We decided to eat here because of all the good reviews, but we were very disappointed. The food was overpriced and not that good. If you want a Tale of the Whale glass, it will cost you $10! It does not come with their overpriced drinks...
The only good thing was the view. It was so beautiful. We saw lots of birds and fish jumping.

There'll be a wait, but it'll be worth it! Food's amazing, beautiful view of the sound, fantastic service and great atmosphere. While we waited outside on the sound, there was a band playing that made the wait enjoyable, people don't seem to mind waiting because it's so relaxing!

Tale of the Whale is probably one of the best restaurants in the Outer Banks. The elegant, yet casual, atmosphere is inviting, and the service is excellent. This is an upscale restaurant, so the prices are a little high, but the food is amazing. This is a must for anyone's trip to the OBX.

We visited Tale of a Whale for my dad's birthday this summer and had a great time. This is an upscale restaurant, so be prepared to dress a little nicer and pay a little more for your meal, but it is definitely worth it! We enjoyed listening to music on the dock before our table was ready, while our kids danced to the music. It was a lot of fun. The service was exceptional and the food was very good. Highly recommend eating here!

Very good dining experience. Professional staff. Great food.

We arrived and were told we had 20 minutes before we could be seated. We ventured down to the dock and ordered cocktails and visited with our friends. They had live entertainment on the dock. It was most enjoyable sitting on the water. The ambience unsurpassable.

Out of all the places we dined in Nags Head, Tale of the Whale was the best.

This restaurant is definitely one of the best seafood restaurants in the Outer Banks. The lovely view of the Roanoke Sound is made even more inviting by the beautiful pier where live music plays each night. The front of the restaurant doesn't do the restaurant justice. But the views from inside and behind are definitely worth the long wait. Try the Crab Imperial for a taste that definitely will bring you back. The crabs, scallops, and shrimp are always fresh and most definitely delicious!

We have been eating here for the the 2 years for our "nice" meal out. The food is always excellent and the service good but the wait is long. They have a nice gazebo outside you can sit in and enjoy the sunset on the water while waiting to be seated but expect to wait for up to an hour or more.
