Diner Reviews
  • "We had a very pleasant night out at the Rail House. We dined downstairs which we prefered because of the band upstairs so we could talk. After dinner we went to the upstairs fand enjoyed the music! Very good band and excellent bar service!"

  • "Made reservations 4-5 weeks in advance, 6 people upstairs bar/diningroom. On arrival, the hostess said that they do NOT take reservations for under 8 people, unless we wanted to eat downstairs. We came to have dinner & listen to the band. The manager was called, we were told we could sit right in front of the band's sound system, I do mean right in front of the speakers. Nasty. Three couples spent between $100 and $160 each, our service was excellent. We enjoyed the limited menu, the salmon was large and tasty, and the tenderloin medallions were tender and flavorful, hot bread, yum. As we look around the room, most of the tables were empty all night, we left at 11:30. Why did they make such a BAD impression at the door?"

  • "We dine here almost every week................sometimes twice a week. Great food at a fair price. Don't miss the prime rib on Tuesday."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "I think when we do reservation at a restaurant for party of 10 on line, then we call twice to confirm and give details about the sitting, then we come and no table is reserved , it s not serious and you can t count on that restaurant to invite people there coming from out of town. We were disappointed because we couldn't see or hear the singer from a back room.."

  • "Loved it! Will definitely go back. The service and food were wonderful."

  • "I was disappointed to see the 1st floor of the restaurant - the nicest part - closed. Only the 2nd floor, a much more casual area was open. There was a "singer" standing by a microphone and what seemed to be a keyboard, although it was just piped-in music. It was terrible! He couldn't hold a note and the background music was way off. It made a very surreal evening. The food - pasta with vegetable (chicken was an extra $6) was very bland & way over-priced. Having been there in the summer, I was expecting much more - not sure what's happened since then. I will say that the best part was the service. The waiter was very accessible but not overly attentive. We left a nice tip - no reason to blame him for bad management and kitchen."

  • "The fish and chips at The Rail House was top notch. Tasty fish, good batter and prepared well. The sweet potato fries were excellent as were the onion straws. Excellent and attentive service."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed dinner at the Rail House, and especially enjoyed the live entertainment... Group called the Blues Merchants was excellent...We stayed through the first set which lasted about an hour and a half...We were never pushed by our waiter to buy more drinks or to take the check... Very nice and relaxing evening...Will definitely go back..."

  • "Really surprised by the whole experience. Patrick, our server was GREAT! He knew his menu as well as drinks and had some great recommendations! The dessert was over the top. We are really excited to try the different weekday specials like Pint Nite and Wine on a Dime."

  • "Service was great after we finally got someone to wait on us."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Waiter, Dustin, was fantastic. Valentines Special good value, but Lobster tail was overcooked and baked potato under cooked. Everything else was superb and more than made up for it. Great atmosphere and overall ambience in downstairs dining area."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We enjoyed the setting in the old Iron Horse restaurant in Glendale. Nice bar. Service was attentive, although my husband did not get his water refilled without asking. We also had to ask for bread. Food was good tasting, although a tad boring."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I booked the reservation based on the menu selections listed online. We were seated upstairs at 6:00. When the band started at 7:00, our conversation basically stopped because we couldn't hear each other. There was seating on the main floor but we weren't given the option. I never thought that our 6:00 reservation would be so loud. The band did sound great but that wasn't the reason we ate there. Everything else about our meal was good. The waiter gave us good recommendations for food and wine. The food was delicious and the service was good. I would go back but would definitely request seating on the first floor unless I was going just to hear the music."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We love this place, been there 4-5 times now, but this Saturday night after Valentine's Day was out of control. Reservations were meaningless, apparently, and while the hostess told us they were under-staffed, the Manager said that was not the case. Food was great as always, and Jimmy our waiter did an outstanding job. The band needs to turn the volume down a notch when in such a small space, those speakers MUST have volume control! We like the music, and like to dance, but also like to talk with our friends who came with us. Not saying turn it OFF, just turn it down!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Went on valentines day and was looking for a romantic experience, music was WAY to loud. Food was good but waiter lacked detail to attention. Table was full of dirty dishes, he never cleared them until the very end. I have been there before and would recommend for the delicious food"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The main dish was very good and cooked well. The sides were lacking a little flavor especially the horseradish mash potatoes. They were out of a few of the beers I asked for but they have a large selection so I was able to find something I liked. The wine selection was adequate as well. The restaurant was a little noisy when we were there on a Sat. night though they had a country band playing upstairs. We did not mind this but some people may if they are looking for a quiet dinner. Overall I would definitely go back and we enjoyed the overall experience."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We ate upstairs in the bar so we could hear the band. It was PACKED, and service was SUPER SUPER slow. They were understaffed for the crowd they had. Took over an hour to get a drink served. The food was average to below average. The band was good, so at least there was good entertainment."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "I love this place. Dont know why it took me so long to get over there!"
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "Good place for a nice date night. Food and drinks were good. Appetizers came quick. Main course was presentable. Dessert was good but I feel like they pre-slice things so the food starts to take on the taste of the refrigerator, and some liquid from the icing separating on the plate tells me it was in there over a day...that part could have been better. Overall I would return, more so for the lunch menu because they didn't offer any of that food for dinner nor on the weekends!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "The food was OK - nothing special and not much to choose from. The service was very slow. Will probably not return."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "overall the service was excellent and attentive. Food quality & portions were just right."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Arrived @ just before 9pm reservation New Year's Eve. No one at the desk to seat us for several minutes. Not really crowded. About 10:45 decided to leave .... still did not have the main course and still 2 tables of 10 "upstairs" ahead of the two of us!!!! The kitchen could not handle a less-than-full-house!!!!!! Too bad .... it was our first time there!"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Food was very good. Loved the crusted salmon. Service was excellent thanks to our server Dustin-well done! The trains passed by, that was an added treat. The place has a cozy feeling."

