Enjoyed the Steam-punk atmoshere

Didn't realize that the Railroad House had reopened till the receptionist at the always busy McLeary's (1 1/2 hour wait without reservation) told us about it. Pleasantly surprised to hear that the old building is alive again. Small bar room upon entry with option to sit at outside patio or in... read more

Our second visit to the Railroad House gave us the chance to take new friends. We were happy to meet Joey, a partner in the restaurant. Joey was skilled with explaining the cuisine and very personable, adding to our experience. Every suggestion he made was spot on and actually better than he described. One question we had on a side... More

Another old (built in 1840) building used as a restaurant that serves adjective food. Adjective food is that which appears on the menu that lists every ingredient on the plate. For example: smashed Idaho potato with warm, seasoned reduction of Spanish vintage sherry etc. etc. Each adjective costs several dollars. Forget the drink list. $8.00 for a cocktail in a... More

Joey B, Owner at Railroad House Inn, responded to this review

Dear Rocky- I wanted a chance to respond your review about our restaurant. We pride ourselves on using local and seasonal ingredients that are chemical free and treated humanely. The reason for the "adjectives" is because we want our customers to know where their food comes from and know that we support local business. The belief , that by knowing... More

The 6 of us had a great lunch last Sunday at the Railroad House Inn. The waitress knew her beers AND her food, impressed my sister-in-law, the professional chef. Loved the artichoke pizza. Cool decorations everywhere made from train cars as well.

This restaurant served us a great meal - three exceptional dishes and really good house wines by the glass - very accommodating with pleasant service and a beautiful garden outside to eat in

I cannot believe the quality ingredients and level of expertise put into the food at this charming, renovated inn. We ordered too much food. Everything was phenomenal. My personal favorite was the beet salad. The only disappointments were the fries and the braised short rib. I was too full to even eat them. I don't even know if the short... More

This is a new restaurant to the area which opened in January 2015. We visited in May and thoroughly enjoyed the bar area and the dining experience. We have visited Marietta for the past 3 years and this establishment was recommended by the innkeeper from the Ascot House Bed and Breakfast. We enjoyed appetizers on the outside patio the first...

We arrived near closing time for the kitchen but that was no problems. The food was delicious and service was excellent too by a very friendly waiter.

The food was fresh, wonderfully prepared and delicious! Because they use seasonally available food I can't say that what we enjoyed so much will be on the menu if you go, but do go! From the salads and soups to the entrees to the desserts, everyone in our party of 6 was delighted. The lamb loin was perfectly prepared, the... More
