Twice named one of the top 150 burger joints in the US and the only one in Vermont, White Cottage is Open early May to Columbus Day. We are a traditional dairy bar and lots more! Located one mile west of town on Rt 4, we serve char broiled burgers, homemade onion rings, great sandwiches, fresh whole belly clams, Maine lobster salad rolls, fresh crisp salads and 30 flavors of ice cream. Our customers also enjoy steamed Maine lobster dinners on the weekends in the summer. Sit outside at one of our many picnic tables overlooking the Ottauquechee River (Moms bring the towels and bathing suits -the kids are going in!) At White Cottage, we've got something for everyone! Phone orders always welcome. We are fully handicapped accessible.

Great ice cream + wifi

This place has 3 of the best things. They have ice cream, wifi, and a swimming spot. Well, not swimming exactly, but you can definitely wade in the river.

Stopped here for lunch on our way out of town. The service was slow and the fried clams mediocre and overpriced.

What can I say about the White Cottage Snack Bar. It sits along the Ottaquechee River near Rt. 4 and has a great view of the river. A beautiful grassy area south of the snack bar is right down at river level and has picnic tables, etc. where kids (and adults) can wade in the river while enjoying an ice... More

We visited this beautiful little restaurant during our trip to Woodstock this summer. And we loved it. We order grilled chicken sandwich and fried haddock burger. The food was good, but more than the food whats special about the restaurant is the view that you get to see! A lovely stream of water flowing across and a great way to... More

Each year I vacation in Plymouth,VT and each year a visit to White Cottage is a must! It's become a family tradition according to my grandchildren. The food is good, of ample portions, and the fried clams are some of the best this Ocean State girl has experienced. We sit outside on picnic tables, although you can eat inside, and... More

I remember going to this snack bar in the 60's, when I was a kid. I just recall getting ice cream back then, but now, oh my! the seafood is so yummy! We had the haddock, the whole clams, and the scallops. All delicately fried, all delicious! When we go back, I will get the scallops and the onion rings.... More

I have eaten at White Cottage many times in past few years. I ordered the clam basket and a single order of clams. There were only 8 clams and only 4 had bellies. I asked staff person if this was all you get. I was told it is a 4oz portion. I was given a few more clams but it... More

We stopped at the White Cottage Snack Bar while we were heading east into Woodstock. It's a very unassuming place and the food we had took us by surprise. We first lunched on freshly grilled hamburgers with the works. You can tell they take care in making their sandwiches. The buns were fresh and warm. The tomatoes were sweet and... More
