Not an ordinary cut of beef

We want you to know that the meat you’ll select for your meal at The Whaling Station is not an ordinary cut of beef. In fact, it is the world’s finest. Our chef has come to believe the tastiest beef is a combination of: breeding; feeding; aging process; and preparation. He presents to you this ideal combination, right here at the world famous Whaling Station. This has been confirmed by our judges, over one million diners.

Our sources are under continuous scrutiny, as is each individually selected side of beef. Upon “making the cut,” these premium finds are then trucked to the restaurant where our chef prepares them. There’s no cooking method that can generate the depth of flavor of a Whaling Station aged piece of meat.In fact, we know of no where else will you find such dedication to the perfection of your meal.
