- QuicheOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 11/9/2014The quiche was excellent. The brunch without the buffet line is a great idea. Service was excellent.Special Features:
- Very goodCabinGirl14Dined on 11/1/2014Everything was so good. Had the frickles for an appetizer, really good beer batter with a kick of spice. Maybe horsradish? The bread was like home made. The salad was just lettuce but the dressing was so good! Had the balsamic. Husband had the strip steak special, very good. I had the grilled shrimp, nice and big and really tasty melted butter served with it. Only bummer, the shrimp were kinda cool. Wish they had been hotter. And on the expensive side, but worth it. I would go back, everything was so good!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- dscattOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/25/2014A nice neighborhood spot somewhat charming sitting in an old train car. Had the brunch and didn't find the food good for that, but evening meals are nice.Special Features:
- Very Average dining experienceLaurieBDined on 8/23/2014We were staying in the Alexandria area for an Anniversary weekend and I was looking for a special place for dinner. Weston Station looked so good on the website, but the food was pretty average. My husband's baked potato was hard and my twice baked was dry, only lukewarm, and not nearly the flavor I would have expected. Our steak was no better than what we could have grilled at home ourselves. For an average night out, the food was good, but nothing special. I expected a cut above for the price we paid.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Upscale menu that falls shortjbaumDined on 8/17/2014The onion soup is very good, however, ours came out just warm. My shrimp was overcooked, as was my wife's pasta. My wife stated she did not like her shrimp and pasta dish. The server (owner?) said they were experimenting with the dish. Why do we have to eat their experiments. The service was very good, as there were only two tables seated. It may be a good value, if you use a restaurant.com deal.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/9/2014Food was good but quite overpriced...plating was very unappetizing. My alfredo side should have been in a separate serving dish so as not to get mixed in with the steak blood/juices. Prices were very high for portion sizes and quality of food. Overall quite dissatisfied with the experience for our anniversary. My wife also felt quite pressured to purchase a glass of wine from our server. We likely will not return. We had been to this restaurant once before about nine years ago and the experience at that time was fantastic...sadly not the case this time.

- Needs improvementgirl2jazzDined on 6/15/2014We went for brunch. We were very disappointed. Food appeared to be store bought and reheated. Quiche was small and dried out. Desserts were probably old and not good. A few may have been okay. Not a very pleasant atmosphere. Lower level had a loud fan which made it impossible to have a conversation. upper level was okay for hearing. We won't go back. Too many other good places to eat.
- Dining experienceAnnieDined on 6/5/2014We recently enjoyed a very nice evening meal to celebrate a family members birthday who lives out of state at the Weston Station. So nice to see some unique items on the menu and their home baked bread is THE BEST! If you're looking for a place out of the ordinary, you must try the Weston. Very personalized service and great food!Special Features:
- Interesting locationImpresarioVIPDined on 5/24/2014Enjoyed meeting the owner and hearing her stories. The fish was good, spinach excellent. Great for an evening adventure as we were from out of town.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- SurpriseCollegeKidDined on 1/13/2014Was looking for a good steak place in an unfamiliar town, and saw this come up on OpenTable with mixed reviews. Decided to take a chance, and was pleasantly surprised. The food was great, service excellent, and atmosphere relaxed. Will go back next time I am in town!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- We brought friends from TexasDoglegDined on 8/17/2013We brought friends from Texas for a special birthday dinner. We had terrible service!!! Steaks were not done as ordered and had to be sent back. Do not intend to return to this restaurant.
- Back for MoreKroneyDined on 6/11/2013We were first time diners at Weston Station, out to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary. We'll be back several times before our 48th. Great history in the old railroad car, great atmosphere, excellent food (chicken marsala and walleye, and a free dessert for the occasion), and off-the-charts-service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The service was good, howeverOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 5/12/2013The service was good, however I ordered the small sirloin steak and it was the toughest steak I have ever had. I would not recommend the restaurant. Food was not worth the price. The soup was good.
- This place has gone to thedpassDined on 5/11/2013This place has gone to the dogs since the Weston's left. I will not spend another dime in that place or any other run by the current owner.

- Great meal and service. HadOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 4/13/2013Great meal and service. Had the walleye and one serving at our table noted a few bones. Our second time at this dining location and will stop again as we travel in this area for sure. Try the augratin potatoes for sure they are special.Special Features:
- Highly RecommendedOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 3/13/2013If you are looking for good food, this is the place. The steaks are absolutely fantastic, and so was the lobster. Based on a request made in our online reservation, a table to accommodate our needs was in a great location for us. A complimentary dessert was given for our anniversary celebration. There are some obvious regulars who go there, and it is easy to see why. The staff are friendly and helpful. At another table, the waitress remembered favorite orders and preferences. In fact, a week after we'd been there one recognized me in a totally different setting. There are some lovely selections for fine dining. For early bird dining, there are fantastic dishes at very reasonable prices. I highly recommend Weston Station.Special Features:
- We love Weston Station! AlwaysOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 3/2/2013We love Weston Station! Always wonderful food and great service. Steaks are out of this world and cooked to perfection each time we come! We brought a couple of newbies this time and everyone left very pleased and satisfied! We will be back:-)Special Features:
- Overall the meal was fine.OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/15/2013Overall the meal was fine. BUT The garlic mashed potatoes were mealy, watery and flavorless. The grasshoppers were slushy and not creamy (yuck).

One of our party of four, commented that it was the best walleye he had ever eaten. We all enjoyed our meal, excellent service, and dessert was amazing.
