This is a good place to stop for lunch or dinner. The fish are always fresh and made to order. It is frequented both by locals and tourists. The views are interesting because they are located on the water. The staff is attentive and requests are followed up immediately. The prices are moderate and you can expect a pleasant experience.

We saw lots of cars in the parking lot, so we stopped. Loved the view from our railing table on the 2nd floor...looking over the harbor to the ocean. The food and service were excellent. A few days later we talked about going @ 20 miles from our lodging to eat another meal there...a great memory of the Florida Keys.

Had always wanted to try this place from how nice it looks from the road. The actual experience was not that great. The tables close together and atmosphere noisy. The food was good but expensive.

Jeff and Skyler were awesome! We rented jet skis from them and they were great explaining the rules of the water..they have great prices for hourly rentals. Will definitely do it again!

Nice server and great view. Fried shrimp really good. A little pricy for portions but not bad. Can't beat the views.

Food was just okay. Probably my least favorite place during our visit to the Florida Keys. Don't think I would go back.

Wonderful food, we stopped here both on the way to and from Key west, as we have done many times in the past. They have both an indoor and outdoor area (outdoor is undercover) Views out to sea and you can watch the boats come in and out.

Couldn't find listing for the marina, which is adjacent to the Inn. Find Capt Skip Bradeen to charter his 50' deep sea fishing boat for the day. We had a great time. Bring your own food/drink... They take care of the rest. Guys were great... Beautiful day out. Tried for sailfish... Got 2 bites and spent a blissful day out... More

We were the first customers as soon as the place opened on a Friday morning and I requested the fish ceviche, which was glorious. Very fresh, tasty and abundant. The price was very low for what I got.

I look forward to eating at the Whale Harbor each year on our trip to the Keys. This year - I was looking up the hours on the internet and it said that it was closed due to smoke damage. When we drove by, it was completely gone. That was a lot of smoke damage.
