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!

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

The crabcakes r the BEST! I love crabcakes and most of them r not up to my standards,I'd rather make them myself than gave a bad one. 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

Just to be clear, I've only had the crab cake here. But it was so good I had to give a 5 star rating. Easily the best I can remember having and I live on the shore. Full of fresh lump crab meat and done to perfection. One recommendation I would have is to opt for the platter instead of... More

I went to Woody's with a party of 6 for lunch on Saturday and we all had excellent meals. We started with some appetizers. Both the deep fried pickles and spicy fried green beans were very good. The slow cooked beef sandwich was excellent. And the jumbo lump crab cake was outstanding. I got it on a sandwich and the... More

We were looking for a puppy-friendly place for a mid-afternoon snack. Woody's is one of the very few listed for Dewey Beach. It also gets generally good reviews. Woody's did not disappoint. The first surprise was they served Purple Haze beer on tap (a refreshing Louisiana lager with a hint of fresh raspberries). I ordered the crab dip, which was... More

I have lived in the area many years, and have never given Woody's more than a passing glance. From the outside, it looks like a dive bar. Well, it actually looks like that from the inside too : ) However, I heard they had really great crab cakes and, with crab cakes being one of my most favorite dishes of... More
