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.

Living in an area where we have a lot of seafood restaurants, we try crabcakes whenever we go to a different restaurant. They have, by far, the best crabcakes in Delaware.

Woody's advertises the best crab cakes in Dewey Beach and they are telling the truth! We ate twice during our stay at Woody's because it was the best food on the beach.

Best food, including the best crab cakes in memory. Fries were great, and even a simple BLT was delicious. Service slooow.

We heard that Woody's had the best crab cakes. Now, we've had some really good crab cakes before, but these were indeed in that top echelon. Absolutely delicious. All lump crab, no filler, seasoned perfectly and served fresh and hot. They were so good, that I returned the following day to have another for lunch. The crabcake sandwich gets you... More

We went for dinner because of all of the overwhelmingly positive posts that I saw regarding their crab cake samich ($15.50). When we first arrived the outside made me think I was in an episode of "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" but we went in and we found it to be pleasantly quaint. Don't get me wrong it's a sure enough...

This restaurant was highly recommended for its crab cake sandwich, which did not disappoint. Probably one of the best I have eaten. The restaurant is small which means that during peak dinner time and a nice night, the wait for a table can be up to an hour. The only reason I don't give this place five stars is that... More

Had heard about the crab cakes from Woody's. We were on vacation in Dewey and went there for dinner. Started with the crabby tots, which were amazing. The crab cakes were better - huge lump meat and no filler. We went back the night before we went home.
