We had a very nicely prepared Tuna (rare), and the crab cakes were all meat-no filler. Nice feature you can choose your sides. The host was very accommodating of our physical challenges. Outside seating is great-inside too noisy for us.

The food was delicious and the beer was great. Good for a quick bite to eat when I got in late on Friday

Friends of ours took us here after a day of surf fishing in September. They are known for their crab cakes, which my wife had and enjoyed. Definitely no filler in the crab cakes here! I had a pulled pork sandwich that was quite tasty in and of itself. It doesn't have much seating inside so if you can go... More

It was nice so we ate outside. A little noise from the road. The crab cake was great, but not the best that I have ever had.The waitress was the worst ever. Almost like we were bothering her by eating there? The atmosphere was not quite what I expected. We will probably not return.

I'm normally not a seafood person, but this place came highly recommended by a local...so we gave it a try....the waitstaff were pleasant and we ate at an outside table that faced the main road...parking here is very sparse and if you are backing out, make sure you look both ways before you do! I can only imagine the issues... More

Three of us stopped in at Woody's on our way back to Rehoboth from Assateague. We each got the crab cake platter which included two crab cakes and two sides at $29. To say that the crab cakes were superb would be an understatement. Very little filling and perfectly seasoned! The various were also good and the atmosphere was casual... More

Enjoy all the meals we eat there. Convenient to all motels in Dewey, and is walking distance. Is a moderate price range and fun place.

Came to this place with the family during our short vacation to dewey beach. I have to say the place was amazing. It had perfect crab cakes, it's their best seller and a must. The crab pretzel were yummy too a Lil heavy but that only enhances the flavor. Must try place if you go to dewey beach

Thank Mays A
