The food was amazing and tons of it. Our server, Denise was impeccable even though they were clearly busy. The price was extremely fair. For a little restaurant in middle of no where it pretty amazing.

I think whitey's is just average. They're known for their fish dinners, but I would call it average at best. Prices are average, and they do serve drinks.

Whitey's never disappoints. The classic fish is always hot and flavorful. The salad bar, while downsized over time, is still cold and fresh with many choices along with the famous coleslaw and macaroni salad. Hot, fresh bread is a newer tradition. Coconut shrimp and lobster bisque round out a wonderful meal. The Hilgendorf boys are keeping it new and fresh... More

It was my first trip to Davison and was told about Whitey's. I chose the Salmon Salad from the lunch menu. Best salad ever!!! I was there the next day and ordered the Coconut shrimp appetizer with the salad bar. Amazing shrimp and Raspberry sauce. I hope to be out there for work again soon. I will make sure to... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant, The restaurant offers a large selection of seafood or maybe I should say food from the waters. Alligator is on the menu. This was my first time eating alligator and I thought it was delicious. Very well cooked and the batter was not heavy. My uncle had frog legs which I did... More

They are known around the world for their fish and it doesnt disappoint. Worked there 30 yrs ago and portions have downsized them upsized over the years but the flavor is just as good as ever. But the best thing to me is the coleslaw. Next best to me Moms and Ive tried it all over in my travels. Great... More

I agree with the "hype" review - nothing spectacular. I ordered broiled walleye, which was over-cooked. My husband ordered the fish and chips, which was under-cooked. My son didn't like his fish and chips. I didn't notice until I was heating the leftovers up that it too was under-cooked. The portions were average. There was a salad bar that had... More

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.
