New high quality craft beers all of the time. Great service. Friendly bartenders. Excellent atmosphere & location. Every beer on tap is shown side by side with their beer advocate rating & abv. I went on vinyl night and the music was great.

My husband & I stayed a night for our anniversary and were greeted by Tracy, one of the owners.We were given a tour of the hotel and shown to our room. It is beautifully restored and has a wonderful history to go with it. The room was tiny (compared to hotel room), but definitely enough room for my husband &... More

When I read this review I was quite shocked and disappointed. I honestly don't recall it and really have no words other than I'm sorry and I would hope that perhaps you would return to see how things have improved. We closed down in March of 2012 after being flooded as you mentioned. As of Feb 2015, the restaurant and... More

My friends and I stayed in the "summer kitchen" at the Railroad House Inn in Marietta Pa. for 10 days in October. The place is charming and the owners Eric and Tracey treated us like family. The bar is cozy and usually full of friendly locals, the food is excellent and served in the bar or the large dinning area.... More

A friend an I went to the Railroad House for a girl's night out - it was great! The room was small but clean and very comfortable. You'll have to be prepared for the noise of the train and the music from the downstairs tavern, but we were able to sleep very well. The restaurant was awesome - I had... More

My husband and I visited the Railroad House to celebrate his birthday. Eric and Tracy are excellent hosts: warm hospitality, very nice and friendly, and they made us feel at home.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Railroad House Inn this past weekend. I was in the area for a family event and my sister and I decided to stay here instead of the hotel the event was taking place in. It turned out to be an excellent decision. We arrived at Railroad House fairly late in the evening... More
