I can't believe I've never been here before. The drive from southern Genesee County was worth it. The Crab Bombs were the bomb, and the fish was amazing! Friendly and fast service.

Our group of seven enjoyed a wonderful meal. The menu was large and varied. We all selected seafood. My frog legs were very good. Our server, Karli, was very attentive.

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

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
