“Loved the food!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

This was one of the best meals we had on our trip to Colorado. We happened to be there on a night when they offered a special - appetizer, dinner and dessert for $20. My husband and I ordered crab cake and ahi tuna for our appetizers - both were really good. We each had lamb chops for dinner and they were excellent - cooked and seasoned just perfectly. Our dessert was a carmel covered warm brownie with ice cream. I am still thinking about it. The atmosphere is REALLY casual, very local feeling. There is somewhat of a view from the bar area - but not a gorgeous interior - just really good food.

“Had a wonderful experience on a recent Moday night”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We saw some mixed reviews, but had eastern here 10 years ago. Decided to try it and we're not disappointed. My wife had the coconut shrimp and I had the Mahi Mahi and chips. We split a salad and we had more than enough. The value was great. Prompt service. Decided to eat inside since it could possibly rain, although you can sit outside. We had a very nice experience and easy walk from the Marriott.

“Service was great!”

We went to the Whale's Tail to have a few Happy Hour cocktails and weren't disappointed. They were very dog friendly and the service was great. Happily recommend.

“Great happy hour options”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We came in here because of the sign advertising crab legs, but the price was outrageous ($47/pound). Instead, we started with the happy-hour special of 10-cent shrimp and 50-cent wings. After that, we enjoyed trout and the grilled mahi sandwich--both very good. Our server, Charlie, was very personable and helped make our experience here a good one.

“Very nice overall!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We were looking for dinner reservations Saturday afternoon for Saturday night and many places were already booked. We finally tried this resturant and got the reservations we wanted. I was immediately concerned that there was something wrong with the place as it didn't seem at all busy. We were given a excellent table and had a personable server. The service and food were great (salmon, mahi fish/chips, fish taco) and reasonable in price for the area.
