“CLOSED!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

Being replaced by Hobbs sometime in future. NO LOSS!

Back when it was open, their food was "average". Only the bar was ever busy.

“Such a shame”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

We have been coming here on a regular basis for over5 years and have watched a steady decline. This most recent visit has made us finally give it up for good. We should have known when the front door had a large sign indiczting that due to unanticipated circumstances they are unable to take credit cards. Ok, no problem,things happen but when each menu (dirty and ripped menus) had the same notice on them it gave me the idea that his isnot a temporary problem. Also, many menu items had stickers covering them showing theywere unavailable. The placewas filthy with flies and rotten carpets. Honestly, i do notknow why westayed, especially when we were seated in the back (no other customers) and the owner is right next to us the entire time swiping giftcards through the computer causing the printer to make a loud god-awful noise repeatedly for a half hour. Really? She couldhave done that any other time or maybea different computer?
The spinach artichoke dip was delicious but served with ritz crackers? We asked our server for pita chips which she graciously brought. I feltbad for the server,she was very nice and did a good job but on a friday nite at 6:00 she should have had more than one table. I used the bathroom and ran into another waitress that was cleaning the bathroom! Poor thing :(
Unfortunately we have to find another local spot for food and drinks while in the area of our vacation home. And we will tell all of our friends and family that use our house not to bother with thewhittier house anymore.
