Not overly impressed. My husbands burger was good. I had a chicken salad and it was very ok at best. The server was nice but came to our table way to many times. The sides were very small and we were told they were enough to share. Sadly just not impressed.

Hubby and I grabbed a burger before lunch. Delicious! I had a special burger made of lamb and beef. It was VERY good, but I did feel the small amount of toppings really didn't add anything to the 1/2 burger. Husband loved his burger and milkshake and we both enjoyed fries (large enough to split.). The Rail also offers a... More

Went for lunch with a group of 6, we were seated promptly and our waitress was polite, informative and attentive the whole duration of our stay. If you go during lunch ask for the lunch menu if they do not give it to you. A bit smaller portions with an accompanying cheaper price. Everyone got something different and everyone loved... More

I arrived in Akron from the UK, 5000 miles, 3 airports a taxi ride and a hire car experience later I found the Rail purely by accident but what a stroke of luck. I absolutely loved the burger. Best ever. Served rare it was tasty, juicy and amazing. I'll be back

Tasty and inventive burger combinations with outstanding service. Handmade milkshakes and interesting beer choices. Worthy of a stop while in Akron.

I stopped here for lunch with my family. The burger selection was very unique. I got a bruschetta burger, which was their burger of the month. The burger was very juicy. The spinach and bruschetta were delicious toppings. This would be a great burger to add to their regular menu! My mom is selective in the food she likes, but... More

We had lunch at The Rail. We were pleasantly surprised to see several luncheon specials at a very reasonable price. Weve always have had good food here and this time was no exception.
