Four years in the making, Woody’s 2 Go is now open in Dewey Beach.

Woody’s Dewey Beach Bar and Grill owner Jimmy O’Conor said the new takeout spot, directly across Coastal Highway from his restaurant, is fulfilling his vision to provide customers with both solid table service and the convenience of to-go orders while also alleviating pressure on his staff.

During busy times, the popular restaurant has lines of customers waiting to be seated up to an hour or more. Takeout orders can’t be accommodated then, O’Conor said, because the additional orders would occupy staff and lengthen wait times for diners.

“This whole thing started because I was upset I had to tell people we couldn’t do takeout,” O’Conor said. “I’ll never have to say, ‘Sorry, we’re not doing takeout now.’ I’m so excited that it’s open. I don’t want people to ever have to wonder if we’re doing takeout, because we are doing takeout.”

As of May 23, Woody’s 2 Go is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. In addition to take-and-bake crab cakes and grab-and-go items, patrons can order from a mostly full menu; burgers and steaks won’t be available for takeout, as the location doesn’t have an open-flame grill.

Woody’s 2 Go also offers a full line of merchandise, including sweatshirts and T-shirts, onesies, koozies and even dog collars. Crab cake shipping will be available soon. There will be no table service at the location; it is solely for to-go orders.

O’Conor first planned to open the takeout location in 2020, but the pandemic derailed plans. In 2022 and 2023, O’Conor said a lack of staff prevented him from opening Woody’s 2 Go, but he hired enough employees last summer to flow some staff between locations this season.

Woody’s 2 Go is located at 1905 Coastal Hwy. directly across the street from Woody’s. 

O’Conor is hiring line cooks; apply in person at Woody’s, 1904 Coastal Hwy.
