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!

Fast and friendly service. Everything on the menu is delicious! I had a thinner twist on the Monte Cristo, a friend had a mushroom goat cheese omelet, another friend had corned beef and hash on eggs, and another friend had a Mexican omelet with all the fixing! Everyone loved there food! Great atmosphere!

First, the usual calamari review. Just so-so. A garlic lemon twist which was nice, and it was cooked evenly. But no real flavor. Would have no problem stopping again. Just would not go out of our way. I had the San Diego Station burger, my wife had the Renton Station sandwich. The San Diego was good with the quac, with... More

Breakfast was very good. Service was slow but it was busy so it was loud too. Coffee was especially good. Our breakfast were hot and tasty. We'll defiantly be back, just a little earlier.

This has become our go-to place. We stop in for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, or just beverages! They make a mean bloody mary too! I recommend the portabella omelette for breakfast/brunch!

Description
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.
