There’s no shortage of good restaurants close to The Roxbury. We’ve put some of our favorites in the list below, but feel free to ask us about other eateries in the area. It may be a little bit country out here, but that doesn’t mean some of the food’s not rockin-n-rollin! And in order to give everyone a fair chance, the list is in alphabetical order – so just because something is listed last that certainly does not mean LEAST! Be sure to scroll through them all!
Andes Hotel and Restaurant
157 Main Street, Andes NY 13731
Phone: (845) 676-4408
The Andes Hotel (est. 1850), offers a 7 day a week restaurant, tavern and motel. Chef and co-owner Ed O’Neill is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America.
Ate-O-Ate Catering and Gourmet Food Truck
Roxbury, NY 12474
Phone: (607) 326-3392
The owners behind this quality catering company get it right. And we’re so thrilled that they have taken over The Shepard Hills Golf course for the summer/fall 2022 season! See the Shepard Hills listing below (listings are alphabetical) for more info. But you can also contact Ate-o-Ate for all sorts of catering from private dinner parties (or private chef) to large weddings and during off season you might find their truck parked down the road from the motel. Ask for their bit-size reuben fritters. They’re like heaven wrapped up in a little ball with a kabangie wowie zowie!
Arkville Bread & Breakfast
43285 State Highway 28,
Arkville NY 12406
Phone: (845) 586-1122
If it’s not on the menu, ASK! Bakery, Breakfast, brunch in an old Caboose. Fun, country, innovative, and the best bread around. Did we mention fun?
746 Main Street, Margaretville, NY 12455
Phone: (845) 586-4884
The word “iconic” seems to be so overused. Every time you turn around something seems to be called iconic these days. But it’s an appropriate label for the Binnekill Restaurant which for decades was a staple for solid, consistent, wonderful dining in our neck of the Catskills. When the creators and original owners had to finally close the doors to enjoy their golden years, the building sat vacant for quite a few years in downtown Margaretville, NY (10 min from Roxbury). Recently re-opened in 2018 under new ownership we are thrilled to relay that the new Binnekill Tavern is back and better than ever! We love how they pay homage to some of the original Binnekill menu items that we all loved for so long while also bringing a refreshing new twist to our local dining scene.
Brushland Eating House
County Highway 6, Bovina Center, NY 13740
Phone: (607) 832-4861
Consistent raves from our guests, this restaurant was founded on the idea that the house that provides the food should be as comforting as the dishes served inside of it. The food needn’t be complicated, either. Brushland revisits the classics, the kinds of dishes that remain scribbled on recipe cards despite having seen centuries worth of culinary evolution. Dishes that will likely conjure memories of relatives or childhood, that favorite cast iron pan or the smell of a warm, bustling kitchen.
Bull and Garland
760 Main Street, Hobart, NY 13788
Phone: (607) 538-3006
Boasting a chef trained in the pubs of London, this cozy hideaway not only knows how to do classic English pub fare with flair, it’s also a lovely drive to get there. Sit by the fire in the winter and you might as well be in Essex. Think low ceilings and hand hewn post and beams. The Scottish Egg and Fish & Chips with a Black and Tan are a must. Ask us about the best directions.
La Cabana Mexican Restaurant
966 Main Street, Fleischmanns, NY 12430
Phone: (845) 254-4966
If you get that I-just-gotta-have-some-Mexican-food-right-now craving, then this one will do it for ya. Don’t expect glamour. In fact, expect fluorescent lighting. However, the restaurant is owned by a Mexican family and all the staff are Mexican, so it’s about as authentic as it gets! And, yes, you can have a margarita too. That’s the most important part.
Main Street, Roxbury NY 12474
Phone: (607) 326-7020
This favorite among locals now delivers to both our Motel and Statton Falls locations! Offering great lunches and dinners (and a full bar), this restaurant saved us during the pandemic with their food deliveries and tireless 7 days/week operation. We will always be grateful! And just a walk down the road from the motel! Make sure to get your order in before 8pm if you would like your meal delivered.

