I tried this place again to try to see what people see in it. There are people who swear by their food. I find it okay. The BBQ is the best thing on the menu, but even that is not outstanding. It has always seemed like a cold place to me. There doesn't seem to be any real consistency to the experience or any idea of whether they want to be a beer bar, a sports bar, or a place to listen to music. Just when you think it's a sports bar, they will turn off the sound on an NCAA playoff game so that everyone can listen to a piano player. The beer selection, which occasional notable exceptions, are plebian. The Yuengling is usually the best tap beer, and the bottle selection isn't much better. I did find a Sam Adam's Winter Ale on tap, and it was very good. The food is normal bar fare with an emphasis on the BBQ. It's okay but not great.

Whistlers is an unpretentious bar/restaurant in Cinnaminson, NJ right on route 130. There's a huge parking lot and a seperate entrance for the bar and dining room. The bar is open, warm, and cozy with wall-to-wall carpeting, dark wood chair backs all around, and green and creme walls accentuated by old fashioned lamps. There are old-fashioned (antique, perhaps?) booths and cocktail tables to the left, and a full-size shuffle board table to the right. And there's a beautiful antique back bar and cash register behind the bar, but they're marred by the 6 TV's perched above it. And those TV's are not alone, there's 3 more on each side of the bar and several in each corner to make a total of 16 altogether. It's great for big games, however, and there's the Buzztime quiz game available which is at least a little bit redeeming. And, to be honest, this is a talkative bar. It's not like it's just a bunch of people hunched over their beers. The regulars are friendly and jovial.
There are only 8 beers on tap, but it's a good selection and there are several more available in bottles. Some of the regular taps include Guinness, Bass, Samuel Adam's seasonal, Sierra Nevada's seasonal (Celebration Ale $3.50 pint), Yuengling and Flying Fish.
The food at the bar is reasonably priced, basic pub grub with a good selection of deep fried appetizers (stuffed jalapenos 2.95), hot & cold sandwiches (turkey hoagie 5.95, grilled cheese 3.25, pizza steak 4.25, BLT 3.55, burger 3.99), pizzas (4.99), chili (2.95) and their specialty wings (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ribs (12.99 half / 16.99 full). The staff is friendly enough, and a good time is almost guaranteed!
