Stopped in here for lunch on our way North and was very pleased with our experience! Whitney did a phenomenal job taking care of us. We had the bison burger with sweet potato fries, fried pickles, and pimento cheese sandwich and everything was absolutely delicious! Parking is a little limited but the ambience within the restaurant is welcoming and truly feels like a Whistle Stop. We were fortunate enough to have a train come by while we were there to get the full experience. The gift shop is wonderful as it changes with the seasons. It is very easy to find as it is right off the interstate a few miles and definitely worth visiting. Local food with a local flair and the friendliest staff!

The facility takes you back in time - quite a few rooms for several diners each, high privacy booths with lots of wood, but it's the food that is, if you have been lucky, just like home cooked comfort food. We did the vegetables including fried green tomatoes, corn pudding, fried okra, and sweet potato fries - my oh my- southern food at its best. The waitresses were responsive, helpful, and nice. Can't wait to go back - Oh, I did twice in one day.

My husband an I went to spend day in Glendale an decided to have lunch at the Whistle stop. This was third time in last 15 years I had been there. It was busy as could be expected on a Saturday. We signed in an were told to check back in 30 minutes. We went to a few shops an came back an were seated. I had the French onion soup Wich came with corn bread for $6.99 it was great. My husband had meatloaf also good. The corn bread is wonderful. Service was good and we will be back soon.

It was a little on the pricey side but there isn’t a lot of competition in town. The service was good and the meatloaf and fried chicken were just okay. The fried green tomatoes were heavily battered and came with a very different sauce.
