Cobbs is a great spot in Woodstock! Great food and drinks. You can always count on Josh Carstens and the whole team for great service.

D.C. Cobbs has the best beer selection in Woodstock and by far the best burgers as well. Once you add the great service, you can't go wrong. My bartender Josh was excellent. He had some great beer suggestions and found the time to provide great service while the bar was slammed.

D.C. Cobbs is a great bar with high quality food -- nothing like what you would think would be at a bar -- so much better! Drinks are mixed well -- and Josh, our bartender, was awesome and engaging! Definitely will return!

Went to DC Cobbs with another couple and was extremely surprised to find a very personable bartender named Josh. He was very concerned that our time there was exceedingly enjoyable. I believe we had an exceptionally good time because of his attention. Food was excellent and drinks for marvelous.

Reserved a table for 10. Waitress was attentive and did her job well. The food was typical bar food with just a little updating. I generally do not go here in Woodstock but needed a place with casual atmosphere and choices of beer. They did not disappoint on these specifications. The group was diverse with ages from 85 to 3...

Some of the best burgers I've ever had. Large variety and you get to pick the type of meat you want for your burger. The sweet potato tater tots are amazing!

Fun local restaurant. Pays homage to local Woodstock iconic landmarks, people and institutions with unique and creative names for favorite burgers. You can also build your own. Pick your protein bread and toppings. Great burgers. Great max and cheese too - create your own! Unusual appetizers and sides as well as some traditional ones. Highlight is the extensive list of...
