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...

Nice menu with an array of options including seafood, sandwiches, burgers, soups and salads. I had fried scallops, fried mushrooms and fried clams were all good.

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.

A local shopkeeper recommended White Cottage to us when we asked for a suggestion of a casual place to eat. We were traveling with our dog, so a place with outdoor seating was especially nice. She told us the fish & chips at White Cottage were "a-mazing" so that's what my husband and I both ordered. They were a great... More

We chose this place based on previous reviews and had a mixed experience. I ordered the seafood chowder $4.95 and a medium sized fried belly clams $15.95 and they both were excellent and the chowder tasted homemade. However my wife order the clam chowder $3.95 which tasted like poor quality canned soup and the clam strips $5.95 which tasted like... More

The owner of our Country Inn suggested this very casual place for seafood chowder and fresh cooked fish sandwiches. The cook/owner came out to talk to us and assured us it was fresh and homemade. Very good!! We sat outside later on the glider picnic tables along the scenic river. What a way to start our vacation.

Their fried fish dinner is also a to die for meal. The owners rebuilt after Hurricane Irene devastated the restaurant back in 2011. What a sad sight that was. Folks in Woodstock would be lost without this restaurant.

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.
