Had a lunch birthday lunch out with family. Lovely food. We all ask for a variation to the menu and they were most obliging. A little pricey for lunch, would have liked a lunch time special.

I've not been to Eat at Whalers for some time but a friend's birthday celebration meant a return. The million dollar views remain, the dining area is passable and the food is fine if a little overpriced. The service as I've come to expect is...More
