Third time and will be back again ! Nachos, burgers and pizza were great ! The milkshakes are delicious ! And the boxcar of lavender martini was good but strong ! Service was just ok because she was very busy…..I felt like more help was needed .

We hosted a work anniversary for one of our staff. The service was amazing!!! Terrific selection of food. We enjoyed the Ahi tuna sliders - perfectly awesome! Everyone got a different burger and all were enjoyed. Cocktails were tasty, beer was cold and the adult milkshake was truly delightful.

Beautiful space, excellent service and delicious burgers! I appreciated being able to make a reservation and that the tables were not too crowded so we could enjoy conversation with our visiting family. The burgers were seriously outstanding - and the upgrade to CO Wagyu beef was totally worth it! I don't know how they cut the fries in the interesting shape they use, but it's perfect for a crispy yet tender chip! I didn't get to try a shake this time but I'm looking forward to that! We will definitely go again soon!

A quaint location next to the tracks but not noisily impacted by passing trains. Menu selection is good and spirits selection is good as well. Service was fast for fresh made entrees and if not so full we would have also tried their artisanal sundaes or floats!

After being seated for almost 20 minutes without service the manager, Johana, realized this and personally served our table. She was wonderful and made it a pleasant dining experience. The food was good and the prices were reasonable. Would definitely dine here again.

The food was great as well as the service. It was a bit too loud. Softer flooring and maybe some sound baffles on the walls and ceiling would help.
When we were leaving we noticed 4 or 5 shakes were on the counter getting ready to be served. They looked amazing!!
We enjoyed our meal and the view.
Please don’t consider this a bad review. Go here eat and enjoy!!

Food was good. Service could use some help. Server never cleared any empty plates from our table of 8 . Even when she came by to drop the check and back to pick it up.

food was good unfortunately the service was not. our server disappeared several times. at one point we waited 10 mins for a beer. when we were ready to get our check we waited 20 mins before stopping another server and asking if she could get him and/or our check. she was extremely rude and made it clear by her response and tone that she had zero interest in helping us. Eventually, a manager walked by and offered to check us out. Once we got the check and was filling out the paper... guess who shows up after being mia for 30+ minutes?? The server needs to be more attentive (and not just at the end when your tip is being calculated) and every employee there should be willing to assist even if it's just a matter of offering to get someone to help.

Great burgers and shakes. Beer drafts are menu is varied enough. Pizza crust is a bit bland (toppings, sauce, and cheese are good - Brakeman owners should go eat at Ducas to see what pizza crust can really be). Been to Brakemans a few times and will be back.

All-in-all, Brakeman’s was a good date night. Our server was attentive and friendly, but not over-bearing. The restaurant was crazy loud though! My wife and I ordered “well done” burgers, not wanting to risk too-under cooked of a burger...big mistake. Our burgers were completely over-cooked. Trust the medium well recommendation!

Cute little stop on our road trip for Spring Break. Started in one of the igloos but it had a hole that couldn’t be patched and the space heater wasn’t enough for the Texans, so we moved inside after a bit. Both were nice spaces. Hostess and wait staff were all very nice. Food was delicious

The burgers and pizza were fantastic! I wish we had saved some room for their milkshakes. We were lucky enough have a train pass. I would have liked to see the seating alone the windows set up as like a dining car. It would fit the ambience.
