“Vintage Decor & Good Selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

We ate at the Freight House restaurant during our last visit to Ogdensburg, which is located in northern New York State. I discovered it online prior to our visit, as I was looking for a restaurant that included vegetarian selections. The building itself is the former train station, and which is reflected in both the indoor and outdoor decor. The decor, which includes model trains and photographs of vintage locomotives, is interesting and unique. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner, and includes a variety of selections. The lunch menu includes hot and cold sandwiches, and burgers, among other selections, including at least two selections for vegetarians (a garden burger, and a veggie wrap). We were there for lunch - the dinner menu varies from the lunch menu.

“Cheap Eats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

We came down from Ottawa on Saturday. I had googled restaurants on the Friday to see where we could eat in Ogdensburg. The Freight House was one of 7 restaurants that came up. I read all the reviews and decided we would go there for lunch on Saturday. The restaurant has a real charm to it and has lots of train memorabilia. The restaurant is very clean. We had a really nice lunch! The service was very good, the food was excellent and you can't beat the value for the money. We will definitely be back again. I would highy recommend. Peter from Ottawa

“Best in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2012

I frequently travel to Ogdensburg on business so I have eaten in many of the restaurants. The Freight House has so far been the best. The food is great and the atmosphere is very comfortable. I love the chicken parm with their homemade marinara sauce. Very reasonable prices.

“Wish I could say it was good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

Read the other reviews & hoped to have a nice dinner. It took over half an hour to get our dinners after ordering & the waitrss never came by to refill glasses or say anything about the long wait. The lasagne was awful, but chicken piccata tasted okay. The train decor is cute, but the dirty streaked glass display case was not. Don't think we would go back.
