My boyfriend and I enjoy trying new places when we travel around and love the family owned and dive type of places, but we definitely won't be stopping at Whitehouse again. We stopped in on a Monday afternoon on our way back home from Traverse...More

The place is really tiny and not many tables. We had great burger and Rueben. Service is friendly. Very popular spot for the locals and the tourists. The waitress was very friendly.

A quaint tiny restaurant with two older employees who just go with the flow. The food is cooked to order and is delicious and filling. If you want a good homestyle breakfast, check out the White House!

small, grill in main seating area plus a few tables outside. Epitome of burger/fries diner. Great breakfasts-the kind you'd expect. Very good prices. Not your epicurean dining just good plain meals. You might expect Flo, Mel and the gang there. (no grits-lol)

Wonderful food, and prepared right in front of us. We had the Special of the day, and we were surprised with the gourmet quality of the dish from this obviously "diner" like restaurant! Strawberry shortcake better than grandma's! Not much room, but outstanding food.

Everything was fresh and hot. The fries were perfectly crisp and the toppings on the northern fries (shaved ribeye, mushrooms, onions and gravy) were filling and flavorful. The chicken tenders were excellent also. Atmosphere in this little restaurant was cozy and welcoming
