The Eastern Shore is known far and wide for its delicious crab cakes — and for
good reason. For eight consecutive years, Coastal Style readers have voted Woody’s
Dewey Beach as the best place to enjoy this specialty in Sussex County. People come
from all over the state — and beyond — to taste their amazing, handmade, crab cake
sandwiches, made with no filler and all flavor.
Since opening in 2009, owner Jimmy O’Conor has built a stellar reputation with locals and visitors as a must-stop when traveling through Dewey Beach.
“We pride ourselves on professional, hardworking and friendly staff that’s here to serve our guests the freshest-quality and most consistent food daily, in a fun and friendly atmosphere,” O’Conor said.
Beyond its crab cakes, Woody’s Dewey Beach boasts an award-winning lunch menu featuring a host of options, including soft shell BLTs (when available), thick, juicy burgers, blackened ahi tuna wraps, fried shrimp and much more. It also has a highly popular late-night menu.
“We invite you to stop by and sample our menu – from our homemade chips to the best authentic crab cake around, and check out our daily specials and events,” O’Conor said. “Whether you stroll off the beach to have lunch on our porch or join us for dinner, we look forward to serving you.”
