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.

On our visit to Dewey Beach during the Sea Witch Festival, I called Woody's to inquire if they allowed pets at their establishment. Whomever I spoke to said "Sure, not a problem." We walked the short distance from the Atlantic Oceanside Motel, where we were staying, and were greeted by Jason, who set my wife and I and our 70... More

My relatives were in town and wanted to go to Woody's. I'm not a big crab cake fan so I can't comment on them (although enough other people did). I got the crab stuffed pretzel to start (and share)....it was delicious, and the Hippie Dip hummus wrap which came with homemade chips. There was something in this wrap besides hummus... More

I have lived in the Rehoboth area (summer) since 1983. Why did it take me all these years to discover Woody"s? Absolutely the BEST crab cakes along the Delmarva shore. No filler. Difficult to park and not much of a place, however, one can do take out but food loses from reheating.

This is a very small bar that boast serving the best crabcakes in the area. The menu stated they were made with colossal lump crabmeat and they were not kidding. The crabcake was big & and contained huge chunks of crabmeat. I could not detect any filler. Well worth the trip especially off season to avoid the crowds since seating... More
