The menu selection at the Split Rail is somewhat limited, but there is a wide range from appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, to full entrees. Prices are not cheap, but the food was very good. I would consider it an upgraded pub menu with a good selection...More

Just traveling through after the QVC Studios. This was such a good find. A great local feel and the food was very good. Best burger I’ve had in a long time. Service was casual and good, my favorite kind.

We went for drinks only - the Moscow Mule and the Mimosa was delicious. I don't drink alcohol so the bartender created a lovely non alcoholic drink and did not charge for it. There is a karaoke night for those who want to try and...More

One of the more up scale bars in town, you won't find many (if any) college kids here. A little pricier, but the cocktails are on point, beer/wine selection long, and the food is incredible!

Awesome breakfast and brunch. Bartenders are very cool! Mimosa’s are a good price. Eggs, yogurt are very good. They use to make their own jam which was awesome. Some weekends they have live music. Thumbs up!

My husband and I love Split Rail! Many of the restaurant/bars in West Chester cater to the college crowd, but the patrons here tend to be late 20's and up, which we prefer. Great craft beer selection, delicious menu, good music and friendly staff. Highly...More

Went to the Split Rail Tavern last evening for the first time. I have to start off by saying that it's a busy place, so it's pretty noisy in there. I would not visit this venue if I wanted to have an intimate conversation with...More
