Our server (Keys) was amazing in providing suggestions and service. The food was outstanding—we didn’t wait long even with the holiday crowd. Even the manager stopped by to ensure we were happy. Everyone and everything was perfect—5-star! I would go back in a heartbeat.

Soggy, tasteless pasta. Rubbery octopus. Mashed potatoes with boursin that were overpowering - more boursin than potato. We had to ask for cutlery, ketchup for fries, sugar for coffee…it was a real disappointment.

My back was to the windows without a view at all. Food was good, everything arrived in a timely manner. cocktails were good. Would go back again and insist on better seating.

My husband loved the oysters. All our meals were delicious. I had salmon, others had mahi, halibut and swordfish. Everything was amazing. Ask for a table by the window, can't beat the view.

I kind of wish they had a fresh fish offering for lunch here as the menu is very sandwich heavy. That said it's a great location and the food and drink is always good.

We had the halibut special and the waiter hyped it up so I was excited. Got my meal and there was no sauce. Fish was dry. We also got the bell and evans chicken and the only thing with flavor was the peppers. Drinks were OK. Overpriced. Not worth it at all.

I ordered the special, a Kansas City strip steak and it was pretty bad. I expect better quality for what it costs to dine here. The ok’d fashioned I had was pretty good, and the scenery is nice also, but I doubt I’d be back.

I made the reservation for on open table and chose the restaurant based on availability and reviews. We were taken to the most perfect private booth by the window! Each of us agreed that our cocktails, appetizers and entrees were delicious! Our evening was perfect and we can’t say enough about our waiter Conner! He was so friendly, personable, and professional ! He even helped us make food choices based on our many questions! We can’t wait to come back to dine again at the Iron Whale. We hope we can request that Conner serve us again ☺️
