Nice array of menu items in a naugahyde-boothed eatery beside the River. Nice swings and you could take your meal to picnic beside the river. Polite help at the order window; self-service; reasonable prices and good for families with children.

Their fried fish dinner is also a to die for meal. The owners rebuilt after Hurricane Irene devastated the restaurant back in 2011. What a sad sight that was. Folks in Woodstock would be lost without this restaurant.
