Woody's is on the surface a hole in the wall bar, but it has charm and character. In addition, the food is great. Their crab cakes are really good. We'll be back!

When you go to a Beach Town in the off season, you take your chances on anything still being open let alone serving good food. We happened to luck out and get the best server: Mai. She guided us through our menu choices and all were spot on. Be forewarned, they make their own Bloody Mary mix ... it's really... More

Was looking for casual seafood and a place near the beach, while visiting for business. The staff were friendly and attentive, even though I was one of the only solo tables and they were busy for dinner time. The crab cake sliders were a perfect size and reasonably priced for a dinner option. Overall enjoyable experience.

Here's yet another review to tell you that the crab cakes at Woody's are fantastic. Based on the reviews for the crab cakes, that's what we both ordered. And we weren't disappointed. I believe it was the best crab cake I ever ate -- and reasonably priced to boot. We originally sat in the outdoor seating where the tables are... More

We had a very nicely prepared Tuna (rare), and the crab cakes were all meat-no filler. Nice feature you can choose your sides. The host was very accommodating of our physical challenges. Outside seating is great-inside too noisy for us.
