I guess Woody's has the same issues as most restaurants lacking help. The wait for a table is long and the wait for the food was long but we had a server named Meg who was an absolute doll. Very attentive and great with the...kids. The kids had their food right away to avoid a mutiny. I thought the prices were considerably cheap compared to other restaurants we chose. My wife ordered the crab cakes (actually crab cake). They served one per serving due to a shortage. I would go back because I think once Covid is over and people come back to work, they will be in a better position to serveMore

Ate here recently and had the crabcake, which was very good, and I'm picky when it comes to crabcakes. I could only order 1 crabcake, due to a "shortage"....but it was worth the visit. The crab dip was okay....fairly average to be honest, but the...crabcake was next level.More

We waited over an hour for a table for my husband to eat a $25 crab cake sandwich and for the rest of us to have pretty mediocre food. If you love crab cakes, theyre supposed to be the best. But if not, I'd try...one of the many other eateries.More

Food was fine, but even outside, noise level was horrendous; loud voices, shrieks of laughter, impossible to speak.

We knew we had to stop here to get a crab cake and boy are we glad we did! Super delicious! Great atmosphere and friendly staff.

Lunch picked up and taken to the beach! Loved everything we ordered!! Crab cakes are incredible but you can’t go wrong with anything on this menu!

This is a really neat spot. Sat outside on the patio. Very busy. Food is excellent. I would definitely recommend you stop here!

It was busy, so there was a wait but the food we ordered (crab cake & chicken salad sandwiches, and soft shell crabs) was good even though they went overboard with the mayo on the chicken salad. The chips that come on the side were...pretty good, except for one which had too much Old Bay seasoning.More

The crab cakes really live up to the hype. I also enjoyed the Old Bay chips that accompanied the sandwich. Service was a bit slow, but they were packed. Finding parking was painful.

We went about 5:30 and waited about 35 minutes for a table. There is little room to wait out of the sun but you can browse the store next door that has great AC. We started with a Orange crush that was weak for the...price $10. Crab shortage meant we only got one crabcake but it was very good.More

Don’t think so. They are not open for dining anyway. Just take out.

I don't know if it is dog friendly.
Where do you wait with a baby after being skipped over on the wait lis by your hostess after waiting 45 minutes and the hostess admittiningly telling us we got skipped over by accident after ordering drinks and kids food at the bar just to be told an ABC agent is here now and we can no longer sit at the bar after waiting patiently,while it’s raining and all the outside seats are taken? Do we stand in the middle of the restaurant In The way? Also, I shouldn’t have to ask where the kids food is after 30 minutes at 530 to be told it’s really busy, just to have it come out 1 minute later after the bartender goes to check, I’ve worked in the food industry and any respectable establishment knows to bring kids food out as soon as possible. So basically his food was forgotten about because he wasn’t drinking or ordering shots.
