Good food, nothing too special, but good

The food was good. There was nothing particularly striking in this restaurant. It seems to be a local favorite. We enjoyed watching the parade of prom kids come in all dressed up to eat upstairs.

It is located in Camden on the main street and it does not look like much. When you step inside it is somewhat cut up and rambling. Has an old look but welcoming. We had ridden down to Camden from Hot Springs to have lunch do to a recommendation we had gotten a few days earlier regarding the White House... More

Tripadvisor needs to change their posting policy. Not allowing postings to be made with less than 100 words is too time consuming and I won't be spending my time. 10 words would be plenty to say what needs to be said. I hope they shorten this requirement or I won't be back.

My husband and I rode our motorcycles to eat at the White House Cafe. It turned out to be EXTREMELY cold the day we rode up. I'm happy to report that it was well worth the trip. I had the grilled pork chop and baked sweet potato. It was one of the best I've ever eaten. Hubby had hamburger steak... More

when we walked in they were not busy, however the tables were filthy, we chalked it up to wemust have missed the rush. A server had her kids at the bar eating. We ordered our food and when we got our salad the lettuce was brown, tomatoes see thru, olives wrinkled, we searched for our server who was too busy... More

Okay, it doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food is by far the BEST around. Best porkchop I ever had in my life. The Mexican food is fab too. And the homemade banana pudding by Anne is amazing. Nice friendly atmospher, wonderful food, great prices. LOVED IT! IT WAS OFF THE CHAIN!

This little restaurant is a surprising little gem. I love to go here for lunch because they are great to get me in and out quickly. Everything I have ever ordered has been generously portioned, and fabulous! You might take a second glance when you see the exterior of the building, but the food does not disappoint!

We we informed about this place from the hotel staff and we were surprised at what it beheld. The interior is kinda chopped up and one section serves short order and plate lunches. The food is decent but typical of this style restaurant. There is a second section (21 and older) the locals call "the hole" which closely resembles a... More
