Food is excellent! Great Fish and chips and if you need comfort food go with the turkey dinner. Service was a little slow and a bit friendlier, but they were so busy the night we were there, can 't really blame them.

Great little place that has been around for quite some time. I was in there a little while ago with my former boss so we had a half way point to meet. We ordered some apps.....which were excellent in lieu of a full dinner. I have been back since and again had a great meal.

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
