Lots of fun in a great atmosphere. Freddy was very friendly. Service was great
Everything from Calamari and crab cake appetizers to the various steaks ordered (filet, petite filet, ribeye and cowboy ribeye) were excellent! Everything cooked to perfection with excellent service.
We went to celebrate a birthday. Steak on this birthday is a long-standing tradition and, being relatively new in town, we went here since it was the overwhelming fan favorite. Holy Smokes!! They did not disappoint.
The host staff were warm, kind, and gracious and made us feel welcomed. Our waiter “Spartacus”, was very attentive without being overly so. He seemed to anticipate exactly what we needed and when. The pace of the whole experience was relaxed and elegant.
The food...this is where the rubber meets the road and they nailed it. They bring out a tray to show you what each cut actually looks like. And they looked phenomenal. We ordered a Beef Wellington, a petite filet mignon, and a cowboy-cut ribeye. We went with the standard sides, garlic mashed potatoes with French onions and a bacony spinach. Steaks cooked to medium-rare. When those plates hit the table we all remarked something to the effect of, “Oh, wow!” That sentiment kept up through each and every bite. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and so tender the steak knife was mostly for show. And those “standard” sides were delicious. When prompted for dessert we opted for the cannelloni, tiramisu, and key lime pie. The portions were perfectly sized and delicious.
Now, a lot of folks are going balk when they see the prices. I did the first time I walked by when we first got to town several months ago. But, if you want a FANTASTIC steak (this coming from a Texan) and an elegant dining experience, you aren’t going to find that at Denny’s prices. You might not eat here every month, but if you have a special occasion or are itching for a FANTASTIC steak you need to try The Whaling Station.
I eat here a couple times a month at least and it’s always good- this time may have been a B team night because nothing was quite as excellent as usual, but still great overall. The egg rolls were a bit over cooked, the sauce with them wasn’t as sweet as usual, and the Cioppino was also over cooked. But all in all still my favorite steakhouse.
May be pricy but totally worth it! Meat melts in your mouth and great wine list. Lots of options.
Amazing steaks and incredible service. Would definitely recommend it to others!
Delicious food, fantastic service. Will always return, I recommend the Porterhouse for Two.
Steak cut request confused the waiter (a common request we make at all other steakhouses, and even made here last time). Filets were overcooked, attempted to be corrected (with a 25 min wait), and then 1 was overcooked again. No comp made, despite knowing it still wasn't right, and our guests had to eat without us, and then wait through it all. Will not return now, sadly.
Try to eat there whenever I come to town. I’m from Kansas City which is know for great steaks and the Whaling Station is fantastic.
The whole evening was wonderful. Food was amazing. Pavlova for dessert.
Great service and food. They knew it was our anniversary but did nothing special for us, which was a little disappointing.
Great food. Great service. We were expecting the best and we were not disappointed.
Best steak I can remember eating
Great service and excellent food. A perfect place for a birthday dinner!
Great Food and service
Always predictably great service and delicious meals.
The dinner experience overall was very nice and the food was good. I hope to visit again soon and try a ribeye dinner plate to review it at a higher standard than what my dinner partner had experienced. Overall I would recommend this fine steakhouse establishment.
Cannot name one thing that was not perfect.
Freddy and his crew have got it down to perfection.
My complements to the chef!
Pricey but worth it. The food is yummy, well prepared, steaks are wet aged for 3 weeks. Service is impeccable.
The steaks were great my wife’s fish was over cooked.
The Filet was cooked well but underseasoned. The Potatoes au gratin were inedible...mushy greasy mess. The cooked spinach was oily as well. Highlight of the meal with the wedge salad with Roquefort dressing. Delicious and large enough to share. Service staff adequate and friendly but we wouldn't go back because of disappointing food.
We ordered steak dishes not knowing the steaks already came with mashed potatoes and spinach. We ordered side dishes to have potatoes and spinach with our steaks. A good waiter probably would have advised us that our steaks came with potatoes and spinach. As a result, we had double the amount of potatoes and spinach and had no room for dessert. Had our waiter advised us properly of what comes with the steak, we would have had room to order dessert and not been so frustrated with the service. Our check was going to come out to approximately the same amount.
Food once again was amazing! Our server was very good. Service was a little slow but with a group of 14 it was to be expected. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
The Whaling Station is like stepping back in time to a classic steakhouse, yet fresh and contemporary. The bar offers a good variety of drinks, I personally recommend the Raspberry Lemon Drop! There is a good assortment of appetizers to choose from and the entrees cover every dining preference. I had the Beef Wellington and husband had the Prime Rib, after dinner they brought around the dessert tray to tempt us and again there was a delightful selection to select from; we both had the Key Lime Pie. Sitting at the window allowed us to people watch, enjoy each other’s company and our meals. The staff was very professional and attentive, everyone made sure that our experience was the best it could be. The prices are on the high side, so this will be reserved for indulgences on special occasions.
Great food and service! Highly recommended!
Food was outstanding, service was spectacular. Definitely worth the price of admission.
Both our steaks were cooked poorly. Mine was over cooked and my partners were undercooked
We have been here many times over the years and usually the Cowboy rib eye, which we split is far more marbled, and tastier than this visit. We both agreed that it had way too much salt and pepper on it and I don't like pepper on anything. We should have sent it back to start over again! One of our friends made the mistake of ordering a bowl of clam chowder which looked and tasted like warm milk; absolutely no clams and all potatoes, if there was anything in it besides the cream! He sent it back and even then, didn't eat much of it. The Caesar salad was decent fortunately.
For a place which was 3/4 empty, they should worry more about how their steak is, and whether the side dishes are hot enough (which they weren't), and not concern themselves so much with wanting us to order more drinks every half hour...
All in all, we were disappointed and so were our friends, especially sine we live here.
Disappointment in my wife's Petite steak. Hard to cut and not tender
Very good food served by a restaurant that isn't trying to be anything other than a steakhouse. We had the porterhouse for two which was served cooked to order, cut into pieces, and served with two complete servings of sides (tomatoes, mashed potatoes and spinach). A perfectly prepared birthday cannoli was served to my son. We opted for an additional adffogato and a delightfully bright meringue and fruit dessert named Pavlova. All in all, a terrific meal!
Nice place but expensive. Average food quality. Nice service.
The food was delicious and the staff were very attentive. Water glass never went dry and the martinis came w blue cheese stuffed olives. I couldn't have wished for better food/service on our trip.
celebrated by hubby's birthday, server acknowledged his birthday on arrival, waiter acknowledged as well. Food was delicious we had the prime rib and petite filet mignon. The clam chowder was sooo good. Hubby said the caesar salad was good. Bread was warm and delicious. They brought him a complimentary cannoli which i ate and he had his favorite chocolate cake. A very pleasant experience!! We will be back.
Great service. Great food.
Wonderful service and the best steak(s) EVER. The table side Caesar salad is delicious! Watching them make the dressing is a treat in itself. Oh! And the pavlova dessert is light and airy. The best way to end any meal.
My spouse and I went to Whaling Station Steakhouse for the first time a few days ago, for our anniversary. It was wonderful!..excellent food, atmosphere, and staff! Our waiter was great! Thanks for helping us have a special evening!
The pavlova was exquisite
Primarily based on price/value. This is higher-end priced steak focused establishment, however ambience and details don't quite meet your expectations for price point. Staff, front desk all friendly and provided good experience, just not the High-end experience expected from restaurant description and price-point. Ate at bar.
The ribeye was excellent and the prime rib was ok.
