Woodys is in Dewey Beach just South if Rehoboth Beach. We caught the Jolly Trolley, which runs every half hour, from the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach. The Gazpacho was excellent as were the crab cakes. The atmosphere is beach casual with excellent food.

Tiny Tiny Tiny -- you may want to order carry out. It's worth the trip home or a 15 min wait for a table. Parking is difficult, but again - worth the hassles.

Dropped by for a crab cake sandwich and cold beer. Both excellent. No decor. No view. Just good food and good prices.

If you look past the fact that this is a little dive bar in a strip plaza right on Route 1 and ask the locals where to eat, they will send you to Woody's. Talk about no filler in the crab cakes. Wow! And it...More

The crab cake sandwich is the best! If you enjoy jumbo lump crabmeat broiled with little filler this is the place! Woody's is a small bar grill with limited outdoor seating. However you just cant beat this sandwich. The service has always been excellent! The...More

I can't recall, but this time of year, I'd bet they do. Wouldn't wait til September since July and August are prime time for blue claws. As the air chills, crabs move further offshore and to warmer water. Enjoy one for me!
