Very good went there as a 2nd option because it was a humid day and ventilation was perfect. Customer service was excellent as well from the bus boy to the waitress.

We have been going to the Pageant for 10 years and wee always go to the White House for Dinner before. We have had as little as 4 and as much as 12 people in our group. They always make room for us and the food is great. We order of the early bird which has a lot of great... More

Like many others have said in their reviews of White House, the food is okay, but the service is top notch. The entire waitstaff was friendly, personable, attentive, and helpful. The food, however, was just average. I don't even think I finished it. We enjoyed the waffle ice cream sandwich, though. If you're looking for good service, go here. If... More

We were feeling so lucky to score a table here on a Saturday night July 11,2015 about 7pm. The host and busboy were gracious and welcoming. But our waitress Shana brought the good vibes to a screeching halt with her curt and rushed attitude. I don't know what her problem was but she ruined the dinner for us. Too bad,... More

Just eaten there and had a very good meal at reasonable prices. Waiting staff are both friendly and very attentive. Varied menu offers something for everyone. We took the chicken tikka masala (good, but we prefer more spice), seared mahi mahi and ginger salad (really great) and spicy sirloin (great). We sat outside and spent dinner people-watching, which was great.

I walked to the White House for breakfast, because it was earlier than the time I could have breakfast at my hotel. I sat outside and was waited on by a very friendly British waiter. I had bacon, eggs, potatoes and an English muffin for under $10, including my diet coke. It was very tasty - the scrambled eggs were... More

We were looking for a place to watch a women's world cup game. This restaurant had TV's in the bar and thought it would be a good place to watch the game. We left at half-time. The waiter was good, but the food wasn't.

The food here was good not great but the service was really good. I also noticed the bar attached had a cool relaxed atmosphere with a friendly bartender.

A wonderful place to stop by for breakfast. The meals are big enough to share and the bloody Mary's are terrific. The lunch and dinner menu has a wide selection. This is a great stop off point after a walk on the boardwalk.

The food was good, not great, and the waitstaff was friendly but hit and miss with the service. You should never have to ask for refills of coffee. Breakfast servers should know this Sat on the patio which was a mistake since it is on a busy street.
