Our server was friendly, but I'm not sure if she had too many tables or what the problem was. She never brought us condiments (I asked at the bar) or extra plates. We saw a manager or supervisor freak out on a few of the servers. Every time she would talk to one of them they would walk away with... More

I went here because a local suggested it for fried green tomatoes. I ordered a balsamic chicken flatbread that was out of this world delicious! Prices were reasonable and a full bar was available. We sat outdoors and enjoyed a beautiful day. Can't wait to go back.

Friendly atmosphere and good food...better than what you'd expect. It is open air, so keep that in mind when dining. Good local music scene keeps it entertaining. Chances are you'll encounter me sitting at the bar Wednesday nights!

Sort of a casual beach bar atmosphere in Safety Harbor, with all outdoors seating under a series of fixed solid roofs. Good service and tasty casual food - like fresh grouper and marinated grilled chicken sandwiches. It is also a casual hang out in the evenings with live acoustic music.

While visiting the area, we went to wonderful Safety Harbor twice and ate here both times. The decor is fresh and funky. We were there at off times - late afternoon, so did not experience any problems with seating, waiting, slow food service or arguing owners other reviewers report. The crab cake and fried green tomatoes small plate was great.... More

My husband and I are big supporters of the local restaurants in Safety Harbor and eat out frequently. We have been to the Whistle Stop several times and each time, we leave disappointed and say it will be the last time. During our most recent visit, we had the typical 5-10 minute wait for a hostess to actually acknowledge that... More
