Service was fantastic! We ordered the Mahi lettuce wraps and they were wonderful. The Brakeman Burger was a bit disappointing as it was dry and not very warm. The onion rings were could have been warmer but they were good. I would recommend Brakeman's; just hope the food is warmer. Great location, easy parking, great views :)

My wife and I decided to have a fun day out, and we had heard about Brakeman's and thought we'd check it out. The last time we were there it was the Depot restaurant. We love that it's right next to the railroad tracks - wish we could have seen some trains come by. Our waitress was outstanding!! Gave us some ideas for selections and always checked on us without being intrusive. The food was marvelous!! Just a couple things that would have made our experience even better. Install some booths... it would give the restaurant more of a train station feel. Also, do something about the noise. It was noisy to begin with but when a mom brought her two "energetic" boys in, it almost became unbearable. In fact, two people requested to be reseated because of the noise.

Great staff who were accommodating and accurate with our order. We went out for a birthday meal and it was really good food. However, some of the items seemed a little overpriced for what you were getting. The beer selection was limited but diverse. Overall a really yummy burger and great atmosphere.

Gluten free pepperoni, pepperoni , pepperoni pizza was awful. Soggy crust, very little seasoning, and only five or six slices of pepperoni. Very disappointing. French fries and chocolate milkshake was excellent. Burgers were okay but not really worth the price. Don’t expect we will go there again.

Onion rings and fried overly well done. The chili relleno on the hamburger was way over done as well. Would not return for a second visit.
Service was very good but did notice several plates waiting under the warmers for longer than necessary.

There was 1 server for the entire restaurant and when I asked about what the happy hour menu was the server told me to scan a qr code as he wasn't sure what was discounted. The fries were presented cold.

I think the poor service was a function of not having enough people to work, which happens when people are paid to stay home! The food was only okay - it was such a disappointment because the last time we were there (which was pre-covid) the food was really good, nice sized burgers and great fries. It's too bad because it's such a fun location. I hope they are able to get back to what they were.

It’s fairly new. The bar service was terribly slow. The food service was not exactly speedy. The server avoided us as opposed to telling us things were backed up. The room has a terrible echo that makes it hard to converse. It was also quite warm. The food was really good. I know help is hard to find right now, but the help that is there needs to actually do the work, even when it’s uncomfortable.
