Since 1995, I have had a true romance with this place. Purchasing it not once, but twice! The second time was with my husband Patrick in 2000. Together we created today's Whistle Stop Grill & Bar. Originally owned by Jane & Henry Fox, Frostee Harbor was a steadfast
landmark for over 35 years. It was a drive-in ice cream stand with
a limited menu of burgers, fries, and Henry's famous milkshakes.
They are still on our menu! Through the years we have enjoyed
hearing many folks reminisce and share their lively anecdotes of
coming here ‘back in the day.’
WE'VE COME A LONG WAY
Ever evolving, we have carefully created our real good food, fresh cocktails, and 18 taps of the best beers. From our early days of 'take-out only,' to now with over 100 dining seats and a full bar, we are pleased keep our Old Florida charm with a New Vibe. We are forever grateful to every one of you for helping us be ‘almost famous.’

Delicious! Ordered an item and asked for a substitution on the protein and it was perfect. They were friendly and we would definitely eat there next time in town.

This is a winner - I like going to a lot of different restaurants but you will NEVER have to twist my arm to get me here. I found out about Whistle Stop in 2010 & have been a regular, frequent, happy & well fed customer ever since. I have enjoyed everything I've tried here - except for one dish that I had never liked before either.

Great place to chill out with friends.
Local hometown place with a history. Service is great, food plentiful, and drinks done right. Pricing is very reasonable for what you receive. Really enjoy it every time I go.

We love the Whistle Stop! The environment is laid back and it is kid friendly. Miss Lorraine is always so sweet and welcoming. My go to is the duck flat bread and the ribeye sandwich although there are so many great items to choose from. The bar always has a good selection of craft beers and fresh cocktails. Service is normally fast and they let us order right away for the kids. Great outdoor place to have lunch or dinner. Don't forget the ice cream if you have room!

I love the ambience of this busy little restaurant! It was busy at noon today so we ate at the bar. 12 beers on draft and a wonderful menu. I had a veggie plate with beans and rice which was not only tasty but filling and my friend had a burger which he said was delicious. I like their use of fresh foods prepared creatively.
“I love the ambience!”
