About Whistle Stop Grill and Bar

A landmark nestled along the railroad tracks in the Safety Harbor area for over 30 years the Whistle Stop Grill and Bar began as a drive-in ice cream stand called “The Frostee Harbor” offering just burgers and fries and “Henry’s Famous milk shakes” by Jane and Henry Fox.

The noteworthy milkshakes remain and are now offered among many other modern exciting food and drink options.
