We live very close but hadn't been here in years for no particular reason. We decided to give it a try on a Sunday night around 6:30. I drive by this place all the time and it's ALWAYS crowded so I was looking forward to dinner here. We waited by the door for a few minutes before someone came to... More

I love going to the Whistle Stop because everybody is very friendly. And I like the pub atmosphere and the patrons there are very nice too. Love that they have Keno also and they have the best hamburger in the world I think. They also have a lot more on the menu that I like and their prices are good... More

I have to write this review Yogi Berra style. While we try to be a frequent visitors here it has been so busy as of late, we simply can't get in and when we do decide to wait, the service even at the bar has been inconsistent. My Yogi-ism for my recent attempts to go here is... that nobody goes... More

We have been to The Whistle Stop many times over the years. The food was always good and the waitstaff was quick and friendly. However, our last visit was unpleasant to say the least. The portion size of the meals seemed smaller and wasn't as tasty as usual. Our waitress took forever to greet us and offer a drink. (table... More

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
