20 railroad public house is a nice place for lunch or dinner. They have salads sandwiches and burgers. For dinner they have a nice selection of specials. And their ingredients are all sourced from local farms. Being a public house means they have a full bar. The service was good for a Saturday night. Go and enjoy the food.

The menu online was small but looked great. We went for lunch and I had my heart set on the Tuna salad but they told me they didn't have (it was on the menu online but not in the restaurant). We decided to leave since they were also out of the black bean burger which is what my friend wanted.... More

We were at a restaurant rather early but still had to wait, for which a service and for her food to be brought out. Husband had cheeseburger which said was really good, friend had black bean burger which he said was very spicy. I had kale salad which was just a bunch of kale thrown a plate with some dressing,...

Expensive yes, but amazing. You get an authentic experience from the Delicious food to the decor and atmosphere. The owners are born and raised in Greece and really great people. They don't just own it, they work there too. He's the head chef and his wife hosts and helps wait tables. They take a lot of pride in their place.... More

When we arrived it took the host about 10 minutes to seat us, there was only one group in front of us (group of three). Then about 5-10 minutes until someone brought us water and they didn't even say a word to us just placed the water on the table. Then another 5 minutes until our waitress came over and... More

We used to go to 20 Railroad and were really happy when it reopened so we decided to give it a go this Saturday. First I was very surprised to see it half empty on at 7 PM on a summer Saturday night, the line used to be down the alley. I now understand why: 1- Beer selection very small,... More

...because we were hoping for so much more. The restaurant was purchased by someone who currently owns another restaurant in Lenox. That other restaurant as many friends said, had many things lacking as well. It seems they have brought that to 20 Railroad and rather than any improvement it has lowered the quality and service yet farther. One particular disappointment... More
