The Whaling Company, Williamsburg, Virginia
One of the current owners, Stephen York, opened The Whaling Company in the summer of 1980. The corporate name then was Continental Restaurant Systems owned by Ralston Purina. There has only been one Whaling Company ever built. Thru the late 1970’s to early 1990’s the corporation expanded to almost a hundred restaurants with names like Mountain Jacks and Hungry Hunter. Co-owner Vickie Barbour, a Hampton native, opened the Mountain Jacks in Hampton in 1979.
For over 20 years, this restaurant has kept customers coming back for more. The wide selection of seafood can be prepared just about any way you want it, and the suggestion of mixing items does not make the servers cranky. The fish and shellfish options are plentiful, and the meals come with satisfying side dishes. This is a great choice for anything from a romantic date to a family outing.
