Great lunch spot, didn't try dinner. Water views and lots of light. Upstairs/downstairs options so you can be wharfside.

We went to the Baleen for drinks on a Saturday evening. Drinks were delicious, atmosphere was lovely and relaxing and the live music was enternaining. We didn't have anything to eat but I've heard the food is great and the Sunday brunch is a must. The atmosphere is cozy and considering we were there in December, the fireplace was a... More

Happened to dine here on Monday, which is the day they offer the Chef's Prefix menu. Three courses, each with three options, for $35. Another $12 for three wine pairings to match. The clam chowder was excellent and the pairing was a perfect match. The steak and the salmon were also excellent, perfectly done and accompanied. The wine pairing with... More

Great prices on drinks and delicious appetizers in bar from 4 to 7! The ambiance of the decor is wonderful and views of the Harbor, especially at sunset, are spectacular.

Have tell you the live music is great. Love the free valet. Love that Baleen is right on the water. Sucker for the fireplaces & outdoor fire pit. Beautiful decor & yummy cocktails... Have been going for years here. Amazing pork chops dinner & great brunch as well.

Was looking for seafood on a Sunday afternoon and this place was recommended by a local. arrived to find the dinner menu didn't start until 2:30pm and we had to chose from the Sunday brunch menu. The only seafood was fish and chips so we went ahead with that. It was ok rather bland. Service was sketchy. Left wishing we... More

Went mid-week and buffet wasn't exciting. Omelettes were good but for two we spent near $50 but it didn't feel like a high end breakfast. I would have rather gone to Cheesecake Factory for Brunch or Lunch.

More of a 3.5. The food was good the service was slow. Dessert was nice. Wine list was so so. Has a great view. The fish and chips weren't to bad at all.
