A Delaware Park Classic. Crisp Herbed Potatoes, Seasonal Vegetable
Crab Cake Sandwich
Brioche Bun, LTO, Fries or Small Garden Salad
Great place for a quality relaxing meal. I keep going back!
I usually have good experiences at the Rail and the food is usually delicious. However, this time the food was barely edible. We ordered a Filet Mignon which was severely over cooked and the vegetables that came with it were under cooked. We also ordered the Flank Steak tacos which were severely under cooked. The meat was so red and just bloody all throughout. The best part of the taco meal was the coconut rice. The saving grace of the entire meal were the wings we ordered as an appetizer, which we're glad we ordered since we didn't eat our dinners. The service was subpar. Our waitress was never around and she only took our orders; our meals were brought to the table and cleared by other waitstaff. Then when we were ready to leave, we waited a while for our waitress to come over to ask about the check. It wasn't busy so we're not sure where she was throughout the evening. Just not a good experience.
The food was delicious
The crab cake had little filler and had loads of crab meat. The house dressing to go with the side salad was delicious! We dined outside on the patio on a sunny afternoon so the ambience was perfect.
Saturday night dinner at seven. Will h social distancing it was very quiet. Service was excellent and food was good. Menu seemed reduced in selections
Hidden gem for sure! I had the short rib omelet special and my husband had the chicken salad. Cocktails and food were all delicious and the meal was shockingly inexpensive for the view and quality. The service was quick and the very nice manager even offered to take our photo outside! We'll be back soon!
Always comfortable dining with great ambiance and food.
You don't have to be a member to enjoy this lovely country club. Restaurant and veranda are spacious and welcoming. Service is attentive. Food is very good. Will return next time in Wilmington.
Service and food were great. Comfortable experience for a mid-week dinner in the COVID environment.
Always a great opinion. We always have nice experiences at The Rail. Saturday night did feature a rare steak that had to be sent back. Management did what was right and apologized. Sadly, the server was snippy after this happened, even though she was not at fault, except for perhaps not sticking around to make sure the steak was cooked correctly. Since this is the first time in a half a dozen trips this happened, it should be put in perspective. We will be back. Also kudos to the pianist who made the evening seem more special.
We had a very enjoyable dinner with friends. The menu was limited but offered some nice choices.
At the Rail was a pleasant dining experience. The staff was friendly, the service was quick, and the food was very good.
The crab cakes were excellent! Piano player was awesome. Great service. The room is large and dark, but plenty of social distancing space. Highly recommend.
We love the rail. It is a quiet restaurant and bar with great food and service. We never had a bad experience.
All was good until they kicked everyone out of the restaurant because “a tornado was coming” - it was only a rain storm. They overreacted, very unnecessary.
Great atmosphere, Great menu, Great service and Great Food!!!
Good food and place was empty because of the pandemic. We went on a Sunday and they have a limited brunch menu all day, so couldn't get an entree for dinner. Food was good and service was excellent.
The atmosphere was a little lacking, maybe because there were only 3 tables of people, but the food was excellent.
Great food , everyone complying with measures to prevent covid, good service and great view
Food and Service was good. I had the crab cake sandwich and my friend had the Corned Beef sandwich.
It was nice just to get out, they did an excellent job with social distancing and performing the other necessary precautions, the food was very good but it’s very tough to give a fair review when the restaurant is dealing with so many restrictions.
Enjoyed - friendly staff good food, lovely live music
The food is good however the menu is very limited which makes frequent visits a bit of an issue. Service and drinks are outstanding!
Our first time there we liked it, the menu was shortened because of covid which was disappointing but loved the dinner music. We will go back.
Great atmosphere which was clean an safe guards were taken. Friendly staff. Would definitely recommend
Great atmosphere and nice music for a family dinner.
Everything was great. Food & service were top notch. The drinks were fantastic!
Saturday evening say 6:45. Large group on one side of the dining area just three or four tables in use on the other side. Service was excellent food was good, the cheesecake for dessert was just OK. The piano background music was soothing and made up as an offset for the large groupOn the other side of the dining room.
We really enjoy this restaurant and don't visist as often as we would like. I love the parmesan cheese bowl for the caesar salad and thank you for allowing me to put the scallops on it! My husband had the crab cakes, which are always delicous and never disappoint! Looking forward to our next visit!
Everything from the food to the service was fantastic. My only complaint was that there were two large parties and the noise was deafening. Not much you can do about that though. Glad to see it was so busy. Will definitely be back.
Crab cakes were delicious but pricey. Would have liked to get more water.
The food was outstanding. The Rail knows how to treat people on a special day. The seating was very comfortable not crowded like some places do on a special day. We have never been disappointed in the rail.
Early Valentines dinner . Nice experience.
It is a wonderful experience to come and have a business lunch or catch up with a colleague within your community. Very nice menu selection of sandwiches, soups, salads, and entrees for lunch. The server was super sweet, professional, and always on top of her game. The staff were friendly and definitely recommend to anybody in the area.
Also have a wonderful Banquet Hall to host receptions and special events too.. Plenty of parking and very close to I-95 highway for those traveling through Delaware. 👍🙏👌
Always a satisfied patron! Food consistently good.
It was busy and we had to keep asking for different items. It was not as good as it has been in the past.
It was Birthday Brunch
Food was very good. Service was a bit slow due to several large tables. Value for the $$ was reasonable. Would go again.
Went to the Rail for my wife’s birthday party. Since it was Christmas time there were a few Christmas parties going on which raised the noise level which was expected. Wait staff was friendly and efficient.
The grilled vegetable salad was a nice addition to the regular line up. I wish they would change the potatoes too. The Old Bay seasoning is getting old.
