I had a huge burger with onion rings.my wife had a steak flatbread dish. Both dishes were tasty but were delayed in being served. So they were not hot! Don't know if the waitress forgot our order! Prices are high but the food is good.

A local casual favorite with fantastic food. It also has a very friendly outdoor bar with the added bonus of pretty regular local live music options. And it is so Florida with mainly outdoor dining seating. Always my first choice for a meal I don't have to cook myself, the restaurant has really upped its game over the past several... More

Best spur of the moment decision! Atmosphere was welcoming with outdoor seating, areas for the pooches ( we didn't bring ours this day but glad to know we could), fans for the hot days. Kim was our great server. Attentive. Friendly. We had the fried green tomatoes with goat cheese and tomatoes for an appetizer. For our entree we had... More

The Whistle Stop is in our regular rotation of restaurants. We like the casual atmosphere and tasty interpretations of new and old favorites: fried dill pickles, fried green tomatoes, duck flatbread, grassfed beef, angus beef, pulled pork, great wrap combinations, and our FAVORITE Cobb Salad. The flavors in this salad tickle the taste buds - the blue cheese, bacon, spring... More

We to have lunch at the Whistler Stop and sat at the bar. It was a late lunch - around 2:30. We were ignored for at least 5 minutes which was irritating since there were only 2 other people at the bar.

I have been a resident of Safety Harbor for close to 10 years and this is a popular place to hang out with friends and family. The food quality and service is always consistent.
