First time here. Loved the food!! We were 5 people and we all thoroughly loved what we ordered. Would have preferred to sit in the back room but the round table we had by the bar was fine. Will definitely go back.

Ate at the Brass Rail early
Ate at the Brass Rail early on a Friday night. From the street, it doesn't look like much but the ambiance and decor inside are terrific if a little small. We had a reservation and were seated right away. The menu has lots of wonderful choices, including small bites and full entrees. Our meals (both steak dishes) were terrific--the food here is excellent. By the time we left, the place was hopping--very crowded with a lively bar scene upfront. Highly recommended.

Have been to Brass Rail more
Have been to Brass Rail more than a half dozen times and each time we go we reminded as to why we love this retaurant. Great service, great foood and great ambiance. Tables are not on top of eachother, you can actually have conversations and are able to hear eachother and great round table so everyone is a part of the conversation. This last time I asked the waiter if the bartender could make me a jalepeno margarita which was not on the menu, he told me no problem they actually have the fresh jalepenos and the drink was amazing. Any special requests or changes to dishes were met perfectly and with a smile.

The GEM in Locust Valley, NY
Love to come to Locust Valley to The Brass Rail, what .a great find. We come from Farmingdale, wish it was closer, but well worth the ride.
We have been there many, many times for dinner and special family occasions. Wed night it was for our birthdays and Mothers Day, we had Robbi as a server, very sweet, professional and put a birthday candle in dessert, without asking, sweet! Would highly recommend to everyone, and have.
It was noises because a very large group came in that couldn't all be sat int he bar area, but we didn't mind, it was fun! See you again soon, The Wilson's. This place is so busy, if you want a romantic dinner come early!!!

May 1 LI Dining Week
Had been here once before in another restaurant life this time took advantage of the wekly special: Chicken cordo bleu and Mahi 3 COURSE MEAL it was very good. I would have liked a little more spirited stuffing in my chicken (speck and gruyere a little light) and my wife would have liked a bit more spice in the blackened Mahi. They have a good handle on their cooking and food quality and the service follow up across the board was spot on.
Very varied menu wiorth a return trip, Gary..

So gald you came to LV
We really needed a restaurant in Locust Valley with good food and good servce. The staff is professional and friendly, but not too on top of you. They add something special to every dish. You can bring anyone and they will leave happy.

New to the area. Found this place through Open Table. I had the nightly special which was lasagna. It was among the one or two best lasagna dishes I have had in many years. The service was superb.

Gem in locust valley
Our first time to the Brass Rail and we will definitely be going back. Liked the wide selection of food, particularly the diverse appetizers. We enjoyed the soft shell crabs, mushroom risotto, grilled octopus and grilled artichokes. Portions are sizable particularly the cherry cobbler dessert. Altogether a fine meal and reasonably priced.

Early Saturday dinner
Stopped in for an early Saturday dinner with some friends, started of with 2 dozen oysters which were wonderful. With our entree we had a Pinot noir recommended by the staff, it wheat perfect with our meal. This is definitely my summer spot this year.

Good food but rushed service.
Food and atmosphere are great. For diners, sitting in the front by the bar takes away from the atmosphere. Service was too rushed.

Great food, service slow to start
This place always has consistently great food; this past Saturday night; it took a very long time until we were able to get a drink order; in fact I had to ask the hostess. After the waiter started dinner the food and the service were just fine. I just think that when you arrive (especially to a place that you have been to over 3 dozen times) a drink order should be taken by the hostess when seating you or by a waiter right away.

When I was initially seated,
When I was initially seated, I was left with no offer of a drink or wine list. After grabbing the waiter's attention, he made a great wine recommendation, did the initial pour - that was it. The waiter was knowledgable about the menu, once again, made some great recommendations but we had to flag him down again to get our entree brought out.
Overall, it was lovely dinner and I certainly look forward to returning.

Loved this place
I saw a review of this place and their burgers. So we went. We were shocked 'cause we expected a Berger joint and its so much more. A really nice restaurant. Every plate that went by we wanted!!! We will def go back and try several other things. Meanwhile the burgers were A1. The fries were fabulous. Pretty place and good service. A winner!

Another Lovely Dinner
Once again I was delighted to have booked at the Brass Rail for a celebratory dinner. Thank you to the wait staff for a job well done. The wine that was recommended was very, very good. All in all - a very memorable evening. Thank you!

my husbsnd ordered the shrimp and oyster PoBoy which was chockful of large shrimp and oysters done to perfection. The capecod sandwich was breaded in cornflakes and was crunchy while the fish was moist. then there was the shoestring fries.. we asked for them well done snd they were perfect. service was great! water glasses refilled. Food brought out at a relaxing pace. cappaccino hot snd with nice foam. A very successful evening.

Wonderful Small Plates!!
This Gastro Pub richly deserves the designation, since the food is excellent and it has the best selection of small plates, in fact there are 3 sections of the menu in addition to "Entrees" -- salads, appetizers, and small plates. These are so good that I have been getting combinations of them rather than an entree, and the people I bring agree! Go!

Lives up to its reputation
We'd heard a great deal about The Brass Rail and eat at its sister restaurant, Heirloom Tavern, frequently. The menus have some similarities but different choices, and The Brass Rail, being a wider room with higher ceilings, is far less noisy. The staff was warm, friendly and knowledgeable - our server was great at making recommendations, and was enthusiastic about the food and its preparation. Everything was delicious and nicely presented. Choices range from small plates and sandwiches to main entrees. It is indeed one of the best restaurants we've dined in in this area and look eagerly toward returning.

A friend recommended the restaurant
A friend recommended the restaurant and it was everything he said and more. The wait staff was efficient without being annoying. The food was a little bit different. Enough to keep it interesting. We live over a half hour away and it was worth the drive.

Great restaurant! Menu has
Great restaurant! Menu has many options to choose from as well as daily specials. Everything we ordered was delicious and the waiter was very friendly. He did a excellent job in explaining his favorite dishes. We took his recommendation and ordered the Sea Bass. It was the best Sea Bass we ever had. All the desserts are homemade. You have to try the cheese cake! We will be returning to The Brass Rail very soon.

First time visiors
We picked this restaurant because it had a diversified menu, with reasonable prices for todays day and age. The reservation was at 8:00. Our table was ready a nod waiting for us at 8:00. The appetizer salads were all fresh and delicious, and my husbands soup came nice and hot. I ordered salmon, prepared differently then the menu suggested. They honored all my requests, and it was delicious. Everyone at the table ordered something different, from pasta with lobster and shrimp to halibut, and everyone enjoyed their dishes. We would definitely go back, and definitely recommend trying it.

The Rail is consistently solid. Food is always good. Cheff Kent and his highly skilled kitchen star talent take great care in providing interesting creative daily specials and the regular menu offers so many comfort foods with a foodie twist that will not dissappoint. Always a great destination for flavor lovers.

This was our second visit
This was our second visit to Brass Rail and it didn't disappoint. The staff is friendly, our reservation and table request were honored and the service is excellent. The food is very, very good with a range of menu selections to suit all appetites and tastes, and is beautifully presented. We shared and salad and an appetizer which were divided in the kitchen and served individually to each of us. We look forward to our next visit. Highly recommend.
