I've heard of White's for years but finally got to try it out. It was Thursday so it cost us $21.95 each. All the fried seafood was way too salty. There were two gumbos on the buffet and both were nasty. It's hard to ruin gumbo but both of these were a real fail! The peach cobbler was slimy. I can't figure why they would serve something like that. The macaroni and cheese was more like bowtie cheese soup....very weird!
It wasn't all bad. The whole catfish, boiled shrimp, and Washington Parish watermelon were all really good! The waitresses were also very friendly. But for the money and the drive I expected something better overall.
Sorry, won't be going back anytime soon nor will I recommend White's to any friends.

White's is an awesome restaurant all around! The staff are friendly, the location it's easy to find, and the food is delicious and always hot and fresh. My family has been going to Whites for years now and we have never been disappointed. The fried catfish is to die for!

White’s is located way out in the Country on Highway 445 (take a nice drive in the beautiful county) out from Loranger Louisiana and is a large cinder block building with a "Plain Jane Interior." Maybe a bit pricey for families---Cost + Tip = 2 adult buffet's $58.00.
You can dress up but you don’t need to when eating here, unbutton/unzip and enjoy! We ate from the buffet and everything we tried was delicious. Great boiled crawfish and sweet white whole catfish…yum-yum! Apparently everyone loves snow crab because as soon as it was placed out on the bar, the line formed and it was gone! Excellent service is given by the staff and the owner is very friendly and seems happy to see you.
I did find an issue with the way you can come in or exiting the restaurant. There are two entrance/exit doors and it is a bit confusing if when you are paying your bill and you attempt to go out the left side of the counter. You are attempting to exit the dining area when patrons are coming in on you. It is a confusing tight squeeze! Management needs to work on this.....

Family owned and operated. Laid back atmosphere. The fried seafood doesn't all taste the same and isn't greasy. Usually 3-4 boiled seafood options. We eat there at least twice a month.
