The hotel that we stayed at in Dewey Beach recommended Woody's for the crab cakes. We decided to give it a try and were not disappointed. It was a Friday night (Feb 17) so it was busy. The crab cakes were full of big pieces of succulent crab - you would think that would be obvious. Not so, because after... More

We were in Dewey Beach for one night and everyone said go to Woody's and get the Crab Cakes. So we went...If this is the #1 restaurant in Dewey Beach I would hate to go to the others. We went at 4:30 on a Sunday and they were moderately busy. Couldn't tell which server was ours, but when we finally... More

House salad was quite disappointing. Uninspired. Steamed shrimp ok, at best. Crab cake sandwich acceptable.

I can't speak to the other items on their menu because every time I visit this area I have a crab cake at Woody's.

I have heard about Woody's crab cakes for a while, but had never ventured there. Two couples had dinner last week, and fully expected to order the crab cake platter. We were surprised to learn that the special that night was a NY strip, and that you could add a crab cake at a discount to make a surf &... More

I must say that being a Marylander I am a crab cake snob. I had heard about Woodys and how good their crabcakes are for some time now so my husband and I decided to give them a try. I was not disappointed! We both started out with a cup of the Maryland Crab Soup ($4.50). This soup was loaded... More

Good food. Had the crab cake platter split with my wife. Excellent. Get there early because it is a small Neighborhood strip bar and even in winter months it gets crowded.

We were looking for a quality pub grub type place in the offseason of Dewey Beach and our hotel tipped us off to Woody's. The crab cakes got stellar reviews, so we had to try them. My wife and I split the 3 slider portion and loved it! It came with a choice of tartar, or cocktail sauce on the... More
