We ordered the grouper fish sandwich and sweet potato fries. Awesome. Sandwich was huge. Cooked perfect. Fries were crunchy and soft. Full of flavor. Staff was great.

Went there for lunch today. My wife had the Fish Tacos (grilled) and I had the Lobster Roll. The Fish Tacos and French Fries, according to my wife, were very good. So I give them 5 stars for that.

Came here for supper with my wife and was NOT disappointed. Rachel was our waitress and did a phenomenal job. Best service we have had since being in FMB! And the food was equally as great!

Tiffany H was a great server. We visited a bit because it was not busy. My hubby had grilled grouper and I had grouper tacos. It was a great meal in a great atmosphere. We will definitely come back next year!

Was our third visit to this place. On this trip we went on Valentine's Day . Was by far our best dinner of the trip. The calamari was awesome and the steamed oysters. The Yucatán shrimp tacos and the flatbreads were amazing

Found this place on accident while staying at FMB. I am so glad we did! Sat up on the 2nd level deck looking out at the gulf and all the busyness on the strip/sidewalks.

Almost always busy in season and a great place to watch the sunset. It's just across the street from the Gulf but has a nice view. If you're a fan of chicken strips and a large meal, this is the place to go!

I am here on holiday and have been to the Beached Whale now many times with friends for dinner. The food is delicious, the wait staff is friendly and very attentive. One of the waitresses, MIchelle, waited on us this evening. She is really wonderful!

Sat on the top outdoor level with a view of the Gulf. Food was very good. The triple tail taco is the best. Wait staff and hostess make you feel so welcome. Off street parking so it is easy to have delicious meals in a casual setting.

Thank William157
