Stopped in the other night for a drink and to take in the view. A bit of background first. I have been coming to this location for many years. I used to keep my boat on B Dock years ago and the bar was my favorite hangout. The ownership has changed hands many times over the years but Baleen has... More

I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant. This restaurant has some amazing water views, the best part about this place is, the waiter “Alex”. Don’t get me wrong, others are good, but “Alex” is GREAT. He provides you a service that makes you want to keep coming back. If you want to make this place even better, mimic... More

We stayed across the street and came here for breakfast on a Saturday. There wasn't anyone at the front but once we finally found someone and got seated, the service was attentive. They have a brunch menu on the weekends, so everything was pretty pricy but it was prepared well. Not really a good value for the price and the... More

Breakfast and Lunch was a pleasure overlooking the harbor with a cool summer breeze. All the staff were professional and on top of everything. Great place for business meeting or hang out with family and friends.

The outdoor patio offers sparkling view and cool breeze off the Marina. K9-friendly they were able to accommodate 3 K9 Heroes who came to receive their bulletproof vests donated by K9Armor.com. The food and service are outstanding.

I held a bridal shower for 20 at this hidden gem.The lower level is private, open air and has a stunning view of the marina. The staff went above & beyond to assist us in the preparation. Our assigned waitstaff, Michela, was outstanding. She ensured each guest was promptly served both the meal & the bottomless mimosa & Bloody Mary's.... More

We found Baleen completely by chance, as we were looking for a breakfast spot and drove down to the pier/harbor area. We came to a gate and asked the attendant for a good place. He suggested Baleen and we've been back twice on subsequent trips. The pulled pork Benedict is great, as are the pancakes. I've seen the fried fish... More

Sadly, I may have been able to offer a better review if I had been able to dine there, but I never got the chance. I stayed at the Portofino Hotel and was offered a dining credit for a free breakfast at Baleen Kitchen, but when I checked out of the hotel (pay attention to this fact) I went to... More
