Fantastic Spinach Dip with Chips, Rustic atmosphere as well as outdoor seating.

This place has a very good Spinach Dip appetizer. The atmosphere is rustic and they also have outdoor seating during the nicer weather months. The food here tastes freshly made. This is a local establishment that is not some big chain that ships things in, which is great to have things fresh... read more

We came from out of town with Trip Advisor showing this place to be open. We get there and their hours show closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Are you kidding? Lol! What a joke

We stopped at Whitt's on the way to visit family. It is located just outside Effingham. It was a Friday night and we expected it to be busy. It was not very busy however. The interior has a bunch of tables and also a bar on the left side of the building. The bar sits about 8 people but there... More

I was in town for a fiddle contest, and stopped in Witt's to get something to take back to the motel. I chose a smoked brisket dinner, with baked potato and beans as my two sides. It also came with cornbread. Brisket was good, as were the beans & cornbread (bread a little sweeter than I prefer). I was in... More

We stopped here on our long drive to Florida. I was a little disappointed with the meal. The BBQ flavor wasn't what I had hoped for. It wasn't bad, just not great. I don't know what the meatloaf was made of, but I wouldn't order that again. My son enjoyed his BBQ ribs and pulled pork. My other son enjoyed... More

This place is a little out of town, it sits by itself out in the country. We went in on a Sunday evening and had the place almost to our selves. We got the ribs and the pulled pork , both were very good, we would visit here again ! I asked why it was so empty when the food... More

My wife and I ate at Witt's for the first time last night. What a great treat. I had the baby back ribs; my wife had the brisket. Both were excellent. The baked beans are the best I've ever tasted. The services was great, the family atmosphere was exactly what we wanted, and it was very enjoyable. Note: Our GPS... More
