The added bar along with great new menu and local craft beers have really improved this restaurant! Even the service has improved 100%. Couldn’t believe how quickly our entrees arrived. And, the prices are extremely reasonable. Rails has really hit its stride. Congratulations!!

This was our 2nd visit. 1st was good but not this one. One poor waitress was desperately trying to handle the whole crowd. Waited over 45 minutes and food arrived cold. No real explanation.

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
