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 visited Woodstock on a Thursday, Joshua's was busy but not over crowded. Definitely recommend sitting upstairs, it is quieter than downstairs, it is open and airy. Our waitress did an excellent job handling several tables and kept on top of everything. I had a tuna salad plate, it was on spinach rather than lettuce, it was tasty and just... More

A friend recommended we stop here---a nice find. We had a delicious, reasonably priced, Sunday breakfast in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Many choices on the menu, the multigrain pancakes and eggs Benedict were scrumptious. The second floor is airy and has a tree house effect. Everything is fresh and local, the best tomatoes I have tasted all summer.

I visited this restaurant last year and it so impressed me I made a point of having dinner here again this year while passing through the Woodstock area. You are making a mistake if you are in Woodstock and miss the opportunity to have a meal here.

We had a fabulous dinner the other night! Everything was fresh and the service was perfect. It's nice to have something different. This is more Middle Eastern, so you have to enjoy this kind of food. We thought it was excellent. I would have rated this a 5, but I was served a Rose that was room temperature. It took... More

For the price, location, food, service and varied menu you can't do better in Woodstock. Woodstock service is famously ditzy but not here, they served our eight person family gathering so competently , we were impressed. An added bonus, they have a good children's menu.

A consistent experience of pretty good Greek and Middle eastern food is offered at this long standing restaurant in Woodstock. Slightly overpriced, this restaurant typically delivers if you are craving this type of food. The hummus is particularly delicious.

Joshua's has a coffee house upstairs with free wi fi and good coffee, pastries and tea. Wi fi is hard to find in Woodstock and this was a comfortable place to do some work via the internet. We also had dinner there and the food was very good, wine, drinks and service great as well.

We stopped for dinner at Joshua's on a recent visit to Woodstock on Sunday evening. Despite the fact that place was remarkably busy, the waiter was courteous and attentive. He readily made substitutions and suggestions to accommodate our new diet. My husband doesn't normally eat chicken but it came with his meat platter that day and he was blown away... More

Joshua's has a fantastic menu. The only difficulty is narrowing down the choices and making a decision about what to order. The wait staff is young and seemed fairly inexperienced although eager to be helpful. As far as decor - the space is fairly small and the tables could definitely be packed a little less tightly.

Joshua's is a Woodstock staple. The food is always consistently good and service always great. This is a lovely place for breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner - I love their Lime Agua Fresca - get a large - it's so refreshing!
