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.

Very cheerful and nice to have a menu that addresses everyone’s dining preferences like gluten free. Vegan, etc. Also great to have mid day breakfast. The weakest link was their fries. They were standard frozen fries, not homemade. Service was friendly and very efficient. Definitely one of the better restaurants in Renton and very reasonably priced.

She got heavily battered shrimp with yam fries. She ended up removing the heavy batter to eat just the shrimp. The first bite of fries she just spit out. My rueben has little meat and tons of kraut. My French fries were good.

Good food, good service. It is very family oriented. On the other hand, there is nothing wrong with this place at all. Just a fun place to eat.

The server needs a little more experience or something. We were eating with our forks in our food and he came by to ask are we done with our food??? Also when we asked to sit in a booth we got an eye roll and big sigh.. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice though.

It was a pleasant surprise to have the USMNT game playing so that entertained my husband as I tried to catch up with a dear friend. Thank you for also heeding my request to get the check. Like the small touches.

Would have provided the final star for gluten-free support on the menu -- though note that it did support those looking for vegetarian options.

No show. Soda empty. Walked by and looked at table 3 times did nothing. I had to ask expediter to refill soda and bring water when he brought out food. Meatloaf was dry and full of fillers. I had to get another servers attention. She asked if things were ok i said no i just want the check so I can pay and leave. Server then shows up to make excuses and argue with me. I had to ask twice for her to just run my credt card. Wrote note on receipt and fully expected manager to call but to date no calls. Clear that they are not interested in repeat business

I made reservations for 8 and my party grew to 10. Originally, they told me we wouldn't be able to add anymore, but as luck would have it, they were able to make room for all of us and they seemed happy to do it. Everybody that took care of us was so nice and made us feel like regulars. I will definitely visit again and recommend to my friends and family.

We all love the food, the staff are friendly, and the coffee and bloody marys are great! We only reserve a table on busy weekends (such as Mother's Day) but on a regular weekend we'll just head over - sometimes there's a wait, but that's fine. We love this place.

They have outdoor seating which is great on a nice evening. However, they often seem understaffed (never see management around) and sometimes their food is subpar. Other times its great. They always have a variety of draft beers. I would definitely be more inclined to recommend them to others if they were more consistent with food and service.

The owners have perfected an all around great place for any occasion. Food is well made and the service is great. Nice to have the option as a restaurant or a pub, and great place for breakfast and brunches too! Highly recommend it!
