We live right down the road, so we eat here a couple times a season. WC is fantastic. You're gonna wait in a line but soooo worth it. Great artery clogging favorites and now newer healthy food options make this homey favorite a hit with...More

Food was delicious! The onion rings perfectly cooked and crispy, the clams were absolutely wonderful and their tartar sauce was the perfect compliment. The view alone was just perfect!

The best fried clams I've found in Vermont. The service is fast and friendly and the river is a nice distraction from the busy rt.4 traffic. Also I believe it is a BYOB establishment

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.

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!
