We went here on the recommendation of Pam from the B.F. Hiestand House Bed & Breakfast. My wife and I were staying there for our anniversary. Fantastic recommendation. The building itself is awesome and the food is fantastic. I had the pork belly and a cup of white chicken chili. My wife had the flat iron steak. Everything was really... More

Although out of the way, this restaurant is well worth the drive! My salmon was perfect, the wine very reasonable and the decor was charming. One of the managers gave us a little tour and pointed out all the historical details and shared the story of the inn. A truly wonderful night!

Four of us had dinner here and were very pleased. Great beer selection and a decent wine selection. The bourbon glazed salmon was very good. Crab cakes were just so-so. A little light on the crab meat but seasoned well. Very good service. Make sure to request a tour of the place.

We were seated in a wonderfully decorated industrial looking space but a nearby table had very loud, obnoxiuos guests which greatly interfered in our dining experience. Before ordering we asked to be reseated to a more quiet space to which the staff graciously accommodated our request. Another nearby table also made a similar request and they too were reseated.

This place is so cool (literally & figuratively)! If you are going to hang out in the Perry St. Cellar make sure you bring a jacket/coat/snuggie... it's chilly! There are no windows and it's all exposed underground - so cool and the bartender was awesome! Great craft beer selection too! The poutine fries were amazing! We also had the waterford... More

I have been here to enjoy the excellent selection of beers. Stopped in for brunch on Sunday. The pork poutine was great and , as always, the beer was wonderful.

This restaurant was recommended to us as we had not been in this area before. Each of the components of our meals were unique and superb. All I could say was, "Wow". The atmosphere was warm and comfortable. I would highly recommended and my wife and I look forward to returning-soon. Excellent wait staff as well.

We had a delicious meal and service was great. I had the Salmon which was done to perfection, my husband had surf and turf and said it was perfect. We highly recommend Railroad House for a delicious meal.

We had our company office Christmas party here (a bit late but finally). We had a party of 12 and they gave us our own room that was just awesome.
