We visit about twice a month, while the food is good it can be tough to get a table without a wait! The wait staff is always friendly, engaging and attentive without rushing you. The food is good with a pretty varied menu. The bar area is loud when they're busy, but there is a small area out back w/... More

Service is good and staff is friendly the food is what you would expect from a town restaurant/bar bar room. A very satisfying experience and playing keno is a decent way to pass the time as you wait on your food!

I hadn't been to this pub in probably 20 years, but stopped by while in the neighborhood on a Wednesday night about 6:30. We were seated immediately in the bar area. They have a good selection of draft beers, and our waitress was familiar with them - enough to help me make a choice (on the dark side, no citrus.)... More

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
