“Loud, rough crowd”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

This place was packed and it was difficult to get drinks. The crowd was pretty rowdy with a couple fights. Probably wouldn't recommend.

Hi, when were you at the Squid and Whale? Our featured entertainment last weekend (the date of your review) was world class - Ulrich and Tribe, originally from Austria,, and we had a very mellow, patient crowd. I am a bit perplexed; the only people who were upset were the ones that were underage and were asked to leave. I would appreciate a response so that I can correct any problems I am not aware of. Thank you.

“bad, bad, bad, bad food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Let em start by saying the people that work here are very sweet but the food is inedible. Literally inedible. There were some things that we just had to give up on trying to chew. Hopefully they'll get a new cook and I think they will do much better. Very nice peopl, extremely bad food.

Hi, I have written to you twice to ask when you had this experience with our restaurant and have not received any response from you. I have talked with all of our wait staff and anyone associated with the kitchen (servers, bus people. dish washers, etc.) and virtually no one (-0-) can recall an incident you describe. As I said in the personal responses, please let me know when you were at the pub, what you ordered, etc., and I would definitely remedy the situation. Thank you.

“Always a great time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

I love the Squid and Whale since it is smoke free and they always have great live music on the weekends! The bar staff is always attentive, friendly, and just good people! Much friendlier than other bars in town.
