As our motto states, catfish is indeed a special treat at Whitey's, available the only way it should be, fresh, wild river cats -- all you can eat for $14.95! For the timid or not so hungry, you can order it a la carte by the half-pound or as a basket with slaw, fries, and hushpuppies ($6.95). Additional fish dinners available include "catch-of-the-day", mahi-mahi, and salmon ... available grilled, blackened, broiled, or fried for $14.95. I personally recommend the blackened snapper if you're not in the mood for catfish.
Whitey's also serves specialty dishes such as Stuffed Flounder, mouth-watering Pasta dishes, tender steaks and chicken. Children also have a wide variety to choose from our kids menu. Remember, with every purchase of an $8.95 entree ... KIDS EAT FREE, from the kids menu, every Wednesday!!

The creek is named for the water coloration, caused by the presence of tannin from decaying leaves and vegetation. It is considered to be one of the cleanest creeks in the state. In shallow areas, the creek water is stained red, and in deeper waters, the water appears black. Sections of the creek have eroded surrounding terrain and have formed deep ravines. The lower creek basin is affected by the tidal influences of the St. Johns River. Be sure to bring your camera.
This is a great ride if you would like to spend the day on the water!
Doctors Lake is a 3,500-acre tidal freshwater embayment located on the west side of the St. Johns River in Clay County, Florida, just 37 miles from the river's confluence with the Atlantic Ocean. Doctors Lake is connected to the St. Johns River by a narrow 1/4-mile wide tidal inlet known as Doctors Inlet. The lake is an elongated estuary about five miles long and one mile wide. Due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, the water of Doctors Lake is brackish.
Most of the 13-mile shoreline of Doctors Lake is surrounded by residential development with docks and bulkheads. The community of Orange Park is located on the north side of the lake, and Lakeside is situated on the western shore. The only undeveloped areas around Doctors Lake are the wetlands of Swimming Pen Creek on the lake's southwestern end.
