Good breakfast and great service. Interesting take on eggs benedict with southern style gravy that I enjoyed. Worth the stop.

The Railhead has new management with a new Executive Chef for 2015. What a difference! Last year the food was horrible so this is a big change. Nice simple menu with good selections. My meal was great. The new Chef came out and introduced himself...More

The only good thing about this visit was a friendly waiter. The food was salty and gross, canned, heated-up slop. The salad bar was chintzy and the lettuce was white. Like what's the point of a salad like this? The Railhouse has a prominent corner...More

Greeted at the door with ambivalence. Got iced tea which tastes like it was instant or stale. My grilled chicken sandwich was tough. Hard to cut with a knife and impossible to eat as a sandwich. Meager tomato slice was almost white, not red. Special...More
