We stopped in for lunch in this picturesque town. The food was good and the atmosphere friendly. The food was prepared to our liking and the service was excellent. If you are driving through, it is definitely worth a stop.

My coworker and I found this place on accident when driving by. The exterior train stop atmosphere caught our eye and we stopped. The inside has seating that displays an array of train nick nacks. A small train set runs along a track around the dining room and bar. We got there at 7:35 pm and they were closing at... More

Having been to ogdensburg multiple times, we decided to finally eat here. The food sounded fancy and tasted good, but I wasn't super impressed. The best part was the atmosphere in an old train depot near the water. The kids loved the trains, I really liked the concept.

Our family of 9 arrive 15 minutes before closing and they could not have been nicer to us. Charming Railroad Motif. Food was good and very reasonably priced. We had a great time.

Chose this restaurant to take my family out for Mother's Day weekend. My 4 year old son loves trains! He was not disappointed! The food was excellent(highly recommend their smoked foods like ribs). The service was great and the decor was awesome with 2 mini trains going around the ceiling and another one at the bar area. The owner was... More

Nice place to eat, food was good, prices reasonable and the staff was very friendly. A couple members of our party ordered burgers, and they were HUGE. The restaurant has a train motif, including mechanical trains running overhead.

Most every restaurant has at least one saving grace. Not so with The Freight House. We had reservations for a party of 17, so it's not as if they weren't expecting us. We were situated in a separate non-descript room at approximately 6:30. Three or four people ordered appetizers, so that wasn't very time-consuming. To make a long story short,... More

Stopped here for supper. Hadn't been in years and it was quite good when we went a few years ago. Food was good this time, nothing great. Quesadilla was likely cooked a little took long, was over crispy and hard to cut into pieces. Waitress was super polite and attentive. Will likely return to try other things on the menu.

We were disappointed that the lunch menu only had salads and sandwiches and I wish the menu would have mentioned that soup was available - I noticed it on my way out!! I fussed to my husband that the server could have said “our soup of the day is _____”. Regardless, the grilled cheese and tomato sandwich I had was... More

This place has changed hands quite a few times over the past 30 years or so and I hadn't been in this incarnation yet. In the past month, I've been here twice now. I have been very impressed both times with the service, food, and decor. The place itself is big, with nice seating and nice views and it has... More
