This restaurant closed last year. Probably will reopen summer of 2014. It was a great place with entertainment but for some reason it just didn't make it.

So sad to see this place closed for good... we always made it our first stop in town for their excellent whitefish pate and bloody Mary's... have moved on to Stafford's Weathervane, but not the same pub atmosphere.

They closed for the winter and did not re-open in May as the website states. Sign is gone and a real estate posting in the front window.

This place always makes sure to focus on there priorities, which has been and will always be seafood. The actual restaurant itself is huge, a bar is downstairs there are three floors, and there is a great view of the harbor. Lots of great restaurants in Charlevoix, but if you're looking for seafood this would be a great choice. Nice... More

We enjoyed our meal on a Thursday night in the fall. They were not busy. The food was great, the waitress helpful. After we were seated and had ordered, we found out there was a third level having happy hour with half off appetizers and drink specials, we wished the hostess had told us our options before seating us in...

You have to go up to the top floor and try their oysters on the half shell....fresh and delicious! It was a cool night, but with the heaters on, it was perfect. Great view of the inland lake, and we had the whole top floor to ourselves.

We were at Whitney's in August, and we were so looking forward to the fresh oysters since it was the restaurant's claim to fame. Unfortunately, we were disappointed in what we were served. The oysters did not appear to be fresh, they were served lukewarm (no ice, the meat of all were cut prior to serving and not sure how... More

You were so nice to take time out of your busy day to write a comment about Whitney's. I am glad you enjoyed Annie as your server. She always has a smile on her face and loves to make people happy.
