A lovely 80th birthday dinner
I'm from out of town, but wanted to take my Doylestown local Grandmother to dinner for her 80th birthday. We had a wonderful time! Our server Regina made the night very special and took great care of us. The food was wonderful and the cocktails were delicious!!!

Great Dining Experience!
Freight House was a lovely dining experience! The help (bus boys, etc) were young and forgot to refill bread basket, but our waiter was very attentive and professional. The tuna was delicious, prepared as it should be, with lovley jasmine rice and bok choy on the side...very tasty and nice for those weight-aware foodies. The filet mignon was also cooked to perfection with fluffy potatoes and a yummy vegetable on the side. The spinach dip was rich and creamy..beware...so good and rich. At the close of the meal, mini beignets (sp)were brought to us, as it was my boyfreind's birhtday. We dined early, but the bar scene started heating up around 9..no realcougar sitings :-) but a good looking crowd prevailed. A great dining experience.

The food, service and ambience
The food, service and ambience were absolutely wonderful. The pace of the meal was great. Our waiter was fantastic. It was our first visit and we will certainly go back again. I will be glad to tell my friends and family about it.

We arrived and was greeted
We arrived and was greeted and seated right away. The décor was very festive. Our server Patty, was very pleasant and attentive. The Easter Brunch Buffet suited everyone. I myself do not eat prime rib, usually disappointing, but I found myself getting another piece for it was delicious. My mother, who is very picky, enjoyed everything as well. We can not wait for the Mother's Day Brunch!

PRICELESS! The absolute BEST!
We celebrated my father's birthday at The Freight House this past weekend and it truly could not have been better. Our server, Rebecca was awesome. She went above and beyond and helped make the night what it was. Food was delicious and we will definitely be back again requesting Rebecca for our next visit.
Thank you so very much for making this celebration so special.

Best Train Station Turned Resto Eve
Located at the Doylestown Train Station, in a renovated previous station building, the Freight House is a great place to dine. I love the bar and patio options, but dininig in the main dining room is a treat, too. Beautiful decor, professional service, and wonderful food make a great experience.
The prices are what you would expect for fine dining. I had a flat iron steak with polenta and truffle-oiled oyster mushrooms and bacon. Yum. . . .
Save room for dessert. Worth it!

Loved the decor and the large
Loved the decor and the large booths felt like we were in our own litte cocoon. My dinner mates really enjoyed the french onion soup. The caesar salad was a bit small and bland, but the crab stuffed lobster was excellent. The mixed seafood grill also got a great review.

Nice place, decent food for the $
Nice place and good service. Boneless buffalo wings and salad were excellent. Filet was good but not worth the price. I have had many other steaks in the $40 range that were far superior. Overall a nice atmosphere, although mainly an older crowd.

The food was very good. I was there celebrating a birthday with friends and the food was amazing as well as the service.

Great interior and ambiance.
Great interior and ambiance. Convenient location at the Doylestown train station. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Wine list has a lot of variety. Staff was very attentive. In-house entertainment was quite good. An associate of ours had a wedding reception there; we understood why. Very roomy, cozy, and romantic, and adequate lighting. Can't wait for our next date, and I might even go solo on occasion.

Nice Restaurant next to train
Went here last night with family from out of town. I heard very good things about this restaurant. The food was absolutely wonderful. Everyone enjoy there food to the point where we did not have room for desert. Service to me was a little slow, but because the food could of been 6 or 7 stars out of 5, I gave them a 5 out of 5 overall. This would be a great place to take that special someone. The restaurant is right next to the Doylestown train station on Ashland street. They had a musician playing great music, but we were sitting really close to him, so I had trouble hearing conversations, which let me focus on the wonderful food.
Go here for a great time, you will not regret it.

Crab cakes wonderful, entire
Crab cakes wonderful, entire dinner beautifully prepared. But the real scene stealer was the peach martini, as well as the pear martini. Exceptional.

Summer evening dining
It was my first time there and we ate outside... very nice but at times it seemed we were forgotten. It wasn't a particularly busy night, and the server was very nice, but maybe indoor service would have been more attentive. The food was excellent-- the filet mignon was amazing!
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
The restaurant is located in the SEPTA train station in Doylestown and from the outside looks like a warehouse (because the building was one I guess...) so the first impression is a bit odd. However the interior decor is very nice and the food is excellent. There are lots of nice comfortable booths and plenty of open space to place large tables for groups. The bar had a band playing so there was some noise but the band was quite good. The service was efficient and friendly and not intrusive, so you could have a conversation without interruption. The food was fantastic - crab cake started was the best.

