Fun Place!

Definitely a fun place to go if you enjoy outdoor dining and live music! They offer a menu that give you a taste of Florida! And don't forget the Fried Green Tomatoes!

Each time we are down in Safety Harbor we enjoy trying different restaurants. We had passed by the Whistle Stop because it was always busy and just looked like an outdoor bar. Boy, were we wrong! We finally stopped in once and have gone back several times since. There is a wide range of food choices and we have not... More

What I originally wanted to order (Sampler) was on the menu online but when I got there the lady told me they no longer had it. Fortunately enough for me, I ordered the steak sandwich. Wow-was it good!! It came with fries on the side, which were also pretty good. Great Quick Service Good Quality & Flavor Price wasn't too... More

If you want really good food, listen to music and to hang out with the locals this is the place. The food is definitely well above the average bar food and people are very friendly. Hang out and chat with anyone and everyone and enjoy tasty food and drinks made your way. Definitely a cool place to be. Go there... More

We have eaten here on several different occasions but always have the same comments. The service is lousy - doesn't matter if it is packed or half empty. The food is basic grub with a southern flair and this is what brings us back. If they have live music forget all ideas of chatting as it is too loud for... More

This open air restaurant on Main Street always has excellent food and a diverse draft beer menu. Normally the service is also good. However, on our most recent trip last night the server was slow and inattentive at first, and then completely non-existent once our dinners came. We had to ask other servers for refills and assistance. We were seated... More

We've been here a few times and always had a great meal and normally a $2.00 draft special. Outside dining only, but under cover. We will return...

I have been continually hearing great things about Whistle Stop and finally had my moment to pop in for brunch today! We were seated quickly and got our choice of location...outdoor but in the shade. Our server, I believe his name was Jarred, was pleasant and attentive. Coffee was strong and delicious..which makes me want to go back just for... More

Our first time eating at this restaurant. Yes, our table was located outside under a canopy but wasn't an issue. Our sever came to us quickly and delivered our food, but then never saw him again. We had to go track him down for seconds and to get our check paid. Oh well, the food was good.
