Fish csmp food.

We enjoy the atmosphere very much. The food is good when cooked completely. The servers are always very attentive. It's a bit over priced but its good.

Always disappointed. Drinks are weak. Service always slow. Food always below par. It's on Doctor's Lake - that's about it.

This is my third review of Whitey's. One good, one not so good, and now, one really good. We ate inside, in a booth,on our last lunch time visit to escape the unrelenting summer heat. Maybe the service is just better inside, but my wife and I had no complaints. My wife had the catfish platter, and I had the... More

Fun, noisy, casual old time Florida fish house. Service was 1 step up from self service. Waitress handed napkin wrapped flatware to the person at the end of the table to pass around. The same procedure for beverages while mixing up the diet and regular beverages, and the same for passing the entrees. There was a mistake with the bill... More

If you want a fun afternoon, visit on Fri or Sat. between 5 and 9 on the Tiki Deck, for a variety of music each week. See a really beautiful sunset over the lake and enjoy many types of fried and non fried foods.

A beer, biker, fried food joint at the west end of Doctors Lake. You can drive your car or take your boat there. Nothing special but the fried oysters and shrimp are a pretty good choice. Burgers are greasy but tasty.

I took my daughter, she had all you could eat crab legs, she said they were really good. She stuffed herself..lol. I had the Caesar salad with blackened grilled salmon. The salad... More