Night out no kids.
Very beautifully down interior design. Excellent food and service. First time will definitely go there again. Already recommended it to some of my friends.

"Blew away expectations"
We are new to the area and visited the restaurant for a birthday celebration. We weren't expecting much. Boy, were we wrong. Great decor, atmosphere, service and food. I'm happy we found a favorite restaurant in such a short time since moving here.

Great food slow service
We have been to the Freight House many times and the food and service have always been fantastic. Unfortunately, the bar tenders and wait staff have become extremely slow. I hope this isn't a the beginning of a decline for the Freight House.

We were first time patrons of the Freight House. However. Was recommended by friends that we would enjoy the food. Nice choices of food selection. We all enjoyed our fish and meat selections, loved the swordfish appetizers. Restaurant was aware we were celebrating my husbands birthday, was told that when we order desert they would put a candle in the dessert. However , we were so full from dinner, we didn't order dessert; perhaps they could have come over with a dish of whipped cream and a candle, which would have made our birthday celebration a bit more special. We would definetely return to enjoy another meat at the Freight house.

A TRUE GEM!!!!!
We had an awesome experience at The Freight House! The ambiance, the staff ad the food were beyond fantastic, and we will most certainly return. If you are ever in Doylestown, PA this restaurant is a MUST. You will not be disappointed.

Great value, vastly improved
Went there probably 2 years ago and had a good meal, but did not feel it was good enough to justify the price. We heard they changed chefs and were told we should go back. Wow, what a difference! The grilled swordfish was absolutely perfect, and the scallops were great as well. Both cooked to perfection, nice portion but not overwhelming. Left very satisfied. I would absolutely go back based on this experience.

We dine at the Freight House often and always enjoy it.

Watch the Salt
Most of our food was very good, but the sauce on the grilled ahi tuna was way too salty.

A Real Find
Awesome restaurant. Steak was like butter. Perfect for a quiet romantic dinner, and business dinner as well. I took a client and it was fantastic. Highly recommended.

We had an early dinner here and enjoyed it very much. The only issue we had was the noise from the bar. There was a political fund raiser in the bar and our table was the first one in the dining room. This is probably a one time event but could be a problems if the bar has a happy hour. Recommend that you dine later, after 7:00 PM, or request a table outside or away from the bar.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
dinner was excellent and the steaks were terrififc and tendor, they easilly customized any entree. waiter came back frequently.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the Filet and my wife had the Scallops. Portions were perfect size for the two of us. After Dinner we sat at the bar, which was beautiful. Wife loved the Smores Martini. Overall beautiful restaurant with good food and drinks.

We celebrated my sister's birthday Saturday night. All of us had diverse and delicious meals. My daughter tried swordfish for the first time and loved it! The birthday girl chose lobster stuffed with crab - loved it! My filet mignon was perfect! Ambience is beautiful but it was so dark that we had a difficult time reading our menus. Our waitress was hard to find when we needed her, but others help to serve us. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, but bring a flashlight to read the menu!

Great Restaurant & Service
Great for a romantic dinner for two! Our server made us feel very welcome and was excited about the menu. The food was delectable. I especially enjoyed the lobster gnocchi as my entree.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pricey but Good.
It was a bit pricey but the food was much better than I expected. They also accommodated my gluten free dietary need. It could be a nice place for a special occasion but the noise level was a bit too much for an intimate dining experience.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
There was a large party dining at the same time we were, so I expected that service to our table of three would probably be very poor. However, I was happily surprised. Although the servers were extremely busy, we were never neglected, everyone was pleasant, and the food was excellent. I hadn't been to The Freight House for several years, but I'll be back soon!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, great atmosphere!
This was my first dining experience at the Freight House and it was more than I expected! Great neighborhood restaurant and bar scene. Food was exceptional, service outstanding! I had a delicious scallop dish with a seasonal butternut squash risotto. The plating was amazing! Other members of my party enjoyed other menu choices just as much. I will highly recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.
