Very nice people

I'm not a huge fan of the vinegar based bbq, but this one was okay. I also had the onion rings and tasted some fried okra. They were all good. The staff was very friendly. Definitely worth a stop

Wife and I went there this week for breakfast. Walked in and looked at the sanitation grade. It was 84. Walked out--enough said. There are too many good clean places to eat in.

Like a lot of BBQ joints, it's not fancy, but boy is this food good. We like the BBQ atand El's, but the nod goes to the White Swan. The iced tea is delicious and the steak fries are fresh and very hot. The only negative is that the bathrooms could be updated a little. They're clean , but could... More

Great early AM breakfast. We stopped in early AM and got a good, hot breakfast. Right down the street from Atlantis Lodge

We had to wait till later in the week for them to be open later than 2:00p.m, off season hours. We had good bbq and hush puppies and the prices are good for the beach

The place is small in appearance, but the service was outstanding and the food was great! Located beside a gas station it could easily be overlooked. We went in the early afternoon so it was not busy and we had the place to ourselves for the most part. We ordered the Fried Chicken which was great. Nice and crunchy on... More

My family of 3 went for dinner in the early evening. We were the only patrons and the waitress was so nice and friendly. I ordered fried chicken and it was yummy but the baked beans were absolutely delicious! My husband got ribs and said they were outstanding. My picky daughter had pulled pork and said it was very good.... More

We walked in 5 minutes before closing, not realizing they closed at 2pm off-peak season. We ordered and started eating in before we realized it. We offered to pack up to go, and were refused. After eating we were able to chat with the staff even longer about our visit and hometown. Friendly folk to say the least. The BBQ... More
