A local couple recommended the beached whale and we're glad we listened.I had a fish sandwich,the fish was coated with corn flakes very tasty and well prepared my wife had a salmon dish that she said was very tasty and fresh. Don't forget to read about the history of the beached whale,quite interesting

Great service upstairs. Ordered mussels, flat bread and beer (99 cent). One of our favorite happy hours on the island.

The food was pretty good for what they had the day we went they were out of half the menu because I guess they were closing down for 2 weeks for cleaning (who closes down for 2 weeks for cleaning?) They didn't even have ranch dressing. And the bartender on the roof was probably the worst service I ever had. He was extremely rude to the point where you were so uncomfortable you had to leave. And the smell In the actual dining room was pretty bad almost made me walk right back out until I learned there was a place to eat outside to get away from the smell. Is this why they needed to close for cleaning? Makes you wonder

We sat up top in the warm FMB air during our time at the Beached Whale. Got a Cobb salad and let me just tell you.... it was large! So much meat, cheese and other toppings that it was hard to find the lettuce, but I truly didn't mind :) it was well priced. Service was good and overall, I would definitely go back!
