Deceptively larger than it appears from the outside, this place is known for its fish and chips. Made in several different variations ( regular, coconut, garlic, and others), be prepared to wait I you go on Friday evening! The salad bar is good, if a little quirkily, as it is split into 2 sections with some things in both sections,... More

I've been eating at Whitey's ever since I can remember. They have the best fish and chips, a great salad bar and wonderful appetizers. I love their seasonal meals, like the perch, bluegill and walleye platter. My Mom wasn't in the mood for seafood so she ordered chicken pot pie and it was huge and tasty. The staff is excellent...

Pleasantly surprised. You never know with places that claim great fish and chips but i now understand why there were ppl waiting outside to get in. A very good light batter on their fish making for a very tasty dinner.

Fish is delicious and they will cook it the way you want it. I love the steamed blackened fish and always get the salad bar. The peas and peanuts is my favorite. Salad fixings are plentiful and they have many other side dishes to choose from.

Whitney's has been in business in Davison for a long time and has developed quite a reputation for wonderful fish and chips. Their fish is wonderful, but anything that I have ordered has been delicious. I especially enjoy their salad bar selections. Always fresh and tasty. We utilize their take out window on occasion and have been very happy, each... More

One of the few places that has a great salad bar.....all you can eat is a great, healthy option. The NY steak is also excellent. Prices are very fair. Very crowded on Friday....

I frequent Whiteys for their fish and chips. I attend there i would say twice a month. The service can be slow at times, espeicially during dinner rush. It is very pricey compared to other fish and chip joints, but i have to say, the food is worth it. If you dine in, you get unlimited salad bar with fish... More

This place was dirty. Wait staff was ok.the 2 pieces of fish was so small it looked like gold fish. and $12.99... More

Visited this place for the first time with a group of 6 on a Tuesday evening around 6:30. No wait for a table. Fast and friendly service. All of our entrees came with unlimited salad bar which included the traditional salad bar but also a large assortment of pasta salads, cottage cheese, puddings etc. Their fan favorite fish and chips...
