Although, at the October Country Inn, our guests are always served a freshly cooked country breakfast, if Edie and I want to treat ourselves to breakfast out when we don’t have guests, or have a leisurely lunch, Drewski’s On the River is our first choice. Formerly known as Blanche and Bill’s Pancake House, it was a long-standing local favorite breakfast and lunch spot when Blanche retired and left it in the capable hands of Chef Andrew Geller and his wife Francine. Chef Andrew is a Culinary Institute of America trained chef. He brings his considerable training and skills to this small, family owned and operated Vermont eatery as if it were a four-star Paris bistro.
Drewski’s On the River is located at 586 U.S. Route 4, West Bridgewater, Vermont. Just 1.5 mile east of Killington Ski Resort’s Skyeship Base Lodge. Chef Andrew and Francine took over in May 2016 and continue to serve Blanche’s famous pancakes and waffles. These recipies have been perfected for more than 40 years, and continue the tradition of serving fine, homemade, fresh, locally sourced food, in a warm and friendly atmosphere. It’s Chef Andrew’s promise to prepare to order, and serve, only the best food Vermont has to offer.
But it doesn’t stop with breakfast and lunch, Chef Andrew expanded his culinary service to include seasonal, bi-weekly Tuesday Night Dinner at Drewski’s On the River, as well as making his restaurant available for private events, dinners, or parties. Whatever the need, Chef Andrew will cook for you. Most of Drewski’s On the River menu items are made to order, guaranteeing the highest quality, and best tasting home-cooked meals possible. Drewski’s On the Rive strives to uphold its long standing tradition of preparing fine food, and serving it with friendliness, and humor with the aim of enticing you to return with a smile and an appetite.
