Description: Joshua's is the longest serving restaurant in Woodstock, feeding and delighting patrons with high-quality, healthy, delicious food for 42 years! We strive to use the freshest, locally sourced ingredients we can find. Once a "java lounge", our upstairs dining room and bar offers an airier alternative to our main dining room. We look forward to being of service.

I have eaten here several times and each time is better than the first. I am a vegetarian but friends we were with are not and there are so many choices for everyone. Very family friendly.

I went to Joshua's for Christmas Eve dinner and on a very quiet evening, I found the food to be a mixed bag. First off it is a pretty restaurant in a nice location and the service that night was excellent. My server on top of having a welcoming and warm personality had a great dye job on her hair... More

This is an attractive cafe on the second floor and a restaurant below. The casual but elegant environment works perfectly in the town of Woodstock. I did not care for the policy of spending a minimum of $20 if you bring a laptop however they still pull it off.

Delicious food with lots of creative menu options, unbelievably friendly, attentive service. We went later in the evening after the dinner rush and enjoyed a low key meal at a corner table with a window overlooking the street as the snow fell lightly over Woodstock. Most delightful and memorable evening.

It is a small restaurant. We were sitting at a nice window out to the street. The service was nice. The food was decent nut not exciting. Lamb shish kebob was bland. I would not recommend this place.

I love Joshua's for it's nice menu and good values compared to other Woodstock restaurants. Especially love the upstairs cafe and lounge, where you can eat a full meal with friends or just sit with your laptop, iPad etc. and work quietly. Nothing like this room anywhere else in Woodstock, because it's Quiet and Calm. My French group meets here... More

It's sad that a neighborhood staple like Joshua's has slipped in quality so dramatically. On a recent visit with a visiting friend, the food was very ordinary, more diner-quality than good dining. I had the Bagel McJoshua, which was described as scrambled eggs, tomato, and artichoke hearts with melted cheese on a toasted bagel. Sounds good, but it was tasteless... More

We went to Woodstock this past weekend with a large group...there were 9 of us...all female. Everyone kept talking about Joshua's coffee and how wonderful it was so after walking the main street and checking out the cute little boutiques and shops, several members of our group decided they wanted to try this coffee. We scurried in from the rain... More

I, Stephanie, would like to apologize again publicly and formally. I should have chosen my words more carefully and said"overwhelmed" by the appearance of two large groups. I realized how off my demeanor had been and was calling downstairs staff in hopes that they had helped your group and made up for my behavior. If you can find a way... More

This little place right in the middle of town is a Woodstock institution. It serves creative, well prepared, fresh Middle Eastern/Israeli and American food, with healthy options for veggie/vegans as well as lots of stuff for the carnivores among us. Highly recommended.

You can never go wrong here. No matter whom you are entertaining and what their likes or restrictions are, there is something good for everyone. Good food, good atmosphere, good service. A Woodstock gem and landmark.
