This is definitely a Barfield, but I used to come here for food. The burgers are great, and that Miss fear is good. The staff here is nice, and they're very accommodating. I recommend getting a burger and a soda.

Dropped in for a lunch wIth a beer. Excellent Reuben sandwich; marbled rye perfectly toasted, Russian dressing not overly applied, and Swiss cheese nice and gooey. Bainbridge Island Amber the perfect accompaniment. Get Robin's section for attentive service.

Had breakfast / lunch here today with kids and grandkids. It was ok. Not wonderful, may go back but I would say it's not a destination place

Good food and friendly efficient service on a Sunday morning for breakfast. I didn't realize they served breakfast. I got the regular breakfast and subbed a pancake for the toast and my friend the homemade corn beef hash. Both were good quality. I would choose this place over either Sharies or IHOP any day.

I agree, Awesome Club sandwich. I've had sandwiches and they too were excellent. My favorite is the Whistle Stop offers two scratch made soups daily. Yum! Staff, as always, very friendly and attentive!

We had dinner here on 1/17/17. We thought the service was very friendly and attentive but the food was mediocre at best. The burger was a decent one but nothing outstanding about it. I had the beef stroganoff which was one of the specials. The sauce was delicious but the meat so tough I couldn't eat it at all (when... More

Great food too, but I come for the beer selection - always broad-based and we'll curated. Don't miss the specials - fresh is best! The sandwich combinations are winners - pick a meat or style that interests you and you will enjoy what they've put together!

Old World charm may be found in downtown Renton, Washington at the Whistle Stop Ale House. For over one hundred years people have come to this neighborhood next to the railroad tracks to enjoy a pint among friends. Adding to the rustic charm is the cherry wood back bar which traveled to the Alaskan Gold Rush before finding a home in Renton.

Today's brand new Whistle Stop has seventeen rotating taps that feature the finest ales and lagers of the Pacific Northwest and the World. Freshly grilled deli sandwiches are the menu specialty along with soups, salads and appetizers. Swing by for a quick lunch or spend an afternoon, either way the service is always friendly and the beer is always fresh.
