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!

Ate-O-Ate Gourmet Food Truck Email
Roxbury, NY 12474
Phone: (607) 326-3392
The owners behind this quality gourmet food truck get it right. Quality meets technology. Check with us for when the truck is parked right in town or just go to their website to find out where the truck might be showing up on any given day. Oh and did we mention that you can also pay and order online? And don’t let the “food truck” concept fool you into thinking they’re limited to Chevy-van size quantities. Contact them for all sorts of catering from private dinner parties to large weddings. Ask for their bit-size reuben fritters. They’re like heaven wrapped up in a little ball with a kabangie wowie zowie!

Binnekill Tavern Email
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 Email
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 Email
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
Our local favorite now delivers to both our Motel and Statton Falls locations! They offer great hot breakfast spreads and consistent hearty lunches by day and darn good cuisine by night! And now with their full liquor license, this town staple enables you to start your day with a Mimosa and end it with a martini and all just a block away from The Roxbury! Cheerio and ta ta and all that rot! Make sure to get your order in before 8pm if you would like your meal delivered.

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.

Peekamoose Restaurant and Tap Room Email
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?

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.
