This is is a great place, a local outdoor/indoor Floridian hideaway that we return to several times throughout the year. Usually I can't complain. But during this visit, on a hot, muggy vacation afternoon just after the rain weekday, I was. Hardy anyone there, 3 tables and a few singles at the bar so no server/cook pressure. The Staff is...

Right on the main drag, this place has casual "come as your are" atmosphere. Seating outside (we didn't go inside) is open, and diverse - you can have a table in the corner, sit at the bar, or table for a family. It has a little "island" feel. Service is professional and knowledgeable about the menu. The menu has a... More

Lynn and I had lunch at the Whistle Stop recently with our daughter and her husband. We had not been to the restaurant in quite some time. Our experience was terrific. I had an ahi tuna salad that was just incredible. Actually, I would have to say that it probably was the best ahi that I have ever had. Lynn... More

I love the Whistle Stop. The food isn't spectacular gourmet or anything. But it's good and the price is right. The atmosphere is perfect, especially on nights with live music.

It was our first time here and we LOVED it! We were greeted promptly and our server promptly took our drink order. We each had mushroom swiss burgers and shared fried pickles and fried green tomatoes. The burgers were cooked perfectly to our liking. The mushrooms were very fresh and piled on top! YUM! The portions were huge and the... More

Food is fresh and friendly southern hospitality. Fried green tomatoes are a very southern thing and a good appetizer to share.

What can I say about how impressed we were with this spot. We live in GA couple early 40's, and our last visits we never made it here. We stay in Dunedin but visit Safety Harbor/Phillipe park every time. It just never worked out but this place has been on my list for a long time! Boy was it worth... More

This restaurant has a very cool and relaxed atmosphere with really good food. The servers are always friendly and the bartenders are always on top of the drink orders. We eat there often and have always enjoyed it.
