My oldest daughter has a ranking of milkshakes and I like to rank my French fries. This place fell way short on the ranking today. According to my daughter, the best milkshake is found at Tozziers in Bethel. We traveled cross country last year, her second ranked milkshake is in New Mexico, take her rankings seriously if you like the... More

We decided to come to the White Cottage Snack Bar after reading about them in a Vermont Explorer's Guide. We knew they were legendary in the area and that they had sustained heavy damage during Hurricane Irene. We wanted to come to show support for their rebuild. We ordered at the window from a very nice and welcoming gentleman. I... More

There aren't many place for casual dining that have such a great setting. Once you order your food, you can take it outside and choose from unique porch swing-like tables or even go right on the bank of the river and sit on a picnic table. The food is good, what you would expect from a snack bar with offerings... More

Order your food at the window. Sandwiches, some soups, chili, fried seafood, hamburgers and hotdogs. I chose the clam strips and side of slaw. Tasty fried food! Keep in mind that this is a CASH ONLY restaurant. I chose to sit inside and take advantage of their free wifi. There are picnic style tables outside along the river. Take a... More

this little roadside restaurant had a very varied menu. Everything from BLTs to Crab. The staff was very friendly. The outside tables also included canopied swinging benches by a river. The food was good too.

After driving past this place for years, both before the floods and after the re-build, we finally stopped in for dinner. We'd heard good things about it from local friends, and it turns out they were absolutely right. We both chose fried seafood; my wife got her favorite whole clams (she hates the strips) and I ordered my usual fisherman's... More

We often go to Maine from New York, and the White Cottage is our first rest stop, We have our chihuahuas with us, and we take them for a walk down by the river. There are always children playing in the river or on the shore. Then we split up, I go to the window and order the food, and... More

We had fish and chips and fried clams. Wish we had order the fried clam strips instead of the fried clams. It was still a good dinner and we ate outside at a picnic table and enjoyed watching kids play in the river. They have a good selection of food and a great selection of ice cream with huge portions.... More

This place has 3 of the best things. They have ice cream, wifi, and a swimming spot. Well, not swimming exactly, but you can definitely wade in the river.

Stopped here for lunch on our way out of town. The service was slow and the fried clams mediocre and overpriced.
