I,found this place one day while driving. The Whistle Stop Cafe, It looked kinda neet from the outside, so I turned around to give it a try. (The best move I've made in a long time). Upon going inside, I was greeted very nicely, and they really make you fill at home,there whole staff was very plesant and friendy, kind of nice to see people working and having fun with the custormers. This place really has a following, as I, sat while waiting for my food ,which did not take long, I notisted that the staff new a lot of people by name as well as a lot of the customers new each other. After biting into the Softshell sandwich that I, havent had sence I, was at my uncle's house, down on the bay last summer. It was, Exceptional to say the least. I, really enjoyed myself so much and the food was so good, I deceided to invite my aunt and uncle, of course my wife and son as well, for lunch the following weekend. This was a brave thing to do as you would have to know my aunt when it comes to food, Of course she had to have the seafood platter, uncle Roy tried the Bar-B-Que plate, Bob my son had a Whistle Stop Burger, which they asked how he would like it cooked!! my wife had a Smoked chicken salad stuffed tomato, she said was to die for and I, went for the Softshell Platter and a cup of Gumbo this time.This is a MUST TRY, You won't be sorry, You'll be glad you did !!

The Grove is a great place to live because the rent is cheap and the commute to classes is minimal driving-wise. In fact, for new incoming residents wanting a 3 BR 1200 sq. ft unit, the rent, which always includes all but like $10 of utilities, is only going to be $485/month. In my case, it is only $455/month, because it is my second year here since a $30 cheaper rent was an incentive to sign for another year, six months early. Often times, in my experience, the occupancy level is below capacity; My unit only has two of us, and my roommate is moving out at the end of this month, while I happen to be looking for someone to take my lease because I am doing a leave of absence from school. The free internet and basic cable have been nice. I don’t know if phone service is free or not because I just use my 688,9377 non-Mobile mobile (480) number. There are volleyball and basketball courts and a soccer field for the athletic, and there is a fire pit and grills for outdoor hangouts. If you wanna swim, there is a decent pool, and for those who are into the other kind of pool, there is a pool table at the main office, across from their fitness center which is available 24/7 to only those living in the Grove. I would definitely recommend the Grove to incoming students, whether I was leaving or not.
