“Best Bang for your Buck”
Reviewed July 25, 2012 via mobile

I have been eating here for 15 years and the food is very consistent "tasty". Homemade soups, sauces, hamburgers nothing really per packed from frozen. I am from Calgary and the steaks are Alberta beef. Prime rib mouth watering.
If you want fine dining upstairs be sure to make a reservation as it gets very busy.
The staff are very friendly and knowledgable of the menus.
The atmosphere is comfortable for all occasions and very clean which is most important to me.
I would be had pressed to find fault with this Restaurant.

“Steady and Good”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

We eat here acouple of times a year and have yet to have any problems.
Food is consistantly good and fresh. Probably why it seems to be busy on a regular basis.

“SHOULD BE RATED HIGHER”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

I live here in Port Hope, and truly the place is a little dated but really if your all about taste portion and price than this is the place for you. everything is always fresh!!....have never had a bad thing on the menu,,, also very consistant....I stopped eating at Jims Pizzaria for this reason,it was a coin toss on a quality dinner.

“Good food but needs updating”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

Four of us went to a Stampeders concert in Port Hope and decided to try the Railside. The food was good but not exceptional and perhaps a bit pricey for the nature of the restaurant.
Three of us had the ribs and they were good. Well cooked and the barbeque sauce was above average. The fourth person had a burger and it was on the poor side. The restaurant needs some major updating in its decor. Dark and dingy with a terrible parking lot. On the plus side, although the meals were slow in arriving, the server was very friendly and efficient. Average is a good description.

“First class value for a midday stop; next trip we'll try dinner.”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

Lunch for 2 w/soup&coffee $22+tax. Outstanding value with attentive service. The lunch room (as opposed to the dining room for evening meals) is a bit of shopworn 1950s in its decor, though the booths provide excellent privacy. I have lunched at 9 different places between Bowmanville and Colborne. On service and value I'd rate Railside "best buy" for lunch.
