Food was great but this restaurant is so very noisy. Been there three times and the same issue; you can hardly hear people speaking at your own table. The owners should place some acoustical panels on the high ceilings or something!

A bit on the expensive side, however, quality and service seems very good. Shrimp looked like they came from the tin and was disapointing. Strange management. Closed down between Christmas and New Year. Strange for a restaurant concern.

Went to the Railside once, I had a seafood pasta dish and the shrimp were tiny from the tin, just awful. Won't go back, not memorable, too many other choices in Port Hope and Cobourg.

We heard really great things about this restaurant from local people. I found it dated and in need of TLC. Food was average, service ok. I was disappointed.

Not open on Monday. Great staff. Stop in for a step away from the frantic pace of Christmas Shopping. Starts like a cafeteria but staff deliver food and extras.
