Friendly staff, great food. Walking distance to our hotel. Had a half hour wait which is a good sign.

you gotta look for it, tucked into the building next to Valhalla's. Good food, generous drinks, what more do you need, you're at the beach!

“Decent food, horrible service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Based on the crab cake reviews, we wanted to give Woody's a try. Busy Saturday night but no wait to be seated, other than the hostess came over about 8 minutes after we walked in.
Sat out front by the door, which worked out fine for our party of 3 adults. Two of us ordered soda, both were FLAT. Had to wait awhile to order, and even longer to get out food. They offered another drink but not any better.
Crab Cake mini's was a good choice. Not much filler. Glad I didn't get the regular crab cake sandwich -- way too much bread. Saw two different people just eating the crab cake and the bottom roll. Wish they had my mini rolls for a better experience.
All in all, I wouldn't go out of my way to make another visit because of the service.... Which is too bad since the food was decent.

“Wait and eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

We heard about the best crab cakes SDI we had to stop in. We did arrive in the late evening... So there was about 30 min wait. Staff was wonderful although some customers were inpatient. Excellent service and superb cake cakes, reasonably priced! We'll be coming back again.

“Deplorable, dishonest Service & Medicore Food - why bother ! ! !”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Woody's had been highly recommended in a Newspaper article and we were anxious to try it about a week ago. Well the service was deplorable with an attitude. I ordered the steak special and it was overcooked, overly seasoned with salt, undersized and it was accompanied by an undersized amount of mashed potatoes, about 3 tablespoons. To add further insult they forgot to serve the salad till at the end of the meal and I had to ask about it. The crab cake my partner ordered was good. When we received the bill they overcharged us for the beers that we had with our meal. Good Grief Woody - how did you train your servers ! ! ! Overall, it was a terrible experience.
