“Good food - great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Whether you sit on the long open air restaurant / bar which looks down on the charter boat moorings or prefer to remain inside when it rains, Wahoo is great for simple, hearty food at reasonable prices. Try the shrimp poo boy.

“Whale Harbor has Changed...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

This was a premier place to go for food and drink in Islamorada. You can sit at an outside bar and overlook the fishing boats in the harbor. While that remains the same, the food and drink have changed dramatically. It was a laid back bar with great drinks and light food...such as burgers, fish sandwiches, etc...The menu is completely different and the prices are quite high for the food. A "called" mixed drink is now $7 at the outside bar. We have been going there for years, but will not be there much anymore. Depends on what you are looking for, but this is not our place anymore.

“Nice place to hang out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is where you can go and eat a pretty decent meal (excellent if you like seafood) and want to see the action of the day's fishing catch. Everyday around 3-4 pm, the charter boats bring their catch. You can see mahi-mahi, kingfish, yellowtail, wahoo and some other not so easy to catch stuff. Real "keys" like place to be.

“Great selection of seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

This was our third time at Whale Harbor and we have not been disappointed yet. Selection of food is amazing and the raw bar is fantastic.

We'll definitely go here again on our next Keys trip!

“Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

After driving from Miami to Key West and spending some days there, we decided to stop on the way back (while driving to Key West I was surprised that the place was packed full). The place is amazing, nice, simple, fast and great staff. A beautiful spot to have a beer and fresh seafood on the way back (or from) Miami. A must!
