My review actually starts in 1966 when I was a freshman in college and one of our favorite hangouts was Jerry's Drive-In. Jerry's not only had car-hops on roller skates delivering the food, but they had the best golden, flakey, crisp onion rings that I have ever put in my mouth. Fast forward to this summer when my wife and... More

Oct 3 was a gorgeous fall day and lunch at White Cottage made it perfect. The setting on the river with a glider table was a bonus for the great food. My husband had a fresh, made- to- order bacon cheeseburger that was juicy and delicious. I had the lobster roll with big chunks of lobster & celery. The onion... More

We have been frequenting Woodstock for years. Never stopped here - thought the menu was just fried seafood. Delighted to learn otherwise. We had lunch here 3 days in a row. I had lobster rolls each day, my husband had the lobster roll, chicken sandwich, and footlong hot dog. Arrive a bit early as they get busy fast. And they... More

This is a nicely run ice cream stand with good Fast food. It is one of the more moderately priced places to grab a quick meal in Woodstock. Be prepared to wait in line, as it gets pretty busy. The ice cream is good quality, too.

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...

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.
