“BRAVO, Whalen's!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

The best service and presentation, fab atmosphere, beautiful decor and the most delicious food that I have eaten in the east Texas and Shreveport, La. areas. I can't remember ever eating any food out that would compare with the taste of Whalen's. A friend and I ate lunch on July 27, 2012 and could find no complaint, only praise. The price was very affordable and the amount of food was just right. We can not wait to return for more of the same great dining. BRAVO!!!!!

“Excellent flavorful cuisine, service needs some improvement.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Our first visit to this "upscale" restaurant in this small Texas town saw one server for an entire restaurant on a semi-busy night, that was not sufficient coverage. Hopefully somebody may have called in or not showed up, the one poor girl just could not keep up. Otherwise the food was excellent, my compliments go to the chefs. The folks in Center are fortunate to have such a place to unwind and dine.

“Good food,bad service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

The food here is always good, but tonight the service was way below par. The excuse for this was that a golf tournament in town had "slammed" the staff. I only observed 1 table of " golfers". My steak was delivered long after my family's meals were delivered. When it was finally delivered, it was overcooked, and the wrong sides were delivered. Comp desserts were offered, but when ordered, after 20 minutes they still had not been delivered. We paid our tab and left, never to return.

“Best Lobster”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Great Steak & Lobster great presentation with an Orchid. Would definitely return for special occasion. I generally don't like Lobster & was going to give mine to my wife, guess what she did not get it.

“A fine dine in place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

This is a good place to have a fine dining for the evening. It is a little pricey for the quantity of food you get. But the food is prepared by a chef and the presentation of food is great.
