Station in Monterey: A Steak Lovers Tradition
World Steak House Traditions live on at the internationally
acclaimed Whaling Station, perched just above Steinbeck's Cannery
Row. Named Monterey County's #1 Steak House for over 40 years,
The Whaling Station takes the term "Steak House" seriously.
You can select your USDA Prime cut of aged beef from a silver
tray, your Prime, Prime Rib from the antique 1930's silver carving
trolley, and watch your Caesar Salad being tossed tableside.
An award-winning wine list and full spirits bar complement your
dining experience. Dinner and cocktails are served from 5pm
Braised Beef Entree
The energy of the Monterey Aquarium can be felt the minute you
step out of your car to enter the Whaling Station in Monterey.
This is an old line steak restaurant that not only offers the
best steak and beef dishes, but also offers a milieu of items
for people who prefer something other than steak.
My entree of red wine braised short rib with mashed potatoes,
caramelized onion and BBQ sauce was outstanding, as was the
oyster Rockefeller appetizer that preceded it. Their menu is
extensive and offers a tray of amazing steaks to choose from,
as well as a tray of divine desserts to enjoy as sweet endings.
The waiters are professionals and assist with wine selections
and recommendations for a perfect meal. The general manager
is charming and accommodating.
Alfredo Ortiz, General Manager
The BAR at The Whaling Station has its own menu and its own
local following, with drink specials and lively conversation,
served nightly. They make a wicked Cosmo, and their wine list
is simply outstanding. Parking in a private lot with valet service
