The view of the beach and street are great! Have a burger or a grouper sandwich with a cold beer or margarita to start your vacation. They have plenty of tv's for sports and live entertainment, island life with lots of people wathing.

Visited several times different evenings for a bite to eat. Dan was an excellent server and always kept the glasses full. Had the Burger was was excellent (fries not so much). Plenty of TV's for all the games and excellent views. Service great! We'll go back again and they serve a full menu till 2am (unlike many other places that stop at 10).

We dined right after a bad storm rolled thru. They were quick to setup our table for 8. Our food and drinks were served quickly. The nachos were good, as well as the tropical salad and burger. There were no complaints from anyone in our party. Try the key lime pie, it is homemade.

My husband and I went to florida last year and our favorite place to eat was The Beached Whale. The fish was the best we have ever eaten, and the staff was fantastic. We can't wait to go back again in March.

We have eaten here several times over the last three years and have enjoyed our meals each time. It's an almost on the beach bar and restaurant. There is and upstairs deck bar that we have never patronized. We opt for the air conditioning in the downstairs bar and restaurant.

I am still trying different items from the menu and have not disliked anything I have had yet. Their version of the Cuban sandwich is next on my list. The menu is not typical bar food and is different from most similar establishments (burgers and such are available). There is a good salad with cranberrys, candied walnuts and other odds and ends that we like. However, the last time the kitchen was a little heavy on the dressing so I will order it on the side next time. Window seats allow you to people watch while enjoying a beverage. Probably not a place for young children, but teens are common when we have been there.

The daily specials always sound good, but have not tried any. The beer is always cold. Service has always been good.
