As my summary mentions, the crab cakes we got from Woody's (we actually got them as take out-prior to cooking and baked them ourselves since we had a large group) were the best any of us had ever had. Pure crab, no filler. Would love...More

Food was good. Kind of greasy. Dark atmosphere inside. Good waitresses. I have to say it wasn't my favorite but worth checking out.

A friend said they had the best crab cakes & THEY DO! ! It's pure crab with only enough filler to hold together. You could miss it driving through Dewey. Across from the Starboard. It helps that it's bright yellow. Now that I know about...More

Woody's is a must every time we go to the Beach. It is the best crab cake sandwich platter in Delmarva. It isn't fancy, but it is a must!!! Eating outside is fun.

Small and rustic tavern on Rte 1, main street Dewey Beach with seating serving beachy bar food. Nothing fancy inside or out. If you don't have to wait for a table, which you do in the height of the season, its a fine place. But...More

Went here for a late lunch and although we had a 20-25 min. wait, it was well worth it. Very small place with indoor/outdoor seating. The food was fabulous, the owner was very friendly and accommodating (he even sat with us for a little bit),...More
