We eat here when we are visiting relatives in Boalsburg. The atmosphere of the old train station is part of the charm of eating at the Whistle Stop. We are in town visiting again and have learned this is the last week that the restaurant will be open. We wish the best of luck to the owners and employees of... More

This is a wonderful place for everyone. The railroad theme is appealing, and the restaurant is housed in the old Centre Hall train station. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. This is the best restaurant anywhere near Centre Hall. Centre Hall is a dry borough; so BYOB.

This was a repeat visit to this restaurant with a great railroad motif. I visited as part of a party of six. We were seated promptly even though there was a large party of about 12 that came in ahead of us. The wait staff was friendly and courteous even though they were running their tails off. The food is... More

This is an old Train Station and they kept it that way. And it is full of other train decor. The food is delicious and the Whistle Stop Salad is a must.

After a trip to Penn's Cave, I stopped here with a friend for lunch. The building itself is unique and rather historic; with lots of railroad related memorabilia. I had a chicken, bacon and cheese sandwich, and my companion had a cheesesteak, and both were delicious! The wait staff were all very friendly, and the food was prepared in a... More

We went for lunch, but they also do dinner. A varied menu with diverse choices. We weren't too hungry so we didn't eat a lot, but what we did get was good. The crab bites were light with a tasty aioli and the "spike" potatoes were like very good potato skins. The Cole slaw side for the BLT was a... More

We had lunch here. I had the fried shrimp special. The shrimp were very good with a tempura type batter and no shell on the tail. The coleslaw was good also. The wife had a Reuben sandwich which was good also. Prices were mostly $7 to $9 for lunch. The restaurant and restrooms were spotless.

Nice restaurant with historic nature. Decently priced but the servings were a bit smaller. The booths were small but nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was tasty.

We've passed by this quaint looking restaurant many times and finally decided to try it. It's an historic train depot and as quaint as can be. They have a nice, basic menu with good choices and great prices. The servers are very, very friendly! Our lunches were delicious and the desserts, which are all made in-house, are yummy! We'll definitely... More
