In this region that is a good place. Nice vibe and great meat. The sea food plate not so much. Prices are low but that ia true for this region. 2 main with drinks 53 $ + tip.

We ate there, there was not enough waitstaff, the soup was salty dishwater, we sat ourselves. The shrimp scampi was flavorless. One of the waitresses tried to be very nice, but they were too busy to even smile. Poor ladies...I am surprised it's busy... Maybe their bar food is tastier. My husband's fried chicken fared better on the tastiness, just... More

Kozels charms you as soon as you enter - with its old wood furniture, long curving bar, and friendly welcome. The menu has steak, fish, pasta, etc. with some interesting seasonals ie shad roe these days. They are all well prepared - don't look for any culinary flourishes - and come in big servings. The bar is more than decent... More

Having passed Kozel's many times on our way to Hudson to dine, we decided to stop and try the place out. The place is dated but clean and the service people are very friendly. The food was good. The only complaint that I have is that the menu sign under the Kozel's sign is not kept up to date. It... More

Kozel's offers really good, tasty food with old time value, comfort, and service. While the ambience is a flashback to the 50s and 60s, that makes it a fun though nostalgic place for baby boomers and older persons to visit and an authentic historic restaurant for younger persons! It is well kept and clean -- just not interested in decorating... More

The best of 1950s and 1960s Wisconsin lakeshore dining, but fortunately for us, it's in Columbia County, NY, on Route 9H. You haven't been there for decades? Go!!!

Good quality down home comfort food. It is a great family place to go without breaking the bank. They have both a Seniors and Children's menu to span all age groups and appetites. Their turkey dinner was very good on a windy April night. The atmosphere is dated, yet it is comfortable and is like a step back in time,... More

Kozel's provides delicious food at reasonable prices. It's a comfortable, impeccably clean, friendly place with a warm and inviting atmosphere reminiscent of the 1940's and 1950's. We stopped for lunch on a cold, blustery day and as we stepped inside, we were greeted by the warmth of a gas stove fire. The beef stew was superb, with large chunks of... More

Food is good and reasonably priced. Family friendly and the restaurant is family owned. It has been a staple of dining in Columbia County for many years. If you are looking for friendly place with good food this is it.
