Stopped for a drink and to listen to live music. Two separate areas - bar area with high pub style seating and another area with a mixture of tables by the band. Difficult to find a spot to sit in the area with the band. Suggest arriving before the band begins if interested in being part of that action.

We went on the first weekend (Saturday) of their reopening, and was a bit disappointed. The prices were higher, and the salmon appetizer we had tasted like it can straight from a can. We shared a piece of our friends pizza, which was ok, but the prices had gone up 4-6 dollars. But what we really came for was the music, and it was some kind of bluesy, harmonica infested loudness of which we could not understand a single word. To loud, drinks ok, but we left early and had a nightcap at the Sand Bar. If only they get the music on track, we will be back.

Food is not why you go to the White House. They have their own wines which are nothing special. Entertainment during tourist season.

Interesting local hangout with music and limited menu. Loved the casual attitude of the staff.Local bands make this the perfect midweek hangout.
