This was a nice place. Really good service. Loved the clam chowder. Really rich and creamy. Sweet potato fries were a little under cooked. My husband had fish and chips. He said they were ok. Soup was definitely the highlight.

Was in about a week ago and a young man with an exotic name helped my family and I out, he was fast, he knew the answers to all of our questions, he also sold us on their daily special. Awesome kid, he was around 21 maybe, he could have been black and Spanish, wish I could remember his name!

Despite the construction nearby, we enjoyed the views while sitting on the downstairs patio of the Beached Whale. The sunset painted pastel colors in the sky as it set on the water just beyond the buildings across the street. We enjoyed reading the menu names and a few of the special whale drinks on the menu.

Great food and happy hour. Service always with a smile. You gotta try the wings and mussels. Fun place to watch a game on the deck.
