Good Restaurant

We've eaten here a few times when visiting my mother. She's in a wheelchair and the staff is always very accommodating. The food has always been very good.

My boyfriend brought me here while on a weekend getaway. I was surprised. I had looked at pictures online and didn't have high expectations for the place to be honest, but he raved about it so I agreed to eat here. I am so glad that I did! The pictures did not show the true atmosphere of the restaurant. In... More

I have eaten here twice. They have fabric tablecloths and paper napkins. I ordered the spaghetti w/ marinara sauce and the lasagna. Both items appear to be premade, especially the lasagna. Kind of like a quality frozen dinner, but not priced that way. Service is barely adequate to take the order & deliver the food, nothing more. I would not... More

We love this place! This is where we take all our out-of-town guests, and they have all loved it, too. Great food and atmosphere.

We've eaten here a few times. I would rate it a 5 - but I don't like the spaghetti / marinara sauce. To me, it tasted pepper-hot, vs just flavorful and savory. I prefer their other dishes, which are very good. The service is good, and it's a clean, pleasant place to eat. If you haven't been, do go and... More

This place has really good pizza. My son had the spaghetti and didn't like it at all. But he is a picky eater so next time we are there we will just get them the kids chicken strips

I had the lasagna and my husband had the chicken pasta primavera. (Not sure of the name) They were both delicious.

Brothers Railroad Inn is arguably the best restaurant in town. I was blown away by a delicious and very healthy dinner I had to celebrate my birthday recently. I had salmon, broccoli, and a baked potato. I asked for a medium-sized potato and got just what I wanted. All the food was well presented and cooked to perfection. Plenty of... More

Brother's is one of those one of a kind local gems. Their food is all from family recipes. Freshly prepared. Great service wine beer and mixed drinks too. Everything is good! The piazza is surely just the best I have ever had. Give this great place a try sometime.
