It is great to sit up high and look out over the street to see the Gulf. It was quite a busy place on a Sunday night before Labor Day but we got seated within 10 minutes. The calamari appetizer was perfectly cooked and delicious....More

Great spot on the rooftop with bar and comfortable booths overlooking Fort Myer Streets across from the beach. Food is always wonderful: grouper sand which a favorite and drinks 🍹 always great too!

We arrived late on Saturday night and opted for takeout while having a drink. Everything was perfectly prepared and delicious and at 1045 pm. Best mussels ever and the beach bread was also fantastic. Great place can't wait to go back.

Really enjoyed visiting the Beached Whale! Engaging servers with fantastic food! The blackened chicken Alfredo was dyn-o-mite! So much flavor from the typical white alfredo sauce.
