I,found this place one day while driving. The Whistle Stop Cafe, It looked kinda neet from the outside, so I turned around to give it a try. (The best move I've made in a long time). Upon going inside, I was greeted very nicely, and they really make you fill at home,there whole staff was very plesant and friendy, kind of nice to see people working and having fun with the custormers. This place really has a following, as I, sat while waiting for my food ,which did not take long, I notisted that the staff new a lot of people by name as well as a lot of the customers new each other. After biting into the Softshell sandwich that I, havent had sence I, was at my uncle's house, down on the bay last summer. It was, Exceptional to say the least. I, really enjoyed myself so much and the food was so good, I deceided to invite my aunt and uncle, of course my wife and son as well, for lunch the following weekend. This was a brave thing to do as you would have to know my aunt when it comes to food, Of course she had to have the seafood platter, uncle Roy tried the Bar-B-Que plate, Bob my son had a Whistle Stop Burger, which they asked how he would like it cooked!! my wife had a Smoked chicken salad stuffed tomato, she said was to die for and I, went for the Softshell Platter and a cup of Gumbo this time.This is a MUST TRY, You won't be sorry, You'll be glad you did !!

First rule in serving food: serve hot foods hot,in hot plate; serve cold foods cold in cold plate. I've served for years and I was truly dissapointed to get my california chicken salad in a hot plate with hot wilted lettuce and strawberrys :( The server didn't check back to correct the problem quickly. And my party was finished with their ribs and chicken by the time I got a freash sald with cold lettuce. That was dissapointing considering salads should be ready first. Please lteach this simple rule to servers before they are on the floor.
Not all Chili's are created equal. Food wasn't the best. Went to the all you can eat enchilada promotion well, you get what you paid for. My sever was good. I then went back and ordered a rib-eye steak the steak was if I'm luck an eight of a inch thick and was under cooked (my bad I've should have sent it back) my server was nowhere to be found and when I pressed the call for assistance button he was nowhere t be found and had to ask another server to locate a manager. i've had good experiences wit the Chili's in Miami FL and Humble TX.
The whole staff is wonderful, they take time with you and answer any questions you have. I love being able to get things quick if needed without going in a big store. I have been going there for 5 years and they have maintained fair prices. Crabmeat is the same price as it is in bigger stores and its always fresh. They have homemade West Indies that taste just like my own. I encourage you to try them, especially if you need something quick to cook.
The last few times I have been here I have asked to speak to the manager about how great the service is. They really do go above and beyond. If you get good service let your waiter and manager know. The food is decent. We usually just get appetizers. The nachos are pretty hefty. try it out if you are in the area.. They have roasted peanuts at the beginning of each meal and they are really good.
Service is up to par here. They live up to their name. Great quality ribs ,and shrimp are large and juicy. Steaks are fresh not frozen and you can tell it.The slaw is not average.. some may like it asian style but not I..If you like a mayo base do not try it! Very good drinks and specials. Would like to come back with the guys and get one of the new bar booths.
I came in today with a friend today who is wheel chair bound. As I started in I had problems with his wheel chair. I had several customers ask to help me. Then I had several employees ask to help. We had a great meal and wonderful service. I know David Cahoon and wanted to thank him for his employees help and kindness.
I have traveled many places looking for music, this bar is the best. Live blues 5 nights a week. All the bands are top rated. Day drinking is fun here too. You will feel right at home. There is a court yard and a man cave. A middle age crowd where a woman can walk in and will feel at home. Dancing a must!,
My friends and I love this Fridays!! The bar is great and the food is really good! They have a lot of new items on their menu. I love the garlic Parmesan sauce on the wings, and I recently tried the french dip and fell in love!! This place is really clean and classy! service is friendly :)
We Went And Gave Them A Try, I Got The Large Shrimp & Oysters They Were Fresh From Bayou La Batre And They Were Great!!! I Haven't Tasted Shrimp & Oysters That Good In A Very Long Time!!! I Went Back The Next Day With My Daughter They Were Great Again!!! Great Seafood And Great Service!!!
