We visited with friends recently and were extremely pleased. The staff was friendly and very attentive. The building was historic and charming. The best if all was the food. It was so flavorful and delicious. I would highly recommend!

I've been here over two dozen times and have never had a bad bite of food. From appetizers to burgers to entrees- delicious. Never had bad service, and the atmosphere is very relaxing. I recommend this place to everyone within earshot. High fives to all of the staff for providing an excellent experience!

We were riding the rail trail along the susquehanna and stopped in for lunch. The building and grounds are awesome. The farm to table items were unique and the presentation of the food and test were excellent!

Second visit to this restaurant in this century. Farm to table with local beverages. Disappointed in the corn in the crab and corn soup. Not fresh nor local. This is the beginning of sweet corn season in central Pennsylvania and it would have been so much tastier with the local sweet corn. Crab cakes are delicious.

The pictures on Yelp are what made us decide to try the Railroad House Inn. We were not disappointed. What a beautiful space. It has a quaint little courtyard to dine alfresco. We opted to sit inside and we couldn't have been more pleased with the booth they sat us at. The staff was friendly & attentive offering us advice... More

First time visit was great! Thought we were just going to an old restaurant for a light dinner. We were surprised by the decor, excellent food and cordial service. We first noticed the hostess desk was made of pipes and faucet knobs - so cool. The decor was dark but inviting and well done! You have to see it to... More

We had dinner there one chilly evening in late winter. Really nice cozy bar...some locals and very friendly. We went through to the dining room for dinner and it was lovely! We had a comfortab;le table opposite a fireplace in an original structure with plenty of the old, original photos and icons on the wall so the atmosphere was perfect!.... More

We had three couples eat dinner in the former kitchen with the large walk-in fireplace. The food was excellent and the night was made by our waiter, Ed!! The bourbon glazed salmon was great right down to the lavender Creme brûlée. We couldn't have found a better place to bring out of town guests. Hats off to you!

Went to dinner on a Friday night after hearing good things about this restaurant. First, the decor. As soon as we walked in we were almost giddy with excitement from the feeling of restaurant. The attention that went into the details (light fixtures, fabrics, decorations, etc) really shows. Spoiler Alert: there is a downstairs bar and pool table that is... More
