Awesome!

The food was unique and uber tasty. I had the Veal Porterhouse and I didn't even need a knife. My wife had the mussels and she loved it.

This is a fantastic place to take that very special person in your life! The food was presented beautifully and it was as delicious as it looked! The service was timed perfectly and with the cozy ambience of this restaurant it made our Valentines dinner the most memorable ever!

This was this restaurant's 1st Friday night since re-opening under new ownership. We were quite impressed. Friendly wait staff. Scallops...large, tender, and delicious. Veal Porterhouse Steak...amazing...tender, thick and succulent. Great decor/atmosphere as well in a beautiful historic old inn.

I received an email from McCleary's announcing the Railroad House Inn was open again and we decided to try last night. Apparently the restaurant had been opened a little over a week so we expected some hiccups as they worked out the bugs. We had reservations for 6:30 and we were seated right away. The place was fairly busy and... More

What a shame this lovely building no longer houses a restaurant. I can't imagine what happened. The renovations were well done and the cuisine quite appealing.

Slowest service ever, and the wait was not worth it. I don't recommend this place

Although they weren't open for dinner, the bar keep was very helpful with local area suggestions to dine at.

I had written a review a while ago based on a negative experience. Since then I have been back twice with different people. I must say that my recent experiences have been awesome. I've tried the duck risoto, french onion soup, and a a very tasty smoked pork chop saltambucca. Their desserts are good too. I highly recommend the Railroad... More

This is a nifty joint with interesting history. Don't let the outside signs fool you: as authentic to the era as they seem, they really are meant to direct you into the correct entrance. (When you go, you'll see what I mean.) Service was very good. All staff were friendly and easy to talk with. The average age of diners... More
