I was in Florida for four days, I actually went here twice because the food was so good. I have the steak and spinach flatbread, I brought my son back two days later so that he could try it as well. The waitresses were very very nice, and I love the outdoor seating. This place is one thing I would... More

My family comes down every year to visit my grandparents and the staff remembers us each time. I don't consider us especially memorable, but these are fabulous people. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food is awesome, and the beer is cold. I've been coming to Whistle Stop since I was a little girl--back when it was just a walk-up ice... More

We are locals and love dining at the Whistle Stop for their fresh dining options. We have 2 small children (1 and 4 years old) and they have children's options as well. We have not been there when there is entertainment, but would love to when we can get out without the kids. It is an outdoor/open patio environment so... More

You always wonder when the restaurant is 1/3 full and the hostess seats you at a dirty table. The table got cleaned and we ordered drinks and a salmon BLT. The drinks were delivered efficiently however the salmon BLT took 30 minutes. The good news was the sandwich was pretty good. However the onion rings were cold. Asked for hot... More

We ended up here late on a Third Friday evening. We were seated at the bar where we were waited on immediately. We ordered the appetizer platter and a salad which was huge and enough to share. There was a musician singing and the atmosphere was laid back but not obnoxious. The menu was much nicer than a typical bar... More

The food is very good and the service is very good. It can get a little loud with the music sometimes, but the food keeps us coming back.

I tried this place couple of times. Food is so so. Since it is an outdoor resturant. Smokers can sit right next to you. There is some loophole they are using. I will never go back.
