We quit eating here a long time ago. The food was not very tasty & was high priced. Poor/slow service with a dirty dingy atmosphere.

The owner of Whaler's Catch was killed in November, 2014, in a freak accident. The restaurant has been closed since, and will not reopen. The building is for sale.

This place has closed down due to the owner's death. A big loss for our town. It was a great place to eat. The food was very good. Was a great place for special occasions.

This restaurant closed following the sudden death of its owner. It was a wonderful place, specializing in seafood with New Orleans influence. Big loss for this area.

Due to the untimely death of the owner, Whaler's Catch is closed. There has been a rumor that someone may buy it and reopen. The rumor has not been affirmed as fact.

Unfortunately Whaler's is no longer an option in Paducah. We hope that another fine restaurant will buy the property and begin a new tradition.

Amazing service, food and atmosphere for Cajun and soul food. Unfortunately this restaurant closed suddenly upon the death of it's owner. It was a sad situation and a great loss to the community.

We were told that the restaurant owner passed away and the restaurant is closed and not expected to reopen. It's a great location and charming atmosphere. Hope someone else is able to take over. We have eaten there in the past and were quite pleased.
