A really varied menu with many unusual choices and lots of regular burgers, sandwiches, salads, and appetizers. My black and blue burger was thick and a bit dry, but tasty. My wife gave her fish (cod) and chips a B-. The other two couples seemed to like their fish, chicken, and salads. Service was good and the wait time for... More

New resident of Safety Harbor and still checking out all the different dining options of this beautiful, little Florida community. Whistle Stop is one of the more visible, located right at the RR tracks and Main Street. You can't miss it. For the past several weeks, we've made 2-3 attempts to stop here for a meal but couldn't find a... More

Server was eager and knowledgeable. Very busy when we visited but the food was well prepared and came out quickly. The fried green tomatoes needed more seasoning but the sauce was good.

Stopped in on a Wednesday night to find it was open mic night. Had a few cocktails and listened to some really great performers. We didn't eat, but the food coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled really good. Friendly and welcoming staff. Great place to kick back and relax.

We met some new friends here for dinner. Service was good food was very good prices were reasonable. I had local IPAA and my wife had the Château Sainte Marie Riesling. I had the ribeye steak sandwich which was delicious had sautéed onions and peppers on it.

I dined in with a client of mine for lunch on a Monday afternoon. Aside from not having all entrées available for lunch, due to a very busy weekend, the selection of food options and the quality of the food we received was really good. The staff was friendly and welcoming and very attentive. Casual, relaxed atmosphere in a nice... More

The food was excellent but our server was unfriendly and lacked menu knowledge. My daughter is a vegan so we had questions about ingredients - each required the waitress to go to the kitchen to check and she was obviously not happy about it. Ultimately we both had delicious meals but disappointed that we appeared to burden our waitress when... More

This is is a great place, a local outdoor/indoor Floridian hideaway that we return to several times throughout the year. Usually I can't complain. But during this visit, on a hot, muggy vacation afternoon just after the rain weekday, I was. Hardy anyone there, 3 tables and a few singles at the bar so no server/cook pressure. The Staff is...

Right on the main drag, this place has casual "come as your are" atmosphere. Seating outside (we didn't go inside) is open, and diverse - you can have a table in the corner, sit at the bar, or table for a family. It has a little "island" feel. Service is professional and knowledgeable about the menu. The menu has a... More
