We stopped here for lunch on our way to our Hotel in Woodstock. The food was fanastic and the location was great it was raining the day we visited but if it had been a nice day the outside seating near the river looked wonderflu.

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...More

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...More

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!
