Limited menu. Food not as good as in the past. The cup of Maryland crab soup was like eating stew not having a cup of soup. way to thick. In the past the food was Super delicious.

A memorable evening - exceeded our expectations!
If you find yourself in York, PA or close you must go the White Rose!
We had a private room in the back of the restaurant for 24 people. Brittany, Naomi, Kelsey and Chef Sean were outstanding to work with.
We ordered appetizers, don't miss the calamari, to be on the tables when our guests arrived at 6 pm. Perfectly executed for our traveling guests.
The entrees and the cocktails were all amazing. We loved everything, start to finish!
Thank you Team White Rose! If we are anywhere in Pennsylvania we are coming to see you again! They even played our favorite music. They did not miss a thing. Everyone in the party raved - even the kids got their hamburgers and chicken fingers. Thank you Sean!

Sat in the dining room for the first time as opposed to the outside or bar seating area.. plenty of room, not cramped but it was very loud and cold. Still enjoyed my time, might just prefer the outside or high top seating next time.

TL,DR: Great value and good seats. Fishbowls are good, food is very filling, excellently prepared, and keeps well for leftovers. High regards to our server.

My boyfriend and I love crab on everything, so the menu hit our sweet spot. We were sat in the sunroom (??? idk what to call it), which provides great lighting and a good view of the street outside. It was also pleasantly quiet for a Friday evening, but we did go at 5:45pm and did not visit the bar. To drink, my boyfriend and I each had a fishbowl: he ordered the strawberry creamsicle, which was very good. I ordered the Bahama Mama, which my boyfriend complained should have had less pineapple, and we both agreed that it should have been stirred a bit. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed my drink... and I was pretty tipsy upon arrival at home. We split a crab pretzel, which was seasoned just right, but might have been a little much for an appetizer for two. My boyfriend ordered the crab mac n cheese (which I’m eager to share with him later today — yes, we had LOTS of leftovers), and I got the Eastern Shore Smashburger. I could only manage half the burger and I left my chips for later. We were both absolutely stuffed after our meals, to offer a glimpse of the portion size and great value of the food. Our server was attentive and friendly. She unfortunately agreed — with my boyfriend — that he resembled the guy from Home Improvement, so he left her a heavy tip. As I’m typing this, I just finished enjoying my leftovers, which had kept EXTREMELY well in the fridge — even the chips, which i put in there accidentally. Overall, we had a great experience here, and I’ll definitely be back to sample ALL of the fishbowls. ;)

Service was attentive, nice table with view of the O's game. Appetizers were good - Maryland Crab Vegetable Soup, side salad & a plain pretzel. My husband and I both ordered the Black & Bleu Ribeye. His was riddled with fat and pretty much inedible. Mine was raw so I sent it back. 2nd try was much better - cooked to medium rare and a better cut. Could do without the blackened spices though. Our son enjoyed his All American Smashburger but fries were too seasoned for his taste. Nice selection of wines - including a great Malbec that made up for the issues with the steaks. Waitress was very accommodating and pleasant.

It was great to return to White Rose. Menu is currently limited, but hopefully will expand soon. Street noise was a bit much but not the fault of the restaurant.

Same old restaurant. On the pricey side. Sandwiches for 3 and and a drink was $80.

We went back after a year to see how it was, no updates.

Overall experience was wonderful. So happy to see the White Rose open again. I ordered the Chicken Chesapeake. Crab cake on top was excellent. The chicken breast was dry and very hard to cut I probably would not order it again. I do miss the salmon with the huge ball of crab meat on top. That has been gone from the menu for a long time. That was the one item I would order every time we would eat there. We do miss the bigger menu. But, understand with circumstances. Our waitress was wonderful I wish I could remember her name.

We come to this Bar because of Cain. He always does such an amazing job crafting cocktails, remembering what we need. It’s to the point now, he knows our drinks as we walk in. Every establishment should have a “Cain”

I have an autistic son who loves White Rose’s breakfast. He was extremely disappointed with the taste of the food and didn’t eat anything except the bacon. It was disappointing since he’s been bugging me for a year to go there

We were excited to visit our favorite restaurant for brunch now that it reopened. We expected things to be a little different, but we were disappointed with our visit. We were seated on time, 10 AM, their opening time. We waited at least 5 minutes for our waiter. After viewing their Brunch Menu, we ordered the Maryland Crab dip and were promptly told they do not have that. Wow, they just opened for the day and we could not order what is on their menu. They ONLY had WHITE bread for their breakfast menu. They used to offer wheat bread. They changed from tri-color potatoes to shredded potatoes. We ordered hot tea ($2.95), keeping in mind they did not list any beverages or prices on their brunch menu. When we asked for a refill, we were told they only refill sodas, not hot tea. REALLY?! They used to offer a second cup of hot tea at no charge. I wonder if they refill coffee. It seems to me that maybe they are not prepared to be fully open at this point. All and all, the food was fine.
