Most of my kids live outta town; when they come home this is where they want to go...and of course Angelos! Whitey's is good....fish is fresh....but for the most part, it feels and tastes like gordon's foods is supplying them alot! There is never the feeling that there is a great...or any,really, chef around! It sure doesn't come close to... More

Food was not hot, not fresh. Manager does not supervise the staff. Waitresses say if he's not sitting at the bar he is gone. Mike needs to retire. No people skills.

Every time I go back home to Davison, it is a must that I go to Whitey's. It's an old family tradition! I've always loved the fish and chips with hash browns.

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....
