Really nice quaint restaurant in Spring Lake. Water's offered first, and then your wine is opened, then butter is brought out, then the menus, and then the bread. So plan to take your time eating here. The selection is minimal and prices are fairly high, i.e. $17 for lobster bisque soup. There are about 6 or so entrees which are... More

Very pretty restaurant in a hotel. Elegant atmosphere. Food was good but a bit pricey. Great wait staff.

Thanksgiving dinner with family always great. Thanksgiving dinner for 15 in a private room with no cooking and cleanup, priceless! Whispers was very accommodating to our needs, food was outstanding and the service, as overseen by Michael, was superb! Be forewarned, it's BYOB.

We went for an anniversary dinner. The reviews I read sounded perfect and we were willing to spend a bit more for a special occasion. Ambiance was good, service was good, food was very average and for the prices being charged, that is a very big negative. We ordered the chef's specialty for an appetizer - grilled shrimp. Both my...

The butter lettuce salad consisted of 2 pieces of butter lettuce, two cut up grape tomatoes, no dressing. The chicken was so dry, I could not even cut it..had to pull it apart with fork and knife. side vegetables were cold and uninteresting..no accompanying sauce which it very well needed. The service was a joke; 2 servers for over 50... More

The food and service are what you would expect from an upscale restaurant. A great place to celebrate a special occasion.

My wife and I went to Whispers again, this time with my in-laws and daughter. As before, the food was spectacular and the ambience perfect. An extra treat -- the staff remembered us even though it had been a year since our last visit. It's a BYOB, which is nice. Food portions are appropriate. Most of us had the Cape... More

My husband and I have been visiting Spring Lake for many years, and this was our first time at Whispers. We wish we had gone sooner! We both agree that it was one of our all time best dining experiences. The waitstaff is professional and efficient. The decor is beautiful. The food was tremendous. We can't wait to go back!

Dropped in for a late dessert and coffee. The four desserts we sampled were delicious. I adored the pecan tart!

I have been about 10 times to Whispers. We stay at the separately owned Hewitt Wellington Hotel and I can not find any good reason not to dine every night at Whispers. For some mysterious reason they do not have a liquor license. This makes it possible to have a superb dinner and bring your own wine which makes the... More
