We were in town on for work and passed the Whitehouse at night when it was all lit up. The look of the restaurant caught my attention, then we saw reviews and I decided I needed to try a hamburger from there before we left. The hamburger was great...the atmosphere and staff went right along with that.

You just know when you drive by and see this little hole-in-the-wall that there's a lot high probability it is fantastic, and it doesn't disappoint! Great food and service. Menu has a nice variety but I asked waiter to surprise me and I got an olive burger. Great choice. Food is great but under-priced. Great value for the money so... More

We stopped here based on a blog I read on some "Must Stop" places to visit in Michigan. This place did not disappoint. The cute diner atmosphere along with the friendliness of the staff welcomed us as soon as we walked in. We literally sat 3 feet from the grill and got entertained watching the cook whip up all kinds... More

You have to go to this restaurant at least once in your life. The restaurant is literally one small room. The burgers here are fantastic and it is a really nice atmosphere. Lines can be long however (since seating is limited to eight small booths). Wonderful service, wonderful food, wonderful restaurant.

Whether you are looking for a filling breakfast, lunch, or dinner, Whitehouse in Clare, Mi should be on the top of your list. Breakfast's so big you can't leave hungry, lunch's and dinners, so huge. The onion rings are perfect, the burgers are big, the omelets are huge and the sausage gravy and biscuits are just like mom makes. We've... More

8 tables? Check. Grill in the same seating area? Check. The best Ruben in the state? Absolutely! The gals have been there a looong time. Watching the grill is mesmerizing. Clare is a quaint little town and Whitehouse a must.

I think the waitress said she worked there thirty three years. Food is fresh and delicious. You can watch the cook make your meal. Very unique spot been in business forever. Definitely something to taste and see in person.

We had been regulars at another restaurant a few miles south of Clare for many years. The food and service had declined to the point it was time for a change. We had read the reviews for the Whitehouse and decided to give it a try. The service was terrific, fast and efficient. The staff, both of them, were friendly... More

My BF and I were here on a Sunday for lunch. We got there right about noon and only had one group in front of us waiting for a seat. We got seated after about 10 minutes which was pretty good considering there are only about 8 tables. You could tell that this is a place that locals hang out... More
