“Perfect for Lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

If you are considering taking one of the Trolley tours from the visitors center than The Whistlestop Cafe is a perfect place to grab lunch once you have completed your first tour. The food was excellent and the price very reasonable. It does get very busy around Noon so a eating a little early might be a good idea.

“Food was just ok. Food plates piled in the dining area. tha”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

There was no one there when we went in to order. Our order came out wrong and the server didn't offer to do anything about it. The food wasn't terrible but the dining area (the train) had food dishes pled up from hours before. Now I know why they were not busy.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We were a group of 20, previously booked, and though running late they were not prepared for us. The fried green tomatoes were delicious once they were served.

“Whistle Stop Cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This restaurant is difficult to find and kind of pricey for what you get. We went for breakfast and it was good but nothing special other than the atmosphere. It is attached to the museum so it was nice to take a stroll over to that afterwards.
