When you visit a roadside snack bar that offers fried clams and ice cream, it's pretty clear what kind of establishment you're looking for. White Cottage delivers exactly what you'd expect with tasty food in a clean restaurant.

We got the chicken fingers, onion rings and one hotdog. Two large drinks. $24. Ehh. The chicken fingers must be frozen like the kind at the hotel in Layton NJ. Generic. They're okay but geez. Onion rings were great. Sat on the swinging bench. They put out more picnic tables too.

Nice, little "snack bar" where we grabbed lunch during our trip through Woodstock. The menu had a good selection to fit anyone's appetite. Prices were reasonable!

Yet another Vermont food location where you can get the kids in the River. White Cottage is a great quick-stop lunch counter style eatery outside the bustle of Woodstock.

Saw all of the cars in the parking lot at 2 o'clock on a Sunday afternoon on our way through town. Thought it was a must try from the way home. Since it's open air there was no surprise there were a lot of flies, but seems to be very popular place for food and ice cream. Love that you... More

Great restaurant, fresh -refreshing food and atmosphere. I was on summer holiday from London. I tasted one of the best sweet potato fries and fish. Restaurant is clean, the staff are helpful and friendly, the scenery-my God is idyllic and has the ambience of a liitle tropical paradise. One of my new favourite places to eat and hang out in...

This snack bar has been renovated after extreme storm damage. Order at the counter with the friendly and knowledgeable staff and when your name is called, pick up your meal to eat inside or outside...great seating options. Typical drive-up restaurant food options including ice cream for dessert. Nothing exceptional about the food quality or portion sizes but we keep going... More

Food was very good. Some of the best hand battered onion rings I have had in a while. Watched them make the batch of onion rings while I waited. The location by the river is great. The kids had a great time beating the heat wading in the water (the adults did too)

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.

Thank dadzone

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!
