High End or Medium End

There are actually 2 types of restaurants in this place. When you go in you can chose a counter style order or you can chose the fine dining end. We chose the fine dining. The food was excellent, The staff were awesome to deal with.

For a special occasion, you can't beat the up side of Railside. We order the saganaki which comes with a heavenly salsa sauce and tiny toasted triangles of pita. Order the steak! The steak at this place has won awards and one bite will show you why. The desserts are always fresh and beautifully presented. The wait staff are friendly... More

I have been here many times. I usually eat here at lunch, I dine-in and also order take-out from time to time. The chicken souvlaki is what I usually order, it is really good. Another item that is amazing is the chicken parmigiana. I am really picky with my souvlaki and chicken parmigiana, I am from Toronto and have tried... More

My husband and I were traveling on the 401 from Kingston back to Etobicoke and decided to take a break and hit hwy 2 for a bit more leisurely pace. He suggested we start thinking about dinner, so I grabbed my phone and started looking up local restaurants. The Railside had received many positive reviews but at first we weren't... More

The Railside Restaurant was recommended to us by Port Hope residents while we were visiting for the IMSA sport car races July 9-11. The restaurant was very nice inside, with pretty lit candles in the centers of the tables. The menu contained a wide variety of foods. We chose grilled sirloin and salmon for entrees which were prepared perfectly. The... More

Googled eateries in Port Hope on our trip home from Montreal. What a pleasant surprise for such a small town. Unfortunately our eyes were bigger than our stomachs so after our appetizers of great calamari and French onion soup we had to take our entrees to go. Our server was so pleasant and accommodating that the next time we are... More

We had my sister inlaws Birthday, table of 10. I love the atmoshphere in the dining room but it could use a little more light for the elderly. We had to use the flashlight on our cell phone so my Father could view the menu. Our reservation was for 5:30pm and the special was prime rib which we were told... More

Quick lunches of the typical variety at the front of house. Gyros,burgers,blts etc great value for money. The dining room however is where the real major happens. Creative dishes, fresh ingredients generally awesome. Daily specials always worth a try.
