Hype

I am not sure what all the hype is about when it comes to this restaurant. Average taste, nothing spectacular. They do have a salad bar but regular foods on this. Half the time they don't have soup which is listed I guess for only dinner time.

I first visited Whitey's in the late 50's for a great milkshake. 50+ years later, it is still my 'stopping place' for Fri. night fish to go, or a must for entertaining out-of-town visitors. It has the best salad bar and baked or deep fried cod in the county.

LOVE the salad bar! It has lots of homemade pasta and vegetable salads. (It comes with most dinners or you can get it for a meal for around $8) Also has the best fish in town. The only thing I didn't really like from here was the Seafood Alfredo. The sauce was too thick and the pasta was drenched in... More

Visited in August 2014 as I was told of their famous fish and chips. Good overall and a wonderful salad bar. Would return again.

Famous for their fish and chips, which are good, I find other menu items also excellent. Their New York Strip is a great value. You wouldn't expect it to be that good but it is. Salad bar is wonderful. If you get the fish and chips try the hashbrowns with onions and cheese to go along. You'll be glad you... More

My wife and myself haven't been there in years, just kinda forgot about this place. What shame that was. We started out with the gator bites, deep fried to perfection. A little salty a little bite of heaven. I place another order for take out. Great product. My wife had the chicken pot pie, you could see it was made... More

I've been eating fish and chips my whole life as it is one of my favorite meals. I've probably had it at over 500 restaurants and Whiteys is the best I have ever had.
