On an over night trip thur north east. Nothing even like a chain restaurant available. Best thing ever. Drove downtown. One lane traffic. Free parking both side and there was Woody's. We were seated right away. Paper on the tables with paper towels and we knew we were at the right seafood restaurant. Quick service friendly waitress that answered all... More

Husband discovered this gem while in the area on business. Just there for the third time. Arrived just after opening at 11:00. Got the Net Buster which is enough for both of us. Lobster tail, fresh fish, crab cake, crab imperial, jumbo shrimp, steamed clams and shrimp, snow crab legs. ALL DONE TO PERFECTION. I like it because nothing is... More

We were looking for a seafood restaurant in North East Maryland and Woody's Crab House came up and boy am I glad it did. The crab cakes were delicious and the crab bisque was fantastic. I don't think I have ever had a seafood soup with as much seafood in it. Each spoonful had crab in it. Yum. I would... More

Wow. Was not disappointed on our meal. Drink service was a tad slow. But we did go on a Friday night on long weekend. Crab legs were tasty. Platters were large enough to feed two very hungry travellers.

We were staying overnight in North East (MD) for the first time and wanted to sample the local restaurants. We chose Woody's because it was well advertised (saw a sign for it on I 95), and we were up for some Maryland crab. It had a good review (we checked Trip Advisor first) so we went straight there after checking... More

The food at Woody's is always top notch, the staff friendly and efficient. The bloody mary drinks are among the best every tasted.

The menu is large. The snow crab legs and the oyster casserole were very good. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful. The lady's restroom had no toilet paper and no one did anything about it.

Don't dress up for Woody's, this is a hard and true Crab house with the customary brown paper table coverings. Everyone is indulging on seafood!! It's busy and it's popular, so expect to wait a bit on weekends. We truly enjoyed the visit, can only imagine what it sounds like in Summer Crab Banging Season! I didn't get seafood, so... More

We arrived at around 2:30 and the place was mobbed. My husband loves crab cakes and he said this was excellent. I am allergic to shellfish but I found a wonderful salmon sandwich. So juicy. My husband also had crab bisque soup which he said was delicious. We started out for just a ride and about 2 hours later we... More
