At The Rail Ratings and Reviews
Food was good but the service was slow. I think our waitress was also helping at the banquet next door. The information on the app stated business casual but diners were there in shorts, t shirts, and flip flops...not what I wear to work. We sat outside and the piano player came out to smoke so that was gross while we were eating.
We went to dinner at the Rail on a Friday night with friends. A piano player provided nice music but not too loud so we could talk. Service was excellent , food came out in a timely fashion and was well prepared. We were not rushed and that allowed us to enjoy each other's company,
Prix fixe brunch buffet was a decent value, but items needed replenishing. Service to our table for beverages and hot food from the kitchen was slow. Empty tables around us weren't bussed, detracting from the ambiance. Nice view of the golf course. Piano player added some energy.
We have had Father's day there before in the other banquet room and it was very good! We did not enjoy the atmosphere nor the FOOD! We will not return. Service was very slow and now we can see why they changed the room and the buffet menu was horrible. They left off alot of breakfast food. Go to DEERFIELD you get treated better and the food is fantastic.
It was just an okay dinner experience. We got an appetizer that was basically a deep fried, seafood rice ball. It was pretty good until I noticed a hair that had been cooked into the middle of it. I showed the waitress and she took it off our bill but that definitely marred the experience. My entrée was a goat cheese gnocchi and it was okay when it arrived but as it cooled, it thickened and congealed, which wasn't good at all.
The three in our group this past Friday night enjoyed the happy hour wine and appys, In addition to the relaxation on the deck. We normally have five in our group; however two were unable to join us this Friday night. As a group, we have a happy hour every Friday and we definitely will be returning to the Rail.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. This being my third time was very comfortable with the attendant for our table, her concern as to how our meals are and most of all her remembering what the occasion we were there for celebrating.
Thank you for such accommodation.
The ambience At the Rail has always been very comfortable, with scenic views of the golf course and extremely comfortable chairs ~ which allows the guests to sit, relax, and enjoy a leisurely meal. This is especially nice at brunch, a meal that is designed for decadence and relaxation. On Sunday, the piano players are always gifted, playing an easy variety of standards, show tunes, jazz, and even a little Leonard Cohen. The brunch includes a modest but very fresh and well prepared buffet featuring salads, fruit, pastries and breads, breakfast standards such as blueberry pancakes, sausage, blintzes, chipped beef, parfaits, and so on. But for me, the highlight is always the tasty cocktail shrimp, and for my father, the raw oysters. The carving station featured an incredibly tender prime rib, as well as pasta and omelettes and eggs prepared to order. Also included, guests can order eggs benedict, cheesecake stuffed french toast, and bagels with smoked salmon from the kitchen. A selection of desserts provide the finishing touch.
The comfortable setting and the food make this a favorite choice of my friends and family for brunch to celebrate life events, but the setting is terrific for dinner, and lunch is an incredible value, particularly on warmer days when the patio is very inviting.
This was our second visit in six weeks. Food did not disappoint. Service was good. It was graduation weekend and the two of us were seated at a table for five-six ( only disappointment). Crab cakes were killer, as always. Strip steak was cooked perfectly. Accompaniments were a cut above the ordinary. Always room for their deserts. Will return for sure.
Our table was next to the window overlooking the golf course. The hostess was gracious and our waitress was attentive and very helpful (the dessert for our daughter-in-law and son was beautifully presented with a Happy Anniversary message in chocolate on the dish). They have an excellent wine cellar and delicious specials each day. Our food arrived quickly and was delicious.
The food was far below what I expect in this price range, especially considering what is available within just a few miles. The acoustics of the dining area were very poor, and the service left much to be desired. I will not return and will suggest to my friends and colleagues that they not waste their time and money here.
Usually the food is good but the Scallops were rubbery and the Pasta bland. The server knew NOTHING about the wine list. She was slow and not very engaging. Overall a poor experience. Rated as fair as the other diners enjoyed their meal. All had something different. Will go back but it will be a while.
Have been there a few times before and felt good about selecting this as
a Valentines Day / Birthday restaurant for my wife's special day. The food was
decent but I was extremely frustrated with the service. We were seated a few
minutes ahead of another couple who entered the restaurant at the same time.
We ordered promptly, but our food took forever to come out. The couple that
was seated after us was about to order desert before our entree came out. When
the waitress said your food will be out shortly, we didn't expect to be waiting another
half hour. Ourwaitress had no personality and had to be reminded a couple different times that we requested water. When we were checking out, I paid half on credit card and half
with cash. She brought the credit card back to be signed and I saw where she took
the cash ($62) but still charged my credit card the entire amount of the bill ($123).
When I brought this to her attention....there was no, "Oh, I'm sorry" or "my mistake".
She just took the card back and came back with a new receipt....NOT a credit for the
old transaction. I asked the manager about this on the way out and she at least gave
me an explanation. So overall, I was very disappointed with this experience. Mostly
because it was a combination birthday / valentines day celebration. I rarely complain
about anything service related as long as the person isn't rude. But this is the exception.
In spite of my previous positive experiences, I don't plan on returning after this negative encounter.
We had dinner here for Valentine's night. They called ahead to see if I wanted to order roses for my wife - nice touch. The food was good and the service was excellent. The dining room is very large with very high ceiling, so not the most intimate - but very clean and spacious.
Would definitely recommend.
Valentine's Day. Service was good. Food was only okay. Spinach salad had way too much dressing on it and was served with a soft boiled egg rather than hard boiled! That was strange - who wants a runny yolk in their salad? Crab bisque was just okay. Cheese platter, again, nothing great. My husband liked his scallops. Piano music was nice touch.
This was our third or fourth visit over the course of 2 years and each dining experience has been fantastic. Casey has been our waitstaff 3 of the 4 visits and she remembered us each time. She even remembered where we sat during each visit - amazing! We arrived early and sat at the bar while we waited for the rest of our party to arrive and the bartender was very helpful. Dinner was superb, as always, and I successfully talked the rest of the party into ordering the caesar salad served in the delicious edible parmesan cheese basket and ample portioned - several of us brought half of it home or the next day. Our jumbo lump crab appetizer and cheese board were outstanding as were our entrees. The couple who joined us had never heard of the restaurant but they vowed to be back very soon (as will I). Thanks again for a wonderful experience!!
