Woody's is a local favorite. They have great seafood and many different options. They are a bit expensive though, especially their dinner prices. When I go there I try to make it during lunch since their lunch prices are substantially cheaper.

Whenever we travel north, Woody's is on our list of places to go. When it comes to crab cakes and seafood in general, they are fantastic. Dinner included crab cakes, scallops, salads, and hush puppies. Absolutely delicious. It is no wonder it is a required...More
