Our party of 6 ordered three steak dishes and three other entrees. Two of the steak dishes were supposedly filets and ordered medium-rare. What we got was very chewy and at best, cooked medium, if not medium well.
My wife wasted no time summoning the waitress who was very apologetic and immediately offered to cook a new steak for both of us. The second time around was very good and to the waitress' credit, she waited until we had taken our first bite to ensure our satisfaction.
That was the worst we could say about the Railside. Overall, a variety of appetizers all were served hot and tasted good. Others in our party raved about the spare-ribs; I think I'll order those next time because they did look good.
Nice selection of local craft ales and pretty good (and affordable) wine list to accompany the meal.
Finally, the desserts were large and definitely share-able. I think something called the Tiger Cake was a big hit, so big that some of it came home!
All in all, a nice place for a family or place to celebrate and event. A little more care in the kitchen to complement the service and this place would be one of the top 5 restaurants in the Cobourg/Port Hope area.
