Succumbing to the buzz, we tried this restaurant and will not be trying it again. It's just another one of those typical restaurants you find everywhere with massive unimaginative menus and mediocre food. I suspect the draw is the relatively low prices (which when applied to items such as beef steak, leave me very, very nervous about trying it). With... More

A weekend special at Railside is prime rib $22. We always order medium rare and wow, is it delicious! Every year we go to Railside for the family Christmas dinner (15 of us) and the service and hospitality are fantastic!

Always an enjoyable experience time after time. The bordelaise steak is awesome! The waitresses are very friendly and attentive. Was booked a month ahead at Christmas time of year so that would indicate how popular it really is. The 12oz. new york is also very good. The brushetta break is excellent!

Came here with a friend after a LONG day of work. We ordered our main meals and literally ate two loaves of bread as soon as we sat down. The bread at rail side is AMAZING, I would probably order it on its own if I could. The service is good and the food is fantastic! This restaurant has a... More

This is a good place to eat if you have a good home cooked meal. We had the hot hamburger meal. The hamburger was not the frozen type, nice onions on top with a delicious home made gravy. The garden salad was very good too. Fries were golden brown, not greasymmmmmmmm.

I have been to The Railside Restaurant 6 times now, and thought that I had better do a review on such a great eatery! In fact, this has now become my go-to spot for all out of town guests, and where I choose to go to for my birthday dinners. Without exception the food and service is consistently good. I... More

Our favourite place to meet family for a special occasion celebration. They always give you perks for birthdays or anniversaries! Never had a bad meal there & the staff are just wonderful. Good place for a reasonable lunch with the girls also! Downstairs is more fast food fare, haven't tried that as yet.
