The best clam chowder around, each time we stay in Petsokey we go to Whitecaps and we have never been disappointed. We stayed this past week and were treated to the view of the lake from upstairs, wow is all I can say. The menu has offerings fresh caught fish and the chef's prepare the meals well. You will not be disappointed, this time we had soup and appetizers because we wanted ice cream later and were not disappointed, the appetizers were as filling as the entree's but a lot less expensive. The atmosphere was very romantic, and we really had a good time

We decided to split 3 apps and after that, we never had to order dinner. So hearty and delicious! Crab quesadilla is to die for!

Large party for lunch made our service a tiny bit slower but the food made the wait worth it! Atmosphere was great and why we come back summer after summer!

Bad service, overpriced, food was not special or unique in any way. Sitting outside can be very noisy - it's right on a 3-way intersection - and the view of the water is so-so

We ate outside on a very pleasant early evening. The food was good, the service very good, but I would not do it again because of the very loud traffic on HY. 31 right outside the patio. Perhaps have a drink ourside but then move inside for dinner.
