The Iron Whale is quite a departure from the previous ventures of the McLoone restaurant group. It will feature a rustic yet still contemporary design in the spirit of seafarers with prominent reclaimed wood, ropes, and gas lanterns.

The menu by executive chef Michael Dolan will feature inventive takes on seafood including a “Taco Bar,” hence the title “Whale”. However, it also will include a wide selection of meat presentations, or “Iron”.With its Asbury Boardwalk location, outdoor ocean view dining will be a strong feature of the Iron Whale. Indoors will also house an open kitchen, a fireplace, along with a private meeting or party room.

The Iron Whale promises to be another exciting addition to the already resurgent Asbury Park scene and will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner year-round.
