Best Crab Cakes

The crab cakes at Woody's are the best our family has ever had. They are made with huge chunks of crab and if there was any filler in them, we sure didn't find it. Can't beat the price either for such a great crab cake. The fried pickle appetizer was very good too.

Easy to find. This is a small restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Food is fantastic. Bar tenders were nice, but Waitresses not so much. We had to flag her down several times to refill drinks, And she wasn't pleasant about it. It's hard to leave a nice tip for that kind of service.

Terrific, really, crab cakes (and slaw too!). We felt like we had discovered a hidden gem! This little on the beach side bar/restaurant had parking also. Hamburgers looked good,, but who could pass up the crab cakes!

Really incredible crab cakes with jumbo lump crab worth the price. Right along the main drag of Dewey Beach. Lovely presentation. Shopping to the right and left in downtown Dewey.

Great crab, fantastic hamburger and terrific tater tots! Nice casual meal. Excellent food for a pub. Decent service--a tiny bit slow. Definitely worth the wait (it was a little crowded). Good menu selections, seafood, burgers, sandwiches, salads and vegetarian options. Thumbs up!

Not the best place for a large group, but they managed to fit ten of us in comfortably with only a short wait. The soup of the day was crab gespacho, which was delicious. The crabcakes were the best of several we have had on this trip. We also had a shrimp salad sandwich which had plenty of whole large... More

We heard about the crab cakes here, so we had to try them, and they did NOT disappoint! No filler whatsoever. We also got the fried pickles, which were delicious. The only thing that wasn't stellar was the crab pretzel. Lot of cheese, not a lot of crab. Other than that and relatively slow service (it was Saturday night and... More

Moved from MD and we've been looking for a good crabcake. We've found THE PLACE. I'd rate it equal to G&M in Maryland.

I was in the mood for a crabcake while in the area and chose this place strictly based on reviews. I got lucky because it was mid-afternoon and not too crowded. I had the crabcake sandwich on toasted brioche with chips, a pickle and tartar sauce. It was very nice. I liked the brioche and the whole sandwich felt very... More

Wen ad read the reviews for Woody's on Trip Advisor, so we decided to give it a try. I will agree the crab cake is to die for, that's about the only positive. We arrived on a Sunday night, and we're told 40 minutes for a table inside, about 15 minutes for outside. We could see 4 empty tables outside.... More
