We had lunch here after golf at a nearby course. The restaurant was recommended to us at the golf course as was the "Woodstocker" hamburger. The recommendation proved to be a good one. The hamburgers were prepared medium rare as requested and, one could tell that the beef that was used was above average in quality. They are a very... More

We have eaten here several times while visiting with family - with consistently good results. Wraps and burgers are always very tasty. Fried clam and calamari, served only on the weekend, are surprisingly excellent. You can eat inside in one of several pine wood paneled rooms or outside on picnic tables - nothing fancy for sure - but that is... More

We went with a party of 10 for lunch. We had a great table in the back with a view. The service was fast, friendly and efficient. The place was clean and the food was fresh and good. We will definitely go back the next time we're in the area.

I frequented this stand/restaurant in the mid eighties as a high school student (it was quite literally the ONLY place around.) While it has been two and a half decades, and ownership has changed hands, one thing has remained practically the same. The "Stand's" standard of cleanliness. I had hoped that the current owners would have taken more pride in... More

Nice place on 169. Right there on the side of the road. Good ice cream and they have food too. Nice stop while riding the motorcycle.

Sweet Ev's is local to us, so we visit often. They have great pizza, salads & Yay for ice cream! In the late spring they have an asparagus pizza that is fantastic! I wait all year for it~ the asparagus is grown just down the road at Woodstock Orchards, so you're supporting 2 local businesses, win!

This is a treasure of a restaurant: small, cosy, relaxed times ten. It is the authentic experience. Food is fresh, excellent- a hamburger at Evalina's is better than a steak anywhere else. Pizzas are amazing. Tom, Polly, Gary and all of the staff are friendly, efficient and pleasant. Evalina's is the heart of Woodstock. I have been there at least... More

fun place to go for pizza in woodstock. reliably good quality food. "tacky, yet unrefined" comes to mind as a way to describe the environment.

The place isn't even close to fine dining...but the food makes up for the shabbiness. The food is well prepared...always fresh....some pretty modernized dishes...oh, and the pizza is to die for! If you like the "floppy" kind, you will love it. The people who own and work there are always very friendly as well! Great service.

Sweet Evalina's Stand is one of the best places I know. The owners, Polly and Tom, are there all of the time and they have the best complement of cooks and waitstaff you could ask for. The food is excellent: creative, fresh and plentiful. It is a gathering place for Woodstock and the owners are community minded. Can't be beat.
