“Basque Restaurant says the sign”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

We ate dinner at the Brass Rail tonight, after having it recommended by a friend. The food was okay, served family style to your table, with unlimited wine, but it was not our favorite Basque dining experience.
Yes, the decor is dated.
The service needed more help. The one server was serving the entire dining room, and was "flying". She was a sweetie, but rushed so much it made us feel rushed.

“Best Dinner in Alturas”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

One word, ok maybe two, lamb chops. If you can't get the chops then rib steak. Yes the decor is dated, but the wait staff is great, as is the lamb. Side dishes change nightly, but the ravioli and stew are the best in my book. The fare is simple yet good and served family style.
