It was a rainy day and our first stop only had outdoor seating which was a non-starter. We popped in to White Cottage and I order a Lobster Roll and my wife had Lobster on Salad. The only difference was that mine was on a bun and hers was on lettuce. The lobster was very fresh. Service was quick at the order counter and there was constant flow of people converging on this place. On a sunny day, we would eat on the outside.

The restaurant is a seasonal operation. The interior is very clean, and the menu is fairly large for this type of an establishment. Be sure to check the specials. They have the best onion rings I have had in a LONG time.

My only complaint is that they don't take debit/credit cards. In this day and age that is not at all customer friendly.

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.
