Love the fresh fish and great service. The atmosphere is good, and reasonably priced. Tucked away in Parkland The Whale is a great place for family dinner or date night.

Saw this place on the food network and tried it out on the way back up the coast. Oyster Rockefeller was delicious! Also ordered a platter that was a shell sampler also very good. If you like bloody Mary's don't miss it! Friendly staff, very clean and help in the parking lot to help you park! I will go back!

Brought my grandson to dinner as "Men's Night out". We both got the fish tacos. They were very good. We also have had the Mahi reuven on other occasions and that is good also. Service was also good.

On S.R. 7 well maintained with a good and friendly staff. Its a fish house with a large raw bar. The raw bar has a good selection, and the menu is also good. We enjoyed dinner.

Went there with my wife. Food was slightly below average. Got some mussels that smelled funky but the waiter was pleasant and took them back without hesitation. Portions were small and food was bland. For the price, expected much higher quality food as well as larger portions. Could have easily made our meals at home - nothing special about the... More

We take all feedback to heart, and it sounds like we let you down. We must say, though, that this was a bad night for us because we usually knock it out of the park when it comes to our food and service. We'd love to know the date and time of your visit to follow up with the team,... More
