Dinner for three

Came for the food , stayed for the live music. We arrived at around 9:00 pm and ordered wine and burgers, not expecting much. Man were we surprised! the Burgers were the best we ever ate, literally. Mother in law ordered the grilled shrimp tacos and was amazed at the flavor, We will return

We had just looked at a house north of downtown and drove through downtown Safety Harbor to get a feel for the community. We stopped at this place, as it looked laid back and friendly but the BIG surprise is the excellent food they served. The person in the kitchen is not a cook, he/she is a true chef. The... More

Came here thanks to our '2 can dine for $29' group one Friday evening. The service was very good considering our group numbered over 20 (out on the patio, which usually gets hit-or-miss service). I had the Black'nBlue burger and my husband a grouper entree and each of us a beer. The bill was, with tip, $37 but the portions... More

Took my two teenage grandsons to Whistle Stop while in Florida on a recent vacation. It was late afternoon, so we really weren't there for a meal, but teenage boys eat all the time, so made the stop. Had buffalo wings (big order of 10 wings) and soft drinks. Wings were spicy but not too hot, and the soft drinks... More

Looks like a cute neighborhood bar, but the food is really good. Had the veggie flatbread pizza with a balsamic drizzle, Brussels sprouts with a mustard glaze, buffalo cauliflower, and the house Cabernet. When the train goes by they spin a wheel and if you are sitting on the seat that the wheel lands on, you get a free drink!
