We were celebrating our daughter and her husband visiting us from Brazil. The seafood we ordered was outstanding. We especially enjoyed eating on the patio, and our waitress was excellent. She recalled us from a previous visit, and was extremely knowledgable about the menu, and was careful with my gluten free requests. We had a wonderful evening!

New Bedford
About the restaurant
Serves fresh, bold and innovative food that reflects the history of New Bedford and celebrates the New Bedford fishermen, their catch and their culture.

Menu focuses on local fishermen’s catch of the day, old school seafood favorites and a sprinkling of modern seafood interpretations. Menu ranges from raw bar, to warm and cold lobster rolls, baked cod, bacon wrapped scallops, bouillabaisse and grilled NY Strip.

Large bar and spectacular views of the artful New Bedford Fishing Fleet. Large covered outside deck overlooking the fishing boats and harbor. Centrally located beside the Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Ferries. Large parking lot.

And, of course, the hospitality is second to none. Service is what built the business.

We started with the grilled octopus; it was so delicious with a wonderful presentation. I had the old school roasted cod, it was perfectly prepared. My husband had the Tuna Poke bowl. He enjoyed it although it was a little small portion wise, but he said it was very good! We finished with cups of coffee that was brewed perfectly and served hot (most restaurants just don't serve great coffee in the evening and have it hot) but the Black Whale certainly knows how to end the evening well with a good cup of coffee.

We love going to Greyhound for a casual date night. The staff is always polite and attentive, and when Nick is around (manger I think) he always take a moment to check in with us. I really enjoy the months specials but sometimes go with regulars... like a smashburger with a mound of pickles :) The pretzel bites/stuffed pretzels never fail to give that dopamine rush. The monthly charity drink is an awesome idea as well. Its a place I'm happy to spend my money on and support.

The space is old and charming. The menu is varied and full of interesting choices. The wine list is extensive. We waited a little longer than preferred for our food. When it arrived it was well prepared, presented and full of flavor. Our waitress was gracious and a bit less attentive than would have been helpful. All in all, it was a pleasant dining experience.
