“Friendly place to chill in South Minneapolis.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

The Rail Station is a come as you are, home cooked experience. The French Onion soup and the deep fried mushrooms are PHENOMINAL. They make all their sauces from scratch, blue cheese and ranch can not be beat. All their apps are done to perfection. Vikings games are way fun, as is karaoke and trivia. Basically, you can't go wrong when you choose to go to the rail.

“Comfortable, Laid Back, Friendly Neighborhood Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2010

This is a friendly and comfortable neighborhood bar. The inside is clean and simple. We did not use it but it looked like there is a great patio area. The staff was friendly. There was a great crowd of friendly people watching the NCAA basketball championship on the night we were there. I loved the laid back atmosphere

I have heard that karaoke nights are popular and fun at this location as well.

The had $3 domestic drafts and rail drinks on special. I got the Grown Up Grilled Cheese (american and provolone cheese) and fries and really enjoyed it ($5.50 plus extra for the fries since I didn't want chips). My boyfriend got a burger and enjoyed that as well.

This is definitely going to be a favorite bar in the area for a laid back time.
