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

Good meal at Whistle Stop. Had the monte cristo and the lemonade. Food was only average but both the lemonade and the limeade are really good.

Beer is good atmosphere is good, food not so much. I ordered salad and sandwich on rye. There was a hair on my plate and got wheat bread. I ate it anyway, it still tasted good.

We had dinner there, but the oompah band made it difficult to have conversation. The rest of the persons there enjoyed the music. The help was good and the food was fine;

We don't visit as often as we used to, but Whistle stop is reliable. Salads, sandwiches and burgers are good. They have dinner specials most days. Decent beer selection and craft cocktails. Ceph the bartender is great.

They do have huge hamburgers and they do have lots of different beers. In fact, you will not go away wanting more to eat. Tucked away in the center of Renton Washington you will find the Whistle Stop Ale House where they serve fine foods....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.
