We went at about 1:30pm and it wasn't very busy. Glad we went for lunch and not supper as Wednesdays is ladies night (great deals) but I am sure it would be very crowded. It was clean which is always a plus when going to a new place. Service was great and teh food was excellent. Great portions. The prices were awesome. I had a BBQ chicken club with side salad for $11.99. Would go back the next time I am in DC

I searched restaurant.com for places to eat in the neighborhood we were staying in and this place came up. We walked form our hotel and were a little leery when we saw the “Gentlemen’s Club” next door. It was a Sunday brunch and they had a nice menu just for that but we were in the mood for sandwiches. My fiancé had a burger and I had a Reuben. Both were generous servings that lasted us well into the evening. I wouldn’t search this place out if it hadn’t been for my discount but I am glad we went.

If you enjoy busy place - you will enjoy it. Cool crowd.

Don't be deterred by the strip club next door, because Sign of the Whale is a great lunch spot if you don't want fast food but don't want a fancy meal. The burgers and sandwiches, especially the crab cake sandwich, are consistently good, and the service is quick and friendly. In the evenings, it becomes a raucous party spot from happy hour onward, so I'd skip dinner here unless you're looking for a party.
