Been here a few times, doing review a little late. each time got something different & pleased to say that I haven't a bad thing to say. food is seasoned perfectly not over done with salt - which is the first I look for. Service was timely and staff was friendly and down to earth. No fuss place to go.

As a young adult, I am up to current restaurant standards. I religiously watch Restaurant Impossible on TV, Chopped, etc. This restaurant is your typical local bar scene. I wouldn't really call this a restaurant. They have a small area with about 10 tables for sitting and a huge bar. I went here for the first time and was unimpressed.... More

Great little place, big servings, friendly atmosphere. The kind of place that you wish was a 5 minute walk or drive from where you live.

Good portion sizes, great meals, daily specials, super cocktails, convivial staff...after a loooong, hard day, my husband & I often turn to "The Whistle" to unwind and have a good meal! This 'no-frills' place has a ton of 'regulars' for a reason! Plan on a line to wait for space on the weekends! But it's worth it, I promise! We're... More

Havent been to the whistle stop in a few years. Stoped in for dinner while our kitchen was being torn apart by a contractor. it appears to be a very busy place. Parking lot was full when we drove in, but we were seated right away. First impression was it is a very loud place but clean and friendly. Waitress... More

I have been going to this place for a few years and have never been disappointed. I LOVE hamburgers - and they make a great one! Order it the way you like it, rare is an option, quality beef, hand-pressed...yum! The food is always fresh, the mixed drinks are generous and the staff makes you feel right at home. It... More

I've eaten here three or four times in the past year and I have never been disappointed in the quality of the food or the price. But the Whistle Stop is not a quiet little hideaway. Most of the floor space is devoted to a big rectangle bar with big-screen TVs, and it definitely has a barroom atmosphere. Nothing wrong... More
