he Restaurant was remodeled after a fire. They have 2 floors with a long bar on the first.In good weather there is also outdoor seating with the glass window opened. Meals are very good, but a bit pricey. Brunch is also available. If you like muffins, then this is your place.

We decided to have Brunch after our trip to Carlos bake house, of Cake Boss fame. This place was definitely the place to be but the food was quite mediocre. I suppose if you are in a group, the sun is shining and you drink plenty of cocktails the food is unimportant, but I was hungry and my food was... More

The restaurant offers a nice variety of offerings. All of our food was well prepared and nicely presented: shrimp cocktail, oysters, roasted beat salad, venison, steamed salmon and skirt steak. While the bar scene downstairs can be overwhelmingly noisy, one can opt to dine in the relatively quitter upstairs room. The waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. They have an... More

I went for late lunch my husband and there was no one to seat us. We had to wait for a couple of minutes until we volunteered to seat ourselves then when I raised my hand for one of the waiters, a nice lady approached us saying she worked there and took our order wrong for drinks. I had sliders... More

We had come to Brass Rail for a private party on Saturday, Jan. 11. The service staff was incredibly helpful and attentive. The food was impeccable. I had a nicely seasoned grilled salmon. The chocolate mousse was rich and satisfying. I would definitely want to return for a regular lunch or dinner. I had peeked at the wine list and... More

The upstairs seating was an excellent location if you are looking for a quiet spot to speak with business associates and enjoy very good food and spirits. There were no complaints about the food and the waiters were excellent. Will go back again with my family.

I have to specially salute the service recently experienced here. I had a meal with family during busy brunch hour, with one person elderly and with limited mobility. Rick was working the front and took care of us: he and the other staff got us a good table with only a short wait, and ensured that everything went smoothly throughout... More

The Brass Rail can be a hit or a miss... I have heard from a lot of people that the food is not great, but decided to try their lobster roll, which was absolutely delicious. However, their chips were staled and the waiter didn't take it off the bill.