Phone: (845) 679-9800
Arguably the best Italian cuisine in the Catskill and Hudson Valley region. Old renovated farmhouse in a soft minimalist style. One must love soft minimalist old renovated farmhouses.
743 Route 28, Kingston NY 12401
Phone: (845) 338-2424
The Hickory Smokehouse, located on Rt.28 between Kingston and Woodstock offers the finest in traditional and non traditional barbecue-cuisine. Good place to stop if you’re coming or going.
10860 County Highway 18, South Kortright, NY
Phone: (607) 715-0200
The beautiful drive from Roxbury to South Kortright where this hidden gem is located feels a bit like “over the river and through the woods to…”, but it is worth the 20-25 minutes it takes to get there. Quality food and bar in a quaint setting and one of the better options for a Wednesday night when things are slower in the area. Check them out!
53530 State Highway 30, Roxbury, NY 12474
Phone: (845) 231-9051
Right smack in the village of Roxbury, just a walking block from the motel, the supercool Fierce Grizzly is open for dinner Thurs-Sun nights from 6:00pm-9:00pm, but that’s not all! On Fri & Sat nights they stay open till 11:00pm and turn into a wine bar with light tapas! Their produce, meat, & seafood are sourced fresh from the market daily. And in season, they use organic local ingredients from local farmers. Check them out when you stay with us!
The Inn Between
42377 State Highway 28, Margaretville, NY 12455
Phone: (845) 586-4265
Not to be confused with the “Hidden Inn.” Ain’t nothin hidden about The Inn Between cause it’s right on Rt. 28 in Margaretville – just 10 minutes from Roxbury. A good choice for Wednesday nights when a lot of the other area restaurants are closed. Ask for one of the tables overlooking the river!
Woodstock, NY 12498
Phone: (845) 679-5533
One of our favs for lunch in Woodstock. Middle Eastern Cuisine. Anoint yourself in olive oil and then slather on some homemade hummus.

Phone: (845) 688-5099

Maine Black Bear
Rt. 28, Arkville NY
Phone: (845) 586-4004
Don’t go for an opulently elegant dining experience, go for the eclectic “dive” atmosphere with some of the best seafood this side of Ogunquit. You’ll be surprised.
26817 State Highway 23, Stamford, NY 12167
Phone: (607) 652-2372
Ask any local about the best place to go for classic Italian dishes and this will be the first word out of their mouth without hesitation. Nothing fancy about the interior and if you’re looking for an extensive wine list this may not be the place, but OH the homemade sauces! And the garlic knots? TDF!
Ming Moon Kitchen
684 Main Street, Margaretville, NY 12455
Phone: (845) 586-2188
Surprisingly good and fresh chinese take-out. Open late for the Catskills. Only 10 minutes from Roxbury.
44681 NY-28, Arkville, NY 12406
Phone: (845) 586-3474
GREAT brick oven fired pizza and some other specialties. Hands-down the most popular pizza amongst locals. Always busy and extra pluses include open for lunch and open on Tuesdays.
Peekamoose Restaurant and Tap Room
Rt. 28, Big Indian, NY
Phone: (845) 254-6500
With a chef who honed his skills at Manhattan heavy-hitters like Gramercy Tavern and Le Bernadin, you can’t hardly go wrong. And you don’t. And it’s got a wonderfully creative dining area to boot. And it’s only 30 minutes from The Roxbury. And… Highly recommended. If you have to limit your dining choices to only one place during your stay with us, this would be the place. Can you tell we love it?
Route 28, PO Box 592, Phoenicia NY 12464
Phone: (845) 688-9957
Superfun atmosphere, yummy breakfast and lunch and a great place to stop on your way back to the city. Not traditional diner fare, something much better. Much better. Open 7 days a week from 7:00am – 5:00pm. And be sure to check out their fun website!
10 Main St Phoenicia, NY 12464
Recently re-opened after a major renovation, the area is thrilled to have a classic steak-and-seafood restaurant back amongst the local choices!

Wed & Thur 5pm to 10pm, Fri & Sat 5pm to 11pm, Sun 4pm to 10pm.
37166 NY-23, Grand Gorge, NY 12434

Open 7 days/week! We’ve watched these guys grow over the years and you can’t beat their pizza!
Shephard Hills Golf Course
185 Golf Course Road, Roxbury, NY 12474
Phone: (607) 326-7121
Truly one of the most beautiful outdoor settings in the Catskills. And literally just 50 seconds down the road from The Roxbury Motel, it’s perfect for when you don’t want to worry about venturing out further for a cocktail and a bite to eat. And for the summer/fall of 2022, the restaurant has been taken over by our friends at Ate-O-Ate Catering. They will be open on Thursdays and Mondays 5:00-8:00, Fridays and Saturdays 5:00-9:00, and Sundays 11:00-2:00 for a brunch buffet and then 2:00-5:00 for happy hour and tapas. A must for one of your nights with us when it is warm outside and you can sit by the lake. Oh and by the way, some of their Thursday nights have live music!
53470 State Highway 30, Roxbury, NY 12474
Their website slogan says: Coffee. Cafe. Community. And we think that sums up this new addition to the village of Roxbury beautifully! They are doing it right! Wonderful gourmet coffees, teas, and other beverages during all of their hours of operation with breakfast and lunch almost daily. Also ICE CREAM!!!! Another “must” while you stay with us to just go sit on their porch and get your caffeine fix. And walking distance from the motel – just at the end of the block!
Wayside Cider Tap Room
55 Redden Lane, Andes, NY 13731
Go for the truly beautifully designed Catskills-rustic-chic interiors and truly tasty locally made cider choices and some fun bar food, but not the place if you want a full dinner. We love to go and get soup and a charcuterie plate and a flight of choices from the year’s best then decide on what bottle to bring home.
