Hope I have the right place. Is this the one that is now WHISTLE JUNCTION at the corner of Winter St. and maybe Swazey? Went there for three mornings in a row. When we find something we like, why stray? The breakfasts were very good -- size, flavor, and price. The staff was very helpful. At certain times during our... More

We were greeted with a smile and treated very well throughout our visit. The food was not very good, at all...but it really was off set by the service. We have children so we were more concerned with an appropriate environment and other relevant child accommodations than with the food quality. The salad bar is great.

We stopped to eat after the train ride. It was raining pretty hard and this was the closest place. We should have continued walking. The salad bar was old and dry and not much there. I did try most of it. Two soups. One horrible the other a cream something was ok. The pudding tasted like a tin can. Two... More

I would like to thank you for your review and we are always trying to improve service, food quality and cleanliness issues and apologize for your experience with us. I am puzzled by one comment you made and that was that your server apologized to you and said he was new. At that particular time we had no male servers,... More

We were vacationing in the Keystone area and ate here after riding the 1880's train. The menu had a wide variety of choices with great choices for the regular and kids menu. I would recommend if you are in the area. We had a group of 12.

If you're looking for good food at a fair price you stopped at the right place. The menu covers all choices including breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you're looking for something sweet and refreshing, enjoy a slice of pie. Service is steady and the atmosphere is simple. Expand your options and sit on the open air boardwalk and experience smell... More

We all had the buffalo burgers, they were very good and good sized. We had kind of compared prices as we walked thru town and they seemed to have them at the best price. We had good service and everything looked well kept and clean. Served quick. Would recommend and would go back!

The breakfast at Whistle Stop Cafe was great. They do buffet on Sundays which is great. Will come back here again and the prices are cheap.
