This is a nice place for cold beer and good bar food. They offer a daily lunch special, that is all you can eat.

We eat here often. Lots of seating, friendly staff, close parking. More expansive menu than most bar / grill type restaurants. Occasional small buffet, such as Mexican nights.

Food is always good and the service is quick at lunch. Prices are what you would expect. Plenty of indoor seating.

Always like their garlic parmesan wings and their pizza. Just an old hole in the wall bar with good food. Also like their fried tenderloin.

This establishment has not been updated in years, but we still go at least once a month. The service is great, the food is excellent and the prices are so very cheap. During dinner hours it feels like a restaurant that serves alcohol and not a tavern. Since we usually go on Friday it is always full of people dining.

I have since had the meatloaf sandwich twice and it was as meatloaf should be and not mushy. I recommend it now. Very good.

I LOVE that about Whit's End. ALWAYS good servers--polite and cheerful. They are one of the few places where you can always get sweet potato fries--YUM! They also have a great Cobb Salad. My hubby and I have split EVERY sandwich on the menu (most are too large for one of us to eat!), and they're ALL delicious! Their dinners... More

They have great buffet specials. When I'm in town I usually have lunch here. The variety is good and the prices are too. It isn't too often that the place is empty. Good home cooked food.
