Nothing special, easy place to have dinner on a Friday night. Great beer selection. Would be a much better place to go after work for a beer than a place god a full meal.

Called in here for lunch. Arrived at 2.30pm so missed breakfast :( Burger was nice. But to see a plane going past on the back of a train was something I won't forget! My eyes couldn't believe what they were seeing.

Ate here in ‘15 so tried it again when we returned. Just as good as I remembered. Excellent breakfast(esp hash browns and Eggs Benedict). Quirky local pub....will return again

Sorry but we will never go back for breakfast! Specifically asked for eggs to be fully cooked and even the whites were still uncooked! The hash browns had no color to them at all and apparently we're cooked in old oil as they had a...More

We were glad we stopped by the Whistle Stop. The steaks were well done. The chowder was chock full of clams and bacon bits. And most of all my companion’s spaghetti sauce had been simmering all day.

The place looks nice but the staff seem very uninterested in their customers. It was as if we were unwanted guest. Food was sub par and healthy options were even worst. When I asked for a beer menu I received a handwritten illegible scrap piece...More

What I like about this place is that the menu has creativity and does not just throw out the normal bar fare. We came in for breakfast, not knowing what to expect. I went with the Crab Cake Benedict, my son had the Huevos Rancheros...More

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.
