Located in an historic train depot, a beautifully renovated and clean restaurant hidden off the beaten track. Parking is available. Service is friendly and helpful. Food is outstanding. Best charcuterie tray we have ever had. The hand made sorbet was also outstanding. Take some time...More

All of my reviews are based on price and pretensions. Rails has moderate prices and substantial portions. Poutine was a lot of food for $5, but not remarkable. The mushroom, peas, and marsala sauce should be served on the side. It made my tourtiere mushy....More
