“Prime Rib Not so Prime”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

My wife and I plus another couple dined at the Freight House on Friday, October 5th. We all chose the Prime Rib as our entree. The meat was extremely fatty and tough. This was not a U.S. Choice or Prime cut of meat. We were all very disappointed with our meal and will not be returning. As the prices have increased since our last visit, we expectedd at least the same quality of food. This was not the case.

“Great Time”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

We were there with a large party. Restaurant was very accommodating. Although we had such a large group, service and food was great.

“Great food, can be hard to hear”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

The Freight House has great food, and is a good place for a special night out. However, the downstairs dining room has a high ceiling, and it can be very noisy & difficult to hear. I much prefer the upstairs dining room, but it doesn't seem to always be open.

“5 Stars Restaurant”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Great Food. Antique place with Unique design. The reception is excellent. I went with friends there and we had a great dinner in a apparently freight-looking place with train, train station around.
The atmosphere is very unique and memorable!
The food was 10/10
