The desserts were absolutely Delicious!!!!! My only complaint would be that our bus girl was more of our server... read 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!

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!

We have eaten at Railside a few times over the past 12 months and have never been disappointed. While hubby always chooses the prime rib ( I don't cook meat at home!) I usually choose the fish. It is consistently fresh tasting, moist and delicious! The wine is very reasonably priced, although the wine selection is limited to 4 red... More

Great variety of food from lunch to dinner. Economical prices. Good steaks and pastas. Lunch specials. Eat upstairs with table service or ground floor with a less fancy setting.

the seats in the main floor restaurant are uncomfortable and too low to the table. I have suggested this change for years with no response. Upstairs is better but with a larger reservations you can cramped in and cant move back or sideways without disturbing everyone near. Décor is getting very tired , been the same for years. getting less... More
