“Food was great. Service no so good”

The Whistle Stop at The American Cafe'
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 July 2018 via mobile

My wife and I stopped in for lunch. Place was busy but not jammed. Nice atmosphere
Our waiter jake took our drink order. Along with water I ordered an orange blossom. This drink did not come out until I was half way through my pizza. The drink has ice cream which was non existent when it arrived to the table. And it was not real cold. So seemed it might have sat around awhile before finding our table. After we ate my wife ordered pie. This pie never arrived at the table even after we were told " she getting it". Then we received the bill. No pen. Had to wait on that to fill it out. At least the pie did not make it there either
Food was great. And we will come back. Just not good when your memory of the first visit is. Poor service.

There’s a lot to say for a cozy place to stop. I got the BLT it was really very good. The only problem was the service our waiter seemed as though his mind was elsewhere. I asked for s piece of coconut cream pie. He replied she would bring it out. It never came and wasn’t on the bill. I was disappointed I would go back they have A very nice menu but I would need s different server who’s head wasn’t in the clouds

The menu is simple but offers options that are sure to please everyone. The offerings are standard American cuisine. If you get an option to have the fries or the homemade Chips, try the Chips. The atmosphere was fun with a variety of artifacts on the wall for interest. The staff was friendly and the food was prepared quickly. If you are in TR this might be just the place to fill your hunger especially if you are short on time.

Cool little place right in the center of TR. I got a burger...good and the fried green tomatoes are to die for. I need to get back there soon.

Overall we enjoyed our experience here. Our waiter returned several times throughout the meal to ask if we needed anything, but never once noticed when cups were empty or offered to refill. Kids meals come in a box train, which was fun, but their meal was rather small for the $. And the "fruit" side was canned mandarin oranges, not even fresh fruit. That was a disappointment.
