If you're ever traveling along M32 West from Gaylord this is a must stop destination. They're food is simply the best and the wait staff is equally as good. I haven't been able to find anything on the menu that I didn't like. Some of our family favorites include their pizza, fresh mushroom soup, potato burger and fish fry on... More

People don't go TO Elmira, Michigan. They go THROUGH it on the way to someplace else in Michigan's north. But the Railside Bar and Grill is one good reason why Elmira could be a destination place! It may look like a typical up-north bar but the good is anything but typical, especially the terrific Polish offerings. I had the pierogies... More

Stopped in after a round of golf, and after acouple drinks and watching the food go by, we decided to stay put and eat. The pizza was outstanding - homemade crust and fresh generous toppings... Sausage mushroom, extra cheese, pepperoni... Fresh and flavorful. The blue gill fresh fish was outstanding! Good size portions but lightly breaded- I highly recommend the... More

We were in search of a good burger and decided to give this place a try. The burgers were among the best that we have had in Northern Michigan and the fries were FRESH CUT. We will certainly be back for an evening burger.

We found this little restaurant in Elmira when we had to travel to Traverse City for doctor appointments. This is a nice bar and restaurant with good Polish food available. My favorites are the Polish sampler dinner, Polish nachos and the chicken salad wrap sandwich. The french fries and home made potato chips are to die for.

DH had the kielbasa and kraut and I had the polish nachos. The kielbasa and kraut were good, not fabulous but good. A generous portion The polish nachos were interesting. It... More

We were driving thru Elmira on our way to Boyne and stopped here to eat. Our son got the potato burger and just loved it. The burgers are large and very filling. I had the Jack Burger that was great and the hubby said he had the best wet burrito he had anywhere. The waitress was great and the prices... More

I eat here all the time! It's very good and has excellent service! Everyone is extremely nice. I personally love the fish and the burgers. I would recommend to anyone wondering if it was good! The Railside's wings are very good also, very meaty!
