Not only great beer lots of cool games to play. Nice atmosphere to hang out with friends and have a good time. I really appreciated how they did not have overly loud music so people could socialize. Well done!

Can always count on Whalers for great tasting beer, a friendly crowd of people, and plenty of place to sit or play games. We also got to enjoy some great live music Saturday night.
