Interesting Place

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... read more

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!

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.
