Located in downtown Old Worthington, The Whitney House serves made from scratch, refined yet rustic, American comfort food. We utilize fresh and local ingredients and constantly look for new and innovative ways to serve our community.

The Whitney House pays homage to the homes and kitchens in our past that welcomed all, treated everyone like family and offered drinks and food made with love.

We opened the Whitney House because we love our mothers. Our menu is based on the glory days of Sunday dinners when the entire family would pile into the dining room (and the living room if we ran out of chairs)to sit, catch up and enjoy a delicious meal together.

We want for you to feel at home when you stop by the Whitney House. We are looking forward to serving you!

--Ian F Brown, Proprietor

    The evening was so lovely, and the staff such a pleasure to be with, that I am surprised that The Whitney House did not sell out for later in the evening, from 7 pm forward, on New Year's Eve.

    I love this place! It had an amazing Nee Year’s eve buzz and it seemed everyone was having a great time! As always the food was exceptional. We shared crab cakes and the fried olive and goat cheese appetizer. Both so good and highly recommended. My fiancé had the shrimp and scallop risotto and I had the Saturday night special-no knife short ribs. The risotto has the best flavor and is so creamy and yummy and holy moly on the short ribs! So much flavor and melt in your mouth happiness! Thank you Whitney House for a great New Year’s and be!!

    It was good and our service was nice but not extraordinary. Short ribs were a bit tough and risotto tasted fishy. Drinks were underwhelming. Dessert cobbler was just fruit with cinnamon sugar crumbles. Husband said carrot cake was good.

    Everything was terrific. We were seated by the door at a tiny table. The server noticed that we were uncomfortable and seated us at a better table. Everything else was pitch perfect. The noise level was high but to be fair, it was the Saturday before Christmas and the mood was festive.

    The Whitney House is a charming corner restaurant with a bar in the back. The ambiance is warm and homey. The menu has been the same for years and is OK but doesn’t match the elevated experience of the restaurant environment. I think a little menu upgrade is in order.

    We had the most pleasant dining experience at The Whitney House. Even though it was a Friday night and the restaurant was full, Anthony, our server, was immediately at our table and continued to be throughout our drinks and dinner. We thought it would take much longer to get our meal because of the full restaurant, but it came in “normal” time. We had four diners and all deemed their respective dishes to be delicious. We love the ambiance in the bar area. It was a little noisy because of the packed crowd, but not noisy enough to ruin our dining experience.

    Overall, we had an average experience. You will never have a problem with getting your water filled and the food was good. The staff was a bit slow on our drink order and dining a bit cramped. Would love to see them come up with a few new items on the menu as well.
