We were on a trip to colonial America and also wanted to focus on seafood. In Rehoboth, someone in our hotel vowed that the best crab cakes in America were to be found at Woody's in Dewey Beach. The character of the restaurant is not one to establish confidence, but the immense crowd reassured us. It was the best crab... More

If you didn't know about this place you might be tempted to ignore it. For a beach town this place does not look special from the outside. It is a non-descript store front under a motel. And inside it looks like nothing but a local bar. But if you like Crab Cakes, they really live up to the hype. It... More

All the crab dishes are above par. The local character abounds all around. Service was awesome. Must stop here to eat if in the area. You won't regret it.

Having lived in Maryland and Delaware our entire lives, my husband and I are always skeptical when a restaurant advertises "Best crab cakes." Well, Woody's crab cakes live up to the hype. We had lunch the day before Easter. As expected, the restaurant was crowded. However, we sat at the bar immediately. The bartender was great, lots of personality. The... More

Woody's is an okay restaurant in Dewey. The first time I went there I thought the food was disgusting. The seccond time it was okay.

A hole in the wall kind of place that you'd expect to see on "Diners, Drive-ins & Dives". They live up to their boast as the best crab cakes, service was excellent. In addition it was a fun place. I imagine that during the summer its packed, because of its intimate size.

I am a local. Have heard of this restaurant for a while. I had heard nothing but great things. Was down at the family beach house, thought, why not? My wife, myself and our two kids drove a few blocks away, and right off the bat realized parking is a joke. Lesson to self... walk! Anyway, went inside, was seated... More

We visited this restaurant several times (dog friendly in outside porch dining area) and never disappointed. Food always served hot and very tasty, especially their crab cakes, their specialty. Bartender always friendly and generous with his drinks/alcohol ratios. Will definitely go back again next time in the area.

I visited Woody's on my first night in Dewey Beach as it was one of a few places opened in the off season at 8:30 pm. Woody's was 4 blocks from my hotel and I was told it was in walking distance so I walked the 4 dark blocks. I dined on the outside patio area so I didn't get... More