  • "Wanting to eat near West Chester, went to the Rail House because Jags wasn't open the day after Christmas, should have gone to Pappadeaux instead. The previous iteration of Rail House (the Iron Horse) had some nice web reviews and fresh food including mesclun salad, in-house baked bread; this is not that restaurant. They only had the upstairs restaurant open. One large room, very echo-y, bare windows, too noisy to hear conversation. 4 people, $200. Overpriced for the quality of food. Not one of the 4 of us said the main meal was good. Lobster mac and cheese was truly awful, a regular mac and cheese with a small overcooked lobster tail (in its shell) placed on top. Salmon, recommended by waiter, wasn't very flavorful. We won't return."
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "went for Christmas Eve Dinner. Seating was in the upstairs Bracken pub room. A perfectly fine room for drinks and bar food while watching one of the 6 televisions going but, for the families trying to enjoy Christmas eve dinner and conversation, it didn't work. Along with the live musician, who was good it, created a completely distracting environment. When the Manager was asked if he could turn the TV's off he replied that "No, people would be coming in for beer and football". Given that most of the dinners were priced in the 25-35dollar range it looks as though it is a place in identity crisis. And also when we left at 9pm there was only one other table occupied in the restaurant and no one was watching the sports reruns on the 6 TV,s."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "We were there on Christmas Evening, so they were short on wait staff. We have no complaints. Just glad they were open, so we could have dinner with friends."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "It was a crowd pleaser. Everyone was happy with their selection. The bourbon steak was good as was the prime rib. The beer selection was a little weak. While our server was great - (REX!) the food took forever to come out. That's not on Rex - that's on the kitchen. The host was good. The entertainment was good - nice guy playing his guitar and taking requests. We might go back in the summer when the patio is open and we can sit outside. We'll be back."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "the food was very good and the service was also good"
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "Food was very good as always. Will keep coming back. Place was very busy and service was still very good. Only problem was parking. Had hard time finding a place to park. Had to park up the street on Sharon Road."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "After 35 minutes we had no water, no drinks and had yet to place our order so we left. The sound level from the single musician was such that there could be no conversation among our party. The waiter likewise was unable to communicate without getting "overly close, head to head). For the 1/2 price wine promotion we were told they sold out of all of the wines except one which was a red and no whites were available. After insistence on our part the waiter finally went to speak to someone and came back with two other alternative wines for the promotion. He then left and we did not see him again until we passed him on the way out. After 35 minutes we had no water, no drinks and had yet to place our food order so we left to eat elsewhere."

  • "Good food. Great service. Will return to this one although a bit of a drive for us."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Not at all what we expected. We wanted a quiet holiday dinner. Instead we had a fairly loud band preventing us from engaging in quiet dinner conversation."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Went on a Tuesday night for our anniversary. Great place. They were very busy for a Tuesday night, so the service was a little slow. I think they had a couple big parties. But they were still very very friendly and accommodating. Food was excellent. I will go there again."
    Dined on 12/10/2013
  • "The Rail House should be embarrassed to even be open. As soon as we arrived we were told that there were no tables available for upstairs dining. I called and made the reservation with another couple so we could dine and listen to the band upstairs. The menu selection for dinner is very limited,with maybe four hot dinner entrees. The food took forever to arrive. Our reservation was at 6:45 and our dinner did not arrive to our table till well after 8:00. I ordered the shrimp Po Boy sandwich. The breaded shrimp was soggy and mushy. One of our guest ordered the hamburger sliders. The beef patty was the size of a small sausage patty and cooked beyond recognition. The noise level was unbelievably loud. We definitely will not be back!"
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "The Railhouse had great ambience and music! It has a good wine list and beer selection. The food and service were average."
    Dined on 11/24/2013
  • "We had a group of six. Each steak provided in the group was very tough for a median to rare cooked steak. The mashed potatoes had barely any taste. Other then that everything was great! We liked the band and the rustic style of the restaurant."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "This was a great choice for a lunch get-together with an old friend I hadn't seen for a while. Made a reservation for late lunch 1:00pm and that was perfect. Not rushed, plenty of time to visit and chat, good food, good service, perfect choice!"
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "The place has potential, but needs to execute. We had a party of six, some of the meals were not hot when delivered to the table and one meal didn't come until everyone else was finished. Ordered desert and they forgot until one member of the party tracked down the waiter after 20 minutes and asked for the check."
