“Great Fresh Seafood!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

In our travels we stumbled upon this great seafood restaurant. It was very casual but the choice for the varieties of seafood were unbelievable! After finally picking a few choices we were very pleased with the food. It was delicious and the seafood was so fresh. The wait staff were great and helpful! Would definitely go back when in the area. Cute little town center! The prices were very reasonable.

“Consistently Fabulous”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

I have been coming to Woody's for many years. It is a favorite spot and worth the one hour drive. We are never disappointed. The best steamed shrimp and crab cakes in the region. Everything on the menu is great

“Good food, fair service”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

They were packed on a Thursday night so maybe the staff was a little overwhelmed. I had clams which were good, one son had grilled shrimp which was very good. Another young one had spaghetti ( not into seafood) and there was no cheese offered on delivery. It took two more request before some showed up. Prices were OK, its seafood after all. We might go back but not with the whole family as dinner will break the bank.

“Best Crab Cake I have had!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Quite simply, I think Woody's serves the best Crab Cakes on the Chesapeake Bay. No filler, just pure, fresh, Maryland Crab. Located in a nice town near Wilmington, Baltimore and Lancaster I think it's definitely worth the ride for me from NW of Harrisburg, PA.

“"Happening place"”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Woody's is the happening place in North East. It is a casual and family friendly restaurant where you can shell peanuts while waiting for Woody's famous crab dishes, including crab bisque and award-winning crab cakes. You can eat on the deck overlooking Main Street, inside the large restaurant or near the covered tiki bar out back. It's a very busy restaurant, but you can shop on Main Street for anything from antiques to chocolate candy while waiting for a table. One of our favorites is the basket of clam strips & fries; it enough for 2 to share.
