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

This is a nicely run ice cream stand with good Fast food. It is one of the more moderately priced places to grab a quick meal in Woodstock. Be prepared to wait in line, as it gets pretty busy. The ice cream is good quality,...More
