Where We Were Eating: The Whale's Rib


After 30 years and an appearance on Diners Drive-in's and Dives in 2010, the Whale's Rib has proven to be a landmark in Deerfield Beach. Yesterday's commenters correctly guessed the dive.



Known for their dolphin sandwich and whale fries, the Whale's Rib also serves up homemade lobster bisque and their signature whale sauce: a honey mustard "liquid crack." Named by some locals who frequent the restaurant.

Only within walking distance from the beach, the Whale's Rib continues to bring back customers and wow tourists, what they've been doing for the last three decades.
