab cakes, you can order them individually as a side. Check for their specials.... More

While down in the area for the Sea Witch festival, we planned on dining at Woody's. We were a party of 4. All of us ordered the Crab Cake Sandwich. It was unanimous, everyone said it was great. It was one of the best I ever had. There aren't many tables so expect to wait. The atmosphere is OK. The... More
