This is by far, my son's favorite place to go when in Deerfield. We're moving to Florida within the next few months, with one trip to check out some homes and we "have to go there" when we get off the plane. I think the food, the atmosphere, and the serivce is awesome. It's so much better than these bigger, overpriced, bar/restaurants in the area. It's worth the wait. Are they taking applications for a dishwasher? My son wants a job..LOL!!

I had heard so much from so many different people about this place that I couldn't wait to go here when I moved to Deerfield. Everyone said I had to go, and so one night I did. I showed up with a small group around 9pm, and I still had a 45 minute wait. The bar was kind of a cool area, but the whole place seemed completely cramped and overwhelmed by the number of people waiting by the bar and hanging out. Foot traffic is normally a good indicator of success, but when we finally sat down, I just didn't see what all of the fuss was about. The whale chips and the sauce were pretty decent. Everything else we ordered was pretty forgettable. The soup was ok, but certainly not as legendary as I had heard. I'm not saying it was a bad experience. The wait staff was friendly. I just wasn't that impressed by the food, and I still have no idea why people wait so long for fried seafood. I live in the area, and I've only returned once. Maybe my expectations were way to high, but I just don't get it.

Have been here twice in the last 6 months or so, but will definitely go more often. A great find. Be prepared to wait a little in the evenings, but well worth it. Decor can be described as divey, but in a good way. Just had the dolphin wrap and last time had a fillet of snapper. Yummy!!! So good. Delish. Try it!

Good place to eat and relax near the beach. Great service and price.

This is one of the few places that you can get fried Belly Clams. I love them and they are served just right. When I asked for them "not too crisp" that is how they came. I notice that they are not listed on the menu on this web site, I sure hope that they have not discontinued them.

Whale's Rib is a great place to eat and relax in a beach front atmosphere. I have never had a bad experience here. The food is great and the wait staff is very fast and efficient. It's a half block from the beach so you can go to the beach, walk to Whale's Rib and get something to eat and go back to the beach without having to move your car or carry a cumbersome cooler with a picnic lunch. The price is right too. My favorite is the Tuna fish Salad sandwich and the Whale fries. It's the best. UMMMM!
