Since moving a town over, I had always heard what wonderful the Old Rail had, particuarly the pizza. My husband and I decided to start going there, and people were right- the menu and food are literally, outstanding.
The pizza is on a thin crust, lots of cheese, actually reminds me very slightly of Manco's (the old Mac-n-Manco's) from Ocean City, NJ. We usually would order a tossed salad with it, which was again, fresh and always outstanding.
What's not outstanding is the lousy service, which we experienced 9 times out of 10. You can almost bet, that your service will be lousy; sure the place is small, but if it has 15 tables total, and the servers also serve the bar patrons food- how can you expect the one or MAYBE two girls on, to give good service? They don't.
In fact, the veteran servers are pleasant enough and you can tell they are working hard to keep up. The new, younger girls that they bring in are awful. Food with an attitude to say the least. They are stressed and boy does it show!
My husband and I last went there, and left, this past August. We walked in, the place was close to empty as it was the end of summer vacation season. A new waiteress was struggeling with her three tables and the bar, and she was miserable. We sat, and sat, and sat. After the fifth time she walked pass us, we just left.
However, I can't hold a grudge against such wonderful food. Takeout from the Old Rail is our solution once in a while!
