Contemporary American

We’re so excited to bring Whalers to Bay Shore and share our love of amazing food and great drinks with the community. Our menu is modern American cuisine, so you’ll find the classics that you’re used to but with our own little spin. In addition to our casual dining and nightlife, we also offer full catering services. With huge windows and views of the Great South Bay, Whalers will be the perfect location to host your next event!

We will do our best to accommodate your requests, but we cannot guarantee where you will be seated. Additionally, reservations are unavailable for dockside dining, as outdoor tables are first come first serve.

Whalers is modern and fresh with a nod to what it’s like growing up on the Great South Bay. Located right in the middle of the action down on Maple Ave, we are looking forward to getting customers who live locally, but also those who are heading over to Fire Island.

We look forward to serving you!

    I will say it was great food, but we were expecting a brunch by the water/deck, we were seated indoor, which was ok but we were looking forward for the deck experience which we did not get.

    The food was very good and the service fast. But the place was full and very loud. We could hardly hear each other. I would go back during a quieter time of day, maybe for lunch.

    The staff was great, Baer attentive & friendly. The food was also all delicious. However, the noise level was really loud. It was just two of us and we had to talk loudly to hear each other. May also have been because we were seated in what felt more like a walkway than an eating area. I think they're better off reducing the number of tables so patrons don't feel like they're eating in an aisle. The noise level and seating arrangements are the only reason we gave it only three stars.

    My husband and I came here last night for his birthday. It was our first time coming, so happy we did! We have nothing but great things to share about our experience. The service was amazing, our waiter was very professional and attentive 10/10!! The food was DELICIOUS and the ambience was perfect. In addition they helped make his birthday extra special which we both really appreciated. The whole staff was very warm and inviting, we will definitely be returning again.

    Love this restaurant! However, the noise level was so high that we couldn't have a conversation without yelling across the table. We went for Brunch at the 1:30 sitting. Our server was fabulous and offered to seat us downstairs, which was empty except for the bar and was very quiet. Was very grateful!

    Amazing view upstairs. Great decor. The food was very yummy, even for my little one, who loved the Katsu Chicken sandwich. The amount of lobster in the omelet was plentiful and worth the price. I will visit again.

    Had reservation but table not ready. Grabbed drinks at bar, when table was ready we were told that we could not transfer bar tab to table which was annoying and cost bartender the more generous tip we were about to leave. Closed out bar tab and tipped accordingly then went to our table by the bathroom and outside exit door…both were used continuously while we dined. Every time the exit door opened we were blasted with freezing cold air, it was very unpleasant. Server was friendly and attentive, food was good but not on the same level of excellence we experienced when this restaurant first opened. We used to dine here regularly but the last few visits have taken Whalers off our go to list.
