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.

We had a lovely Valentine's Day Dinner. The restaurant was packed but neither the service or quality of food was negatively impacted in the slightest. They offered their usual full menu and several specials. It was wonderful. Unless you need white table cloths I don't know why you would choose a different chop house!

We decided to spend Valentine's Day at Bennett's and we're so glad we did. The food was tremendous (and very reasonably priced), the specials were inventive, my steak was grilled to absolute perfection and our server (Andy, I believe?) was incredibly attentive, knew the menu inside and out and timed the delivery of our meals perfectly.

A fantastic experience. We'll be back.

Great service! Food was ok. Pork chop dinner was a hit, but the wings were too salty. Crab cake was good.

Good start to our night, but not so much in the end. They have a small anti room to keep the cold out, but need a heavy curtain by the second door. The nearest tables freeze. Then the waitress raved about the carrot cake only to tell us they were out of it. Then in fact were out of ALL their deserts, even ice cream. Did not offer anything except sorry. Parking is horrible when they do a shuttle to Wild games.

Based on the menu and how the restaurant looked on Open Table, I was surprised that it was so old. The entrance seemed run down, the clientele all seemed be over 60, and it did not look like a place you’d go for a $35 steak or scallops. It seemed like a neighborhood restaurant and bar that had been around for 50 years. We almost went elsewhere, but decided to give it a try.
That being said, our food was good. The service was good. We had crab cakes, a bison burger and sliders. The fries were amazing!

Celebrating our anniversary and sister's birthday after a long day at Super Bowl activities. The restaurant is so comfortable and the menu is so extensive that it has something for everyone. We have never been disappointed. The hostess' and wait staff are superior. They are always friendly and service is prompted. The atmosphere is relaxed so you don't feel rushed.

a mini Mancinis. American Surf and Turf food., decent but over priced. Excellent drink selections and great service. Much louder than we were hoping it would be but tolerable.

First, we tried the Brusetta, the Rueben Rolls and the Crab Cakes. All three were very good. For lunch we all ordered the Chicken Pot Pie. The flakey crust was excellent as was the inside of the Pie. For dessert we had the 3 Fruit Tart. That was excellent as well. I would recommend everything we had.

I like the place. Chop Salad is spectacular. Great service. Comfortable. The food? Meh. Just OK. For the price I expected an exceptional meal. Didn't get it.
