We have eaten at the Whistle Stop Cafe many times over the years. We met some friends from TN there for lunch. Of course we had the Fried Green Tomatoes. DELICIOUS. Some of us had Fried Catfish Filets and I must say that it was the best catfish that I have had in years.

If you've seen the movie, "Green Fried Tomatoes", you have to eat here. The food is very good, reasonable in price and PLENTY to eat. Free refills for sweet tea and lemonade. The staff is very friendly and make themselves available. Try the green fried tomatoes. They are actually delicious! Place is casual, family friendly and open 11am-4pm. You won't... More

We took a road trip to Juliette Ga, stopped at Whistle Stop Cafe to eat and it was delicious, the Fried Green Tomatoes and Tomato upside down cake were worth the drive. Our waitress Susie was the best !!!!

First, I noticed that none of the servers were any more attentive than ours, so the markdown on scoring is based on observation of all servers, not just ours. However, ours, every time she did anything had to then go over & mess with her cell for 5-10 minutes before she could do anything else. She did this in plain... More

I visited the Whistle Stop Cafe on Feb. 2, 2017 with my husband. Being the huge Fried Green Tomatoes(the movie) fan that I am, I had to try the fried green tomatoes. The were absolutely delicious! I will definitely be visiting the cafe again in the future.

We absolutely stumbled onto this cafe and had so much fun here and in the town of Juliette. Hadn't watched the movie in years, but the movie was set in Alabama, so who knew. Lots of people apparently. We were told the wait for the Cafe can be two hours in the summer. No thank you; however, we loved the... More

We visited the Jarrell Plantation and then decided to go to the Whistle Stop Cafe for lunch. I had a veggie plate. It was SO GOOD! My hubby had a Fried Green Tomato burger. He ate the whole thing and said it was really good. My son had fried steak, garlic mashers, & mac n cheese. Very good as well.... More

Have eaten there a couple of times before in the past 20 years. It was great just after the movie came out. Then not so great the next time. This last time, my food was such that I probably won't go again Fried okra was not crunchy, very blah crust. My black eyed peas were good for the first couple... More

Finally got to go and so glad we did. Parking and getting out of car was like stepping into the movie. Even without the movie this would be a great spot to go back in time and chill. Café feels like going to lunch with my grandmother years ago. Service was good, friendly. When we ask several questions the server... More

I get excited about visiting cities where my favorite movies were filmed, and this is one of my favorites! Juliette Ga is in the middle of nowhere, but only about 15 miles from I-75, so it's easily accessible. The movie, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe was filmed here in 1991. The restaurant is set up much like... More
