Didn't know what to expect of this place. Wife found it and we went- not disappointed at all! Great portions of food. Atmosphere was rather mellow, as we went early on a Saturday afternoon. They have a live music every night. Bar looks well stocked. Wait staff was courteous and friendly.

I was vacationing by myself. After a very stressed month and a kinda bad day, I stopped in to relax. I have to tell you Zach the bartender was absolutely fabulous to me. Made me feel at home and safe. It was my birthday. He even brought me cheese cake out of the blue. As it got busy, reggae night,... More

Breakfast was good. I had the cornbeef hash & eggs with fresh squeezed OJ. Ive never had breakfast/dinner here before but their evening concerts & bar scene are LOTS of fun. Great night life spot and great location. Parking is a little challenging but worth it. I'll definitely go back for breakfast again.

I had country fried chicken, wasn't delicious but i ordered a side of mushroom risotto which was yumm! So the risotto compensated for the chicken. Ordered a share steak dish they brought it already half n half in separate dishes which was nice of them. Overall service and food was very good!

The White House is located in downtown Lauuna Beach. They offers a large selection of breakfast items and much more. The food is good and the price is right in a very expensive town.

We have been going to the White House before the Pageant of the Masters for years. The early bird deal is always the best value of all the places in the area. It is now only several dishes, but they are all excellent. I had the Chicken Marsala and it was perfect.

Last Saturday night I ventured into the White House about 10:00 p.m. for a late night bite to eat and perhaps dancing. It was rated as a popular place so I was surprised by the lack of people. At the far end of the long club was a laser show, about 20 people dancing and very loud techno music. Unbearable... More
