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

Stop in and try this on Friday. Unlike most catfish opportunities down south, you can get a couple of plate lunch veggies instead of the traditional slaw and fries. Also... farm raised catfish... Not some frozen stuff from Asia!

The service is good, and the food is decent. The atmosphere is a little weird--strange layout and kind of run down. I have gone for lunch, where their lunch specials are good.

The food is great, the place is cozy as in crowded, it is a smaller resturant, but didn't bother us. It is kinda part of the charm. There is no elevator so you must take the stairs or wait for a downstairs table. We loved the food, the location which cant be helped is on the downside.

If you're an area local, you know all about the White House, but if you're not, and don't know about it, you're missing something really good. Plate lunches Monday through Friday with great home cooking at bargain prices. If you're not looking for a plate lunch, the burger platter is best on the planet, and listen up... real potatoes in...

30 year ago, this was the place for me. We'd gather here, eat a good meal and perhaps go out for a few drinks, later. While that's still likely a good reason to visit, I've found the food quality has declined over the years. Camden has several wonderful Mexican restaurants, that I would choose over the WHC. The home cooking,... More

This place has seen better days and the waitstaff has seen better days also. I ordered a sprite and it tasted horrible. Dont know what was wrong with it but it did not taste like a sprite should taste. I ordered an appetizer that was so uninspired that i have forgotten what i ordered. No matter, it doesnt really matter.... More

If you are looking for something classy this is not your place. This is just good home cooking with a cafe atmosphere. Great service and cheap prices. Would go back any day
