We stayed in the hotel overnight and decided to stay local and eat at The Whistle Stop which is downstairs. The food and the service were both excellent and I would recommend it to anyone. Authentic dishes prepared very well. Even the bread was home made. I was tempted to get the paella but opted for Lamb Shanks instead and... More

We stayed at the hotel above it and decided to give it a go, and boy were we surprised. The offer Spanish food, we had the paella and a ceasar salad and both were outstanding.

Hotel Redland is a historic building and the new owners chose to retain the Whistle Stop name from the previous owners. The cuisine, however, is authentic Spanish. Not Latin - Spanish as in featuring tapas and paella among other offerings. They did keep burgers and chicken, but the main part of the menu is Mediterranean.

I heard this place sold several months ago so we were anxious to try the "new place." With several flags of Spain hanging around the outside of the building, we figured it was tapas and such - we were almost right. Their menu is Mediterranean and everything we tried was very good! We started with an assortment of meats and... More

Stopped in for lunch while out running errands in the area. This place is so different from most Homestead restaurants, and that's a good thing. Spanish food done well – the octopus and fried chickpeas were both amazing! My companion got the hamburger – a half pound of tenderloin. He raved about it and the perfect fries that accompanied it.... More

My family & I loved the outside look of the Whistle Stop. It's located inside a historical Homestead hotel that has many historical pictures of Homestead. Since moving to Homestead 10 years ago we have always wanted to try the Whistle Stop but just never did. Unfortunately our excitement ended all too quickly once we arrived. The restaurant has about... More

The food was good... but it took forever to be served! The waiters were nice but very slow... They gave as a pretext for the slow service that there was a big group of people (apparently approx. 10), even if the rest of the restaurant was almost empty! They also forgot the drinks order of the table next to us...... More
