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.

The Railside offers a new and improved menu specializing in Beef and Greek. A good selection of wine and all at a very reasonable price. The service is great and the attendants really care about your satisfaction. If you register on line you will receive discounts for your birthday and/or anniversary. Give it a try, I don't think you will... More

My husband and I stopped in here as a pit spot on our 2 hour drive. We were blown away. I had the bacon wrapped fillets, with a ceaser salad app and a glass of wine. I was shocked at how in expensive my steak dinner was and how delicious it tasted! The ambiance of the restaurant was romantic. The... More

We went to Railside on a recommendation from numerous friends. It was our wedding anniversary and thought it was the perfect opportunity. We were able to easily book our reservation online which was super convenient! Once we got there they were extremely accommodating when we preferred a different table then where they first placed us. Food and service was good.... More

Ate here with a party of 10 for a birthday dinner. The service was good and the food was also good. I wouldn't say great, just good. The only issue we had was both my wife's and my beef was over cooked. Medium rare was the order, a NY sirloin and a tenderloin were both medium well. The side dishes... More
