We got together with family members and were very happy with the broasted chicken and dumplings. I could even eat all of it. Very good atmosphere. Good size portions. If you like dumplings, these are great.

Stopped by on a Saturday night with family and the bartender (guy) was extremely rude. Won't be going back again!

It is a small town restaurant, but the Whistle Stop has the best pizza in the Lonsdale and surrounding towns area. Of course they have more than pizza and are well-known for their good broasted chicken. It is newly remodeled and it looks very nice....More

Our large group of 10 enjoyed good service and food. Three of us split a large pizza, delivered piping hot to our table and thoroughly enjoyed. My sister had the marinara sandwich on ciabatta and raved about it. My mom ordered the chicken rice soup...More

I hadn't been to Lonsdale in 15 + years, We were trying to find a place to take my nephews to eat, really no options. Finally remembered the Whistle Stop--THE BEST FOOD--:-) I highly recommend this restaurant, well worth the"whistle stop".

Lots of simple comfort food. Nothing fancy but good. Choice of eating at bar area or seperate family area.
