Visited Woodstock, IL just to look around, after all it's the home of "Groundhog Day" and we decided to get something to eat. D.C. Cobb's Tavern and Eatery at 226 Main St. had just what we were looking for, a really good pub burger. When you walk in you are greeted by very friendly staff, sit where you want. We... More

I'm glad we got reservations, because the place was packed! We were seated on time, but it took at least 10 minutes to get our server's attention. The menu was very diverse, and I picked a seasonal turkey sandwich special. The wait for food was about 45 minutes. My sandwich was excellent but my side of mac and cheese was... More

The gourmet burgers are very good and are offered with a nice selection of sides. We've tried both standard beef and black bean burgers, onions rings, sweet potato tots and soups and all were good. I've had the chicken caesar wrap and enjoyed that too. Kids like the cheese curds as a side. There is a great selection of beer... More

Looking for a place to eat we went to DC Cobbs. Sat for a drink and looked at the menu. Was right in front of the kitchen and the food looked real good. Unfortunatly the drinks were only half good so we wandered on.

Ask locals and they do not lie. A great place for burgers and drinks with out of town family. Make your own mac and cheese was a hit too

Great gourmet burgers and a huge selection of craft beers. We love the black bean burgers. They come with all of the same toppings as the other burgers. We have also had their buffalo chicken flat bread. Very good. We are usually there at least every couple of months.

The atmosphere was dark on this sunny day, but the waiter was friendly and brightened up the place. At noon, the place was empty. We had great service, wonderful fresh food, and enjoyed the quiet. The salads were great, with fresh ingredients, and wonderful dressings. The burgers were also fabulous! I will enjoy trying it some evening. Looks like a... More

I stipped in for dinner. The food was typical for this kind of place and the beer selection,while better than most, was ok. Staff was friendly and helpful $10 minimum on cards was a little out dated and comes off cheap.

The only reason I don't give them 5 full stars is that the ambiance is totally lacking. That aside - the food is great! It boasts without a doubt the best burger in town plus the best gourmet mac-n-cheese outside of mom's own kitchen! Plus it has a great beer list and the staff is very knowledgable on the different...

My teenage son and I ate at Cobb's - great burgers! We had a lot of fun with the menu - the names and variety of the burgers. Service was friendly and consistent. The server even offered us a board game to play. We picked connect 4!
