All we had was delicious. I had the marinated skirt steak which was cooked just right and my wife had the pine nut encrusted tilapia which was delicious. Overall we had a great dinner for a fair price.

Pleasantly surprised by this little restaurant. The staff was very courteous and attentive, the food was delicious and the presentation very nice. It's not cheap but it is not over the top expensive either. Parking is only on the street but I believe there is a parking lot around the corner

I took my wife and two teen daughters here for my wife's birthday. I read the reviews and the menu on Open Table and hoped it would be a hit. It was! Ivan, our waiter was friendly and attentive without being disruptive. I'd put the food up against any I've paid more for in the city. My peppercorn NY Strip was perfectly seasoned. Everyone was happy with every part of their meal. We finished up with desert and the made my wife's apple crumble into a Happy Birthday dish. Well done! Well definitely be back.

The food was delicious, fresh,
The food was delicious, fresh, wonderful presentation. The service was average...our party of 7 arrived 2, 3, then 2 between 5:30 and 6:10pm. The first two were offered a cocktail immediately; the second 3 waited 15 minutes to be offered a cocktail then got up and asked for the list; the last 2 poured their own wine. It was roughly 40 minutes from the time the first couple arrived to the last, and the server never asked if we'd like to order appetizers etc. (after 30 minutes, we tracked down our server and got menus to order them). After the initial lack of attention, everything went very smoothly...one comments re the tilapia...it was not pistachio crusted, rather it was chopped pistachios on top of tilapia...but very good nevertheless.

Excellent food in unlikely locale
Second visit to this place, and the food is just as great as it was the first time we visited a couple of years ago. The surrounding area is not too impressive, with the train station, a few office buildings and a generally empty feel on a Saturday night. But the restaurant is a gem, with a couple of small dining rooms on the first floor and a bigger space suitable for medium-sized parties on the upper level. Excellent choice of appetizers and main entries, and a good wine list. Highly recommended.

Great Food, Service
Restaurant was formerly David Drakes and the new owners have totally kept up the level of service. Prix Fixe menu choices midweek, craft beers, nice wine selection. Don't know if there is a kid's menu but there are good choices on the menu for older children for good eaters.

Outdoor dining is very good
Outdoor dining is very good however it was nicer when there was the entertainment - the pricing does seem a little high for the quality of food the food is good but the pricing is for great.

Recently had dinner at the Rail House. We were seated in a nice cozy corner of the restaurant. The ambiance was great...intimate, warm and romantic. The wait staff was excellent...attentive, but not intrusive. And thanks to recommendations by our waiter...the food was fantastic. I highly recommend this local gem (located next to the Rahway Performing Arts Center) and plan to visit it again real soon!!

I would go again...
Had a great dinner. Wife had Strip Steak and she was pleased. I had the bacon wrapped Monk Fish. Thought it was just a wee bit dry...even thought it was wrapped in great bacon...it was on the dry side. Service was good and attentive but again, we were the only people inside at 6PM. Granted that is early but we ahd tickets for a show in Rahway (Bubble Boy). I really enjoyed the Cesar Salad (dressing was very good). No music though...should have some soft background music. Got very quite.
Drinks were expensive...but you expect that in a "white tablecloth" restaurant.
Would certainly go again for a special occasion!

Recently my sister and her husband came from NYC to take my boyfriend and me out to dinner to celebrate his Bday He picked Rail House because we wanted to try it and it's right by the train station. Service was excellent, attentive without being pushy. Food was fabulous. We all thoroughly enjoyed everything that we ordered, spinach fondue to start, duck breast for the guys and bacon wrapped monkfish for the ladies plus a couple of desserts for the table (complete with birthday candle) We had a lovely evening and didn't realize until we were leaving at about 10:30 that we were the last customers left and nobody ever tried to rush us out. I'm always nervous bringing people to a place that I have not tried and Rail House did not disappoint.

Great place for a special occasion.
The Rail House is a great place to take your spouse/sgnificant other to celebrate a special occasions. This is a wonderful, small, intimate place. The service was excellebt. They did not rush you. While the menu is limited the choices and quality are excellent. We expect to be back many times.
