The food and service is very good. If you have guests, take them here they have a great dining room with special food. Good prices. The food here is better than the big fancy ones in Toronto. They also have a small dining room if you want simple food like burgers and fries. The breakfast here is very good too.

We have been there several times. This time, we were hurried, and our order was not taken down in writing and my order was not as requested. I asked for the souvlaki combo, (chicken and pork), but I received pork only and it was overcooked. My wife ordered Filet, and it was done as requested and she enjoyed it very... More

Was not at all impressed with the very unprofessional waitress staff. As a party of 4 we almost left before we were actually served. Seating was very awkward and the waitress made some ignorant comments, Dinner was actually pretty good, however trying to get a second cup of coffee was an absolute joke. There are much better restaurants around that... More

We have eaten at this restaurant four times and each time have been impressed by the food and service. If you like liver, and I do, you are in for a treat. We have also had the prime rib available on Friday and Saturday nights which is very popular and so delicious. A great dessert selection is available if you... More

This restaurant is a local favourite. The service is normally good, the restaurant is fairly large but reservations are recommended on Saturday evenings and holidays like Mother's Day or New Years Eve. The menu is fairly varied, lots of choices and the food is good, it won't blow you away but is a safe choice when dining in Port Hope.

I've been here a couple of times for lunch and dinner. It was OK. We decided to try breakfast a few weeks ago and would not go again. Price was about mid-range but I thought it was really on the high side when you consider that you order at the desk and then they bring your food. The music was... More

I love the Railside. We always have great meals and my favourites are the peppercorn steak as well as bruschetta feta chicken. My only complaint is that unless you are a big group you tend to get the worst table in the house. Your should not get penalized because of only being a group of two!!!! We do not go... More

We had a very pleasant surprise when having dinner here with family. The menu, service, food were all excellent. They gave huge portions and not much was left. The Greek dishes were much appreciated. And our server was very friendly telling us about her recent travels which was interesting. Overall excellent and we will be back when in the area.
