Stopped in for drinks and lunch while out boating. The menu is all encompassing. In our group we had Pine Island steamed clams, bacon hard boiled eggs, chicken wings, fish taco, and fish burrito. All we delicious with nice cold beverages. You can dine inside or outside. Atmosphere is very casual and easy going. Great spot.

I am a Maryland girl and a crab cake snob! The cakes at Woody's are the BEST in the Dewey-Rehoboth area. All jumbo lump, and the fries are good too!

Food was great. Can't rave enough about the crab cakes. Staff and setting was welcoming. Great tasting local beer a plus!

Went to Dewey Beach during off season. Not too many places open. Went to a "local" place to eat. Guessing all the locals were there eating and hanging at the bar. Crab cake was good, shrimp BLT was ok, but the Maryland Crab soup was excellent. We should have stopped before going home for takeout.

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
