This place was busy! Over an hour wait for a table so we decided to sit at the bar (which was also crowded but we were able to squeeze in). We ordered the dolphin sandwich, it was beyond amazing.

Guy fieri is sooooo wrong!!! Over rated and greasy food! No management and very disorganized. Flanigans needs to step down and let the rib be what it use to be. Won't be going back

I am not sure if the show went to their head, or if there was a change in management. Bottom line with each and every person I spoke to was NOBODY was impressed whatsoever.... More

There were six of us and all but one of us wanted to try the sandwich featured on the tv show. It was the Fresh Dolphin sandwich. Although the sandwich is huge, the fish had a mushy texture and...

I dislike writing bad reviews but we were in Whales Rib with a few couples tonight (Friday 10/10). There was a female bartender who was extremely rude to all of us. She was very slow getting us drinks and when we ordered her attention could not stay focused and was visible rude. Making rude comments and faces at customers. The... More

The service was great, the restaurant was busy, food quick, and delicious!! And... what a value! I have heard this place was on Diners, Drive Ins and... More
