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. Finally, after having to flag down the bartender - don't know her name because she didn't introduce herself... More

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. The open-air laid back atmosphere is fun and relaxing and reminds me of Key West. I always like to bring my out-of-town guests here to give... More

Great little restaurant in a small downtown area. Have had many things at this restaurant but especially love their burgers. One of the best I've ever had! Nice diverse menu, all seating is outside and on weekends they have entertainment on the patio. Gotta go if you're anywhere near downtown safety harbor, fl.
