We always love a good night at the rail side. The upstairs atmosphere is amazing and really gives you the feeling of eating in an extremely expensive restaurant! The food and service are always perfection. The downstairs area is the perfect place to eat in or take out. The murder mystery held every October is a fun, great time for... More

Two different dinning areas. A more fancier upstairs and a less fancier downstairs. We ate at the downstairs. You order and pay. At the counter before sitting in a both. The food was quick reasonable and very tasty. Can't wait to try this place again soon.

My family and I went to the Railside on Saturday, July 5, 2014 to celebrate a birthday. We were hoping to have lunch but were disappointment that the dining room was not open.

We went for an end of day dinner last Friday and I just wanted to post a really good review for this lovely place. I've been going with my family to Railside now for about 8 years. Somehow we always end up celebrating our anniversary and birthdays here. The "expensive side" is a lovely place to enjoy a special occasion... More

I am a volunteer with a local organization and often get asked about good places to eat. I will usually recommend this restaurant. I have eaten in both the downstairs and main dining room. The service is always so friendly and the food is prepared very well. I like the wide menu and they also are very accommodating when our... More

We had a large party of 11 loud people. When making reservations, I did request that we have a table in the back dining room so that we would be less disturbing to other patrons but upon our arrival was disappointed to find that they had put us in the front room right by the entrance door. The wait staff... More

Service was impeccable. Ambiance and décor was inviting and relaxing. Quality of the food presented was just as you expected. Cudo's to the entire staff, well done... More

Dinner with friends at the Railside Restaurant. The restaurant was highly recommended. Great food for a good price. Lots of parking and the restaurant is accessible. Plenty of menu options to choose from. Dessert options are also plentiful and good. Wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. It's a nice touch when the Manager/owner stopped by to see how our...

The restaurant we most often go to for normal western food. Warning: they are so popular that, if you see it's crowded, come another time: long waits are possible during their over-busy times. Otherwise, they have a full range of excellent menu items.

This is one of our most favourite restaurants in Northumberland County. They have a varied menu with a Greek flavour, great prime rib with yorkshire on Friday eveniungs and they bring around a desert selection which is impossible for us to resist.
