Steak special every Tuesday, $13.99, side salad for $2.00.....AMAZING!!!!! Why buy steak, when you get an excellent steak served to you. Great value at Railside Restaurant.

We took our mom here for lunch today. Had no idea about the place other than online reviews said food was great and the menu looked extensive. Upon arrival we were a little surprised at the understated establishment but learned that only the quick service side was open until 4:30 which is when the main dining room would open. Decided...

This is the place we go to celebrate a birthday or to enjoy a lovely meal. The food is quite wonderful and the staff treat you like family. On the weekends they serve the best prime rib in 5 counties...you will not be disappointed.

Lovely, cozy feeling lighting perfect. Went with 4 couple had appetizers fast with drinks then dinner. We certainly weren't rushed but attended to. Dinner was excellent we weren't waiting comfort area for our big group and there is another area where you could just sit at the bar and eat if you so desired

A lovely family dinner. I had angel-hair stirfry with bacon-wrapped scallops, Merlot, and almond cheese cake. The rest of the family were equally satisfied. Tip: make your reservation the day before the dinner -- by the time we got around to it they were fully booked for the time we preferred (no problem, we went a little earlier.)

If you're just going for a quick bite then the food is actually pretty good (the downstairs fast food style area) but I was quite disappointed with the upper level dining experience. The food was not worth the price.

After a day of fishing, a warm meal and at a great price. Menu is on the board and it's made in minutes. Service was awesome! Nice to have a good restaurant so close to the pier and river.
