“Good food. Kitchen very slow.”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

We went to Whispers for Thanksgiving dinner this year. They were offering a prix fixe 4 course turkey and stuffing dinner. The food was very good but the kitchen was very slow and inconsistent. The entree took quite some time to come out and my dining partner had almost no stuffing and had to request that she receive some from the rarely present wait person. The dessert took FOREVER to arrive. The service was average at best. The food was very good. The restaurant is beautiful and is one of my favorite places to go for a special occasion. I will be rethinking my position however.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed December 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Perhaps we were expecting too much, but while the tables were well spaced in a quiet atmosphere, the food was not up to the level of the high prices.

“Not the greatest experience”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Tables are crowded in. Noisy. Service was good. BYO makes it more affordable. Food is good, not great. Not worth going out of your way.

“49th Anniversary”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

The chef deserves a medal for one of the best meals we ever had. It was worth the 3 hrs travel to stay and eat in Spring Lake.
