This was our first time staying at Dewey Beach. Friends of ours suggested we go and eat at Woody's! We were also told by the hotel staff they have excellent food and the crab cakes are the best. They were not kidding, I have never had such a great crab cake. We ended up going there for dinner twice, since... More

Woody's is a great place to go for anyone looking for a great sandwich & Drink. We had the crab cake sandwiches & margarita's. They don't use no filler with the crab cakes!

Small casual beach bar restaurant right by the street. Not much seating inside but we enjoyed sitting outside near large TV with the Olympic coverage. Good bar food at reasonable prices. Fun mixed drinks and crabcake was nice and meaty. Also ordered burger, onion rings, chicken tenders.

Heard by word of mouth that they had a great crab cake sandwich and came by myself for a late lunch to find out first hand. Don't come for the ambience as this is a small beach bar on the main thoroughfare and finding a parking space is a real challenge. However, it is a challenge worth undertaking in order... More

They bill themselves as the best crab cakes and they might be just that. My daughter had a burger (not a seafood fan) which she termed excellent. Not fancy at all.
