I met a friend there for lunch. I had the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger with coleslaw. It was cooked the way I ordered it and was delicious. Our waitress was friendly and attentive.

Our local go-to place. Great beer selection to go with the free popcorn. Love the smothered jumbo chicken breast which we often split because it is definitely jumbo. Burgers are great. Only complaint is that the place is so loud it can be difficult to have a conversation. Summer offers outdoor seating in the back which is a nice option.

I've been to Whistle Binkies on the Lake, but this was my first time here. The food was just as good. This time I ordered a piece of cheesecake to go. Later in the evening I remembered the cheesecake and figured I would try a bite or two. 2/3 of the slice later I managed to put it away. It... More

Between my in-laws and us, we go to WB weekly for Sunday brunch, lunch, dinner, drinks or late night. This is my son's favorite spot and has been since he was 2 years old. 98% of the time we receive excellent food, drink and service. We have sent one entree back due flavor and it was handled so professionally. We... More

This place is usually spot on with service and the menu that hasn't changed in over a decade. But the server was the worse I've seen in a while, it was pretty obvious that she doesn't want to be there, even watching here with the other 4 tables she had on a slow night. She didn't care to much about... More

Although the restaurant is located in a nice spot -- right at the intersection of North Broadway and East Circle Drive -- it is tucked away in a crowded strip mall area with limited parking. If you ignore the fact that the seating is crowded and limited and the atmosphere seems more like a small warehouse than an "old world... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. They were very busy but we had popcorn to munch on and the waitress was quick with bringing our drinks and taking our orders. Food was awesome (we both had a Reuben) and we were served in a timely manner. We were out in 30-35 minutes.

We went here for soccer team dinner. Very large group. I think all in all they did a great job serving us. However, my hamburger wasn't very good and they forgot the fixings and sauce it was supposed to come with. My daughters fish and chips were outstanding. We also had the friend mushrooms and they were very good. Everyone... More
