Rail’s has undergone a new opening after all the old staff were let go. New menu good and new staff helpful. Great dirty Grey Goose martini! Started with generous romaine and blue cheese salad which we shared. I had a lovely steak and partner lobster and bacon mac’n cheese. Very good.

Personally after hearing terrible things, from a party of twelve, about the food, service and pricing never went to the restaurant. Not surprised it closed. Supposedly reopening soon same owner different staff. Normally when this happens its same old same old but maybe it will be different.

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!!

Upon arrival, they warned us they had only one cook and server on for the time being. We did have a reservation for 8...Anyways, it took 2 hours and 25 min from beginning to end. 1 hour just to get appetizers. Fortunately, the group of 8 was all friends so conversation made it go by at a decent rate. The apps were small and left more to be desired, but the meal and the dessert were well worth the wait. We will def be back again and will probably update to a 5 star review if the time wait is improved. It was awesome!

Great dinner at Rails - so glad we found this little spot!

Unassumingly set up in an old railway station, the ambiance is adorable. All of the appetizers and main courses were really high quality and delicious - we had lobster rangoon, pate chinois (shepherd's pie), pork and cornbread main course, harvest salad, lobster mac and cheese, and fish and chips for the kids - all truly excellent with unique flavours. Our desserts (fried ice cream and strawberry shortcake) were fine, but not outstanding. The service was great, and the wait staff even went out of the their way to find crayons way in the back of their storage area for the kids. Within walking distance of the Hilton hotel, and reasonable prices. Definitely a recommended local spot to try - we were quite impressed and we'll be back again. Thank you!
