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!

Enjoyed a delicious lunch on the deck. Our server was Maria, and she was awesome. Some of our favorites were the KOREAN DOUBLE FRIED CHICKEN WINGS in the garlic soy with sesame sauce, SWEET CHILI GLAZED CALAMARI, CHICKEN KATSU CLUB, and the mango crème brûlée. Looking forward to our next visit.
The food was passable, but not memorable. The service was solid. The noise upstairs was unreal loud. We nearly walked out. Couldn't converse at all.
My bday brunch was beautiful with a few of my closest friends
Very disappointing. I have eaten at Whaler's before and had a good experience, however, this was just bad all around. I understand having a rough night but too many things happened that made me never want to go there again. 1st, our reservation was at 8:00 pm. We got there at 7:55 to find the table not ready. Ok, thats is no big deal. So we went to the bar where we waited 15 minutes to just put in a drink order, another 10 minutes to get our 1st drink. Keep in mind, there were only 10 other people at the bar. When we were told our table was ready, we found that the table still had food all over the table. As I went to speak to the hostess, I was told they were very busy today and essentially made me feel as if I was unimportant. I go back to my table to find my guest id cleaning the table because the waitress thought using a small cocktail napkin would have been good enough to clean the food off the table that was left behind. Even after her "wiping" down the table, there was still lettuce and meat on the table. My guest starting cleaning the table himself. There were no , "we are sorry for the inconvenience" , or anything that made me feel as a guest that made we want to stay. We left, went across the street to the Lakehouse, and had a wonderful experience there. The way everything was handled was not professional and I refused to spend my money there.
It was our first time there. We really enjoyed it!
Jessie was a great server! She was friendly, attentive and she recommended some great food and drink options! We will definitely be back! Thanks Jessie!!
This was the first time we dined there. We've been to the Lake House just across the street which we like very much.
Whalers was as good with slightly lower prices. The ambience was casual. The inside of the restaurant looked more formal and very comfortable.
The menu tends more to seafood than at the Lake House.
We sat outside which, thanks to a pleasant evening worked out well. Service was excellent.
We were four and each had a different entry. We all thought the food was very good.
As it turns out we will be there again this coming Saturday.
Food was delicious but pricey. Loved the decor. Being next to Marina a plus.
We had a 2 pm reservation. It was a beautiful day so I understand the wait time for outdoor dining would be a bit longer than expected. The hostess was wonderful and told us it would be a 15-20 min wait. We decided to get a drink at bar. Hostess updated us at 230 pm and said the table we were waiting for had received their check but weren’t leaving. We gave it 10 more minutes at 240 the hostess seated us upstairs indoors which had pretty loud acoustics and it was difficult to hold a conversation. We waited at table another 10 minutes without service and the outdoor table opened up so I ran back downstairs and asked hostess if we could move she said absolutely snd would have it “bussed” immediately. We then moved ourselves out there and a waitress approached and asked if we just sat ourselves . I explained. It was then another 10 min before a waiter approached us. We ordered apps and meals at same time due to how long the process was. We waited at least 30 min before food came out and I had to ask for utensils and napkins bc they were not at table. The food was delicious.
Great experience! Just overwhelmed with the bees that took over the table
Very good food, good service. Nice atmosphere. Would return and try some of other offered dishes
Was at whalers last night. I requested outdoor seating and that we were celebrating a birthday. We were sat upstairs outdoors overlooking the parking lot. Service was extremely slow as their computers were down. Apps did not come out together. I ordered the rib eye…i had to request a steak knife to eat it. it arrived in a salty gravy that you could not even taste the steak. The quality of meat was horrible. I never turn away a plate yet I sent it back.
They did not charge me for the meal…however I expected A LOT more quality for the prices.
Will not return there.
Location is lovely by the marina on the bay
Service was a little slow - from bar and kitchen - but our server was attentive and apologetic
Food was very good. Enjoyed truffle fries w my lobster roll . Husband s cod fish dish was plentiful
The noise level was disturbing and we weren’t sitting in the busiest area upstairs
High ceilings I guess . Need some sound muffling panels
Hey guess I’m old but I can’t stand it when I have to raise my voice to be heard by my dining partner
Find this not just in Whalers but many restaurants , which I usually do not return to. And we dine out almost every night …
I took my wife for her birthday and we had a great time service was excellent Can’t wait to go back

First visit to Whalers and I was Impressed with the restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was Outstanding!!! Our server Noelle was super sweet, knowledgeable and quick. We will be back.
This continues to be a great place to gather for lunch with friends. We love the outdoor seating and the accommodating, friendly service. The food is very good; we only wish the menu was more extensive.
Had a lovely meal with a great view. Service was terrific and food was very goo.
Had a great time with the family. Drinks were on point. Appetizers were delicious had the garlic soy wings. Dinner was amazing. Had the salmon and the shrimp pasta. Finished it off with the apple wonton dessert
Best food, waiter and view ever
All was ok, we were there for wife's birthday which I included when I made the reservation and when I checked in. Never mentioned but the food and service were great.
Great food in beautiful outdoor deck on the water.
Loved the coconut crusted cod.
Very nice lunch and excellent service. Their New England Clam Chowder is on of the best that I have had.
Our server, Jessie T. was great, very attentive, friendly and helpful The food was amazing we will definitely be back!!!
Loved it !
Service was awesome
Had a 7:45 reservation for seated at 8:30 and bartender made two out of three drinks wrong most likely would never go back
Seafood risotto and salmon entrees were excellent. And get the mango creme brulee!
Overall it was a very good experience. We arrived on Monday night to a smiling hostess who took us outside to our table by the water. Greeted by another smiling busboy offering us water and then Noel our waitress came by to take care of us who was also extremely pleasant. Food was very good we both enjoyed our meal.
The only thing I think they should change are the chairs outside, they look and feel terrible…very uncomfortable
We look forward to coming back to a terrific night of service and food
We went for our daughter’s Birthday. Drinks were good, the ceviche app was very good. I had the seafood risotto, my wife and daughter had the scallops and my other daughter had the pasta. All the food was delicious. We didn’t stay for dessert because they didn’t allow us to bring our own birthday cake.
Great outdoor seating. I had the Crusted Cod and it was very flavorful!
Food was amazing and great dining experience
Really pretty outside deck area with bar. Inside was also very nice. Servers were very friendly.
Very nice place for dinner! Love the food and drinks. Service could have been better. Server was not attentive and very hard to get back to the table.
Food here was great, and the portions were generous. Good wine selection. Service was sometimes fast and sometimes slow. The upstairs is so nice. They say they only do 90 min seatings, which is not true. I think we were there longer. Seems like a silly policy for a party of 6 dropping $500. Upstairs was loud, not because of music but because of echo. Was hard to hear people at our table.
This is the first time that we visited Whalers and we were very impressed by everything. Especially our server (Rebecca) and the food. We will be coming back soon.
Attentive staff, garden room type ambiance, and delicious food.
Great service and friendly staff. The food and drinks were very good. No complaints! Would definitely go again!
Beautiful location in the water in Bayshore, convenient valet parking, excellent service, delicious food and very good drinks. We ordered a variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts and everyone loved it all. Not a morsel of food was left! Only thing missing was live music for a little more ambiance! Highly recommend!
