We came down for a great night of seafood dining. The entrées were great and the wine list was pretty extensive if a little limited in terms of variety. Mains choices were good and we went with the signature seafood medley for two. This was bang on although the upper tier of prawns lacked flavour. The scallops, oysters, soft shell... More

Great atmosphere, little rowdy, but good selection of seafood. We ordered a little too much, so we got a taste of the diversity in the cooking and it was all good. Great dinner spot!

Whole baked ruby snapper for two was our favourite, but also very very good was the seafood marinara (which contained generous fresh portions of several sea critters) and so... More

Visited here whilst staying in Exmouth. The food was delicious and our waiter was particularly friendly. We ordered the jalapeño poppers after reading so many rave reviews on TripAdvisor but beware they are pretty hot (I definitely underestimated this). There are plenty of other great looking entrees to choose from. This place was also recommend by various locals so must... More

Some of the best food I had in exmouth was here, friendly waiters that were attentive and prices were reasonable. Was busy the times I went there so best to book ahead.

Liz Minniear and executive chef Paul Minniear have owned and operated Whalers Restaurant since 2007. In early 2014 they moved the restaurant from Kennedy st to the Exmouth Escape Resort where they can now offer a more comfortable, modern and lush setting for their diners' pleasure. They continue to pride themselves on fresh, honest flavours and source the finest local seafood, steaks and produce available.

Live music is a regular feature at the restaurant with solo or duo acoustic acts playing on the deck while you enjoy your meal.
