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

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...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.

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,...More
