The Whitney is a small restuarant that has great food. The chef always prepares excellent food. And one can enjoy a nice cocktail, too!

We do hate to lose a customer, but as you know we are a small restaurant, and once in a while you may wait 10-15 min due to circumstances beyond our control. We apologize and hope in the future you'll try us again.

The moment you enter you feel welcome. A respite for the weary traveler... Outstanding Classic cuisine prepared with love. Tall pours with an extremely professional staff. Save room for dessert. Absolutely None better in town.
