Lots of variety

We had my sister inlaws Birthday, table of 10. I love the atmoshphere in the dining room but it could use a little more light for the elderly. We had to use the flashlight on our cell phone so my Father could view the menu. Our reservation was for 5:30pm and the special was prime rib which we were... read more

Googled eateries in Port Hope on our trip home from Montreal. What a pleasant surprise for such a small town. Unfortunately our eyes were bigger than our stomachs so after our appetizers of great calamari and French onion soup we had to take our entrees to go. Our server was so pleasant and accommodating that the next time we are... More

Quick lunches of the typical variety at the front of house. Gyros,burgers,blts etc great value for money. The dining room however is where the real major happens. Creative dishes, fresh ingredients generally awesome. Daily specials always worth a try.

Enjoy coming back to the Railside. The steaks and prime rib are excellent. Never had a bad meal and the service is very attentive.

First of all , we had a very knowledgable & friendly waitress, having said that , things went downhill , ordered drinks, coffee was cold. While ordering starters we were asked if we wanted to order our entre, we all (4 ) agreed we would but I specifically asked that it not be prepared until we were finished our starters.... More

I enjoy going to Railside with my friends if we want to sit down and get quick food. Went for lunch the majority of the time. There's a little diner side but also has another dining room that's more upscale. It has pretty basic foods like burgers, pastas, fish and chips and sides. They also serve Greek food that's pretty...

I have been going here for many years until an incident last month. They have one waitress with no customer service qualities at all. At one one point when we asked a question about our meal she told us not to poke the bear. We looked at each other and said what the heck was that. Also my sister just... More

We went on a Saturday night for an anniversary dinner. Could not have been better. Prime Rib and Fillet Mignon were delicious. Veggies (cauliflower and broccoli were cooked perfectly! We've been here and will definitely be back!

We stopped at the Railside for lunch today just to get off the 401. With young kids in tow, we wanted a sit-down locale that served kid-friendly fare, and found it here. I made my order at the counter, and the staff were quite friendly and the food was served quickly. The food itself was not memorable, but it was... More

I had very tasty burger with fries. I also signed up for birthday and anniversary discounts. I can't wait to return, the staff was quite friendly and the food was delicious! I also want to return with reservations for their fine dining experience. Menu for that looks fab!
