My wife and I have been visiting The Whistle Stop for a few years. Normally at lunch but have had numerous dinners there as well. We always enjoyed the staff and food plus the pricing was all wonderful. In the last year the staff is still great but the menu, food, and costs have gone downhill. If this is a... More

Don't expect too much of quality from this place. It is just a local hang out with decent food and drinks. Decent amount of on tap beers and entertainment here and there.

Totally disappointed by our recent dining experience here. Went on a Sunday evening and waited waay too long for our food in a not crowded place with 3 cooks working! I believe there's a relatively new chef there, as evident of the menu and price changes, but no excuses for the horribly long wait for a burger and basic piece... More

We were humbled to read your review. We truly apologize for the long wait that you experienced Sunday evening. Food was coming out from the kitchen more slowly due to a couple of different things that night. While we did have 3 cooks in the kitchen, we were missing one of our key people on the line. We just launched... More

The staff allows you to enjoy your visit there without rushing you out. Their sweet potato fries are the best anywhere

We've eaten here several times since moving to the area and have been pleasantly surprised. The building and decor say "Local Hangout Bar" but the food choices lean more towards imaginative pub fare than your typical bar food. It can get crowded, but service is good and everyone's friendly there. Prices are okay to me but some items may seem... More
