About Bennett's Chop & Railhouse
In every city, there is a natural gathering spot for city folk and neighborhood people in the know. This place in Saint Paul is know as Bennett's Chop & Railhouse. Located on West Seventh & Victoria, it is the perfect meeting place of uptown and downtown, of quiet neighborhood and big city lights.
It's called a chophouse because it specializes in a casual steakhouse atmosphere with top-of-the-line cuts of the finest meats. It is a Rail-house because it is on the old railroad line serving the city and rail drinks (as well as top brands) are served in the convivial atmosphere of the horseshoe bar.
And of course Bennett's is Bennett's because owners Joe and Meghan Bennett ensure that welcoming hospitality is always served. They have taken their decades of experiences with leading hospitality brands and translated it into an intimate venue where you're not only a customer, but more importantly, a welcome guest.

Bennett's Chop & Railhouse Ratings and Reviews
Food is good, price is reasonable, nice portions. Service was disappointing. A couple next to us actually got up and left when they hadn’t been waited on for a long period. Servers were pleasant but tried to take our plates by grabbing them and then asking if we were finished. We had only had our meal for a short period and were obviously still eating. Would go back if service improved.
Did the all you can eat snow crab leg. Kind of pricey. $37.95 but it was good and it comes with sides. Service was good. It's always plus when service is good. To me it's really important to have good food and good service. Good service really makes up for a some bad things. Not saying this place was bad but in general.
We went here for NYE because we had been here a couple of years ago and the food was good. Drinks were fairly priced and the service was good. It was the same this time. The place is small for the number of tables. I had to return my steak because it was not done enough, but this was promptly corrected.
Not much for ambiance, but the food is outstanding. My favorite is the seafood pot pie. It is out of this world!
Also a great place for those of us that want to keep an eye on sports while dining. TV's allow for viewing from almost any seat in the place. Street parking is available and convenient.
My boyfriend and I frequent this restaurant often however this visit and our last the steaks were not done as well, or to our liking, as in previous visits. Mine was overdone for a "medium" filet and his was underdone for a "medium" NY Strip. His was also a really tough cut - not nearly as tender as in our initial visits. We were hoping for consistency and that this would be our new St. Paul steak place but I fear we may be looking for another place - for steaks that is. (Mancini's used to be the place, but that too has gone done hill). We shall give this another shot for the "three strikes and you're out" type of deal. I do highly recommend this restaurant for their brunch, however. Delicious and scrumptious options all the way around!!!
Great experience. I commented about how nice it was to be able to see in the restaurant. They had their Christmas lights up...I wish they would leave them up. In fact it was the first time I noticed how beautiful the wood floors were...I never noticed them before because you could never really see them due to it being so dark normally.
First time, quite disappointed. New server and it showed. Table was by the door & bar. Noisy and every time door opened a blast of cold air came in, asked to be moved but were told no. Ribs were OK, the chicken was overcooked and dry and the steak was ordered Med but came out Rare. Server never checked back. We will NOT return.
Great spot for pregame. Great quality food, full entree or apps at low prices. Old school dinner club feel, great for conversation. Shuttle to Xcel and back and you can bring your drink onboard! Free parking in neighborhood with plenty of open places on street. No traffic to or from restaurant removed any stress with getting to the game. Whether you want to impress your date or catch up with an old buddy, this is a great choice!
My husband and I have been to Bennett's a number of times. Their steaks are great and we've never had a problem with service, although we have gotten to the restaurant, found that there was an hour wait for a table, and chose to go elsewhere. This past Saturday night was stressful. We had made a reservation a day ahead of time but there was no table when we arrived. We were soon seated next to the bar with a rowdy crowd and a sport event on the TVs. We had a direct view of what was going on in the kitchen. We must have sat for 15 minutes before our server took our drink order. Then it took her another 15 minutes to take our food order. It was an hour and 15 minutes from the time we were seated until our food arrived. My friend's steak was cooked medium well instead of medium rare, but the server never came back to check on how we were doing. He didn't enjoy his meal, and upon his request, was comped for the meal. Instead of enjoying our experience, we were anxious to leave, and I felt bad for my friends since I was the one who had suggested the restaurant. This was not a typical Bennett's experience. However, I will not return on a Saturday evening.
First time dining at Bennett's and we really enjoyed the evening. A rare Saturday night with no concert/ game crowd so our table was waiting for us when we arrived.
Everything was priced fairly, and the food was as we expected. People... this isn't a high end steak house. It is a family owned neighborhood restaurant that I believed provided a good value and food that was on point.
I will be back.
