Thank you for taking advantage of our carry out! We do offer "typical bar fare" on our menu and also so much more. We hope you will try some of our specialty sandwiches, wood fired pizzas, pastas, burgers or dinner entrees when you are back in town. Thanks again! More

Stopped for lunch after reading reviews on tripadvisor and am glad we did! My husband tried one of the specials - Bohemian Burger (smoked gouda cheese, bacon, pesto mayo, spinach and turkey) and I tried the another special - Walleye Po' Boy sandwich, which was made with Walleye fritters.

Love the food and service. Both are excellent. Especially enjoyed the grilled chicken Caesar pizza. Only complaint is the noise. Too many hard surfaces and high industrial ceiling cause reverberations. Difficult to have a conversation.

This is the second time that we've eaten at the Railhouse, and again it was delicious. The waiter was also extremely friendly and efficient. The next time we're in Lake City, I'm sure we'll stop again!! Yum!

This restaurant is far above average for sure. You must eat here if you are in Lake City. It was so good that we went back for breakfast the next morning. Charming atmosphere, very friendly wait staff, and the food was fantastic.

Visited for lunch after hang gliding and had a great meal to top off a great adventure in Lake City. Had the Prarie Fire Grilled Chicken sandwich and I loved it! Nice healthy offering which I appreciated. Great customer service, very friendly. Food came pretty quickly and our server offered refills on drinks before we had to ask. Definitely recommend!

This is a great place for casual dining in Lake City. We enjoy fresh food and this is a local owner. They have great pizza, sandwiches and salads. They are prompt, the restaurant is clean and they do have a small area outdoors to eat when the weather permits.

Very accommodating staff, and all around excellent food. I've made several visits to the area in the last couple weeks and have yet to be disappointed trying several different items on the menu. The pizza is very impressive and the battered french fries are amazing.

Thank Michael J
