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.

I am always skeptical of "Mall" restaurants, but this one defies logic. It's a great place to meet friends , the staff is fantastic and the food is great. There was an mixup with our order and they were happy to correct. It's a great local restaurant (Ohio) good atmosphere and menu selection.

The food was fantastic! The first time here, and we took the advice of the manager Brian and had the Truffle fries, made our mouths very happy, the burgers are so amazing it's hard to describe, the service was fantastic, we will be back when we travel to Akron again. You have to stop, you won't be disappointed, promise!

Stopped in for an early dinner and sat at the bar. The bartender was very pleasant and very efficient. I took a suggestion on the menu and ordered accordingly. The food was very good and really enjoyed it. After seeing review I thought it was going to be a little bit more expensive but it was very reasonable. I did... More

Positive energy reigns in this eatery! I liked the red & black decor. The Bison Burger and Buckeye Pie were delicious! We went back for a second meal. Easy parking and just a stroll away from places to shop.

We love this place. It's always delicious. Everything here is good. (Burgers, other sandwiches, sides, beer, etc.) You should definitely make a stop here.

I love this burger and had relatives from ATL visiting w/a very fussy/picker eater (an adult) and after eating his burger (a naked one, so nothing to conflict w/just the burger taste, he declared: "This burger is the best I've ever eaten, even my own." Pretty resounding affirmation!

Went to eat here for a business lunch. Awesome atmosphere...industrial meets steampunk meets sports bar. Very cool vibe. Definitely delicious burgers! Some of the best in the Canton/Akron area. Lots of options for your dining pleasure. Can't wait to go back again and again for lunch and dinner.
