The name of business comes from the location in Whitehouse. The family has had a long history of naming their establishments after the town they were located in.
Our business is all about People. From the Guests we serve to the staff that takes care of them, our business is a delicate balance of supporting all people touched by our efforts. The support from the community has always been amazing -especially the past few months!
What would someone be surprised to learn about your business?
We have been here for 25 years and it's currently a 2nd generation business- Something that does not have a very good success rate. Funny true story: A guest one night was so loud and obnoxious about the Presidential Cut Prime Rib that another guest went table to table asking what they were eating causing such a scene that when that guest ordered I had the server let me know what he ordered and I put my shoe on a plate and sent it out to him- the dining room erupted in laughter.
Secrets to your success:
Tony was taught by his father how to run the business from the ground up- he did all roles in the business. His older brother was a top chef in the area. Between the 2 they could mentor Tony to be the best restaurant/bar operator possible.
He is driven to be the succeed and constantly wants to improve.. this philosophy extends to his staff. He truly loves the business and being an entrepreneur.
It’s like throwing a party every day and constantly having to be the perfect host. My staff are excellent hosts all day every day.
How has the Chamber helped you?
