I used to come here when it was "The Wharf." Probably better now. Sesame-crusted tuna was superb with a beautiful presentation.

My husband and I had lunch at The Fish Whistle yesterday (1/17/15). What a great find! He ordered the Cuban sandwich with a side of French fries; I had the fish taco. Both meals were fantastic. His fries were second only to those at Rue de Jean in Charleston, SC. Absolutely perfect! They were clearly fried using the Belgian method... More

We had a lovely evening at the Fish Whistle where we enjoyed an early dinner of Cioppino and roasted duck breast. The Cioppino was nicely prepared with tender scallops, shrimp done just right, and tender clams - delicious. My wife's roast duck breast on risotto was beautifully prepared. The service was friendly and very attentive. Overall - a great experience.

We stopped at the Fish Whistle for lunch on a cold December day. Our waitress was prompt and courteous, though a bit abrupt. I ordered the oyster stew and hoped for the best. I was delighted when my lunch arrived--simply the richest and best oyster stew I've ever eaten. My wife's lunch was equally good. The view of the marina... More

A very enjoyable dinner for 4 of us at the Fish Whistle...All of our meals were excellent. The service was quite friendly and prompt. We had a window seat and watched the sunset over the river. Highly recommended...

Have been here a few time and it's normally pretty good. I had ordered a Whistle Burger for lunch and it tasted just like a frozen patty. Not sure I'll go back.

We were looking around Rock Hall at some real estate. We decided to look for a place to eat dinner in Chestertown. My wife likes waterfront so we tried The Fish Whistle. It was a cold Sunday night most of the activity was in the bar which also looked very nice. We choose a table next to the windows over... More

Nice place on the water with lovely views of the Chester River. Large menu with a large selctin of beers. Standard seafood items and multiple specials. Oyster Stew was milk based with good flavor served in a very large bowl and filled with whole oysters. This was a meal in itself. We also ordered the jambalaya which had a large... More
