Dining Out in Woodstock

By January 28, 2015April 5th, 2019No Comments


These are our three choices for dinner in Woodstock. There are plenty of restaurants further afield, but for close to home, we think these are pretty good:

The Bear Cafe at 295 Tinker Street has an inviting & cozy ambiance. The rectangular bar in the middle of the restaurant is a great place to grab an appetizer, meet the locals and have a drink whilst the sun is setting. Alternatively, sit at a table overlooking the babbling stream and enjoy a scrumptious 3-course dinner. They often have specials on Monday nights and change their menu often. The mussels are always a good choice. It can get pretty busy, especially on show nights at The Bearsville Theater (which is located next door, definitely check that out too!); we recommend making a reservation for dinner during the summer and on show nights.

The Red Onion is another Woodstock staple. It’s actually located on the Woodstock/Saugerties line, 1654 Rt 212 @Glasco Turnpike. The menu changes daily, we typically go for their seafood special. This is a great restaurant for a romantic meal out.

Cucina has a lovely wrap around veranda, which is perfect to sit out on and have dinner, it has a spacious dining room and a friendly bar area. If you need to try and please everyone this is a good choice! The menu is varied and includes interesting flavoured pizzas (caprina goat cheese, fig-rosemary spread, pear, arugula, truffle oil is delicious), pasta, meat/fish dishes and yummy salads (recommend the kale!).

For cafes with a more casual atmosphere, we recommend:

All these cafes are located in the center of Woodstock and most are open for dinner.

We finally have a late night bar in Woodstock!
The Station Bar & Curio (101 Tinker St) is open until 2 AM, serves food & has a pool table. We can’t wait to check it out!

If you want a little change of scenery, Kingston (20 mins from Woodstock) has some very good restaurants, including:

  • Sushimakio (sushi),
  • Boitson’s (American) and there’s always Peekamoose in Big Indian.

If you are from the city, please remember this is the country, and service finishes early (around 9:30 or 10:00 PM), so don’t leave it too late!
