We decided to come here based on other reviewers raving about the crab cakes. It really WAS the best crab cake sandwich that I've ever had! There were not a lot of tables, maybe 6 inside and another 6-8 outside. We got a high-top table inside, got great service and delicious food. We started with 1/2 lb steamed shrimp which... More

Friendly staff, great food. Walking distance to our hotel. Had a half hour wait which is a good sign.

you gotta look for it, tucked into the building next to Valhalla's. Good food, generous drinks, what more do you need, you're at the beach!

Based on the crab cake reviews, we wanted to give Woody's a try. Busy Saturday night but no wait to be seated, other than the hostess came over about 8 minutes after we walked in. Sat out front by the door, which worked out fine for our party of 3 adults. Two of us ordered soda, both were FLAT. Had... More

We heard about the best crab cakes SDI we had to stop in. We did arrive in the late evening... So there was about 30 min wait. Staff was wonderful although some customers were inpatient. Excellent service and superb cake cakes, reasonably priced! We'll be coming back again.

Woody's had been highly recommended in a Newspaper article and we were anxious to try it about a week ago. Well the service was deplorable with an attitude. I ordered the steak special and it was overcooked, overly seasoned with salt, undersized and it was accompanied by an undersized amount of mashed potatoes, about 3 tablespoons. To add further insult... More

If you like crab without the filler, you will enjoy Woody's crab cake. It was served on an artisan bun with home made chips. Excellent! My wife had the raspberry vinaigrette salad with salmon. She's past the age for AARP and said it was the best she ever had in her life! There was no wait for seating on a... More

I'm writing this as we have been sitting here waiting an hour for our check. Food was good. Our waiter never came back to check on us. Never had any drink refills. Asked a girl that took our plates for a refill and she said she was not our server.

We tried this because numerous people in my family love it. We started with cheese sticks and I got a chicken salad sandwich with chips. It was OK. I forgot what my boyfriend ordered but he was also not overly impressed. Afterwards I realized that their signature dishes are crab cake and hamburgers. I would try again based on my... More

Read the review in the Wilmington paper and had to try, to say the least the review was understated. Up until I tried these the Olive Tree off exit 85 on I-95 in Maryland had been my favorite, these crab bakes made looks like a distant second, practically no breading, light, airy and chalked full of crab coup[led with the...
