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!

Probably should have gotten the crab cakes

We heard they had great hamburgers and we were in the mood for hamburgers. They said they were a pound and alto they were REALLY big; not sure they were a pound. The meat was for sure fresh and hand pattied and they are grilled so potentially better than most but I asked for rare and mine was... read more

We heard able it this place from my mom who watches travel channel. I was sceptical when we arrived as it appeared to be a dive bar. We got take out crab cakes and in was heartily surprised at the quality and flavor of these cakes. Heavenly.

We had crab cakes which was superb. Also a vegan meal of veggies and dips. We met some great locals on a freezing night! A lovely spot! We could walk from our hotel.

Without a doubt the crabcakes are the best I have ever had! Huge lump crab, just enough filler to hold it together. Pricey, but definitely not to be missed....in fact, we've been twice this month. Small, cozy atmosphere, a great place.

This is a small bar. Yes you can bring your kids and get one of the few tables, or if it is a nice day you can sit outside on a covered patio and can bring FIDO. Someone in your party should order the crab cakes. They are fresh and huge and they will ruin you for any other crab... More

Yes, the crabcakes are simply amazing at Woody's. To wash it down, Woody's has their own IPA that is very nice. The Maryland crab soup also has the right amount of veggies and Old Bay.

I love this place. First the food is good and varied. Roast beef with au jus is perfect. All mains and sides I've been tried are good, friends and wife agree. selection of drinks is good, on tap and a full bar. Staff and owner outgoing, courteous and helpful! A favorite with locals too, great for conversation if so inclined.... More

Absolutely the best crabcakes ever. No filler, perfectly grilled and not one shell fragment. When I have a craving for crabcakes Woodys will be my only choice. It just a small tavern/ restaurant so if you want to come here, come off season.
