Eating in..Dewey Beach, Woody’s East Coast Bar & Grill, Restaurant, Review, Delaware Beaches
An unexpected nice day, I must say. Waking up to one of those gorgeous days that the Delmarva Peninsula offers to us residents and visitors, as well. If you were visiting the Delaware Beaches, the week-end did not start on a good note, weatherwise. The ones that hung around were rewarded for their patience and understanding.
I have plenty of friends. Cindi is one of them. I have known her for such a long time. And, she is game for anything; a foodie too. Probably not a good influence on me, but what the heck.
We went to visit a friend in the town of Roxanna. To tell you the truth we were in no rush to leave her farm because look at the view from her deck. So close to the beaches and yet so rural.
But, as we started to get hungry we took off for an impromptu visit to Woody’s East Coast Bar & Grill. It is located at 1904 Highway One in Dewey Beach, Delaware. It is so easy to find. Dewey is not that big. A small strip shopping center; retail on the bottom, apartments on top. Tel. 302-260-9945. Their website is under construction, so please check them out on Facebook as Woody’s Dewey Beach.
The reason for this unexpected stop to Woody’s was because everyone keeps talking about their crab cakes. They are the best and bla bla bla….
We made ourselves comfortable as we went through the menu. Check everything we tried. Here it goes. By the way, it all came at once.
Cindi said we had to try the Crab Pretzel. This was a ballpark pretzel filled with their best crab dip and topped with melted shredded cheeses. Please share this dish. Sooo good.
Cindi also said we had to try the Seared Ahi. A different twist with a Cajun rub, then seared, accompanied with a cucumber melon seaweed salad, garnished with a wasabi cream.
I was told that Woody’s had some awesome wings. It was a pound of wings your way. Choices of medium, hot, BBQ, Old Bay or Asian. We went with the Asian since those were new to us. Served with celery and our choice of Blue Cheese. They did not disappoint. Well done with a slight sweet taste.
Then, I suggested we order the crab cake platter. Two 6 oz. crab cakes, broiled to a golden brown. The 2 sides chosen were mac and cheese and French fries.
The crab cakes were truly delicious. Best I have had at the Delaware Beaches in a long time. Jumbo lump crabmeat; just a hint of a filling to hold them together; crispy on the outside, and smooth in the middle. The French fries were well seasoned; crispy, as well.
The mac and cheese was so creamy and bubbling hot. Very very good.
We had enjoyed all this food sitting on one of their outside tables. It is a very casual place. Come as you are type. They open 7 days a week, from 11 a.m. until 1 a.m. Credit cards are accepted. Some parking spaces available in front or, otherwise, hunt for street parking.
If you think we ate all that food….Cindi took a doggy bag.
It really was a nice day sharing it with a friend….those moments are priceless!!
And one more thing…my dinner? Well, I had a mango.
