the four of us enjoyed a great meal served by a friendly waitress who took very good care of us. The food was delicious and the portions were large. Very satisfying.

Love the fresh ingredient foods. Atmosphere is always welcoming! Can be really busy at times. Love the bacon bleu burger and the chicken berry salad is also a great option.

Since our TripAdvisor review in 2012, we have been to the Railhouse Grill numerous times. On all occasions we have had excellent food and service. Last month the owners opened the Coffee Depot in another section of the building which serves a variety of beverages featuring expressos, coffees and teas along with selections of homemade pastries and light breakfast items....

Heard good things about this restaurant, and was also drawn by the railroad theme. Our waitress, Penny, greeted us enthusiastically, making us feel very welcome. Soup was delicious and dinner was outstanding. Penny treated us like long lost friends, and was always on top of our needs. The bonus was watching the Amtrak train wiz by. We loved it!

Our party of 5 enjoyed everything we ordered. Two ordered the Mac n cheese bacon burger, one pasta, one pulled pork and one grilled chicken on cranberry bread. Excellent. Sides were also good as was the service.

My family visits this restaurant quite frequently. We went there tonight with a group of 9 of us but the hostess tried to seat us all at two separate tables. This seemed odd to us so, since they weren't busy at all, we pushed two tables together and all sat down. Our waitress quickly came over and told us that... More

Thank you for your feedback. Customer service and quality, timely food service continue to be our top priorities, and the seating decision is an effort to improve both. We have found that when we seat large groups together it affects the servers ability to give fair attention to all tables, the kitchen backs up filling the large order, tables seated... More

We arrived in Lake City in time for lunch and looked for this place, since we knew it would serve a variety of beers. They had a special on the Parmesan Walleye Sandwich, and I washed it down with an apple ale. The sandwich was very savory, and the cole slaw was nice and creamy. My husband had a Rueben... More
