Our waiter, Juan was great. Started with Chickpea fritters with short ribs. Had the pork tenderloin called the corruption and the jimmy carter chicken with coconut curry sauce. Both were amazing! As was dessert.

My sister and I were greeted by a friendly man who gave us the choice to sit in or out. We sat on the patio as the sun was going down. Our server recommended rum punch. We both loved ours--they were perfect, especially for our one night getaway sans kiddos. We were both very impressed by the plantain app. Lots... More

It's always fun when the weather is good and you can sit outside to watch the world go by. Food was consistent - not fancy, but certainly filling. Service was very friendly.

Very good. The menu is small but that means quality. Our waitress was able to tell us about every item and the daily special which WAS actually quite special. The tomato soup was one of the best I've ever had. And the LBJ lobster sandwich is inventive and I recomend it.

We by chance came upon Saugatuck after visiting Holland, MI. Our family with children 8 and 11 spent the day wandering the streets, docks and climbing up to Mt Baldhead. After much walking and exploring we were tired and hungry. This welcome funky oasis was family friendly with fast service and great food. It was eclectic with variations on flavors... More

Had a great experience here at the White House! Good was pretty good, not 5 star but to be expected, but the atmosphere and superb service made up for everything, esp after the Butler left a sour taste in our mouth. I had the seafood linguine which was decent but, overwhelming. My husband had the special which was a delicious... More

This restaurant was right next to the B&B we were staying at, and the menu looked interesting on-line, so decided to try it out. The menu was not extensive, but everything sounded and looked good, and when we saw other people getting their food, our appetites increased. The food was creatively and tastefully prepared, and portion sizes were generous. A... More
