Mountain of Disappointment

A group of us made a trek up to lovely Woodstock, VT last weekend. We all stayed at the Apple Hill Inn and had an amazing time. When we did have to pull ourselves away from the inn and the amazing innkeeper Beverlee, it was only for sustenance.

Our first day out we took to the streets of Woodstock center looking for lunch. There was a 30 minute wait at our first choice so we headed across the street to Mountain Creamery. It had a very 70’s diner/kitchen feel which didn’t feel like it’d get an A from the board of health but we weren’t looking for fine dining, just something to keep us going. A greasy spoon would do just fine.

The group covered the menu pretty well: Grilled Cheese, Roast Beef, Turkey Dinner Sandwich. No fries at the place, just chips, slaw, or potato salad. Everything was priced exorbitantly from $9-12 for a sandwich, $6+ for a milkshake. It must have been the biggest dive of a tourist trap I’ve ever seen.

The food was fine but for $12 I might have expected a hot sandwich, some fries, and maybe a waitress that filled up the water glasses. Meh. Avoid it if you can.
