More than ok. Less than great.

I would have to say we had a pleasant enough visit here. The service was friendly and good. The food was good but not great. I wouldn't hesitate to return but will not be craving a visit.

Stopped for lunch during the week. Had one of many choices of burgers with fries. It was very good. While inside gives you a nice hometown bar feel several blocks surrounding were not so inviting. There was a small outside deck which looks like a great place to hang out with friends and inside with a nice oak back bar... More

Stopped here for lunch and it was tasty ! Had a yummy crab pretzel dip to start. And we shared a burger. It was soooo yummy. The waitress must have heard us talking about splitting it because she brought the burger out cut in half on two plates with half the fries on each. Super nice gesture that was above... More

We have been to Union Station a handful of times recently. The service was outstanding. The environment was classic pub/neighborhood bar, exactly the type of place we were looking for. I have had the wings, the crab cake sandwich and seen a variety of other salads and food there. It has all been outstanding. I highly recommend heading down to... More

This establishment had good food, plenty of different alcohol or beer types but pricing is a bit high. There is a small outdoor patio that sits off the street and is usually packed on the weekends. If you can stand a higher price, it's worth a try.

Perhaps I just had a disinterested bartender on a Sunday night in which she couldn't make money.... She talked about this openly to another staff member and someone I presume to be a regular. Then she does the shortchange on the change after I pay the bill and did not return the bill to me.... I'm not sure when this... More

We stopped in after visiting the Turkey Hill Experience and enjoyed a relaxed and tasty dinner. My son really like the kids' pizza and my fish and chips were excellent. The beer selection is good, although a little pricey, and the ambiance is unique.

We had the opportunity to eat at Union Station Grill for dinner after the Turkey Hill Experience. It was the perfect location as it was right down the road and had a kids menu with burgers, pizza, chicken fingers, etc., all the stuff that kids love to eat. I had a great burger (the steak burger) with beer battered fries.... More

This bar/restaurant is like the one on "Cheers". This is my go to place. Very good food, great service, reasonable prices, what more could you ask for? They have specials throughout the week. My favorites are Tuesday for steak and shrimp and Thursday for burgers. On Friday and Saturday after 6;00 they have a special menu. My family and i... More
