Great place for weekend breakfast with friends. We went with another couple and everyone was happy with their meals. Jordan was our bartender and he was awesome!

I had a pleasant experience. Bartender catered to my request well; I asked for something like Surly Furious but with less hops, and she gave me a very satisfactory beer. It's spacious. It's non-smoking. It's a bar I'd go to again if I had the time :)

Whitey's is a classic neighborhood bar in Northeast Minneapolis. It has a good, and constantly changing, list of craft beers on draft. The bartenders and waiters are friendly and efficient. What makes Whitey's stand out is the food. The appetizers are much better and more varied than the greasy, taste-alike appetizer plates in most bars. The problem is that the... More

The tots are great and the roast beef sandwich is mouth-watering. Slow roasting at it's finest. And our server Carly was amazing!

Whitey's is a neighborhood bar but their menu is surprising. There are a number of entrees as well as a monthly specials list. And these aren't the usual bar food items, they're pork chops, chicken kebabs and the like. Of course they have bar food too. You can get a nice cheeseburger with fries or tots for $8.95 and it's...

Came here because of the reviews and wanted to go someplace different. Husband had the walleye sandwich, which was good. I had the portabella sandwich, very bland. The waitress seemed annoyed to serve us and even though they were not busy we had to flag her down for service. Saw her at one time drinking shots at the bar. Will... More

I would highly recommend eating at Whitey's. All their juices are fresh squeezed. Their Greek Salad is fantastic, the chicken has never been over cooked and the greens are always fresh. The Rachel is great, the turkey burger also very good. The tater tots, well what can be wrong with that much potato surface area and a deep fryer. Glory... More

Love meeting friends at Whitey's before events or just to hang out and catch up. Great burger, turkey burger and Salad options. It's just a fun spot with conversation surroundings. Don't miss Whitey's

Love this place. Great place to hit on the way to a gopher game. Their roast beef sandwich is the best in town. I love the pastrami too. Big menu selection. Good craft beer selection too.
