Nothing special, but fairly good simple food. Frankly, the food in Seward is pretty bad and so the Railway Cantina stands out. The food is fairly fresh and the service is fast.

This is a very small place, perfect for a fast lunch. I used to go here for the halibut tacos years ago, it was great to see the "new to me" owner still offers them. I loved it. Ignore other critics who complain about the...More

We stopped in here for a quick bite. We had been eating out for almost 2 weeks and were growing tired of seafood, burgers and pizza. Mexican food is our favorite. Being from Texas, we are used to great Mexican food and we've learned to...More

Wanted something quick before an excursion. This was recommended by locals. Lots of choices. Fairly priced, especially for Seward. Many sauce levels. Would return.

We ate here after our cruise. The food was terrible! The bean and cheese burrito was dry and I could hardly find the cheese! It came with nachos but the salsa was an extra charge. It was also very expensive for what is was. I...More

Apparently telling you not to order from the kids menu was not clear enough. If some one gives you advice like that in the future I suggest you take it.

This place is awesome, pick you time because it can get busy at lunch. Well worth the wait, large portions and great options. I got the blackened Halibut burrito, it was fantastic. You get salsa hot level choices, be careful =) We have been coming...More

Pretty darn good tacos. I've had the Halibut and steak. Wish they would change the tortilla chips though. Tastes like a cheap bag brand. Recommend deep frying your own corn tortillas. I do at home and it's so much better. Aloha salsa is my favorite...More

Average place. I was expecting more but the steak burrito was good but pricey. Overall I would eat here again. I stopped here on Memorial Day after doing an all day cruise with Major Marine Tours.

Everything was handmade which was nice, but my kids and I weren't thrilled with the flavors and options. The building itself was a little rundown but the decor was fun.
